: Hi everyone! I have PCOS and am going to go to an infertility specialist. I would like to know of the success rates of women with PCOS who get pregnant and the medications required to get pregant. I am very optomistic. Thanks for your help.
I also had PCOS for years without knowing it. I took clomid and did become PG several times. Unfortunely, I also miscarried several times. I'm not sure if the PCOS and miscarriages were related or not, but one doctor seemed to indicate that there was a connection. I understand though that it can now be corrected with a drug. It seems it has something to do with a lacking hormone that prepares the lining of the uterus so the egg can firmly attach itself. Make sense doesn't it, since PCOS is also caused by a hormone imbalance!
I did manage to have one beautiful baby boy who is now 14, but I do still grieve for my other babies and wish I could have had more. But it wasn't in God's plan.
One more tip, if you are not having regular periods, talk with your doctor. Not having regular periods can lead to uterine cancer over a long period of time. I ended up having some pre-cancerous cells and had to have a hysterectomy.
Good luck and just hang in there. With patience and prayer I'm sure you will be successful. God Bless You.
