I've struggled with infertility from PCOS. In 8 years I've had one child and 1 miscarriage and had a welcoming attitude towards another pregnancy. Not trying, but not trying to prevent. My periods and PMDD symptoms had worsened so I finally gave in to my doctor's suggestion to go on birth control. A few months along, my periods are regular, not as heavy, and my PMDD symptoms improved. Last week I got the call that I'm approved for sugery and I'll be having it done sometime this spring. Also last week, I was overworked and some how forgot to take my birth control pill for 3 nights in a row. I find myself for the first time ever hoping I am NOT pregnant! I really need this surgery! On the plus side... I now know for cerain that the PMDD food cravings were not imaginary because I was dismayed at how food cravings had returned... yeah, it was after being off my Yaz for a few days. Doh!

Yes, this is an oportunity, so my choice would be surgery first, then pregnacy later on. This will benefit your health so much!

At 5 months out, I got my IUD taken out last week after several years with cellular changes in the uterus and a thickened endometrium, due to the overweight. I had it removed due to some things that may or may not be the IUD. They recommend you use birth control for about a year after. GUESS who forgot this the same night the IUD was taken out😂

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
