PCOS and Baby

       Nine years ago, I had been diagnosed to have PCOS or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, but, what does PCOS mean?

       I started to feel uncomfortable when my monthly period stayed for two months straight. It was too light, that it comes only in the morning, and stops in the afternoon. I was afraid to ask my mom to accompany me to a doctor, so I went to an OB-Gyne by myself. I went to an OB-Gyne who knows my family, so I would be more comfortable during check ups. After some questions and family health background, she requested me to undergo a Transvi, or Transvaginal Ultrasound.

This is a type of pelvic ultrasound used to look at a woman's reproductive organs, including uterus, ovaries, cervix, and vagina. It uses and internal probe or transducer for closer access to the structures that needs evaluation.

       After my ultrasound, the doctor told me that I have this thing called PCOS. The OB-Gyne explained everything to me, but, back then, I didn't quite understand how it was going to affect my body. My primary concern then was if I will be able to get pregnant by the time I wanted to.

       PCOS or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, is one of the most common female endocrine disorders. It is a health problem that can affect a woman's hormones. It can cause unwanted changes in the body, period problems, and it CAN make a woman difficult to get pregnant due to infertility. PCOS can also cause obesity and acne.

This is an image of affected ovaries seen through a Transvaginal Ultrasound


       I was too paranoid about that "difficulty of getting pregnant" even at a young age. I really love kids, and wanted to raise my own children. I started taking care of my nephews and nieces at a young age. I was too worried not to have my own. I was even advised to get married before the age of 24, so I wouldn't have a hard time trying to get pregnant.

        For treatment, my first OB asked me to take PROVERA. This is a medication used to induce a period in a woman who has irregular periods. It helped me have my normal period back after 3 days of taking it, so I continued as per required by doctor. But I had to seek for my OB's advice after three months of taking it. taking Provera resulted to severe acne, and gain weight. But she asked me to continue taking the meds, with METFORMIN.

       METFORMIN is an anti-diabetic drug sometimes used to treat PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), although it is used chiefly to help control Type 2 diabetes. But some smart doctors discovered that it can effectively treat PCOS as it helps in ovulation and pregnancy. It can also help reduce weight.

       After six months of treatment, I had my second ultrasound, and my ovaries were cleared from PCOS. But, I had to go back to my OB-Gyne after a year, because I've been seeing acne on my face again, and I was terribly gaining weight. I never came back to my first OB-Gyne, after she joked around and told me that I wouldn't be able to get pregnant anymore. I was too confused and tried to get help from different OB's near our city. And I even stopped the treatment because I thought it was useless.

       When my boyfriend and I always talked about the future, I was inspired to take treatments again. So if ever we decide to get married, there'd be a hope for pregnancy.  I tried to look for an OB-Gyne AGAIN, to help me with PCOS. My period was regular, but, I had severe acne again, and my biggest weight gain ever. I met a good doctor, and advised me to combine Metformin with ALTHEA.

     ALTHEA is a 21- cycle birth control pill product released by Trust Family Program or TFP. It is referred to as TFP’s “beauty pill” because it has the same formulation as that of the more expensive Diane-35. With Metformin, for the first three months, I can still see acne marks and I gained more weight. But, my body had adjusted easily and gave me good results.  I started to take this treatment seriously one year before our wedding. I was hopeful that this would result to a positive pregnancy test in the future.

       November 2011, I stopped taking ALTHEA, but continued taking Metformin until December 30, 2011. My last ultrasound showed that my LEFT Ovary still has PCOS. I had two periods for December 2011. First was Dec. 4-7, and December 27-30... Nice timing for our wedding day huh?! =)

       We got married last December 30, 2011. I had missed my period for January, but it gave us a negative pregnancy test. I had my period on February 1-4, 2012. From January, I always felt sick. I had fever, diarrhea, migraine, etc. My grandmother once said that the reason why I've been sick for long, is because my body has been preparing for pregnancy. I wanted to believe that, of course. =) But, I convinced myself that all of these were caused by my withdrawal from the pills.

       Last March, I felt more sick and always had fever. Especially every morning to afternoon. When my period got delayed once again, I decided to try another pregnancy test, but it resulted negative. I never told anyone I took a pregnancy test. But after three weeks of delayed period, everyone suspected me being pregnant. I tried to ignore them and even got mad at my sister and husband when I heard them talking about pregnancy. During that time, pregnancy symptoms were already existing, but I was too in-denial, because I didn't want to see a negative pregnancy test again. You know, it's really frustrating to see a negative PT, when you already wanted to have a baby.

