I found out i had pcos in 2011, my husband and i have been trying for two years to get pregnant. I didnt want to be put on meds, so finally i put myself on a dite and cut out all soda and white carbs. i did this for about 2 months and now i am 12 weeks pregnant!! and i couldnt be happier!! but i do know that im still at risk and it really scares me i am a smoker which i have cut down a whole lot and working my way to quiting! my doctor told me that everything seem to be going good and that by my next appt we would be able to listen to the babys heart beat! Just wondering if anyone had any tips for me or if there is anything i can do to reduce my risk of miscarriage!!???

I was diagnosed with PCOS in early 2013 as well after going off birth control pill. I am a little over weight, but my husband and I wanted to try for another baby. My doctor told me my best chances for another baby were the meds, which could also help keep blood sugar lower in case of diabetes. After about a year of trying to conceive, it finally happened!! We are now just over 22 week pregnant and baby is doing fantastic. I'm also not gaining near as much weight as I did with either of my previous babies.

For what it's worth, I came upon this article about PCOS on the website from some health expert I came upon in an issue of Woman's World. She seems to know her stuff, and I thought that since I was reading this very article an hour before I stumbled upon this thread, that perhaps serendipity was in order.

Anyway, here's the article: http://www.pamelaegan.com/polycystic-ovarian-syndrome-pcos-bpa-leptin-resistance-and-other-unknown-health-risks/
