Just chiming in to say yep, another PCOS-er here. Have been diagnosed for nearly 2 years, coming up to 1 year of TTC, no luck so far. 2000mg of Met daily, plus my first Clomid cycle…

I have PCOS too – was diagnosed nearly 2.5 years ago. I completely understand where you are coming from with the fear of not being able to conceive because I haven’t started trying yet either. We won’t be getting married until July next year at the earliest – not engaged yet – so I have started working my hardest to get healthy. I was on Implanon for 3 years and my doctor thinks that it made my insulin resistance worse. Since coming off it in March I have only had 2 periods. My main aim at the moment is to lose weight because I am 114kg (250 pounds). After about a month of this I am only losing 1/2 a kg a wk! so a slow process but i’m plugging along.  I am planning to go back to the doctor during my January holidays to talk Metformin and get some more help. I was on Metformin for 3-4 months 2 years ago and couldn’t handle it bathroom wise but now that I am looking after myself better I am hoping it will react better to me.

@FutureMrs86:  Yet another one here.  I was diagnosed about 1.5 years ago.  I’m on 1500 mg of Metformin and it helps regulate my cycle to about 39-45 days.  For what it’s worth, when I was actively trying, my RE put me on the pill to help induce a period/ovulation.  He said that often the first month off the pill women can ovulate.  Just wanted to throw that out there for you.  Good luck!

I also have PCOS. I’ve been feeling really emotional about it lately and this post made me teary with all the mentions of PCOS bees who are pregnant or have been pregnant. So happy for you guys and thanks for the hope you give me.

I’m glad to see this post. I have PCOS, too, and just started TTC. My cycles are so random that I have no idea when or even if I am ovulating… I guess I should be talking to my gyno about all this. 

Anyway, OP, you’re not alone!

I also have PCOS, I was diagnosed when I was 16, I usually have 2 or 3 periods a year… I’m on 1500 mg of metformin and have done 4 cycles with clomid and haven’t ovulated, I’m am bcp this month and will do my last clomid cycle in december. I am not overweight, I’m just at the higher end limit of normal BMI but I just started eating healthier (I always eat healthy, I’m just taking it more seriously), I’m staying away from dairy (dairy is not good for PCOS) and I’m going to the gym at least 3 times a week, I want to lose 10-12 pounds. PCOS does not mean you won’t be able to get pregnant, It just mean you’re going to have to work harder and take better care of yourself to get there, most women with PCOS end up having babies.
