  • I have it and had 3 children. My dd has it and she had 2 children. It's possible to have children with it. My doctor didn't give me anything. Not sure if the doctor gave my dd anything.

  • btw the idiot doctor did tell me I'd never have children bc of PCOS. I guess I showed him! lol If I remembered his name I'd send him pix. Don't believe everything doctors tell you if they told you that you couldn't have them

  • I have PCOS and 3 kiddos. 2 were conceived without any help. The 3rd took a while and some serious fertility drugs plus metformin, actos and a low dose aspirin.

    But every case is different. My mom, grandmother and great grandmother likely all had it as well. Great-grandma had 7 children, but mom and grandma only had 1 each.

    If you do not like what your doctor is saying, or feel that you are not being heard, ask for a referral to a reproductive endocrinologist and/or fertility specialist.
