I was diagnosed in July of 05 with PCOS after my husband and I had been trying for about a year to get pregnant. I was on metformin from then until May of 06. In December of 05, I started the clomid - we did 3 rounds. The 3rd round, I was like a previous poster who went every other day to have an ultrasound and watched the eggs develop (we watched 3). Then I got a shot in the hip too and we did the timed intercourse thing. That is how our son was conceived.



After having him, I was on the mini-pill for a while and then stopped taking it when he was a year old. It was within 2 weeks of when he stopped nursing that I was pregnant with our daughter.



My biggest suggestion would be to hang in there. The process gets very frustrating and it can be hurtful sometimes how many people around suddenly seem pregnant while you're trying. Hang in there!

I was self diagnosed after I had my kids. Frustrated with all the weight gain, I was close to giving up. As it turns out after some major investigating, it appears that several of my family members unknowingly had this. I had 3 miscarriages over the years of trying and finally became pregnant with my son and 19 moths later had my daughter. We wanted one more, but I missed the most important piece of what was happening. My hair was dry and brittle and I was gaining weight like a parade float.



I now take Vitex and Dong Quai which have given me back a piece of womanhood. No cramps, I am not looking for my period, my hair has life. So now I just am working on the weight gain.



 



Good luck and many blessings to each of you on your journey!

I have PCOS and now have 3 children! In 2001 my dr. gave me a birth control pill called Yasmin to shrink the the cyst...I took them for a year and the cyst went down significantly. By Sept. 2003 I became pregnant with my first child, 8 months later with my second and my last 6 months ago. I also tried to get my mind off of having children and just have fun. That worked for me. I wish you lots of luck...don't give up!

I was just diagnosed Thursday with PCOS by my reproductive endocrinologist.  I just started seeing him because I wasn't having any luck getting pregnant with my OB/Gyn.  I've been on Clomid and am starting a Clomid/Metformin combination.  He's actually put me on birth control pills to reduce the cysts in my ovaries and to bring on a period (I tried Provera, but I didn't get a withdrawl bleed after being on it for 10 days).  I go back in a month to make a plan, but we think we're going to use 150mg of Clomid and 1500mg of Metformin.



I've been reading a lot about PCOS and it looks like one of the best things you can do to improve your fertility chances is to eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly.  They say that even losing 10 pounds can make a big difference.



Good luck.  We've been trying for 2 1/2 years, but I've only been trying the fertility medications for 2 months.  I would recommend seeing a Dr. trained in Reproductive Endocrinology (sometimes called a fertility doctor).  Unfortunately they're not usually covered fully by insurance, but in my case it's the only chance I've got.

I have PCOS too. I had my child in 1998 and this is how I did it. I took Chlomid to begin with. That was only enough to make my follicle big enough to ovulate, but not to ovulate. I had vaginal ultrasounds done everyday for a week until my follicle was large enough. Then I got a shot in my hip of something (I think estrogen, you're doctor should know). We then had to have sex every morning and every evening for a week. It worked first month out for me. I used Dr. Lieberman in Bradenton, FL. I hope this helps.
