we were put on progesterone, and then clomid, it worked the second time around, and then we didnt think that we could get preggo again with out help, so we didnt worry about protection, and sure enough when our son is a year and four mo the new baby will be here.

I have PCOS, I got pregnant with my son, Zachary and we weren't even trying to get pregnant, after 10 yrs of marriage and being told we probably wouldn't be able to have kids. I also have IR, but I had gastric bypass and that reversed my IR. We have been trying this time since 2007, and had no luck on clomid to ovulate, but I am on Femara and ovulating with this medication. Back in December I had to have a uterine fibroid removed and the doctor also did "laproscopic ovarian drilling." That got me ovulating with no medications but he added the Femara to enhance it. I am not pregnant yet, and I am taking this month off to give my body a rest from the medications. I am only ovulating good from my right ovary, so this was a good month to take off since I should ovulate from the left!! Good luck trying to conceive!!! :D

I have PCOS and was also put  on metformin after trying to conceive for about 3 years with no success. Within three months of taking the drug I was pregnant with my daughter. Three years later  I fell pregnant eith my second with out even trying. Generally once you fall pregnant it is something of a cure.

I was diagnosed with PCOS about two years ago.  My doctor put me on Metformin, which I took religiously, and found that it didn't do anything to make my periods regular.  My mother bought me a book called "The Insulin Resistance Diet".  Women with PCOS often have a resistance to insulin which affects your endocrin system.   I ended up regulating my periods fairly successfully with what I ate (going from about two a year to having one about every 5 to 6 weeks).  And quite honestly, I am not a diet person, but this book was very easy to follow even if you are a person who goes out to eat a lot.   It was also a quick read.  I read it in an evening.  I was on  the diet for about 5 months when all of a sudden I thought it stopped working, but it turns out I was pregnant.



I found the book to be much more helpful than the drugs.

I personally don't, but my girlfriend does. She and her husband have been trying to 5 years now. She recently started taking Metformin (usually for diabetes) but helps control the PCOS.  I am keeping my fingers crossed that this will help. Talk with your doctor about options and what will help you with conceiving.  Good luck!
