PCOS
Hi Everyone. Hope you all are doing great. This post is about a friend of mine. She has recently been diagnosed with PCOS. She's been married for two years now. She had been trying to get pregnant ever since. When she was diagnosed, her doctor told her that her chances of getting pregnant were way too low now. This broke her. She has been so sad and depressed lately. We are thinking to consider IVF for her now. Apparently, IVF works for the people with PCOS. I really hope it works too. I might take her to the same clinic that I went to for my surrogacy. It would be really nice if you people share your successful IVF stories too. Thank you.

Hi Blake! How are you doing dear? Well, yes! I think she is heading toward a right path. My story is also same...But, I've been TTC for two years. But, I've opted for an IVF upcoming June at a human repro center in Ukraine. So, yes! As I've decided it for myself! Than yes! I think I would recommend it for her! I think she can get it done through it! It's a wonderful procedure to go with...So, yes! Wish her all the best! I've wasted my 5 years fighting this PCOS...But, now my Obstetrician recommended for an IVF. so, yes! I am going for it! He still thinks that I can conceive of it...Anyway! Wish her all the best. xx

Hey, Rachel. Thank you so much for your support and these kind words. She is feeling better now. Actually, she is feeling good about the whole IVF process. I made her believe it is going to work for her. Even the doctor said her chances are really good. I'll keep you updated on her procedure here. Your prayers will be appreciated.

Hi there! I've heard good things about this treatment. I remember from the time of my surrogacy, my clinic offered it as well. I think she should go for it. Some clinics offer unlimited tries till success too. I think that'll definitely help considering the amount you pay for this. I wish her all the best. Kids are a blessing everyone should have. Good luck!

Hey there! I have heard of this treatment too. I came to know about it when I had my process. I went through surrogacy. I was unable to conceive naturally. So surrogacy seemed to be the best option for me. I think everyone having this problem should try surrogacy. It has very high success rates. Good luck to her too.

Hey. Hope you are doing fine. I am sorry for your friend. IVF is a good procedure but it is a bit risky. I would suggest you surrogacy. Surrogacy is a good procedure, as your friend is diagnosed with PCOS so surrogacy is best for her. It is a safe procedure, she will have a genetic baby through surrogacy. My friend was diagnosed with PCOS so her doctor suggested he that IVF would be risky. So she chose surrogacy. I hope she would choose it.

Well, I hope that it works for her too. The chances are really less you see. I think chances are always so much less. We could never be 100% sure. I guess it should be alright for her. Just take her. I wish you share her success story with us soon.

Hey, I hope you and your friend are doing well. It is a good decision that she has decided to opt for IVF. IVF has a 60% chance of success. However, the success rate differs from people to people as the disorders are different. For IVF it is very true that for people suffering from PCOS the chances of successes are high. IVF is very unpredictable so the clinics cant give you the guarantee but they can try their level best. As far as I remember you and I visited the same clinic for surrogacy during my procedure I did talk to a lot of IVF patients. I distinctly remember talking to one of them who told me it was her second IVF cycle. She got her 1st cycle done from another clinic. The doctor was not experienced and she said the cycle failed but while they did her retrieval they even caused scars on her ovaries. So she said it is, therefore, extremely important to visit an experienced doctor. At this clinic, she said the doctors did her retrieval extremely carefully and with care. She later did become pregnant. Therefore, your clinic choice for the treatment is good. Best of luck!

Hey there! I hope you are doing fine. I am so sorry to hear about friend infertility. I had diagnosed with PCOS after one year of marriage. I had TTC four times had no luck. I wasn't able to conceive even a once. Then I opted IVF. But unfortunately, I had failed in the first cycle of IVF. Then surrogacy was the last option for me. I had heard a lot of about surrogacy success. Then I opted and went to Ukraine for my surrogacy. Here I found a reputable clinic where I had provided with great facilities. They took great care of surrogate too. Finally, I had blessed with a baby girl through surrogacy. I would suggest your friend surrogacy because of hundred percent rate. Best wishes to her. Stay blessed

I am sorry to know about your friend. I know how painful it is to manage all that pressure. I hope she will have her own babies soon. IVF is a great procedure to go with. A close friend of mine had her IVF from Ukraine. She was so much satisfied and happy after that. I wish luck to your friend. Baby dust on her.

Hello there! How are you? Hope you are good. I'm fine too. You are such a good friend. Friends like you need an award. People don't care about others so much these days. Hats off. I think IVF is the best procedure for PCOS. I have been in this infertility thing for a while. I know some things feom experience. My experience with friends having pcos shows that ivf proves most effective. I think your friend should try it. May she succeed. Waiting to hear her BFP news. Keeping fingers crossed.

