My OB-GYN recently put me on Femara for PCOS. My husband have been trying to conceive for five years on and off and I finally decided to get help to conceive. We have an 8 year old son, whom we had before I was diagnosed. I'm on my first cycle of Femara right now and we're really hopeful it's going to work. Has anyone had any luck with Femara or know anyone that has conceived while on it? Thanks :-)

When diagnosed with PCOS it may be very difficult for a woman to understand. Many woman go through a cycle of mixed emotions. And some may worry about being able to get pregnant and have offspring of their own. However, there’s still hope for you and many other women facing this challenge. I found some really interesting information that will assist you as it did me. Information on how to get pregnant fast and have a healthy pregnancy, the hidden truth behind everyday activities & their impact on your fertility, simple things you can do every day to increase your chances of conceiving, even in women with PCOS or have an irregular cycle, how to lose weight in a healthy manner which will mean improving your chances of getting pregnant, and so much more. I believe there is a holistic approach to our shared problems rather than more and more drugs. Pregnancy for me is a total approach in both mind and body. Here is the link FYI http://aboutgettingpregnant.com .

Thanks Amanda! I've done quite a bit of research about it and as far as I could find it wasn't linked to any birth defects. I'm really hopeful it works though! I'm in my first cycle of it and wont find out for another week if it worked or not...keeping my fingers crossed! :)

I have two friends that also have PCOS! One of them was on Femara for a year and nothing happened after that she tried clomid and metaformin but they both gave her headachs and what not.. she was put back on Fermara after about 6 months of trying the other two and was PG on her first cycle...so it works but may take some time! You may want to read up about Femara a little.. it does have a possible higher incidence of birth defects but check with the FDA and your OB.
