    Question Am I the only one?

    Hi there!

    My name is Sammy and I am 28 years old.

    I hope I am not the only one but I have joined because my partner and I plan to get married and start trying late next year so I am reading all I can about conceiving/pregnancy/babies and planning...

    I also have PCOS so I know it will be difficult to conceive but I am trying to research what the best things to do right now in preparation would be.

    Thanks for reading

    I know they say to wait a year before seeing a specialist but I knew I had PCOS and would have difficulty in falling pregnant I think we started in July 2015 by Jan 2016 we were still TTC I spoke to my doctor and may have told her a little white lie that we were trying longer than what we actually were. She referred me to a FS end of Jan and she did some test was put on metaformin and clomid in Feb and got my BFP in March.. I was very impatient I probably could have waited the year but I'm glad I didn't as it probably wouldn't have happened with out medical intervention..

    I also have pcos and suggest you track your chart with a basal body thermometer to see if you ovulate.

    Default Am I the only one?

    Good luck with your journey, I agree with the suggestion about starting to track your cycle and temping and OPK's to see if you are ovulating regularly. If you are, your chances of falling pregnant will be as good as any person without pcos.
    I have pcos and fell on my first month off birth control when we were not officially trying but not preventing after doctors scared me saying to be prepared for it to take at least 18 months to fall. I then had trouble TTC baby 2 but for non-pcos related issues.
    Best piece of advice would be getting to know your cycle, take prenatal vitamins and try to get in a healthy weight range if you aren't already. Best wishes

    Thank you all for your advice.
    I have just started in metformin and I am gradually increasing my dose at the moment while dealing with all the lovely side effects. I haven't lost any weight yet even while eating healthy and exercising for 6 months straight. It's a bit depressing but I am hoping that the metformin will be the kick that my body needs.
    I am on the implanon as well so I have been debating whether to get that out sooner rather then later.
