I might break up with my boyfriend because he doesn't understand my PCOS

DEAR DEIDRE: WHEN I discovered last year that I have polycystic ovaries, it made me want to try for children as soon as possible.

The condition means there is less chance I will get pregnant naturally and I know I want to be a mum, so don’t see the point of waiting around.

My boyfriend and I started dating three years ago and I have been open about my health and my timeline.

Initially he said he was extremely supportive. I’m 25, he’s 26.

But now, whenever my friends or I bring up babies, he shuts the conversation down.

I’m wondering if he just agreed because he thought I’d change my mind.

I feel like I’m running out of time, and I am now considering breaking things off with him to find someone that does want those things in the near future.

DEIDRE SAYS: It sounds as though your boyfriend isn’t ready for a family of his own just yet. He may have agreed to your timeline because he genuinely thought he would be ready.

You need to have a frank and honest conversation about both your plans.

Try not to put too much pressure on him – this is only going to have the opposite effect.

Do explain if he doesn’t want the same as you, it would be far better for both of you to come clean.

Discussing this all with a counsellor may help, so I’m sending you my support pack which shows where to find support locally.
