I planned on waiting 1 year and it appears that taking BC for that year was a good decision on my part. Literally after I stopped taking it I got pregnant. I wasnt thrilled about taking it but my period got crazy so I used it to regulate. If you plan on waiting a year' date=' use something.Condoms are the easiest![/quote']

I was banded and on my one year anniversary I found out I was pregnant! It's helped my PCOS a LOT!!! (I had PCOS so bad that after 4 miscarriages and year and a half with no cycle, and rounds and rounds of fertility meds, 3 fertility doctors told me to look into adoption because having a child was not possible. And we got pregnant with no fertility drugs!)

After having my son I got refilled and finally lost all my baby weight (to the frickin pound!) and found out voila! pregnant again! Now with a girl <3

Getting banded was the best choice I ever made. It gave me my two angels!

Reading this gave me hope... I am 38 banded 3/26/12 down 25lbs... I didn't get the surgery to help with my PCOS I got it to get healthy and to move on with the thought of never having baby.... but now I am thinking I should give it another shot once I loose more....Thanks ladies!

You know, as long as your healthy there is no reason NOT to get pregnant. I lost all hope even with the band. But after this, I plan on having one more and will be at least 38. Im 36 with this one anyways. My OB is very pleased with me and the development of my son that I have had no worries. Just know, after 35 they automatically put you in a high risk category simply because of age. My Dr never even questioned or even mentions my band. The only precaution I am taking is at delivery I asked to be prescribed anti nausea medication in my IV so I dont vomit and dislodge my band.

Keep your head up and work on getting healthy for you before anything else. Several of us are here if you ever need anything!

Wow I love this thread. It's so hopeful

My periods were NEVER normal. They either never came or were very light (usually they never came)

My OBGYN said it's not PCOS and things will get better when I shake off some pounds. I REALLY want to have kids!!!

Thanks everyone for the insight

I got pregnant one month after being banded, and this was after 9 years of infertility. I had a miscarriage; but within 5 months, I was back and preggo again!!! I would definitely say use an alternative birth control method if you're not looking to get pregnant.

I was banded in June 2010, got married to my best friend of 13 years this past March and pregnant by May! We weren't trying, but weren't preventing it either. But the sooner the better! I'm already 33 and didn't want to push it out too far. Thanks to 70 pound weight loss, my doc says I'm not high risk what-so-ever! So, after two cycles BAM! Expecting. Gotta love how the band resolves old health issues!

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights
