Ok, so I have PCOS, I havent had my period for 2 years, (besides 2 times & it was super light & lasted a day or 2) and my ovaries are filled with tiny cysts. My husband & I want to start trying for #2. Ive tried tons of different meds to try to start my period, so far nothing but birth control pills works. But it doesnt help every month. My doctor basicly told me there was nothing else she could do to help me. But dh & I were talking & think maybe if I take a bc pill once every other day, or so often. My period will start, but not be fully effective, so there's the chanc e I could get pregnant. Would that work? & what if I did get pregnant, would taking the pill harm the baby(up until I find out im rly pregnant)?Answer Question

Periods REALLY aren't the issue with PCOS. Ovualtion IS. You don't have regular periods because instead of ovulating the egg is turned into a cyst. I personally think this birth control idea is a good way to screw your body up.
Look into Soy Isoflavones. They have been VERY effective in women with PCOS because it's a sort of natural form of Clomid.
Also if you aren't already DEFINATELY start charting so that when your body DOES release an egg you won't miss it. You can learn how in the book Taking Charge Of Your Fertility.
A combination of Soy Isoflavones, charting and losing weight is probably your best bet at this point.
