    It really all depends.
    I'm very lucky, I have PCOS with multiple follicles on both and large cysts as well as having endo.
    Was told I'd need fertility treatment and fell naturally both pregnancies

    If you do have it best thing I can suggest is a low GI diet and regular exercise, especially if you are insulin resistant as well (PCOS can cause this). That can help your chances.

    Best of luck!

    Thank you so much.

    I am heavier than i should be so will be adressing that asap! I am currently not.ovulating so see what happens after the test results are back. Just had a little panic imagining the worst.

    pcos all depends on the type you have and how bad it is. Heaps of pcos girls fall pregnant naturally and have no trouble at all.

    I you have trouble loosing weight, you might have insulin resistance and they usually treat you with a drug called metformin.

    If that doesn't make you ovulate, you can use clomid which a lot of PCOS girls use to induce ovulation. If your DP has good swimmers, you might only need a little intervention if any to fall preggers.

    It really does depend on the type. I am heavier than I should be too, and am having a really hard time getting the weight off.
    We'd been trying for about 12mths for bub number 2. When I went to my GP to find out what was wrong. She found I had pcos, referred us to a specialist, I had to wait a month to see him, during which time I found out I was pregnant!

    Everyone is so different... And with fertility there are SO many factors at play.

    As an example, I have Polycistic ovaries and do not ovulate or get periods often at all (about 4 times yearly when not on the pill). I do not have weight issues, nor excess hair issues but have always suffered adult acne. I am considered to have Polycistic ovaries but NOT the syndrome as I don't have enough symptoms for the syndrome.

    My son was conceived naturally by fluke.

    Keep your chin up, eat healthy, exercise and look after yourself in general :-)
