@lavenderstone:  Thank you so much for sharing your story!!

Congrats, I’m really happy for you!

I also have PCOS. I did use Clomid to get pregnant, but I also lost 25 lbs concurrently, which I believe helped the Clomid to work better.

I think the discourse regarding PCOS and fertility is very problematic and unconstructive. I was absolutely positive it would take me years to get pregnant after hearing so many negative viewpoints regarding our condition. Of course, for some women it does make things harder- but it is not a definite indicator that you will deal with infertility for a long period of time!

I got pregnant from my first round of Clomid, and I have several family members and friends with PCOS who got pregnant without any treatment at all.

So while it will be different for each women- PCOS does NOT mean you’ll have a long road of fertilit struggles. It just depends.

@lavenderstone:  I love that you shared this story with us! I have a very similar story as well. I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 19, after losing my fallopian tube to an ectopic pregnancy. I too have had cycles as long as 8-9 months, was not ovulating regularly, and was given a grim outcome by doctors. In the past I’d tried metformin, but my cycles would always go back to their crazy self after a while on it. It wasn’t until I went gluten free and starting living healthily that my life really changed, and six months later, at the age of 24, I naturally conceived my daughter without any medical help at all. I am now 31 weeks pregnant and forever grateful that I read into natural methods to control PCOS. I truly believe it is the key to fertility.