       Hubby had convinced me to see a doctor, to find out what has been happening to my body. Hubby said, he really knows that I'm already pregnant. I was just the only one who didn't know. At the ER, we were asked to wait for an hour for another pregnancy test. I was too nervous, and I even asked, why does it have to take that long for them to tell me that I am sick, and that I'm not pregnant. Then the doctor came, her eyes were smiling, and showed me a POSITIVE PREGNANCY TEST! Tears of joy really dropped, and asked the doctor if it was okay to cry. During that time, I was 4 weeks and two days pregnant.

      Here's our baby's first picture:

9 weeks and 4 days =)
      On this day, baby is 13 weeks and 6 days old in my tummy. So if you are one of the many women who is trying to research about pregnancy and PCOS. Don't worry, it is possible. Just take good care of your health, food intakes, and do not be afraid to seek for OB-Gyne's advise. Look for someone you can comfortably share stories with especially regarding your reproductive health. Find the one who is willing to reply to your text messages or calls when you have emergency concerns or questions. When you found the one, stay with her. And she will help you all through out. Think positive and do not believe that you won't be pregnant for the rest of your life. Just be patient. Do not be pressured. Do not be like me who worried too much about pregnancy.

      And most of all, PRAY and BELIEVE in HIM.  God will do the rest.

      I never expected that I would be sharing this story to women who had PCOS like me, I used to be joining forums and discussions, and continued searching for success stories about PCOS and Pregnancy. I hope I would be able to inspire women in this condition, and hopefully, one day, the one reading this blog, will also be sharing her happy story.  =)

       By the way, my left ovary, which remained polycystic over the years, was the one that produced a fertile egg... So don't worry. Everything is possible.

    2. yes sis, pcos din ang concern ko. kaya lang isang taon na kong hindi bumabalik sa ob ko. sabi kc ni hubby, try daw namin nang walang iniinom na kahit ano. kaya eto, wala pa rin. sept.2009 ko nalaman na may pcos ako. una pinag-provera ako, then 3mos Diane pills, plus Iberet (folic acid), vitamin E (for me & hubby).after 3mos of pills, pinag-clomid na ako, Iberet & vit.E pa rin, plus Neurovit (anti-stress daw). kung magkaron daw ako, balik ako sa kanya. kung hindi ako nagkaron, balik ako sa kanya after a month. eh kaso nagkaron ako.so check nya kung nasa 28-day cycle yung period ko...nung wala sa 28-day cycle, pinag-pills nya ko ulet for 3mos again. my 2nd clomid cycle was negative once again...so my hubby decided na wag ako uminom ng pills. kaya eto, nganga!!! at dahil natatambay na naman ako sa Cosmo at nabasa ko tong blog mo, bumalik na ko sa pag-take ng folic acid & vit.E. try ko rin bumili ng Metformin maybe tomorrow. anong brand yung Met mo sis? pwede bang generic? sis, mas madalas ako sa FB, pwedeng dun na lang tayo mag-chat if its ok w/ u.(Junnifer Joi Dela Paz) thanks! :)

  6. hi sis, thanks for sharing your story. Saw your post sa cosmo. I'm so happy for you. You gave me hope na magkababy rin ako.

    If you'll read my post sa cosmo (aka josaidamaer) eh medyo pang-MMK ang story.

    Can you share ung contact numbers ng OB mo? medyo nalalayuan ako sa location ng hospital nila but if they can really help me, Im willing to do everything!

    And im curious, how much yung fee sa check-up and transvi? Dapat kasi mag undergo ako transvi sa St.luke's mga year 2010 and that time nasa P7k ata fee dun.

    1. Hi sis... Ganun din sakin, right ovary ko lang yung gumaling. Pero diba? sabi ko nga, yung fertile egg ko nanggaling sa left ovary... always pray sis.. magiging okay din lahat. ako kasi nalaman ko nung 18 ako, and medyo matapang ako na magvisit ng magvisit sa ob palagi. at first, I didn't know kung ano ba tlga magiging consequence ng pcos, pero nung nagsisearch ako sa net, nalaman ko nga na madaming girls na may problem sa fertility pag may pcos. Kaya ilang years din ako nagworry about pcos. Namimiss understood kasi ang PCOS eh, akala pag meron ka nun, ikaw na may diprensya. Pero sa totoo lang, malaking percentage ng female ang meron nun... Basta sis, alagaan mo sarili mo. Stress can also affect you and worsen your PCOS. Message mo lang ako pag kailangan mo ng kausap.. =) Maging open ka kay hubby, and sana maging open din siya sa sperm count. Balitaan moko ha... God Bless!

