One of my friends just got diagnosed with this and she claims she can't ever have kids. Can you tell me what exactly it is?

Hi and Welcome to the board! I don't have experience with PCOS but did want to drop by and share some information from iVillage Health concerning this condition with you. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

Other members who have this condition and live with it daily will be by at some point to offer you their personal experiences. We do hope you (and your friend) will stop back by and let us know how things are going.

Hi there! So sorry about the very late reply. I have been having problem signing in and I have also been sick, so I am not here as much as I usually am. Who ever your friend is talking to is wrong. Especially these days, most of us will be able to get pregnant. The important thing to do is to treat the PCOS through diet and possibly a med called metformin. There is hope. I would be happy to help your friend in any way that I can. Take care, Laura
