Well, to me one of the best things you can do is exercise regularly and follow a somewhat diabetic diet. A lot of people with pcos also have insulin resistance which can also prevent ovulation. Some doctors prescirbe glucophage and clomid to help induce ovulation as well. It's a long road. You both may want to consult a reproductive endocrinologist. They know a lot more about this than a regular ob/gyn.

ok thanks for the comment and i have been to a gynacologist and he gave me metphormin which is for people with diabities which helps with the insulin imbalance. what is a reproductive endocrinologist? and i have been trying for 3 years and nothing has happened.

i also have PCOS and i am currently taking the drug metforim once a day to help "kick start" my ovaries as i havent had a period for 7months and for 3 years before that i was on the pill (cilest) my doctor has told me that i can have children still but i am in the early stages of finding a medication that works for me! at the moment i am only one 500mg a day and its not working,so i think i shall have to try a higher does.My friend also has PCOS but she only has one ovary,she used the drug clomid and shes is now 5 months pregnant! so you can yes,but not everyone with it can,some women need to use ivf!

A happy PCOS story!
Hi

My wife was diagnosed with PCOS about 3 years ago (before we got married). It was awful being told that we might never be able to have children so we made the decision to try before we got married (not ideal but glad we did!). Anyway to cut a long story short we tried for 9 months and almost gave up. We did get a positive result once but it turned to negative after a week so I guess we lost it. Then a few months later I remember coming home after work and my wife sitting there with a smile on her face - I knew straight away that she was pregnant! We didn't get overly excited as we thought we might lose the baby as many people with PCOS miscarry in the first few months. Anyway 9 months later little Joshua was born - a perfect little baby boy! He's now 2 and is my little mini-me and we love him to bits.

It seemed that everything we read was doom and gloom so I thought I would tell you our little story and don't give up!! It may take a while, even years but it can happen! The only thing I remember that might have made a difference is we both joined a gym and my wife did lots of exercise on the tread mill (for a couple of months if remember rightly). Whether or not this made a difference I don't know but it was around about that time she conceived. I also think she ate much more healthily as she was on a bit of a health kick at the time Smile

Good luck!

Just another note to say we are expecting baby number 2 (a girl!) due in september. Had a 3D scan and all ok Smile No real routine or any special diet but I think its easier the second time with PCOS?? Took about 4 months to conceive this time which is a little shorter than baby number 1!

Superdepressed, two months is not that bad it seems in comparison to the rest of us, I read somewhere there are more steril men then they'er are women. Trying to get pregnant can take some time. Find out when you ovulate (drug stores have the kit) it will let you know when the right time to concieve is. You can also tell by your vaginal dischard(this is going to soud gross but my doc told me this so..) if it is thin and watery and not thick(makes for good mateing I guess,lol). try not using any lube, that can effect trying to get pregnant too, smoking as well.

I have it as well, I'm lucky if I get my period once a year (and it usually only lasts a day). I was put on Metformin as well and it has not helped and it have been over 5 yrs. My doctor said I need to loose weight and to be honest I have not tried as much and someone who wants a baby should. I do have a friend though that has the same thing and the moment she lost her weight she became pregnant. I have heard many things that help and acupuncture is getting great reviews for people who have Polycystic ovarian syndrome (also called pcod or pcos). Weight loss of course is number one. I heard that being on birth control for awile regulates the hormones. IT IS NOT IMPOSSIBLE TO GET PREGNANT SO DON"T GIVE UP!! Some doctors might perscribe a combination of progesterone and a low dose of clomid ( a fertility drug, but you have to be watched by your doc cause it can make the cysts bigger and then you have more problems) have been known to be effective. Good luck to you all!
