Hi guys, so I just came across this forum and thought to give it a try. I have been unsuccessful at conceiving for over 3 years now with prolonged periods and months without having periods at all. I had sever depression and mood swings and I never knew what the cause of the problem was. Whenever I told my gp that I’m having negative thoughts and mood swings, they would just brush it off.
My gynaecologist didn’t investigate the cause of infertility properly until the start of this year (of course covid further delayed everything). I had a hycosy and It has now been two months since I’ve been diagnosed with pcos/pco (still unsure what the difference is). I’ve started getting a lot of acne since then although I’ve never had issues with acne.
My gynaecologist has prescribed Metformin after I insisted to go on it as it seems to have helped a lot of gals i know. However I’m appalled by the little research out their on pcos and unexplained infertility. GP hasn’t recommended any changes in lifestyle or diet. My BMI is 26 which I’m told is normal but I’m still trying to loose weight if it helps with conception.
I was recommended for laparoscopy but the second gynaecologist had a difference of opinion and recommended IVF (I feel like doctors are not even sure when they prescribe a treatment, they’re just experimenting what will work and what won’t).
Any sort of advice would be much appreciated as I’m holding on to a small shred of hope left in me.
