My husband and I are trying to get pregnant. We haven't been charting or temp taking or anything like that. Just hoping and praying for the best. It has been 9 months of this since being off the pill. This is just to fill you in on the background of the situation.
I went to the doctor maybe a month ago and had my hormone levels checked. The results came back a couple of weeks ago and the doctor called me in to give me the results. She says my testosterone levels are really high for a woman and that I have several other symptoms of PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome). She says this means that getting pregnant will be hard and my internet research on PCOS has confirmed this may be the case.
She said in a few months we will talk about the option of Metformin, a drug that has something to do with insulin regulation and has been shown to regulate PCOS in a way that helps women get pregnant. Other than that I know nothing, but I'm not convinced. I don't think that I am willing to take drugs or any fertility treatments. This isn't to knock those who do, I just feel like maybe God wants to bless me with a family in a different way.
My youngest sister was recently adopted by my parents from China, so this is something close to my heart. My husband is very up for the option of adoption. We are going to an adoption meeting next month. Are we giving up on trying to soon?
Should I wait and see if God wants me to conceive naturally, or do I take the thought of my having PCOS as a indication that God has other plans?
