Infertility and PCOS

I have polycystic ovary syndrome and it sucks! Between the irregular cycles, inability to lose weight, thinning hair, excessive dandruff, increased facial, and then the infertility as the cherry on top, PCOS is kicking my butt. PCOS is kicking a lot of women's butts. There is no cure for it though there are many things that helps some women deal with some of the symptoms, which, by the way are, are also different for every woman. For example, I technically have a very mild case judging by my hormone levels and relatively mild symptoms, but I deal with infertility due to lack of ovulation. Some woman, on the other hand, have no problem getting pregnant, but experience insulin resistance, severe weight gain, and major body hair growth.

Below are some scripture verses which I have found encouraging throughout the years that we have been trying to conceive and/or adopt. Clinging to God's word and the hope I have in Him has helped me through this time. Feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions, encouragement, or concerns!

                    "'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord,'plans to prosper 
                      you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.'" 
                                                           Jeremiah 29:11
                    "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding."
                                                           Proverbs 3:5

                   "Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage;wait for 
                     the LORD!" 
                                                           Psalm 27:14

                   "Ask and you shall receive great and mighty things you never thought possible." 
                                                           Jeremiah 33:3

                   "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, 
                    with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, 
                    which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds 
                    in Christ Jesus." 
                                                          Philippians 4:6-7

                  "Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart." 
                                                          Psalm 37:4

                  "I sought the Lord and He heard me and freed my from all my fears."
                                                          Psalm 34:4

                 "Thus says the Lord to you, "Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed...
                  because the battle is not yours but God's." 
                                                         2 Chronicles 20:15

                "We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you." 
                                                         2 Chronicles 20:12

                "Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for his steadfast love endures forever." 
                                                         Psalm 118:1

  1. Hi Lorena! Since you commented on my blog, I thought I would visit yours.... so glad I did! In some strange way, it is so encouraging to connect with others who are going through similar struggles as we are. Thank you for sharing your story. I will be praying for you guys, and for your spring IVF. IVF has been SO intense (not to mention expensive), but I am just believing it will be worth it for us... and for you!!! Please keep me posted on your progress. I will try to share all I can about our experience with IVF, so maybe you will know better what to expect! (:
