Katie A
PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) sufferer

I am asking for prayers for all women dealing with the scourge of PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and all the horrible symptoms that go along with this terrible syndrome, including and especially my dear friend.

PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) is a horrible endocrine disease that acts like diabetes. PCOS causes infertility in addition to above average weight gain (in most women). Katie-Bob has gained over 100 pounds with this disease, and it leaves her unable to have children (even though she and her husband are desperate for children). She is currently under the care of multiple doctors, but she is not allowed to try to conceive until her insulin and glucose levels return to normal and she loses the weight she gained from the onset of the syndrome (almost 150 pounds). The medicines usually prescribed for this syndrome are not showing results yet, but we pray that a miracle will yet occur. She is not alone in her suffering, and more and more women are being diagnosed with this silent destroyer of hopes. Please pray for divine intervention for Katie-Bob for divine intervention in her attempt to start her weight loss and a miracle regarding her insulin and glucose levels.

I also have PCOS-I too gained over 100 pounds from this disease, but lost every bit of it when(through fertility) I got pregnant and delivered. I am 35 and the Doctors don't speak highly of women my age with this disease and don't promise good results in trying to get pregnant, but you see GOD knows what is in store for us, he is faithful and he is merciful, he blessed my husband and I with a beautiful baby this last May. She is healthy and I use this experience as a testimonial to all those women out there desiring this most honorable blessing.

you will have a child. Don't give up hope!

It is written in your Word, lord that it is your will to heal disease, as long as the person is obedient to the Word and has the fear of God in their heart. I pray Katie-Bob will seek you Lord for her healing, and I pray for great faith, the kind that can move mountains. I ask you Lord for her healing, also, and for the blessed gift of a child. In Jesus Name. Amen

Katie and Bob, I can truly relate to what you're going thru. My husband and I have been married since 1998, have not used birth control through now and we still haven't gotten pregnant. I was diagnosed with PCO in 1996, after not having a period for two years following my discontinuing PCBs. I knew that has been the underlying cause. I have countless challenges with my weight. but have persisted and lost about 50 lbs (the first time in 1997) and aprox 30 over the past 7 months. I finally saw a GYN that was willing to listen to and help me. Last June she put me on Metaformin (a med for type 2 diabetics) to help regulate my insulin and periodically gave me Provera. I took the Metaformin from June 2002 to September 2002 1 to 4 times daily. By November I was having a period regularly. So far I have been regular and I've gone from a size 16-14 (several years ago, I was a size 18-20). I'm really optimistic that my cycle will continue to be regular. It's been hard journey, but I'm optimistic that it won't be long before my husband and I become parents. Don't yout too dispair. I will pray for you two daily. Try to stay positive. Go to your doctor and ask him about Metaformin and any other meds that are being used to help with who suffer with PCO. If your doctor doesn't want to give it to you find one who will. I wish you both peace and blessings. Congratlations in advance on your new bundle of joy!

Dear Lord, Please bless this couple with a beautiful soul. I feel for her. I thank you each day for the beautiful soul that I have brought into this world. She is such a sweetheart. I too have this disease. I have become pregnant twice since I had her with no success. The first one was real bad, I ended up having a tubal pregnancy and the tube had to be removed and the second pregnancy, I lost the baby at 16 weeks and have tried unsuccessfully for the last two years to conceive. I too am just like you, I would love to have another precious little one. May God Bless you and may you become pregnant soon with a healthy baby. Take care and keep your chin up. God's will be done. Amen

I am so encouraged by all of the support from women who have and are living with this challenge. I am 48 years old. I was told at the age of 17 that I would not be able to have children because of polycystic ovaries which prevented me from becoming pregnant, and an incompetent cerevix which would prevent me from carrying a pregnancy to full term if by some "miracle," I did get pregnant.

I was not married and I had only went to the doctor because of my "female" problems. This news really upset me because I had always assumed that I would get married and have as many children as we wanted.

While diabetes was in my family both maternal and paternal, I was not told of the connection between my condition and diabetes.

A few years later, I did get married. I am a "faith" walker and I did not really accept the earlier diagnosis fom the doctors. When we did not get pregnant within the first year, I decided to do something about it. I did what I had been taught to do; I went to the Bishop (my pastor) and told him what I had been told years before. The Bishop and his council prayed for me, layed me on the altar and anointed me with oil. During the prayer, they layed hands on me across my stomach and prophesied that I would "be fruitful and multiply."

I became pregnant wihtin one year and had six more pregnacies over the following years. Three of my pregnacies were successful; I have three daughters, all healthy adult women. They are my "gifts."

This year, I was diagnosed with diabetes. I have spent the last 25 years fighting it but after a long struggle with a chronic illness, I gained weight, (100+ lbs.) and I have not been able to lose it. Along with the diabetes, is hypertension and high cholestrol.

I know that there is some scientific and medical explanation for all of this, however, I am going back to the altar with the faith that took me all those years ago; the faith that let me get up off of the altar knowing that God was going to do what I had asked Him to do. I am going t leave the "weight" on the altar! I am not expecting to have any more children, but I am healed today in the name of Jesus Christ, from the diabetes, the hypertension, and the high cholestrol! I am also healed from every illness, disease, and condition that the enemey has tried to bring against me!

I pray that all who will believe with me for total healing and deliverence, will agree right now in the name of Jesus Christ, that we are free from the symptoms also and there is no more even a trace of the thing.

In Jesus Christ name I pray, AMEN>
