    Seeing her tomorrow, so I will ask. I had poor milk supply too - was hoping to drop some of the baby pounds that way...but, no. I'm hoping to fall this month, otherwise fs wants to do another lap.

    Good luck with doctor and getting BFP this month. Strange isn't it about the connection between pcos and low milk supply, have read so much about it and heard so many women say the same thing but lactaction consultants I spoke to when having difficulty with Bf seem to have no idea and still insisted there was no link.

    I've heard lots of people say that pcos makes breast feeding difficult. Not enough of the right hormones. With DS my milk still hadn't come in on day 4, I was still in hospital as I'd had a CS. Luckily for me, I had a nurse who was knowledgable in the area, so she had me expressing every hour until my milk finally arrived, then she advised routine expressing to keep my supply going for the first 6 weeks. I pumped at least twice a day between feeds and my supply finally came up to where it needed to be. My boy was 4 weeks prem, so a sleepy feeder, which made it more difficult. In the end, I fed him for 12 months. I doubt I would've gotten past the first few weeks without the advice I got from that nurse!

    So Heyside, is letrozole taken in the same way clomid is? Sorry, I'm trying to keep up with everyone, still working out who is doing what... So last time did you do FSH and this time trying letrozole to try and avoid having to do FSH? I hope it works for you! I just did a quick google - it looks like a good alternative to clomid.

    oops, never mind... Just went back and saw that you got UTD with cycle 2 of FSH, I remember now

    Wow never heard that pcos can affect milk supply? !? It won't even leave pur milk alone! ! Lol

    Well I definitely defied that. I've got severe pcos like more than 40 cysts on one of my ovaries and I had heaps of milk. Heaps of colostrum too. I actually had too much milk. Had to express sometimes just to relieve them cause my son was getting to much. It took 1 yr for my milk to dry up!

    Not saying this to show off but just to show that it can be wrong.

    Violethope - That's great that you found someone who supported you with breast feeding and it worked for you. I had more issues than my low supply and it just wasn't to be for me but it wasn't until I had my difficulties that I read about the link with PCOS. Yes I had two rounds of FSH injections last time before falling pregnant with DD, Ob thought it would be a good idea to try letrozole this time just to see if it worked for me but also as he is away some of this month so didn't want to start injections as wants to be here to oversee them. I think it's worth a try who knows it may work. I will take it from cycle day 3 through to 7 so yes the same as clomid.

    ProudMumma - I have heard of women with PCOS also having the same issue with milk as you ProudMumma so definitely doesn't effect everyone, suppose that's the strange thing about PCOS everyone seems to be effected with different symptoms, I don't have any issues with hair growth or insulin resistance but my main issue is acne.

    Did the whole lactation specialist visits, pumping, meds, etc. Was incredibly tired and still only got 100mL tops all day if I didn't do anything. Of course once we had another child, I had even less as I couldn't just tell them to look after themselves.

    You lucky thing! Ironically, even 6 months after our last mc I am still lactating a small amount of colostrum from one side (also known as 'the good side').

    It's due to the inconsistencies that it usually isn't talked about as being a potential issue. Pregnancy often evens out the hormones for a time - perhaps yours still stayed high and good for a long time - who knows! Probably something they need to do more research into.
