I've always known something wasn't quite right. Periods weren't regular and I'd forgotten to take my pill so many times when I was younger but never fell pregnant. At the time I was relieved. I thought I was very lucky.
Married, 24 and wanting a child things are very different. I've been trying for a baby for over a year. Shortly after beginning to try I got diagnosed with PCOS. I wasn't overly concerned. But a year down the line with worsening symptoms and no luck with trying for a baby I'm starting to feel down for want of a better word.
I've been to see a gynecologist. They told me to loose weight and to go back on the pill. I was distraught at the thought of going back on the pill as all I wanted was a baby but however, I went back on it for three months and had some bleeding. So came off it again. My gp doesn't seem to have any advice or information to offer. I've been to see her a few times with abdominal pain, increased facial hair and my mood is very poor. I take anti depresssnts, I have to shave my face every morning and I'm just fed up not feeling like a woman. It's beginnning to put strain on my marriage and we are only a year married.
I think I'm posting this as a means of venting but also to get some advice on what I could try and mainly, to know I'm not alone in this.
Thanks for reading,
