I would like to have one more baby?

I was diagnosed with Polycystic ovarian syndrome. I had a very hard time getting pregnant with my daughter. The doctor,one I'am seeing now, said he didn't know how I ever got pregnant. I take birth control just to have a regular period. They want to put me on metformin, to increase my chances. I was wondering if anyone knew someone or even themselves has this problem?

  • I had trouble getting pregnant with my first because I had a completely whackadoo cycle. So before I went on medication I took this stuff called Dong Quai Women's Treasure from Planetary Herbals and I was pregnant in 3 months. It apparently regulates your female system and gets your hormones in order. In my opinion, that is exactly what it did. Try it, or try a Homeopath before you try medications. You may be able to cure your PCOS so that your entire female system works better. I hope this helps!
