I had my daughter before i was diagnosed, but it does explain why it took over 2 years for us to concieve her. When i found out i had PCOS i asked my dr if i would be able to have more children and she simply said you already have 1 why worry!!! I as amazed that someone in her position could be so heartless. I have always wanted 4 children but will probably no stop at 2. We are going to start trying again in August. Best of luck :)

I have not been diagnosed officially with PCOS. I have always had an irregular cycle. I conceived my first child in about a month of trying. My diabetes doctor credited it to being on NutriSystem, since it deals with the low-glycemic index and gets your insulin in line. I had gestational diabetes and now have type II. I am considering a second child and am back on NutriSystem to help with weight loss for the diabetes. PCOS and diabetes deal with/affect your insulin. I would suggest having a good talk with your doctor to ease your concerns.

My husband and I tried for about 7 years to conceive. I was diagnosed with PCOS about halfway into that, and tried various things including Clomid. Nothing worked, and my cycle was crazy. I finally went to a fertility specialist. I don't remember what the drugs were, but I had to give myself daily shots in the abdomen to make me ovulate and produce ripe eggs, then I had to give myself a shot of some other drug a day or two before I was artificially inseminated with my husband's sperm. My beautiful daughter is three years old now, and I also have an adopted son. I'm not sure I'd want to go through it again, but I'm not doing anything to prevent pregnancy if it happens on its own.

i have pcos and i am lucky enough to have 4 daughters. the first was before i was diagnosed then after 4 years of trying i got tested, after being referred to the hospital i was given clomid and 2 months later conceived my second daughter, my third came just 6 months later but i think that was from ust having a baby, my 4th was 4 years later and more clomid but i find every time i lose between 1-2 stone it works, the same for under weight people adding some weight has the same affect even when your cycle is around 2 periods a year like mine is. if you have had one baby i would say keep positive, keep on at the doctors and soon you will have another. good luck and all the best, x

I was diagnosed almost seven yrs ago. I was told we wouldn'y be able to have kids, sometimes I wouldn;t have a cycle for mths/! It can be very nerve racking, and slightly depressing. But then somthing crazy happened. After 5 yrs of using no protection at all, I had lost about 30 pds, we were pregnant! And now we have a beautiful baby boy! My advice stay calm, live your life normal, excersise daily if can, and God willing it will happen! Hope it does for you.

I was diagnosed with pcos and told that i might never have any children, my doc gave me clomid and 8 months later i was pregnant with my first child, a boy then when he was 8 months old i thought i would start trying for baby number 2 and just 1 month later i fell pregnant with not 1 but 2 little miracles a boy and a girl, 4 years later i fell with my 4th baby a boy while i was on the pill and then 3 years after that i fell pregnant with my 5th baby a girl while i was on the pill and using a condom!!! So dont worry to much sweetie i was told i would probably never have children and was blessed with 5 of them.. Good luck and God bless.
