    hi there! I have PCOS(DX oct 2007). I was on clomid for 5 months, had two early losses and then decided to lose some weight. which brought me here to the HCG diet. I've lost 36 lbs and took clomid 100mg this cycle, was currently on P2 at the time and just got a + pregnancy test yesterday(so I'm obviously off the drops now). So yes it's possible! I am hoping to get a beta tomorrow to confirm. Hoping this is a sticky bean.

    Can I ask you guys a personal question? How do you know you have PCOS? I have had several people, Dr's, tech's, nurses, tell me I probably have PCOS. But they just tell me that, no one has ever tested me or how would they know?

    Mostly Dr.s give you a DX on your symptoms. There are blood tests that can check for certain things and an U/S to determine if you have polycystic ovaries. I do not have polycystic ovaries but have many of the other symptoms. You can't jsut have one symptom and be DX. It would be multiple.

    from Web MD:
    Few or no menstrual periods . This can range from less than nine menstrual cycles in a year (more than 35 days between cycles) to no menstrual periods.2 Some women with PCOS have regular periods but are not ovulating every month. This means that their ovaries are not releasing an egg each month.
    Heavy, irregular vaginal bleeding. About 30% of women with PCOS have this symptom.3
    Hair loss from the scalp and hair growth (hirsutism) on the face, chest, back, stomach, thumbs, or toes. About 70% of women in the United States with PCOS complain of these hair problems caused by high androgen levels.4
    Acne and oily skin, caused by high androgen levels.
    Depression or mood swings.
    Living with PCOS symptoms can affect your sense of well-being, sexual satisfaction, and overall quality of life. This too can lead to depression.5 For more information, see the topic Depression or Depression in Children and Teens.

    Gradual symptoms
    PCOS symptoms that may develop gradually include:

    Weight gain or upper body obesity (more around the abdomen than the hips). This is linked to high androgen levels.4
    Male-pattern baldness or thinning hair (alopecia). This is linked to high androgen levels.
    Repeat miscarriages. The cause for this is not known. These miscarriages may be linked to high insulin levels, delayed ovulation, or other problems such as the quality of the egg or how the egg attaches to the uterus.
    Inability to become pregnant (infertility). This is because the ovaries are not releasing an egg (not ovulating).
    Symptoms of too much insulin (hyperinsulinemia) and insulin resistance, which can include upper body weight gain and skin changes, such as skin tags or dark, velvety skin patches under the arm, on the neck, or in the groin and genital area.
    Breathing problems while sleeping (obstructive sleep apnea). This is linked to both obesity and insulin resistance.2
    High blood pressure may be more common in women who have PCOS, especially if they are very overweight. Your doctor will check your blood pressure.

    The most common reasons that first bring women with PCOS to a doctor include:

    Menstrual problems.
    Male-type hair growth (hirsutism) on the face and body.
    Infertility.
    Weight gain or upper body obesity.

    I went to an endocrinologist who tested my hormone levels with a blood test. My levels were all normal with the exception of vitamin d which I was deficient . My doc said I still have PCOS since I have the clinically recognized signs like overweight, facial hair in abnormal areas, irregular periods ect. I suggest you make an appt with an endocrinologist who will order tests to check your hormone levels.

    Thanks Emmy and Linga I have several of those but I think the hormone test is a good idea. That's what I was looking for, is there was some sort of test. I do fit the other categories. I don't like the thought of ticking boxes and saying I fit into this category. Maybe I do but...... thanks guys hopefully with this hcg I can get out of the "your overweight category"!

    Having unprotected sex alone will increase your chances but the drops alone won't. Yes it's true that some fertility treatments use HCG, but the drops are homeopathic so I don't think they will increase your chances. If you don't want to get pregnant, I would suggest using some form of protection. Birth control pills are fine on this diet.

    I had a vaginal ultrasound done, on top of having hormonal testing and having the symptoms. I just recently got off Metformin so I could do HCG.
