  4. QUESTION:Poly Cystic Ovaries will cause probs for Pregnancy ?
    Halo guyzzz I juz wanna to knw weather polycystic ovaries & fibroids will cause prob for the girls to conceive(Pregnant) !!!If U knw ne solution to rcover fromt his plz mention it… thnx

    • ANSWER:Yes it does/can, I am 33 and cannot have children. with pcos the eggs are never released, therefore causing a cyst in the ovaries. Pcos is a condition that is not just your reproductive system but an endocrine condition as well. Your body does not produce hormones/estrogen as it should or too much testosterone, etc. You can become insulin resistant, such as me, making it very hard to lose weight, which is usually a big issue in pcos when trying to conceive. Some say weight loss is key to overcoming pcos and infertility. I never had periods until a year ago when I started losing a lot of weight, and exercising, now I have not missed a month in 13 months. There are a lot of websites you can research this on that will give you better information that you can get on here.

    • ANSWER:I was in the same situation a year ago and I’ll tell you what happened to me. We were trying and trying for a baby…I stopped having my period for like 3 months and I was so excited but my tests were all neg. So I went to my doc and he said that when you want to be pregnant that badly your body can trick itself into missing your period. They said to stop stressing about it and it would happen easier and quicker.I was like ooooooo sure! Well finally after months of trying and failing we finally decided to wait a little bit…well even with no period for 4 months I GOT PREGNANT! And our baby girl is now almost a month old! I hope this helps you! Good luck sweetie!Oh and my doc also said not to have sex everyday because then your husbands sperm is less concentrated. Have sex every other day or every 2 days.
