U/S: Saw string of pearls :(

Well, I had an U/S this morning and the string of pearls and additional cysts conformed that I have PCOS.  I knew it was coming based on my lab work, but it didn't make seeing the cysts any easier. 

I know many people get pregnant with PCOS and that this is just a roadblock in our TTC journey, but I'm having a hard time being optimistic right now.  I feel a little numb.

We meet with our Dr on the 9th to talk next steps.  I'm hoping my spirits lift once we have a plan in place at that time.

  • I'm sorry. : (  The disease definitely sucks, but at least you have a diagnosis and know where to go from here.

    Thanks Holly.  I just need to keep telling myself the same thing. 

  • ((HUGS)) to you.  Did you have any idea you had PCOS before you went to the doc's?  That would be so hard, just having it come from left field.  :(

    I'm on CD97 right now.  I went in to see what was going on and why I wasn't having AF about 2 weeks ago now.  I had blood work done and the results that I received last week basically indicated it was PCOS, although I haven't talked to my Dr. yet.  (LH:FSH = 14.3:3.8, testosterone = 178)  I had a feeling I was going to see the string of pearls on the U/S today.  Still, it doesn't make things easier.

  • *hugs*  .. I just found out I had PCOS about 6 months ago, pretty much the same way you did.   Look into DCI suppliments from chiralbalance.com, they've done wonders for me.  
  • Sorry :( That definitely sucks.

    Thanks, I'll look into it. 

    I really appreciate the support from everyone. 

  • I'm sorry!  PCOS is definitely just a small roadblock, though-- plenty of people overcome it and get pregnant, some even quickly!  It is an emotional diagnosis, though, and will take some time to digest.  I funneled that emotion into planning low carb meals and getting out and walking/jogging  which was both good for my emotions and my PCOS (and did help shorten my cycles somewhat).  So, if you aren't already on a nutrition/exercise plan, consider adding that in even before the 9th.

    GL to you!
