Hi, I'm a newbie here so I wanted to get acquainted with all of you.😇  This forum is a chance for me to start my journey to a new life. I am 40 and have PCOS. I was diagnosed when I was 28. My periods were not regular throughout my life, but I did not pay much attention since a lot of women have similar problems. I had a great job, had no family, and didn’t think about children. I was engaged in a career. But at the age of 25, I met my husband and in two years (27) we understand that we are ready to have a child. We’ve been TTC for a year but couldn’t (28). I noticed that my periods became less frequent than usual and I started to worry about it. Once, after I missed my periods at all, I went to consult the ObGyn. The doctor ran hormone tests, took my history, and did a transvaginal ultrasound. She diagnosed me with PCOS and told me that I need treatment as it was the cause of my infertility. After some investigation, I found that since adolescence, I was having PCOS symptoms such as hair loss and weight gain. I thought it was just a lack of vitamins. I was trying to deal with all this, but it was tough mentally, and I didn't know what to do.😞 I have consulted the specialists and was told that there were no chances for us to have a baby since PCOS diagnosis. I went through ICSI with donor eggs and now I have a wonderful 6yo-daughter. But it took me 7 years to get bfp

Now, I got married for the second time and we want to have common children. My DH knows about my infertility and supports me. He is amazing and I am grateful for him. We will go to a specialist as soon as it will be possible and this time we go to another one. But due to COVID we can't do it now and it is good I think... I have more time to get ready, to think this decision over. All of this is connected to my fears, my diagnosis, age, and many other factors and I feel like I'm going crazy. I want to have children but afraid to go through all of this again. My head is a mess
