Pregnant? Waiting to see (Post sleeve with PCOS)

Recommended Posts

Hey there! I have posted on here before about my PCOS and the reason for doing the surgery was to get healthy enough for pregnancy.

Everyone who has PCOS is different and exhibits different symptoms. I personally would have a cycle sometimes several times a month. I've never been one to "miss" my period. I would get heavy multiple periods a month. Over the last few months it's began to regulate and span about 29-31 days. Now I am 8 days late.

I've taken several pregnancy tests that all came up negative. Over the weekend I went into the doctor and asked for a blood test to be sure. They told me it would be a few days before I would get the results.

Since it's super common for women with PCOS to not get their period for long spans of time, I keep being told "It's just your PCOS". Since this hasn't been my experience, I'm just super confused. I ALWAYS get my period.

Anyone else with a similar situation? I'm going crazy waiting to find out.I'm exhausted and weak so I asked them to check my Iron levels at the same time too to see if that could be causing those symptoms. Probably not pregnant and just wishful thinking!

Hope they figure it out. You need to check all your Vitamin levels. And thyroid too, in addition to your Iron. ((hugs))

Not pregnant, HCG level was .6 but have low Iron at a 4. Still requesting a full workup to see if everything else is ok. Thank you ladies for your support!!! Iron supplements for now!

Wow! You need a referral to a hematologist. A 4 means you need an infusion hon--asap. :(

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through
