Hey guys!

I wanted to read and learn about some of your journeys after being sleeved and trying to get pregnant. I also suffer from PCOS and wanting to lose weight and get pregnant was the big reason for my decision to get surgery. I’m currently at that phase after being sleeved when I get depressed thinking I wont ever get pregnant. I wanted to read some of your stories in order to give me hope.

Thank you in advance

Hi! I have PCOS and got the full bypass in July 2016 and hit my gw by July 2016 (318 lbs to 160!). In November 2017, my husband and I started trying and... nothing happened. I finally saw my ob/gyn in the summer of 2018 and she referred me to a reproductive endocrinologist, due to the PCOS. She did a few labs and an ultrasound, decided I was an open and shut case of classic PCOS and prescribed me 10 days of estrogen to give me a period, and 5 days of a medicine called Letrozole to take in the middle of my period to trigger ovulation. I did one course of this medicine and in mid-November I found out we were pregnant! I was also losing hope, being that I’m 34, and after 18 negative pregnancy tests, it was looking gloomy. But number 19 was the lucky one. I would highly recommend seeing a reproductive endocrinologist. They know more about PCOS than the ob/gyn or family doctor. Good luck! Don’t give up! :)

I have PCOS, however I had both of my daughters before getting the sleeve. I had to see a reproductive endocrinologist and was also diagnosed with insulin resistance. I went on metformin and got pregnant within a couple months.
