PCOS is getting to me

Melinda • Mama to Rowan
My husband and I have been off of birth control for 3 years, and actively TTC for 2. I was diagnosed with PCOS about a year ago, but always suspected I had it. Lately I have found it really hard to keep my head up. PCOS is rearing its ugly head even more these days. I am really seeing the side effect of hirsutism (which is the most humiliating thing ever!) and it's exhausting to keep up with the waxing. Also exhausting to keep up with the supplements, progesterone cream, having sex regularly even when my libido is nonexistent and my cervical mucus is low. I talk with my husband about it, and the only advice he gives me is to take it one day at a time and that worrying won't get us anywhere. No one in my family has suffered from infertility and his family is OVER-fertile. My periods are starting to regulate slowly but reading forums and reviews of supplements and creams only makes me more nervous. Just getting pregnant is half the battle, then you have to worry about misscarrying which seems to be really common. I just want one child of our own, and I would be happy. I don't think I could handle the thought of miscarriage. I just get down about how difficult it is for me to conceive when others can sneeze and get pregnant. How do you keep your head up in times of sadness?
