I have had two miscarriages and am about to turn 31. I have been told I have pcod. Is there any hope for my husband and I to have a baby?

In brief: Yes
I believe you meant pcos (polycystic ovary syndrome - at least is known commonly by this name vs.
Pcod). Women with this syndrome still have a chance of conceiving a baby especially given the fact you've had 2 prior pregnancies, although, resulting in miscarriage. Losing weight if you are overweight, would help. Metformin has shown promise. Clomid (clomiphene) is known to be used for ovulation induction.

I would add only that women with PCOS frequently exhibit hirsutism (excessive hairiness on lips chest, abdomen) and they tend to be insulin resistant ( which is why meteor in can have a helpful role). Their biggest perceived problem is anovulation (don't ovulate), making it very hard to get pregnant. There are good therapies, however, so see a good ObGyn..

From a Psychiatric perspective it's important when treating young female children and adolecents for behavior disorders and bipolar disorders to avoid divalproex Na (depakote) since the issue of polycystic ovaries is a possible side effect of that medication. Oddly enough, accelerated hair loss is also a side effect of depakote.

In brief: PCOS and pregnancy
Some patients with pcos do have a higher chance of miscarriages.
Still, with treatment, you and your husband have a very good chance of having the family you want. Still, you should get help from a provider who specializes in treating patients with pcos so that you can conceive and deliver successfully.
