Back to PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) awareness

Did you know PCOS causes recurrent miscarriages?

I just Lost my 3rd angel baby on 9/11/08 and fetal tissue analysis results came back normal..meaning it was hormonal and all arrows point to PCOS.. PCOS has taken 3 babies from me..
I'm seeing a specialist in late November 2008 in hopes this ends here!!!

hope this info helps....
