Can I have POSC?
An_243304 posted:
Hi, I am a 27 year old mother of 2. About 6 months after having my youngest son, I noticed I started to gain weight and started having acne problems. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for about a year now and have been unsuccessful. I had gestational diabetis with my last pregnancy but don't have any diabetis problems now. I have always had a 28 day period but now my periods start sometimes 5 to 7 days early. Is a hormone issue a probable cause? I am really starting to fear that the doctor that delivered my last baby tied my tubes without my consent. He asked me if I wanted this done and I said no. But my doctor and I weren't getting along the last week of my pregnancy and I didn't have time to change doctors. He was rude to me the night he delivered my baby. A couple weeks later I went to him to get my staples taken out but before he came into the room a nurse came in and asked me to sign a post surgery tubal ligation consent form. I told her that I didn't have my tubes tied and she said she was sorry that there must have been a mistake with the paperwork. I didn't think anything of it until I suddenly became infertile. When my periods come now they are heavier than they have ever been and very painful with small bloodclots. My sister said she started having these painful periods and clots after having her tubes tied. So I don't know what is wrong with me. I will go see a doctor about all this as soon as my insurance kicks in. Until then, I just wanted to get some opinions. Any input would be appreciated. Thank you, M. C.

I would say go to a Dr. and have it investigated. I have PCOS and they say once you finally conceive the problems become less intense not the other way around. I would definetly get checked out.

Thanks, so you're saying this is something that is more common among people that don't have children yet?

PCOS can be a reason for some women to have trouble conceiving. Irregular periods, unpredictable ovulation, and hormonal imbalances are a nightmare when you're trying to get pregnant. My OB told me and my sister that after having a baby, a lot of women see their issues get better or even go away.

Ok. So you're the second person that has said it gets better AFTER having a baby. I have two and never had trouble conceiving them. So that may rule out PCOS. Thanks for the input.

I am not sure if that is completely true...I have 2 children, ages 9 and 7, and TTC with my husband for over a year, just recently found out I have PCOS and having a VERY hard time conceiving
