My sister has that. It's been tough being around her since I know how much she wants a baby.

I just found out I have high testosterone right now, I have been told I don't have PCOS, but then again I have been told it is part of PCOS, where your cycles really off and long?  Mine have been 57 days the last couple. Did you have to use clomid or some other fertility treatment?

It is tough I started asking not to be invited to baby showers because it hurt thinking I couldn't carry a baby. How long has she been trying I.would be.more than happy to tell you the test and medicine and things that helped me

My periods were very irregular and had so many cyst in my ovaries they blocked my eggs from releasing. I had the dye test to know my tubes were clear. I was put on glucophage (for high testosterone levels) a baby aspirin and prenatal vitamins. I started clomid on the 5th day of my cycle till the 9th day would have the HCG shot on the 13 day with an ultrasound on 14th day to make sure I had mature eggs and was artificially inseminated right after.

My SIL has PCOS and endo. She has been seeing a fertility doctor for over a year now. All they want is a baby. I fear for getting pregnant because of it. I think it may put her over the edge if I was to. I can't even bring a baby or little girl up around her because of it. I offered to eve be a surrogate for them, but then flipped out to someone else about how date I offer that. I guess it wasn't the best thing to say?

The baby aspirin was VERY important my uterus lining was thin and wouldn't thicken each month the embryo couldn't attach the baby aspirin thickened the lining and helped me conceive

Its very hard to walk on egg shells for fear of hurting her. Surrogacy is a very tough decision and I commend you for being kind to consider it. People don't realize how much it hurts to see a baby and want one so bad that you cry just thinking you may never get to feel that. But I was infertile for 3 years and I have 2 wonderful daughters. My best friend got pregnant 3 months before me and was scared to death to tell me so I understand
