    @Tangled:  Im in a similair situation,I was diagnosed a month or two ago with PCOS,and knowing that diet/weight can affect it,I asked my doctor if I should concentrate on losing weight. His reply was that as I was at a healthy weight already,losing any weight couldnt guarantee any improvement. But,as I said Ive only just been diagnosed, and at the moment it seems that I am only suffering mild PCOS,as in my cycles are only a little longer than normal, (around 40 days the longest) However as Im in my early 20s, and it seems to have only recently emerged, I need to go for further tests to really get a good idea of severity.

    I was informally diagnosed with PCOS in December, based on some symptoms and LH:FSH ratios.  I changed my diet to a low-glycemic diet, like the South Beach Diet, and saw some improvement in my cycles, lost about 15 pounds, and was feeling better overall, but my cervical mucus virtually disappeared.  (Sorry, Too Much Information, but…relevant to TTC).  We started “trying/whatever happens, happens” in February…in April/May, I cut out artificial sweeteners from my diet as well.  Mid-June, I had my BFP!
