Feeling depressed because you have PCOS? Here are some reasons why having PCOS isn’t all that bad…

1. PCOS also stands for Pretty Clever Outstanding Stephanie (please note: this only applies if your name is actually Stephanie or begins with an ’s’).

2. If you have PCOS excessive facial hair, you can participate in Movember this month! Raise money for a good cause while you grow your PCOS mustache during the month of November! (Note: If you don’t have a mustache, you can grow your leg hair and show it off to the fertility doctor during your tansvaginal ultrasounds).

3. You might not have ovulated since 2004, but when you do, it is a cause for celebration! Send out ’save the date’ cards and invite everyone to your Ovulation Party!

4. You haven’t needed to purchase tampons or pads in years! Think of all the money you saved. (Note: Disregard the excessive money you also spent on failed fertility treatments).

5. PCOS does not mean you will never have children. Women with PCOS can and do get pregnant, and rumor has it, their babies are even cuter.

    Ahhhhh, good ol’ PCOS! I’ve been saddled with thee since age 14 :/ Too bad I don’t have an S name….

    As for #5: I totally think PCOS babies are especially cute, but I’m biased ;)And women with PCOS DO have babies all the time–some even without much help. Darn it-I wasn’t one of those women though. First baby was an injectable and IUI baby, the one I’m pregnant with now was a lone, left over frozen embryo from my fresh IVF cycle 6 months ago. But hey–who the heck cares *how* you get there, as long as you get there. And chances are very much in your favor that you will get there! PCOS sucks, but often you can find a way around it!

    This is great! I have PCOS and my name starts with S! lol I’m definitely going to buy your book this week…I just wish I could get a hard copy (I’m a bookworm) as I don’t own any kind of e-reader so it’ll have to be on my PC. :)I just read the preview of your book though and my mom is always mailing me infertility articles or saving them for me and then handing them to me…I resent it but I take them because I know if I haven’t read it already then I would have read it if I came across it on my own…and she means well. :)

    I’m 5 months pregnant and never thought i could get pregnant as i hadn’t had any periods for years. I’m sure my baby will be so cute too! I just wanted to tell you all what really helped me was a therapist called marisa peer. After seeing Marisa i began having periods again and got pregnant in no time. I was fortunate enough to get a copy of Marisa’s book Trying to get Pregnant (and Succeeding) on pre release and I am lucky enough to say it has worked for me! The book is positive, reassuring and repeats things enough so that they actually sink in.
