PCOS complications while TTC: will sexual positions aid conc

User Profile
I am 32. I have been trying for a 5 years now and have not used contraception for the longest time. I have used medication to help me ovulate and have done the whole ultra sound checks every second day to check the growth of the ovary, all looked fine. I am not good at remembering the names of the medication. I was diagnosed with pcos 4 years ago, but the doctors said it was mild. Then when I had a laparoscopy I got a surprise. I have only one functional ovary with pcos. This was very depressing. I do get my periods regularly.I dont have almost any of the PCOS symtoms or are very mild.

My husband and I try using positions that elevate me after sex. I am not sure what else to try.

The position of the body during or after sex usually has nothing to do with the possibility of getting pregnant in cases of diagnosed PCOS. Medically speaking, it would better if you try to decrease your weight than focus on sexual positions. The real problem in women with PCOS is a lack of ovulation. Therefore, ovulation stimulators are used to treat PCOS. Examples of ovulation stimulators are: analogs of GnRH, FSH and LH and anti-estrogens (clomiphene). Metformin is also used to treat PCOS either in combination with ovulation stimulators, or on its own. You can also consider “in vitro” fertilization to conceive if these medications can provoke ovulation. A final solution includes laparoscopic surgical intervention on the functional ovary.
