Thought I'd share my story with my fellow PCOS-ers! Things worked out so well for us, and I just wanted to share to say that even if you have PCOS, pregnancy is very much still on the cards for you
My cycles during my teenage years were very irregular, anything from 30-45 days, with very very heavy bleeding. I also developed acne in my early 20s. More because of the acne than anything else, I went on Dianette, which cleared up my skin and regularised my cycles. I had no other symptoms of PCOS, hair or weight wasn't an issue for me. And I took the pill until 2009 when my husband and I decided to ttc. When I came off the pill my cycles became erratic again, 38 - 52 days. My GP said I more than likely had PCOS and referred me to a fertility clinic. The waiting list to see the consultant was over 6 months so I decided to go privately to Napro. We had great success with them.
Initially they put me on Femara (similar drug to Clomid) and metformin to get me ovulating. After doing follicle tracking it seemed that this wasn't enough to get the egg to rupture, so a hcg injection was introduced. This worked, and the first month I did this I got pregnant. Sadly we lost that little bean. 3 cycles later I was pregnant again, and had a beautiful little boy 9 months later.
While I was on maternity leave I decided to make an appointment to see Napro again, as their waiting lists had grown much longer in the interim. I made an appointment for the end of March, and I thought with any luck that I might be pregnant some time during this year. I got pregnant without meds on 6th of January, and I got such a shock! My GP said that it often happens to women with PCOS, once they have a pregnancy that it "resets" their system and they go on to conceive naturally. I had 2 cycles after DS was borm, both exactly 34 days, ovulating on day 22 both times.
Anyway, that's my story! Best of luck on your ttc journeys!