    1. Hi Sis, madali sabihin, pero mahirap gawin... I hope mawala frustrations mo everytime na nagkaka period ka.. Just be positive, isipin mo nalang na may next time pa para makapagtry. Yung metformin ko is ritemed. yun yung nahiyang ko eh. nung una, tinetake ko lang siya pag naalala. pero nung siryoso nako, 2x to 3x a day. depende kung anong feeling ko after ko uminom ng first met sa umaga. tip ko sayo, pra dika masuka pag umiinom ka nun, sanayin mo muna yung sistema mo sa isa lang muna, then 2, saka na 3 pag kaya mo na... hmmm... sabi nila sakin before, If you're taking metformin daw, may 2 options. take it before meal, usually, gumagawa nito, yung mga tao na mas kailangan effect ng contents niya. like sakin, tumaba kasi ako because of pcos. So pra pumayat din ako, and mas mabilis effect sa PCOS, before meal ko iniinom. Pero nung dipa sanay body ko, after meal. Usually kasi pag before meal, yun daw yung mga maintenance lang. eh diba pag pcos ka, bawal din tumaba? so un, before meal ko iniinom pero kakain ako agad. Yung Vitamin E namin ni hubby, Vit E with Selenium... pinainom samin yan after ko madelay, pero negative just like what happened to you. Basta balitaan moko ha. Be positive sis. God Bless. Pray ka palagi... =)

  11. Hello sis Karen and Issa, ako kasi nag tuloy tuloy lang ng treatment for a year with Met and Althea bago yung wedding namin last Dec, sa Folic, Iberet Folic yung dati ko pa iniinom since I found out n may PCOS ako. Tapos January ako nag Vit e with selenium. You can buy it sa Mercury Drug, brown yung bote. Mas ok kung tuloy tuloy lang kayo magtreat. like sayo sis karen, minsan lang kayo magkita ni hubby. Pag kasi tinigil mo, para kang babalik sa start pag tinigil mo.

    So para clear, ito yung naging treatments ko,

    Nung single pako, combi ng met, althea, myra E, and iberet folic..

    After December 2011, met, iberet folic and Vit E with Selenium.

    saka kung nagttake kayo ng any whitening products, stop daw muna sabi ni OB ko...

    1. Hello Hazel, advice ko lang syo, wag ka magstop ng treatments mo and regular ka magvisit sa OB. Ganyan din ako dati, "matigas ulo". hehe. patigil tigil sa meds kasi nga wala pako plan mag asawa before. Pero nung narealize ko na pabalik balik yung PCOS pag tumitigil ka ng meds and back to zero ako, nag continue nako magtreat. Especially nung nababasa ko na maraming may PCOS na hirap mag conceive. Actually, hindi naman siya nawawala, yung sakin nga, sa left ovary meron pa, pero dun galing fertile egg ko nung nabuntis ako. Siguro prevention, para hindi lumala. Ask your OB kung pano mo sila itetake ng dika mahihirapan. kasi ako, I was taking them all 1 year before ako kinasal eh. =) balitaan moko ha.

    1. hello sis, yung provera ko kasi unang med ko when I found out na may PCOS ako.. 6 days sakin pina take ng OB ko, tapos after nun, pinahintay sakin within a week yung period ko. And yup, nung under provera treatment ako, nag memetformin nako. kaya lang I stopped taking provera kasi nga diko nahiyang, super nagbloat at pinimples ako. kaya ako pinag shift to Althea and Met Combination.

    3. hello sis Issa, just smile. wag ka malungkot. Ok lang yan. At least nag visit ka na ulit sa ob mo. Syempre, kahit na pare-pareho tayong may PCOS, hindi totally magkakapareho yung combinations ng treatments natin. depende sa kung saan ka mahihiyang. Kung nag gain ka ng weight, mag concentrate ka sa pagbawas ng timbang, kasi it would help you a lot kung maglolose ka ng weight. Ako din dumating sa point na tumaba ako talaga. pumayat nalang ako nung ikakasal na kami. pumayat lang ako sa regular na pagtake ng Met. yung friend ko nga, met lang ang tinetake, nabuntis eh. saka, be positive ha. PRAY. yun yung pinaka important. =)alam ko it's easy to say, but hard to do, pero wag ka masyado maddown. mas nappressure ka, mas mahihirapan ka mag conceive. libangin mo sarili mo with some other things. =)

