I love it
LOVE this! i want to get one too but i just dont know what to get!
I'm going to get on with words like faith, strength, hope, love, patience on teal making a ribbon with a teal heart in the middle. I might incorporate wings as well.
I have PCOS too, what does everything mean on this tattoo?
I don't know the person who has this tattoo but sparrow represent good luck and the needle is representative of infertility treatments.
Wow! Beautiful tat!
Thnx @Angie Kushner
@ Maureen...why are they all crazy? Just curious...
wow maureen...we r crazy...i suffer from pcos...every day is a struggle....whatever it takes to remind you to be strong!!!
I agree.... I suffer with this and can not start a family like I want to. How are we crazy for finding strength in this tattoo?
Is everyone who has this infertile? I swear my girlfriend had it and had (finally) a baby. Maybe there are different degrees??
I have PCOS as well. Been trying to get pregnant for awhile...doctor just put me on metformin. I think this tattoo is beautiful!
Why are you judging them? As a mother of 2 beautiful healthy sons, I couldn't imagine my life without them. I knew I was meant to be a mother. These women are tii. And they will, one day. Thank you for being so strong ladies ♥
I have PCOS and have had two children- without clomid or other drugs. It is possible. However it was only after losing about 40 lbs each time that I was able to get pregnant. My prayers are with you all that are having trouble getting pregnant!
5 to 10% of the female population suffer from a condition that is not talked out. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common female endocrine disorder. It can be diagnosed in all phases of life from little girls aged 8 to ladies post menopause. Chances are you know someone who has PCOS, who is afraid to talk about their condition for fear of your pity.
Crazy is a pretty strong word, and so is ignorance and to me someone who calls people crazy that are suffering with a condition that's a burden and cause infertility I believe those people are ignorant. I'm must be crazy for finding strength inmy fellow cysters and if that's crazy I don't want to be sane.
I have PCOS too and I was blessed with a beautiful daughter!! Without any drugs too!! and just like Amanda, it happened naturally after I lost 40 pounds.. Everyday with PCOS is a struggle, my appearance has changed completely in 6 years since my symptoms manifested. Too all my fellow Cysters Keep strong and know that you are not alone in your fight!
This is beautiful. I too have PCOS, been TTC for 8 1/2 years also issue is male factor infertility, our only option is IVF. And we are planning on adopting regardless of how many biological children you have.
Most women diagnosed find out when they are having trouble getting pregnant. But there are so many other symptoms of PCOS that when untreated can make life miserable, and causes painful cysts, many women with this are pre-diabetic or diabetic, and have an increase risk of heart attack. Despite being on a very rigid diet I was not able to loose weight (my insulin was ridiculous, so far no diabetes yet) or regulate my cycle. Started metformin and lost 25lbs in a little over a month, and my cycle became lighter and regular.
@Spritz Unleaded, yes there are different degrees of how it affects a woman. Some are able to get pregnant still relatively easily, others are never able to conceive. And at different times it can affect the same woman differently.
I suffer from PCOS & I want to ask all of you who have it also. What kind of symptoms are you getting? Darkness in skin color?
Lory, It's called Acanthosis Nigricans and I too have that symptom
stay strong sister :)
I also have PCOS and this tattoo is gorgeous. It's just beautiful.
@Evita Garcia, is there anything you are doing to help it? @Katherine, I also have cysts, acne problems & skin darkness in certain areas.. I hate it! & also extra weight. I am currently trying to get healthier to see if it'll minimize some of the other symptoms. Thnx for responding :)
I've been dealing with pcos for years. When I found out I had cysts in my uterus I just cried. I'm still on Metformin, have excess weight but fortunately the hair problem calmed down. Every doctor/clinic I go to thinks I have Diabetes because of the Metformin. I'm old enough now that I don't think of babies anymore, just the side effects of the condition!
I think the birds might be swallows; they were a symbol for lost children in Victorian times. Beautiful tattoo.
I am having problems with my weight, acne, and fertility problems and I am on metformin. Losing weight is obviously harder w pcos but I am doing the low amylose diet that is for women w pcos and it's really working. Just an idea!
Yeah I've have it too minus the cysts, and something that really helped me to lose weight and balance my hormones is HCG. It sucks girls, but at least we're not alone.
@ Angie Kushner what diet are you using for woman with PCOS?
Ladies!! I am so sorry for all of you struggling with infertility! I work at an Institute with a Doctor who has been working with women with infertility issues for almost 30 years...@Jennifer Moore his methods are 2 or 3 times more successful than IVF, and he can fix PCOS! He does surgeries every day on women that have endometriosis and PCOS....most of them can conceive afterwards, but ALL of them walk away healthier! Unfortunately, Doctors usually prescribe birthcontrol for these issues which don't cure the PCOS, just masks the real issues as to WHY you have it! Its like taking asprin for a headache instead of finding out what might be causing the headaches and going to the root of the issue! He is an amazing Doctor...our website is http://www.popepaulvi.com/, you can also read about it here, http://www.naprotechnology.... this is not spam or a joke..at least check out the website, and feel free to give us a call!
It's called the low amylose diet. Here's a few links,..
My phones being a pain google low amylose diet and pcos
I have PCOS and my doc put me on metformin and i never thought it would work... but 13 days later i was pregnant :D.... if you have pcos ask your doc about this.
I have been on metformin for almost two years and still no AF and no bfp.
I was put on metformin for a year then started clomid.....healthy, beautiful baby boy first time. Clomid does have a few side effects......my son is worth them all.
I was on the combination of Clomid and Metformin. It didn't work for me.
Thought I would share, while I was looking to design my infertility tatoo I came across yours and it inspired my design ;) http://hopeafterallpcos.com...
I have PCOS too and I've been pregnant 6 times.....only 2 children, 1 m/c, 3 ectopics...I had over 12 yrs infertility, ovarian drilling surgery and Atkins diet and 3 pregnancies within 18 months...unfortunately we lost all 3 (ectopic) from another matter unrelated to PCOS. Keep your sugars tightly reigned in and your weights down PLEASE!
Hi Ladies here is the breakdown of this tattoo.
Syringe-medications of course
stars are the # of IUI & IVF rounds I went through for my girls
