Sending a hug and lot of support your way. I’ve got a few friends who have struggled with fertility challenges who have become mothers within the last couple years. I hope you get your time and that the road between here and then is filled with joyful miracles and plenty of supportive loving community.

steny03 :  As someone who’s been dealing with infertility for almost 4 years now, I know all too well what it feels like to constantly be on the receiving end of “we’re pregnant!” announcements when all we desperately want is to be able to have a child. 

What I can tell you is that there are definitely options for someone with PCOS! If you are serious about TTC, talk to your doctor, get a referral to a fertility clinic (let your doctor know you’ve been unofficially trying for years now, otherwise they may make you wait a year for a referral). 

One thing you can try without a referral to a clinic is myo-inositol.  It has shown promising outcomes for women with PCOS.  It comes in powder form that you add to water and drink once or twice a day. 

Sending you strength and positivity 🙂

PCOS doesn’t mean that you won’t have children, it just may mean you need additional help.  both my son and my current pregnancy are IVF babies.  infertility sucks.  even with being pregnant with #2, it still hurts when people announce their pregnancies, especially when they aren’t even trying. 


you said you are only NTNP, but i suggest making an appointment with an RE to get the ball rolling.

I totally understand the stress regarding your SIL being pregnant.  Take care of yourself and do things for you until you are ready to start really trying for a baby.  

Also, I agree with ajillity81 :  .  Go straight to an RE.  If you’ve been not using any protection and not natural family planning for years, then I wouldn’t TTC normally for a year before seeking help especially because you know you have PCOS.

What youre going through is so hard. I too have PCOS and i dont ovulate. I was given a 1% chance without fertility treatments. Weve been trying for 11 months and had 1 failed IUI. My most recent IUI resulted in a bfp but was told today that i only have a 50% chance of a viable pregnancy. My best friend told me she was pregnant the day after i found out my first IUI failed. She also let me know it only took her 1 month and she had no idea it could happen so fast… it is so SO hard to want something so bad and other people get it. I feel you bee.
