My name is Emma, I am 24, live at the Gold Coast, Queensland and have PCOS.
I am newly engaged. We have not really tried for a baby, but have not used contraception or been careful for over a year. I really have no idea where to start and what to do to give us the best chance. Any help, suggestions or personal experiences will be greatly appreciated.
I have really been considering going to a Naturopath or someone similar but am not sure if that is the right first step. Should I go to a doctor first and see what they have to say?
Having PCOS makes me kind of scared of how hard this might become...I have read so many sad stories online about it all....(and good ones too, but its only human to worry)
I look forward to speaking with you all and hopefully reading some amazing stories about your successes and triumphs.

Hi, and welcome to bubhub
As a first step, I would suggest that both you and your partner go to your GP and get some basic tests.
You to have a blood test on day 21 of your cycle (day 1 is the first day of your period) to see if you have ovulated, and your DP to have a sperm analysis.
These can be ordered by your GP, and will give you a very basic start to see if there are issues to address.
After than - depends on what they find
Best of luck

You're still very young - so it's great you're starting now. It means that if it does take time, you've GOT the time :-)