    1. hello sis April.. =) Wag ka mawalan ng pag asa. kung mababasa mo yung ibang comments ko, alam mo, ako nga ang tagal ko ngttreat. dalaga pako, nagsawa nadin ako magtreat eh. wala akong ginawa buong buhay ko kundi isipin kung mabubuntis bako. =) pero pinaka magandang advice na nakuha ko sa mga friends ko dati, is "to enjoy life" lang. Ngayon n married ka na, try mo na wag ma frustrate everytime na magkakaperiod ka.. nagstart ka palang ng treatment kaya, dapat magig patient ka. iwasan mo mastress kasi di maganda yun sa mga may pcos.. Yung sa pag take mo ng provera, wag ka masyado mainip na magka period ka. dadating yan. kasi un tlga ang use ng provera, para regulate yung mens mo. And, enjoy ka lang with hubby. enjoy lang kayo. sabi nga ng ob ko dati, while you're having sex daw, wag mong/ niyong iisipin na gingawa niyo yun para magka baby.. Kailangan. "LOVE" yung nafifeel nd naiisip niyo.. =) kasi the more na iniisip mo, lalo ka masstress... stay happy. wag masyado nakikinig sa negatives. and always follow your ob's advice. and syempre, always PRAY. Wag ka mahiya na mesage ako ha. I'm just here. =)

    1. Hi Chen,

      There's a reason why your doctor prescribed you with metformin. I suggest you call her just to ask to dozage of your meds. you can buy met over the counter, you just have to know the dosage.

      are you trying to have a baby also? If so, I aslo suggest for you not to take alcoholic drinks. :) Stay healthy. Usually, women who has pcos, and prescribed with Althea and Metformnin, are those TTC.. :)

    1. Hi. Hindi ko makita yung fb request mo eh. Anyways, I did not intentionally take any meds to lose weight. May pcos ka din ba? Yung metformin is the generic name. Ritemed is the brand that my doctor recommended me to take.Kaya siya pinainom sakin is because I have pcos, side effect lang yung nakaka lose siya ng weight. Kasi pag may pcos, d pede maging mabigat, or mataba, because naapektohan yung fertility dahil sa fats. I took metformin para din sa blood sugar. Kasi pag may pcos, prone na maging diabetic. So i tool that for prevention. To lose weight, I controlled my food intake. As per my ob's advice.

    1. Hello Anne, sympotms sakin ng pcos, spotting lang ako every morning for 1month.. severe pimples and weight gain. Advice ko sayo, wag ka matakot magpatingin sa ob. Para mas maintindhan mo kung ano yung ngyyri sa ktwan mo. Lalo ikaw, gusto mo ng magka baby, dapat magstart ka na magpacheck up. :)

  25. Hi Lovely, I'm 30 yrs old from marikina. na inspired din ako sa kwento mo. May PCOS din ako Feb last year ko lang nalaman with my OB. Una uminom ako ng provera nung nagka period ako I was prescribed met and althea for 6mons. yung met 1month ko lang tinake 2x a day metformin glucophage kasi parang nagiging acidic ako siguro di ako hiyang sa brand na yon pero sa althea pills 6mons ko sya ininom yun kasi sabi ng ob ko. natapos yung medication ko aug last year after that medication pinag take ako ovulation pill like clostil iniinom ko sya every 3rd day of my period hanggang ika 7th day. 5 cycles ako nagtake nung ovulation pill na yon until naisip ko na bakit hindi parin kami nakakabuo kahit nagovulate ako nung 1st and 2nd cycle ko sa ovulation pills. Dec 16, 2012 nagka mens ako ulit naisip ko na istop ko muna yung pag inom ng ovulation pill titignan ko lang baka sakaling makabuo kahit walang ovulation pill pero still wala pa rin. ngayon nagkamens na naman ako kaninang umaga lang sobrang frustrated ako. iniisip ko kung may chance pa ba akong maging parent. ngayon ang iniinom ko multivitamins conzace at diamet metformin. ngayon iniisip ko na pumunta sa ob ko para ipaalam sa kanya na bakit di parin ako nabubuntis. tsaka iniisip ko rin na magtake ulit ng clostil. nagtake ka rin ba ng ovulation pill bago ka nabuntis? parang gusto kong itake yung ininom mo iberet folic 500 ba yun? metformin and vit e w/ selenium parehong ritemed yun? I'm glad may makakausap ako about PCOS sana magkababy narin ako soon. Happy New Year!

