  • My older sister has it. She had trouble conceiving her first, but it did happen with clomid. Her second was a "miracle" baby, no meds. The third took her almost two years TTC. She was on HUGE doses of clomid and a few other meds I don't remember. They were about to give up and try IVF. She doesn't think they will ever have another. The meds made her sooo sick while TTC and she had to stay on them while pregnant. I don't think she will go through it again.

  • My older sister had it as well. She had six kids. I think it simply depends on the person and severity.

  • I have it and weight loss hasn't helped me. I had to use clomid to conceive my son and we are currently on month #11 of TTC#2 and I am on my 2nd round of clomid once again.

  • I have pcos and it took about 10 months to get pregnant with my first with no help of fertility drugs or anything plus Im overweight. Then with my second we had tried for 11 months and nothing so we seeked the help of fertility drugs and got pregnant three months later and no I still never lost any weight.
