    I was diagnosed with this condition yesterday and still feel very emotional and upset to hear this. I am 25 and currently do not have any children. Do you think I should begin planning for a baby or wait? I currently do not have a permanent job but know for sure I do want children and would be heart broken if I could not have any. Thanks in advance for any comments.
    Also should I be following a special diet? I am hoping to make an apppointment with my GP this week to find out more about it.

    I am sorry to hear you are going through a tough time.
    I do think you need to wait for your appointment though as everyone is different.
    Best of luck.

    I hope it helps for you to know that Victoria Beckham was also diagnosed with PCOS years ago and she's managed 4 pregnancies so far.

    This may help. I started it ibitially but as you will see there is loads of info (and differences of opinion :)) on it that may help. Someone on there may be able to help - I know lots of them do have kids, or at least I think so, reading around the boards. Take a look. xx

  6. I can't offer anything other than a big "hug". I am sure that there are folks who have experienced similar issues. Thinking of you. X

    PCOS is no longer a barrier to having children.

    Don't worry!
