Thanks guys, for sharing such informative data.



PCOS has greatly affected my life ever since my 16th year. Its profound mark has been hard to miss, what with the constant weight struggles and painful periods...among other things.

However, the very worst part of having PCOS is trying, praying, begging to conceive and not being able to. Fortunately, there are many drugs that help women now who wish to have their own child but who are held back through PCOS.

That leads to another battle indeed...being terrified that this pregnancy could end before it has even begun. It is such a stressful pain to endure that only those who have experienced the same can comprehend.

Hearing my children's heartbeat, and seeing the same, for the first time put me at ease right away. I won't say that it completely dispelled my fears, but it went a long way to give some peace of mind.
