Step 7 Results

3 miles into my 6 mile run on the treadmill, my cell phone rang.  it was casey, my nurse.  she told me that my hormone levels were normal and that my uterus looked good, but those 2 extra follicles could indicate PCOS.  i shouldn't be surprised, since i've suspected that myself (always maintaining a safe distance into denial, though).  now my mantra is "i'm not freaking out. i'm not freaking out."  it's always a blow to hear that there could be something wrong with you, whether it's minor or life-threatening.  as i sat down on the treadmill to cry after i got off the phone (my 1st good cry in about a year-yay me!) my thoughts were racing.  my good ol' use-comedy-to-deflect-pain/fear defense mechanism kicked in.  mid-sob i thought of the endorphins that should be surging through my body at that time and my favorite movie quote of all time popped into my head:

"exercise gives you endorphins. endorphins make you happy. happy people just don't shoot their husbands, they just don't."

my hysterical crying quickly turned to hysterical laughing.  thank you elle woods!  i really needed that.

Hey- thanks for stopping by. It looks like you have had a long journey. I have PCOS, don't worry, they can work around it! Feel free to email me if you have any questions.

I totally freaked when I found out I had PCOS. I got so upset and googled like crazy. 6 months later, I got pregnant naturally 2 weeks into my first IVF cycle.

Having a diagnosis really helps them to gear your treatment. I do not have insulin resistance but started taking large doses of Vitamin D form someone's recommendation. I really think that helped a lot. Have you ever had your vitamin D levels tested? Where do you live? I live in Upstate Ny where winter=cloudiness. Good luck!

I also have PCOS and it stinks, but it is completely and totally manageable and there are so many things they can do to help us conceive! In fact, now that they know what's wrong, that will help them get you that much closer to getting pg! Hang in there!

Someone else commented on my blog about a link between vitamin D deficiency and PCOS. I did a little research myself and it seemed to be a definite possibility. Check it out!

I hope you don't have PCOS but at least it would give you some type of answer! Love that movie! Good for you for holding your emotions better than I do.
