2 ?'s for women with PCOS.....

How likely is it for someone with PCOS to ovulate just 6-8 days from the first day of bleeding (period)? Also is a women with PCOS able to get pregnant on her own if shes had regular periods for the past two months? I have one child who is now two and I believe I had pcos when I concieved him but not 100% positive cause I was never checked for that. I just remember going three months wo a period while we were ttc and I thought I was pregnant but I wasnt and then all the sudden I started having my periods again and then was pregnant three months later.

  • I think with pcos you always kinda have it. Most the time you dont ovulate but alot of women do just fine with out any help with doctors. I have known I have had it for the last 5 years. I have only been pregnant once and that endd in a misacarriage. Yeah there is a chance to ovulate only 6 days after cd 1. With that being said you should end up with an early period because you have a period 2 weeks after ovulation.

  • I have PCOS, and was told by my doctor that it would be very hard for me to ever concieve, if I ever did. I dealt with it, and was okay with the thought that I will have to adopt when I want kids. Up until a couple of months ago (with having PCOS) I was on birth control to help regulate my periods and whatnot. Now I can laugh at my doctors, because I am three months pregnant with a healthy baby. I guess I was lucky; the birth control regulated my period enough and weren't full strength and I got pregnant when I didn't think I could. Don't rule it out, it's definitely possible!

  • I have PCOS. even when i would have regular periods I still wasn't able to concieve....about 6 months ago I started taking metformin and I am 3 1/2 months pregnant the metformin made be feel better...was a little difficult to deal with at first because it did cause diarhea<----sorry if thats but everything was fine about a week into taking it.

  • I have had PCOS for five yrs now and it took me 2 yrs to get pregnant with my first child. I lost her at five months due to an incompetent cervix. I was told to wait 6 months before trying again. it tooks us another 1 and a half to get pregnant with my daughter I have now. We are wanting another child but have been trying for 7 months already so I'm not sure what to tell you besides just pray and hope for a will happen i don't know when because with the PCOS I didn't ovulate every month and I sometimes go 2 to 5 months without periods. I haven't ask for any meds to help get pregnant because I feel like if its in gods will for me and my husband to conceive we will on our own but you can try taking meds to help you conceive.
