    Smile Getting pregnant with PCOS

    Hi everyone I'm new to this and was just wanting to talk to people with the same problem as myself and to hear other people's stories My name is Aimee, I'm 23 years old and have been trying to get pregnant for the last year and a bit. I was diagnosed with PCOS last week, and also have an under active thyroid which are both making it very difficult to get pregnant. My doctor has put me on metaformin and thyroxine which I have just started taking today! I'm staying positive and am hopeful to fall pregnant in the next couple of months. Has anyone had any success by taking these medications or have a similar story? Thank you

    Hi Aimee, I have pcos and a 3 yr old it took a year to conceive. I use metformin mainly for weight loss. I haven't seen drastic results with it.
    Good luck on your ttc journey

    Hi Hun, from memory there is a PCOS section, I think you can find it under the conception and fertility section. I have PCOS and was diagnosed a few years ago, my OB wanted us to try for at least 8mths before prescribing any meds and well me being me was too impatient for that lol a friend recommended a Chinese medicine man that assisted her on her ttc (trying to conceive) journey, she too had PCOS and was given his info through her IVF clinic, I went along and started treatment that included drinking herbal teas (yucky) and acupuncture, after 3mths worth of visits 1-2 sessions per week I was pregnant successfully (a chemical pregnancy the month before), I am now 9weeks pregnant again, we did it with no assistance at all and conceived the first month of trying.

    I wish you all the best Hun and I hope you get that BFP (big fat positive) soon.

    Thank you for all the helpful info and congratulations! if I have no Luck in 3 months on the medication I might look into the accupuncture, I've heard there is a guy in Adelaide who has a great success rate from it! Thanks again
