Did you speak with your doctor? S/he may have specific advice considering your age and medical condition. Good luck!

Congratulations on your recent marriage!  I hope you had a wonderful, fun wedding!  You can buy good pre-natal vitamins at the store without a prescription.  I buy mine at Whole Foods and they are food based.  If you read through the posts on this board, you will get tons of good information.  There are some other women with PCOS who’ve been TTC.  This is a really supportive and informative community.  Welcome!

I forgot to add, if you want some good books to read, I read What to Expect Before You’re Expecting and Before Your Pregnancy: A 90-Day Guide for Couples on How to Prepare for a Healthy Conception.  Both these books have lots of helpful information in all areas including nutrition.

@CindyRelly:  I would get in and talk to your Gyn. They may want to do some baseline testing or they may just have you try for six months and than come back.

I definetly wouldn’t try without help for longer than six months since you are 36 and have PCOS. I know ladies who hyave been put on Metformin to help regulate PCOS and get there cycles fixed and who have gotten pregant.

Good Luck. I understand, I got married at 36 and wanted to wait a year to try so we did. I than ended up trying for a year before we got help, which might have been a mistake. I’m now 38 and working with an RE and will be doing medicated IUI next month.

Congrats!! Hope you have a fantastic honeymoon. ๐Ÿ™‚

If you didn’t have PCOS, I would say just to try on your own for 6 months, but due to that and your age I would go see a fertility doctor and have a full work-up. They’ll be able to give you a gameplan and not waste any time. Some women with PCOS get pregnant quickly, but as you know some take a lot longer so I would make an appt. to at least discuss these issues. Good luck to you!!

Definitely pre-natals.  Other then that, I’d just talk to your OB or if you have one, your endocrinologist.  I have PCOS as well, and after going off of BC I didn’t have a period or ovulation for 17 months, BUT I also hadn’t been working on losing weight.  

My endocrinologist has me on Metformin and Synthroid for my PCOS and thyroid issues as well as a bevy of supplements (D3, B12, Fish Oil).  Once I had my first actual cycle, I got pregnant that cycle, but sadly miscarried a couple weeks later.  I’m on my first cycle after the miscarriage now and feeling confident that we’ll be pregnant again soon. 

 

I’m wishing you good luck and a fast bfp!!

Get a prenatal vitimin w/ folic acid ASAP.  Birth control pills sap your body of folic acid, and it’s really important for a healthy pregnancy.  Good luck with TTC!
