Women who suffer from PCOS can either have very irregular periods or heavy bleeding during periods. Another common symptom of PCOS is excessive hair growth on the chest, back, neck, toes and face.

You need to see your doctor. PCOS cause infertility by changing your hormones and preventing ovulation. Your doctor will have to determine if you are ovulating or not. If not, there is hormonal treatments that can attempt to make you ovulate.

It is fairly easy to see if you are ovulating by looking at the ovaries and follicles with an ultrasound.

Best of luck with TTC
