I have two daughter's age 8 and almost 4. Both are clomid babies. We used it in conjunction with provera, as well as glucophage - but it is hard on your tummy!! Might I also suggest that you totally cut out carbs in your diet as well with your PCOS? IT has been a complete turn around for me! I went on the south beach diet essentially. I too have PCOS. Going on that diet brought back regular periods, which was foreign to me, I have lost weight and feel 100 times better. I'm pretty sure if we wanted a third it'd be no problem!

I have been dealing with PCOS for 20 years. I was diagnosed when I was 14! I ahve a 27 month old son. After trying EVERYTHING....I would highly recommend that you check out The Creighton Model (NaPro Technology) on the internet. This is an amazing program that has a higher success rate in achieving pregnancy than Clomid does! This program really gets you in touch with exactly how PCOS can wreck havoc a your body and mind. Good luck!

I have PCOS too. I have had 3 children without the use of anything, though we were going to go on Clomid for our second child, but after 4 yrs of trying I got frustrated and decided to quit trying and was going on the pill before I found out I was actually pregnant on my own. lol Have you tried Glyophage yet? Its a diabetic pill that seems to help PCOS women get pregnant. I was on the before my second one was conceived. If you need anyone to talk to about PCOS, feel free to write me. is a great resource on PCOS or any illness. Good Luck! I understand the frustrations involved with all this.
