Women with PCOS are generally advised to avoid using “early result” pregnancy tests — you know, the ones that claim on the front of the box that they can detect pregnancy 6 days before your missed. Knowing the early warning signs of being pregnant will help you know if you are or not. If you have a positive pregnancy test and severe abdominal or pelvic pain, especially if accompanied by nausea or vomiting, dizziness or fainting, contact your doctor immediately and/or go to the emergency room.

Even in women who have PCOS, pregnancy tests should be taken if a woman suspects she may be pregnant. Early pregnancy symptoms in women with PCOS are similar to those of women without PCOS. Women with PCOS are usually advised not to take pregnancy tests before a missed period and to avoid using “early result” pregnancy tests because false negatives are more likely to occur with. Getting pregnant with PCOS involves some of the same steps that women without PCOS should take for a healthy pregnancy.

For pregnant women, PCOS brings an increased risk of complications.

This includes preeclampsia, a dangerous condition for. Basal Body Temperature. Take your temperature first thing every morning, before you even get out of bed. After several months of charting, you may notice subtle changes in your body temperature over the course of your cycle that may be helpful in predicting ovulation.

Detecting Ovulation With. One thing you can do is take an at-home pregnancy test to find out if you’re expecting, and for the most part, you can expect to see an accurate result. But in rare instances, a woman with PCOS.

Missing a Period. The classic first symptom of pregnancy missing a period may be hard to spot if you have PCOS. A woman with PCOS has higher-than-normal levels of male hormones, called androgens, such as testosterone.

This hormonal imbalance leads to symptoms such as obesity, acne and excess hair growth.

  • Hi I have pcos and I find it so hard to talk about it. I just scanned that people around me well look at me different, it’s just hard dealing with everything I’m going through and also dealing with the people mocking me about the amount of weight I’m caning

  • Am trying for 1 yr to get pregnant i have 1 child but after 16 yrs,am ready for another baby. I decided to go to the doc and found out i have mild pcos. Nw that explains y i have facial hair and acne. Am nw having to understand my body and deal with trying to get pregnant with doc help. Not to mention losing weight which i didn’t realize was because of pcos. Wish me luck. U conquered it and i am confident i can.

  • I recently got “diagnosed” with this too. I say “diagnosed” because nobody sat me down and talked to me or explained anything. They just called me on the phone and skipped right to the “here take this medication” part which is incredibly frustrating and confusing. Like, can you just tell me I have it or not???

  • Is it normal to have irregular periods after having baby? I mean before i got pregnant my period was really irregular, and after my delivery my period get back to normal like im having it monthly but this month i havent seen my period.

Me and my husband are patient. But my pcos depresses me all the time. I am upset and sick of life TBH. Makes me feel less of woman. Tried loosing weight which I did. I lost 22kg. It didn’t change anything. It made me more depressed. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2015 when I was 21. So I have that to deal with too. Life ey. I hope God blesses me with a child soon. Amen, I have lost hope, but I still try to believe.

I have now been really trying for a month now and I’m testing tomorrow. Hopefully I get my BFP but I’m not too hopeful. I have also been craving oranges like crazy which I never do. I’m not a hige fan of oranges. I havent really noticed a lot of symptoms other than fatigue, bloating, nausea. I feel like this all the time so I dont know anymore. I was supposed to get my period today but as I said before I have PCOS so that doesnt really mean much.

  • Try the tried and true method of the balloons in the gift gag. Full of blue and pink balloons with a test tied to to the bottom. Or try the test in baby bottle trick hidden as he gets something when you ask. But snap a photo on your phone as a backup proof as digital screens can fade.

  • You sound like trying to get pregnant for 8 months is a long time to get pregnant. Where women like me who have been trying for another baby for 4 years now with no luck. And we are probably going to have to do ivf next year just to get pregnant. But congratulations anyways

  • I have PCOS and i follow the Keto diet (low-carb diet). I know it works because before I have to take the daily pill to have period or else I don’t know when it will come, it’s so irregular. After 2 and a half months of not getting my period, I decided to do Keto again (I’ve done it before but I gave up) and just after 1-2 weeks of doing it, I have my period again. Now I’m following a low-carb diet, I cut out all sugar and carb; I still eat fruits. I think it’s important not to stress out mis-eating something too much, it’s okay to treat yourself something sweet or have carbs once in a while ( in the weekend) ’cause I want to commit to this for a long time. I have never felt this good for such a long time, cutting out sugar is the best decision in my life.