PCOS, ahh. I hate it so much. Daily, I came across almost one or two women talking about their struggles with it. I know how much hard it must be for her. But I am glad that she has a friend like you. A friend who is there to help her through all this. IVF is an amazing option to go with. I have no personal experience with IVF. But a close friend of mine had. She shared each and every detail of her journey with me. She was very much satisfied with the services of the clinic she visited. And that led to my surrogacy through the same clinic after I was diagnosed with unexplained infertility. I hope it will go amazingly for her. Stay by her side. She really needs the support of her loved ones. Lots of living and wishes to her.

I am so happy that the clinic I chose for my IVF is coming to the UK. I would recommend you all to avail this great opportunity of meeting The head of the English department just in case if you have any queries. I am really excited. August is not too far. Hope this event will go great in London. That is the great initiative by the management of Biotexcom. More and more people will benefit from this. Get yourself registered ASAP. I hope everyone's dreams come true. Good luck.

Hi Blake, hope you are doing well. I am so happy to see your concern for your friend. She is very lucky to have a sincere friend like you. Well I hope IVF works for her. Consult a good reliable clinic and hopefully you ll find the approriate treatment. Just remember one thing that it might take time so dont rush. I have been TTC for 10 years. Though I am an unlucky case but there are many who have to wait a bit. All it take is a reliable clinic and luck. I myself have been worried lately about finding a good clinic. Finally I have registered for an event in London UK on 18 and 19 august. A very reliable and prestigious clinic named Biotexcom is visiting there alonwith there head of English Department Anastasia. They will give a chance to sign contract along with sharing information about treatments. I am so looking forward to attend this opportunity.The clinic has very rich background and I has very positive vibes about this event.

Hi Blakegreen, hope you are fine. I am sorry to hear about your friends' issue. You should start her treatment asap. I was diaganosed with PCOS too. After laparoscopy doctos find out that it is endometriosis. They recommended me IVF. I did tried IVF twice but it ended in failure. So does my marriage. My husband divorced me afterwards because he wanted to have kids. I am remarried now and this time I have chosen surrogacy as my rescue. I heard that a clinic named Biotexcom is coming to visit London Uk on 18 and 19 august. They will discuss their fertility treatrments and will give a chance to sign treatment contract. Their team alonwith head of english department, Anastasia, will be there to guide particiapnts. There are limited seats for this event so I have registered myself already. I really wish that this clinic helps me to have a child.

Hello there, I'm fine, what about you. I feel so sad for your friend. PCOS is the major reason for infertility. It's very tough to cope up. I can understand her situation. My cousin also facing PCOS from her younger age. She is infertile too. She is a very strong lady. She never gives up. She went to Biotexcom for her infertility treatment. Biotexcom is very popular clinic among fertility treatments. Now she has a cute baby girl through surrogacy. I think surrogacy is the best option for your friend. No doubt, IVF is a good treatment but surrogacy is safer than IVF. I also have good news for your friend. Biotexcom team coming in London at 18&19 Aug. You can take an appointment for your friend from this email surrogacy@biotexcom.com.

Hi, honey. I hope you're okay. Thank you for sharing the experience of your friend. PCOS is a sad issue. It's such a difficult thing to deal with. Your chances of getting pregnant become dramatically less. It's really important to spread awareness about it. I'm glad you're there for her. She needs the support. It's a good idea to opt for assisted conception. I can suggest you a good fertility clinic. I went there for my own troubles. They give you dates for your checkup. Based on that, they suggest the treatment. IVF is definitely the best way to go for her.

This is awful news. I can't believe your friend had to go through this. The periods during PCOS are a mess. I suffer from the same issue. I think you're making the right decision. IVF is the perfect solution. It will help your friend greatly. Good luck to her. Don't lose hope, it'll happen! PCOS is a terrible issue. It's so important to raise awareness about it. I have an older sister who suffers from PCOS. She used to be in so much pain. I witnessed her troubles first hand. I'd never want anyone going through it. She could've had it a lot easier had she known what to do. I had great luck with it. It's totally safe, too. Good luck to her! I hope things work out.

I can understand the situation. I, myself suffer from PCOS. It's a very serious problem. I made the mistake of neglecting it, earlier. After my initial frustration with pregnancy, I consulted my doctor. He explained the situation to me. We searched for solutions and decided to opt for IVF. It worked out, really well for us. I got pregnant on the second cycle. I have a beautiful baby daughter now.

Hello, honey. I hope you're doing good. This a lovely post! I'm so glad she has you! Everyone deserves friends like you! Keep up the good work. The poor thing is going through a lot. You being there, is definitely going to help. I'd love to help out! I had a good experience with IVF, actually. We underwent the procedure without actually knowing if it would be successful. It was a risk for us because these procedures are quite expensive. We found a good affordable deal, but we knew our chances were slim. Luckily it all worked out! I hope she experiences something similar! Good luck to her!
