Trying to conceive a child ttc – health (88) – nigeria hormonal imbalance symptoms in females

@ebony13, i asked my Dr that question and he told me dat even tho women with pcos have a slightly higher risk of miscarriage than women who dont have pcos, the low progesterone rate is abt the same for all women. I was on metformin while pregnant and was asked to be on it until 14 weeks, the reason according to my Dr is dat metformin brngs dat slightly higher risk of miscarriage down to the same as somone without pcos. Progesterone is actually more effective before you get pregnant, its better to start using it right after ovulation and then continue using it even if you get pregnant. I was already pregnant in nigeria but i was told i had low progesterone wen i came to america at about 6weeks and my Dr told me its a little late but we’ll try to save the pregnancy anyway cos at 6weeks i should have been on progesterone for abt 8 weeks already since ovulation but i had no idea i had low progesterone.


With my first miscarriage i was in Nigeria the whole time so thrs no explanation as to wat might have happened to that pregnancy but i strongly believe it was low progesterone as well.

I started using metformin May 2011 and i was taking it once a day until September and started taking it 2wice a day, i got pregnant in October so i believe taking it once a day didnt hve much effect on me. Then i went up to 3 times a day in January and i got pregnant in Feb. I wasnt using OPK’s so i might have ovulated other months and didnt knw i did, am only sure of ovulating Oct and Feb cos i got pregnant.

Dnt wry ebony13, u’l b fine. Here is wat i suggest, make sure u have low progesterone cos not all women wit pcos have low progesterone, and if you dont then you dont have to wry abt dat. But if u do, then you ask for progesterone supplements. Also take to your Dr about putting you on Metformin.

Also my Dr prefers me to use progesterone suppositories(dats d ones u insert thru d vagina) instead of the once u take orally. He sed it gets into d blood faster dan if ur body had to digest the drug first. Actually he sed the fastest one is the progesterone injection cos it goes directly into the blood but he didnt put me on dat cos thrs no way i wuld hve been able to get shots 3 times a day evry single day.

Hello everyone, for those who have been officially diagnosed to be having PCOS, God is the head of all things and He is above it. I read almost all the pages of TTC pages and initiade (i dont know if i got the speelings right sef), one of the early posters said she had pcos and in her post she said she only used multivitamins and above it she trusted God and in the end she had twins. Lets all learn to even appreciate God the more even as we visit our doctors and try our best, while waiting for your babies, wait on God the more, trust Him the more.

When the news of Dana air plane crash got to me yesterday, i cried, some are no more, you and i are not better than them and that we are still alive means that your hope is not lost. God will meet all our needs through Christ Jesus. Exodus 23:26, You will not cast your young ones, and that non (you and me) will be barren in the land.

Let me briefly share this with you guys the secrets of answered prayers, worship God even in that situation cos He said in everything give thanks, appropriate the Word of God in the request, like say God you said non shall be barren, lord you said be fruitful and multiply, have the right motive, ask in faith, forgive those who offend you, when an opportunity comes for you to tell someone about Jesus please do.
