We found out last wednesday our results from his sperm analysis and my blood work. He has slightly low count but perfect mobility and shape. I, on the other hand, do not ovulate so I probably have PCOS but because my insurance doesn't cover any infertiality treatments, my doctor couldn't go over it in detail or perscribe me anything. I'd have to front the whole cost of it and since my husband and I now have to use all our savings on our car and moving to a new home I can't afford any of it. So she told me to get under 200lbs, which is only 140lbs to lose , and then come back in 6 months to start Clomid. I haven't stopped crying for a week straight. I already knew I had to lose the weight, but having my fears confirmed is just awful. Its gonna be another year at least before I have any hope to get a bfp and its already been 2 years. Meanwhile I am surrounded by at least a dozen pregnant women and at least 10 women who have recently given birth. And having to smile and act like it doesn't bother me is killing me little by little everyday. My husband is trying so hard to be supportive, but I know he just doesn't know how to handle this situation. I am just so tried of disappointment month after month I almost want to just give up and accept I will be childless but my husband just keeps begging me not to lose hope. I know all of you know where I'm coming from. Any tips or advice, anything from emotional support to supplement or diet advice would be greatly appreciated

I’m on my way out the door…so can’t type a lot…..but wanted to say being diangosed and treated for PCOS is not just an infertility issues….it's a treatment for your over all health and welfare! The imbalance of hormones cause many medical issues including issues with weight and mental health issues…..so your insurance should cover the diagnosis and treatment of PCOS as an endocrine disorder and NOT classified as infertility treatments!!!

Just a lurker, but wanted to agree with prior poster. My dr coded the bloodwork for PCOS and putting me on Metformin as "irregular periods". I would see if your dr can move forward this way or see if another dr- maybe even just your general practioner would assist.

Also, your weight is definitely impacted by PCOS...so losing weight at all is not the easiest task. Your body may not be processing insulin correctly (some PCOS'ers do while some don't), if that is the case you will need to be put on Metformin (or something like it) to help your body process insulin....which in turn will make the weight loss front easier.

Feel free to stop by the TTC with PCOS board...the ladies over there are a wealth of knowledge and would be happy to help you with some ideas. Don't give up!

yeah i was thinking the same thing about the insurance coding, with just labeling it as irregular periods. But the thing is my doctor didn't even say I had PCOS she just said the labs show I don't ovulate and I need to lose weight and come back in 6 months to talk about clomid. So I don't even know I am prob gonna get a couple of the labs and get a new doctor. But thats gonna have to wait till after all the craziness in my life settles I just gonna focus on losing weight for now.

thank you for the hugs I need them. I told one of my best friends the other day about not ovulating and she told me that maybe I'm not able to get pregnant now because if I had a baby now it would be really ugly so god is making me wait for a prettier baby. I wanted to slap her why must everyone be so insensitive
