  • It might be possible for you to get pregnant on your own, but chances are you'll more than likely have to take fertility treatments which will increase your chances of getting pregnant a lot easier then just trying on your own without the treatmets.

  • I also have PCOS, and my doctor told me I would not be able to get pregnant with out fertility treatments. But, she was wrong.
    I have been on BC for the past few years and last March I conceived, and now have a beautiful, healthy 6 month old baby boy.
    So it definitely is possible to conceive on your own. I would try that first if I were you.
    Good luck!
    I hope I gave you a little bit of hope, to be able to do it naturally. :)