  • I have regular periods and have been diagnosed with PCOS today. It’s crazy how different pcos is to everyone. I have the anxiety depression weight gain, muscle gain, hair loss, body acne

  • I started my cycle in 5th grade and it was very irregular and painful. The only thing that I was prescribed is birth control and it served no justice. I experienced my cycle for two months straight before my doctor told me to stop taking it. Now I am 24 and I have the worst pains. My doctor believes I have PCOS and I am scheduled to obtain an ultrasound. They also believe I have endometriosis. I have severe pains and I need help immediately.

  • I’m finally going to see a gynecologist after 1.5 yrs of having no period. �� Honestly, I don’t miss having a period. But my acne is BAD!

  • i have PCOS but i’m having non-stop bleeding instead of no periods #facepalm i’m always waiting on when i’m going to stop bleeding. i’m so tired of it.

  • i was cured of HERPES VIRUS by a great herbal doctor called DR Lucky with the use of different combination of Africa herbs. it is still like a dream to me. There is no word suitable enough to qualify your significant in my life dear doctor. you too can contact him for any kind of cure on his Email �� ([email protected]) or Whatsapp (+2348154637647

  • I was diagnosed that I have PCOS since I was 13, kept drinking those birth control pill ever since. But I stopped taking them 1.5 years ago. I have gained almost 20kilos.

    This morning I went to the doctor again to have a full check up as a grownup, I was so scared. But I’m glad that I found out that I’m not along. Be strong ladies ������

  • I m irregular periods for 40 days but these month I have not got my periods these month 40 days over but 6 days late but negative result y?????mam

  • Having pcos is extremely hard as a female,especially teenagers. I got my first period when i was 10 and until 11,my cycles were very irregular(could be once per 2 weeks or 2 months) and i thought it was normal. In 6th grade/primary 6,i was preparimg for my end of year leaving examination to go to secondary school/high school(?) and was incredibly stressed. My period didnt come for 11 month straight and my mom knew something was up. Went to the clinic,got a hormonal pill prescripton,after one cycle went back to normal which my period didnt come for another 4 months. Went back for another prescription,didnt work so i went back for a 3rd time when i was 13. This time they sent me to the hospital to get it checked out. At that time,i gained a significantly amount of weight,10-11kg to be exact. They did many blood tests,many ultrasounds,ruled out the possibility of thyroid conditions,and my testosterone levels were normal,they didnt find anything wrong so they just gave me hormonal pills and sent me home. Again,it didnt work so i went back to the hospital where they did another ultrasound where they officially diagnosed me with pcos. It was hard,really hard. I cant enjoy what other teenagers enjoy,like going out for pizza and chicken. I could eat those things,but i would feel guilty. The doctor told me i had to lose all the weight i gained,but i was stress eating at that time,so i have no idea how to lose it. Every biology class,every period talk between friends and sexual education were all so foriegn to me,i should be thinking tat that could happen to me,but im thinking,oh,that CANT happen to me,right? Whenever i tell my friends i need to eat pills to get my period,they look at me weirdly,like im some alien. Recently,i found out that my grandma has cervical cancer,which 3 of my grandaunts have too. I feel worried about my condition,but i feel like im overly worried about being next in linr for cancer/not being able to enjoy my teen years. Im 14 now,still havent lost the weight but sustained it. Nothing has changed. I cant seem to find anyone that i know and talk about pcos as none of my close friends or relatives have it. Coming to the comments,reading each other’s stories,warmed my heart and i know thst im not alone

  • They told me i can never have kids because of that hormone balance i gave up i did everything they asked me nothing,age 38 i got pregnant i have a daughter and a son

  • 1:14 of the way thru… And already, sis I feel you… And thank u so freaking much for making this video �� I’ve had pcos since 6th grade…