  27. Hello Jackie, yes you may add me sa fb. Pkilala ka lng. Hehe. Hindi ako ngtake ng ovulation pills. Mag 18 plng ako ngttreat nko. Pero siniryoso ko lng ng 1 yr straight bago kmi ikasal. Sabay sakin metformin, iberet, saka althea.Nagstop ako Nov 2011. Dec kinasal kmi. Ndelay ako ng Jan2012 kso negative. Nakita na may pcos ako sa left ovary. Dun plng ako pinagtake ng vitE with selenium. Napreggy ako ng march. Kaya 6mos ka lang pinagttake kasi tinitignan kung eepekto na sau. Kung nabawasan ba o natunaw ung cysts mo sa gamot. Kasi ganyan din ako dati nung under observation pa. Bumabalik kasi ang pcos eh. Pray ka.lang palagi sis. Sabi ko nga sa blog ko, si baby nanggaling sa ovary ko n may pcos pa. Saka wag mo pressure sarili mo. Kailangan din supportive partner mo. Kung may questions ka or you need support, message mo lang ako sa fb. Ssagot ako pag tulog si baby.

  28. thank u talaga atleast may makakausap akong pinoy about sa ganitong situation. nung natapos yung treatment ko aug 2012 hindi naman tinignan ng ob ko kun nwala pcos. pinag ultrasound nya ako kung mag oovulate ako after ko uminom ng clostil for 5days. 1st cycle ko uminom nag ovulate naman ako tapos contact kami pero di parin nakabuo. Supportive naman si hubby hindi parin sya nawawalan ng pag-asa na makakabuo din kami. Bumili na nga pala ako kanina ng iberet folic, met and vit e w/ selenium. gusto ko kasi itry yung ginawa mo baka magwork sakin at makabuo diba. Nung nalaman ko may PCOS ako nagsearch ako sa internet about nga don sa PCOS tapos may mga nabasa pa ko na bawal yung mga food na mataas sa sugar tulad white bread, white rice, dairy products, canned goods, coffee, alcohol. Sinunod mo ba yung mga bawal kainin o hindi naman? tsaka ginawa nyo rin ba yung naglalagay ka ng unan sa hip mo pag nagcocontact kau? kasi ginagawa namin yun ni hubby kada magcocontact kami para daw hindi lumabas yung semen at mabilis makaswim down yung spem sa pupuntahan. naku halos 1hr ako may unan sa hip ang sakit na nga ng likod ko eh. Nga pala friend request sent. jackie cumayas yung name ko sa fb. yung uy kasi middle name ko yun nung hindi pako married.

  29. Hi! Sobrang inspiring yung story mo. I'm only 26 years old and planning to get married this year. I was diagnosed with PCOS, August 2011. I also took Althea for 6 months, then after that I stopped and took Lady Pill for another 6 months. Last August 2012 nung nagstop ako sa Lady Pill, and nawala yung PCOS ko. From November 2012 up to date, I'm taking Metformin 2xday, and Duphaston 1 tablet for 10 days, thin kasi yung endometrium ko. Honestly, sobrang frustrating talaga! Nakakatakot kasi hindi ako alam kung magkakababy pa ba ko, knowing na in just a few months I'll be getting married na and really hoping to start a family. I also took Clomid last month, 50mg, dp 2-6, but with no luck! How I wish I could have a succesful story as you are! Can I add you sa facebook? Thanks.

  38. hi.. im searching bout pcos and luckily i read this forum/blog. I was diagnosed last month. i was delayed 9 days and expecting for pregnancy and after that i got my period but its abnormal, malakas,,tipong iniihi ko na. I went to doctor with my mom and got pt but resulted negative. We were disappointed. My ob referred me to under go transvi..my impression ..pcos on both ovaries. Iwas frustrated that time,hopeless, worried, stressed,,thinking of all the people why me..but i was wrong,my friend 3yrs married also has. .My ob gave me metformin once a day for the 1st week,then twice for the 2nd week and 3x for the 3rd week until 3mos.,also dufaston, and follart. When i read your story, and other stories here,,im inspired..me pagasa pa pla ako..good things come to those who wait and miracle happens to those who have faith. Thank you for sharing your experiences. Ihope someday i will have my georgia too..

    1. Hello sis... number one rule niya sakin, wag magpataba. Mag diet. Wag masaydo sa sweets especially chocolates. Kasi pag may pcos ka, prone kang maging diabetic. And pwede ka maging obese. Ang diet ko noon, 1 rice lang per meal. Tapos madaming beses ako kumakain pero small amounts lang. Kumbaga, small frequent meals. :) wag din magbubuhat ng mabibigat. Mas ok kung mag gym. Pero tell mo sa instructor na may gnung condition ka para alam kung anong program ibbgay sayo. Basta more of alagaan ang health. Kumain ng fruits and veggies,. WAG MAGPUPUYAT. kasi naapektuhan ng puyat ang hormones natin...
