Help please....

My name is Kimberly, and I'm new here. I really need help from some people who understand what I'm going through. My husband and I have been married for 3 years and we misscarried about 2 years ago. We've been TTC for about a year now, and no luck at all. I don't even know if I ovulate. My cycle is so messed up and I just found out that I have PCOS. I am just so unsure of what to do, I want a baby so badly, and I can't hardly think of anything else at this point. I mean, that is probably my biggest problem. I just don't know what to do.... and I am really searching for people to talk to and turn to that understand what I'm going through.

Please help, and thank you in advance!

Hi Kimberly. I'm here after a few losses and I was just diagnosed with PCOS as well. To find out if you are ovulating a Dr can do bloodtests and ultrasounds. For youself, basal body charting can tell you when/if you are Ovulating. There is free easy to use software for that at I would start with that. They also have a free charting course so you can learn how to do it. If you haven't already I would see about getting an infertility workup by a dr since you have been ttc for a year you should be able to get that or at least a referral to a reproductive endocrinologist or an

Thank you so much, and I hope that everything works out for you both as well! I hate to ask, but I don't know what all the little abbreviations mean. I'm not quite sure what a BFP is....... I'm new at all this.

Again, thank you so much and I hope to continue talking with you all!
