I found out in 2003 that I had PCOS. I have been married almost 4 yrs now. I never got pregnant. When I was 19 I got pregnant with my daughter she will be 9 yrs old next month. I started the Clomiphene last month. I'm also on Meteformin which I have been on for a couple of yrs.Just found out today that I'm not pregnant. I also found out Aug the 8th that I have endometriosis the Dr couldn't laser it but the dr had to laser both ovaries do to the fact the cyst where blocking me from ovulating. I'm starting to wonder if I'm just wasting my time. I did ovulate with the 1st round of the clomiphene. All I want to do is give up and just cry. The dr says that I need to have a hysterectomy. But the dr doesnt want to do one because I want to have another child. But I have days that I just want to give up and just do the hysterctomy. I really dont have anyone I can talk to about this. When I try to talk to someone they just tell me just be glad that God blessed you with the child that you do have. No one understands what I'm going through. My husband is just scared that its going to send me into a deep depression. So I really dont let him no how bad this is effecting me. Someone please help me and give me so advice.

Just bear in mind that a lot of women on here would give anything to have even one child. We do understand the pain you're going through, but it is very hard for us to sympathize because some of us have been through multiple surgeries, miscarriages, thousands of dollars spent on treatments, and still have no children. We worry that we might NEVER have a baby. It's not that we don't care, but we know that it could be worse.

Hello my name is Ashley and my husband and I have been trying to conceive for 2 and a half years now. I was diagnosed with PCOS in July of 2010 I started on Clomid and Metformin. I personnally can not take the Metformin it makes me go to the bathroom alot. I continued to take the 100mg Clomid in July to October of last year where we were blessed with our first pregnancy we lost the baby at 9w3d. They told me to wait 6 weeks to start back on the Clomid. I took 5 more rounds ovulating every time. Just as we were getting ready to go to a specialist to talk about IUI's I found out I was pregnant. I carried that baby to 17w3d and we had a baby girl on September 19th 2011. I'm supposed to wait now 3 months before they let me take the Clomid again. I myself am a firm believer of Clomid and you ovulating every time is a great sign. I've read tons of blogs of people who it did not help at all. If you are ovulating maybe give it a few rounds. Ask them to give you an U/S so you can see if maybe there are cysts blocking the follicles. I had a cyst rupture on May17th of this year I was in the ER and on May21st on had my period took my Clomid and got pregnant that cycle. I hope this helps. I know how it sounds some people thinking cause you have one child already. I'm not judgmental at all. I really do believe that you are grateful for the one child. But when your heartaches for another baby, another life you help create. You can't help feel the way you do. Please stay positive and remember other people out there are feeling the same way, and you are not alone.

Hi, my name is Jenna. I know that how everyone feels is different, so I won't say that I know how you feel, but I can say that I have a pretty good idea of how you feel. I don't have any kids yet, and I recently miscarried on my 1st pregnancy. My husband and I have been trying to have kids for almost 5 years. I was diagnosed with stage 4 endometriosis in 2008, and then more recently diagnosed with PCOS. Since my miscarriage my endo has flared up. Don't give up hope! How do you feel? If you feel like you are missing a part of your family, then don't give up on more kids. see if the doctor can go in and cauterize and remove what endo he can, then have you go on whatever meds are needed for you to get prego again. Its really hard, I'm not going to lie, but you are a strong woman. That you've dealt with both this problems for so long is proof of that. If you honestly feel like you're done having kids, then go ahead. Just listen to what your heart is really telling you. Let us know if we can help you with anything else, sometimes all you need is support and a "shoulder to cry on".
