Natural Ways to Increase Fertility

I had trouble gettting pregnant with my daughter (now 5) and had no trouble with my son (who is now 2.5, we charted, but I resumed my period after I bf my daughter for 22 mos and got pregnant in about 4mos). I badly want a third, and am not having any luck. I weaned him at 15 mos, but only got my period once.

More Fertility Questions

So I have posted quite a few questions about PCOS, Infertility, and such. I am at a complete loss and I know that my Doctor went to school and is trained to advise me in the proper course of care, but I can't help but be frustrated. My DH has twin boys from a previous marriage and was tested during our initial strings of test and he is totally healthy. High count in fact. I on the other hand have PCOS and hypothyroid. I have been trying to conceive for 3 years. For two of those years I was told you aren't getting pregnant because of your...
