I'm new to this site but not to trying to conceive, I have PCOS and loved the site I was on with the other women who were TTC with PCOS... but the site gave me hope and let me down all at the same time, I would feel hope when someone got lucky and became pregnant after years of trying but then I would feel like there was no hope when it came to those who tried everything and still had no luck.

PCOS and Ovulation

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I was just wondering if you have to have a period every month to conceive and or ovulate?

I was diagnosed with PCOS years ago and so my periods are very irregular. I don't even know for sure if I am even ovulating. How can I find out if I am ovulating when I do have my period?

Thank you,
Misty

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I just turned 30. I was diagnosed with PCOS approximately 1 1/2 yr ago. We have been trying for about a year to get pregnant but with no success.

What are my options for fertility drugs? And what is my next step? My next doctor's apt is not until June.

QUESTION

Dear Fitness Expert,
I haven't been diagnosed with PCOS, but it not only runs in the family, but I have seen my cysts through sonogram. I started working out about a month ago. After the first two days of exercising I started to get a sharp pain on the left side of my abdomen. I thought that I might be pregnant since I was about two weeks late. But, my HPT came up negative.

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I am a young Sero-negative Arthropathy suffer and my husband and I are trying to fall pregnant. We are trying to find out as much as we can about the effects this disease has on the chances of falling pregnant.

Just to make this even more difficult when I was 16, my gynecologist said I had polycystic ovaries even though they found no cysts when I had ultrasounds. I was put on the pill and had been taking it up until July this year.

We have had no luck yet in conceiving so what can we do to increase the chances?
