Polycystic Ovary Syndrome...

Ok so Lance and I have been trying to have a baby since feb '08 and I missed my period and was so excited! I then took a HPT and it read NEG. I then waited a month after my missed period and took another HPT and still NEG i finally went to the drs office where they did 2 blood test and they came back NEG. I then have kept Walgreens in business solely on HPT's lol so I have had Dr appoinments after Dr Appoinments and Blood Tests and Today I finally was given Answers! I haven't had a period since March 17th and its now May 27th and Aunt Flow still has yet to come...well she won't be coming for awhile :( I had an ultrasound done today in which I was praying they would find a little peanut however all there was to find was dozens and dozens of Cysts in both ovaries! The tech then explained that it looks like i have Polycystic cysts which she explained that basicly most women have 2 or 3 cysts i have dozens..also when the egg usally gets released my body doesn't it instead grows bigger and splits into multiple cysts and cause me to miss periods. So I then Talked to the NP Lauren and she gave me the results of my blood work and told me that my testonstone levels were high and that the ultrasound confirmed the polycystic cysts and that my pregestrene levels were low and that my fasting insulin was on the high side. Diabetes ru nin my family like crazy! My Grandmas twin died of comlications with Diabetes and my grandpa on my moms side has diabetes along with an aunt and an uncle. She said with polycystic ovary syndrome it can cause diabetes so she perscribed me Metformin because she said that helps the insulin levels and helps to get my period also. My Grandpa was on that medication before and my aunt said it wasn't very good for him. I am a little worried about taking it. my grandmother has had Polycystic cysts before and she was able to get rid of them naturally. I would like to do what she did and if that doens't work then go on Medications I am not a fan of Medications at all! and my body is not use to those either! I found a website that has tons of natural ways its http://www.pcos.insulitelabs.com/ my mom gave me this website and i'm excited to read more and see what i can do to get rid of this. Its frusterating to me because i have always tried to eat healthy and excerize and do the right things and i try to not worry about it cause that doesn't help at all. So for all those who are wondering if the McGees are prego the answer is NO. As much as I know thats a question everyone asks people who are LDS and have been married as long as me and Lance have been but believe me when I am Pregnant I will shout it out to the whole world! until then those who have babies hold them a little longer tonight for all the women who haven't gotten there Miracle yet. love to you all

Brittany! I'm sorry to hear this...but at the same time I am so happy for you that you have answers! It's hard to hear the truth as to what is going on, but now you guys can work on a solution! Good luck with everything!

Hi Lance & Brittany-

I was just searching blogs and found yours on my sister, Cayla's blog. One of my good friends had this same situation happen to her and she was like you in wanting to try natural cures vs. medication. She went to an acupuncturist and with the help of acupuncture and the natural herbs they gave her she was able to get pregnant (it did take her awhile but not too long). She just had baby #2! Try it and hopefully it will work for you too!

Best of luck-
Cara

Brit! I totally feel your pain, I haven't had a cycle in over a year and no one can figure out why! It can be frustrating but it's good to know we have an amazing God who has a bigger plan than we know! Hopefully you and I get pregnant at the same time!

I have been following this blog for a while now and today i felt like i should share my story because i was a victim too. I had endometriosis for 18 years and i never thought i would ever get a cure due to the terrible symptoms i had and this made it impossible for me to get pregnant even after 12 years of marriage and it was a serious issue. I got to know about Dr. Aleta who treated someone and the person shared a story of how she got a cure and let her contact details, i contacted Dr. Aleta and she actually confirmed it and i decided to give a try too and use her herbal medicine that was how my burden ended completely. My son will be 2 this december and i am grateful to God and thankful to her for medicine too. If you have (Endometriosis, PCOS, Fibroid, Ovarian cyst, Ectopic Pregnancy or any infertility issues) just reach her on (aletedwin @ gmail. com) she has professional advise and a cure too.
