i was diagnosed with pcos and cervical cancer in may of 08' went off birth control in september of 08 and my husband and i are expecting our little one here within a few weeks...it all depends on the person, my doctor told me it'd take at least a year to get pregnant, but wam bam 3 months after stopping birth control we found out we were pregnant! just keep trying and eventually it will happen

Well, sometimes taking a drug that helps with your body's ability to process insulin helps, drugs like Metformin. Also, losing weight will help increase fertility when you have PCOS. Basically, it's like a metabolic syndrome and changing the way your body processes glucose and utilizes insulin will help you ovulate more regularly. But losing weight is a big one. Losing 10% makes a big difference. Good luck!

hi i have just been diagnosed with PCOS as well.... i have a 17month onl daughter and we fell pregnant without even trying however things havnt gone as smoothly since having my daughter, my periods still havnt really come back to narmal but we are getting there. my sister was also told that she had PCOS and that she would have trouble having children and she also has an 18month old now... its very hard i know to be really wanting something and not knowing if it could happen or when it will happen. If you are not having regular periods you can also go and see a gyno and they will prescribe you tablets that will help you regulate your periods and ovulate. Goodluck!!!

your best bet is to eat healthily and exercise more (if not already doing so) as this apparently increases fertility. Good luck x

I have been recently diagnoised with PCOS. However I am exteamli lucky as I didn't have trouble falling pregnant, my GP was telling me the best thing is to loose weight which lowers the insulin levels, in turn affects the hormone levels and you body returns to normal, unfortunatly the condition does make it difficult to loose the weight. weight loss is currently the closest thing to a cure that we currently have, I hope you found this info useful and I whis you all the luck in getting pregnant

it's different for everyone. i was diagnosed with it when i was 17 and I was able to get pregnant my first try at 23 and when we went to our first ultra sound they said there were no longer signs of it.

I personally haven't dealt with it but a friend of mine has. You probably don't want to hear this but for her it meant that it just took a really long time to fall pregnant and there isn't much you can do about it but try to relax and wait patiently......... pretty much impossible I know!! It took 2 years for her to fall pregnant. I hope you get pregnant sooner rather than later, good luck xx

Actually, no I don't but you can do some research on it. Hit the internet, the library, see a specialist.
