LaPetiote:  My best friend’s other friend, who is in her mid-30’s was not ovulating on her own without any medical explanation. Doctors couldn’t identify why. She was started with clomid last yearand I think after the 4th cycle, she got pregnant with twins. She should be having the babies anytime this month.

I’m a clomid baby. Mom had PCOS and with the meds she had me.

I have PCOS, and (after trying on our own for a year) did one round of clomid.  It only produced one good follicle for me (which is ideal), so I definitely wasn’t overstimulated.  I did get pregnant that cycle.  It ended in a MMC, but we will be trying again soon!  Good luck!

LaPetiote:  I have suspected PCOS although I do ovulate on my own, just not very well.  I’m on my second round of Clomid right now.  It did move my ovulation date up significantly and fixed my LP so at least there’s that.

I have PCOS and was on a low-medium dose of metformin for about 2-3 months before starting Clomid. I took 2 rounds of Clomid and at the same time I ended the second round I also bumped up the metformin to 2000mg/day. I never got a positive OPK when I should have, but around cd32 I got a really strong positive and here I am almost 14 weeks pregnant (with just one)! I honestly don’t know if it was the clomid or metform (timing wise I think it was the increase in metformin), or a combination of both. I don’t think I had hyperstimulation but I’ve heard the chances of multiples increase with clomid use. Good luck!!

I found out I have PCOS about six months ago. I’m not TTC any time soon (getting married next year, sometime after that) but, I’d love to learn more about what the standard process is for doing so with PCOS. Do most doctors recommend or require you try to do so naturally for a certain amount of time before they will prescribe meds? I’m in my 30s now so time isn’t exactly on my side. If anyone wants to share any info it’d be much appreciated!

beachbride310:  I was told, in UK, that despite diagnosis and very long and irregular cycles (it feels like a joke even calling them that, to be honest), I would have to try a year before I would be seen by a specialist or offered any intervention. It has left me devastated. My impression from American posters is that intervention is much more readily available, from the very beginning of TTC, for those with PCOS. But maybe I’m wrong, or maybe it varies.

The doctor tried to reassure me with statistics about how many women with PCOS do conceive. But when I pressed her, she admitted that an almost complete absence of periods, as in my case, is not a good sign. And yet no allowances are made in terms of onward referral.

LaPetiote:  I can update now.  After our second round of Clomid we are pregnant!  I’m still nervous as I’ve had some bleeding but that was a week ago and I’m still very pregnant so we will see.
