Need Advice.
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

Hello all. I'm new to the group and the PCOS journey. My doctor told me only because I requested my paperwork from her office. I learned that I have PCOS and a Bulky Uterus.

Hi Lmtgal2954. We're trying to have a baby but nothing is working. I'm only 29 and my husband said no to the hysterectomy which I wholeheartedly agree with so what do we do?

Abnormal Bleeding !
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

Hello Everyone!

Has anyone else experienced prolonged bleeding while having PCOS?? I’ve had this “period” since December 2017 and was recently put on birth control to stop the bleeding due to becoming anemic. I’ve had a Pap smear and it came back “normal”. Is there something out there (besides birth control) I can take to stop this issue?

Thank you,

PCOS,Heart Shape Uterus
A myPCOSteam Member asked a question 💭

I’m goning to ask the big what “,If?”
If I’m able to get pregnant, what are My chances, and if I just need to go ahead and have a hysterectomy. I know first is the ovulation kit to see if I do ovulate. It just the not knowing. I’ll be 30 this year and was diagnosed with PCOS at 22 and then at 28 found out my uterus looks like a heart. Insight would be very helpful and encouraging. I don’t want to go as far as IVF, just cause I don’t want to put my mind, body, or relationship through that.

I had to change my diet and what I was eating to help my body get pregnant. The trick after was keeping it. I bleed excessively.
