I was recently diagnosed with PCOS. My doctor believes that if I lose some weight that my symptoms will go away and I will once again ovulate. We really want to add a second child to the family so hopefully this works. We'll be discussing options after Christmas if things haven't changed.

I have PCOS and did have alot of trouble getting pregnant, but once we figured out the 'formula' I got pregnant 4 times out of 6 cycles! I have 2 miscarriges, but have 2 beautiful little girls!

I went through fertility treatments (IVF) due to a male infertility factor, but before we started the process the doctors did tell me they thought I might have PCOS as well. We now have a 1 year old son and were successful on our first try with IVF. My sister-in-law also has PCOS and she conceived one child without infertilty treatments and one with treatments. Good luck!

I'm 27 and just had my first child September 2006. I was diagnosed with PCOS 2 years ago. I went on rounds of Clomid, with no luck. My doctor suggested the fertility shots, I wasn't ready for those so I stopped trying for awhile. Six months later I was pregnant. Everyone told me to stop "Trying" and it would happen. Sure enough it did. I sometimes think the stress of "trying" makes it even harder to become pregnant. My best advice, which I know first hand is hard to do, but just stop trying for a few months. Don't watch the calendar, don't "time" your intercourse, and see what happens. Of course there are no guarantees but it might just work for you too!

I also have PCOS and was able to get pregnant without the use of fertility treatments. If I want to get pregnant again the doctor has said she would recommend fertility treatments so don't give up hope!
