Wanted to conceive a child
Hi there! I'm Julienne and I have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. One of my friends was informed by her gynecologist that she no longer can conceive because of PCOS (which I also have). I'm afraid my partner will leave me because I won't be able to conceive. Any treatment for this? Please, I need help! I only experience menstruation once a year. Than you so much!

Great question....I want to guide you to this particular link. You will find a great response to one other mum here in the forums who had a similar question about irregular menstruation.
Please scan through it and let us know if you have any further questions.
Have you seen a Dr for your irregular periods? I'm curious to what sort of treatment you have considered for your irregular cycle.
Looking forward to hearing back from you.

I'm so sorry to read about your concerns. Whilst PCOS does affect your fertility levels please take heart that most women with PCOS who have treatment, or have their condition carefully managed, are able to successfully conceive. Have you talked to your partner about having PCOS? How is your doctor helping to support you with this and manage your condition?
The Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Association of Australia can help to support you further with this; please have a look at their website here.
Women who have PCOS have cysts in their ovaries and too much of the hormone androgen. This means they have problems ovulating or may not ovulate at all. Women have a higher chance of ovulation (with PCOS) if they are able to control your weight and also if you have just come off the pill (i.e. conceiving in the first cycle after coming off the pill). You will need help from your doctor or ideally a referral to a fertility specialist for help with what treatment option is best for you.
Many, many women with PCOS go on to successfully conceive.
Thinking of you,
