I would start with an OB-gyn, a gen doc will likely just refer you there anyway. An ob-gyn may be able to do something or may just send you to a fertility clinic but the ob-gyn will have a starting point.

AmandaandJoshuaa:  I would go straight to an RE.  With a diagnosed issue and 2 years of unprotected sex and no pregancy, I would go straight to the doctors who are trained to deal with this and whos goal is to get you pregnant.  An OB, to me is like a general doctor for “lady parts”, but not a specialist in fertility.  My time with an OB was wasted time imo.  She went for the “easy drug”, Clomid, but did not monitor.  Then when I told her Clomid didn’t work (39 day cycle) she said I should see an RE anyways cause there wasn’t anything else she could do for me since the easy shot in the dark drug didn’t work for me.

AmandaandJoshuaa:  I agree with all pinkshoes: said. Go see an RE. They can send you for testing and work around your own unique issues. REs are more knowledgeable when it comes to fertility and what to do to get you pregnant. Good luck.

AmandaandJoshuaa:  Do some research into PCOS and what you need to to do control it. Maybe diet, maybe drugs. Learn how to control your blood sugar (my Nutritionist suggested drinking Kate’s Miracle Hydrating drink (google it). Totally eliminated my sugar cravings! Easy to make and I like the taste)

Find and RE that understands PCOS.

I would go see an RE.  My PCP wouldn’t do anything for it other than refer me…she would not even prescribe metformin,
