How long did it take you to get pregnant with PCOS?

My husband and I have been trying to concieve for the last few years but I was diagnosed with PCOS early this year. I have been seeking out fertility treatments since then but the problem is I still haven't ended up pregnant. I am quickly lossing hope, and money. Everyone has told me to just do it naturally and I will be blessed with a bundle when I least expect it but...I still can't shake the feeling of having something missing in my life (I have no children)...What do you suggest? How long did it take you? Any words of wisdom?

  • Have you been prescribed metformin? Many women with PCOS are put on it to aid in their fertility. It's normally a diabetic drug used to help your body use the insulin your body makes, but it does increase fertility levels.

  • I was put on clomphiene. The drug that forces eggs to come up.

  • Metformin and Clomid should be used TOGETHER in women with pcos! Most women with this condition are insulin resistant which is the reason for the methformin. That allows the Clomid to do its job of causing the body to release an egg.
