Newly Diagnosed

A few weeks ago I was diagnosed with PCOS.
I will never have children because of this.
I don't know how to break it to my boyfriend.
My boyfriend is so scared of losing me
and so I don't want to take that risk either.
We have already planned alot of stuff for our future
But I feel that this is a step in a negative direction.

After November I stopped having my period.
In late December/Early January I had E.Coli
and I thought this was just that. So I didn't tell anyone.

But months went and I didnt have my period, and finally,
In June, I went to the Gynecologist, where they ran tests.

It came back and The doctor called while we were on vacation.
I had PCOS.
and even worse, It made me infertile.

I am 16 years old and i hope this is a temporary problem, since I wasn't really told much.

Pregnacy can happen in women with Pcos. It is a lot of medication and dedication but I know women who have finally concieved even though they have Pcos. There are many support groups out there, just like this one, and lots of information out there. Best thing to do is just educate yourself and never give up hope.

PCOS doesn't mean that you can't have kids, it just makes it harder. Research it as much as you can, once you understand PCOS you will know better how to handle it. Don't give up though.

I have PCOS but it doesnt mean you cant have children what my doctor said to me was it can be either difficult or easy to get pregnant at first its a shock but once you have information about it its easier to live with. I dont know what stage of it you have but dont lose hope.. if and when you want a child try but dont think about it alot.. There are also medications you can take to either help you lose weight which is a god send with this condition as you put weight on for no reason! Dont lose faith because you never know what the future holds Jx
