What to take when you have PCOS

I have PCOS and i am on a quarter tablet twice a day of Bromocriptin (Parlodel), a full tablet of Metformin (Glucophage), a full tablet of Folic Acid 150 mg of Clomid, and a multi vitamin. And my husband is on Ami-Tex to thin out his sperm. Is anyone else on any of these drugs to help conceave? Im interested in seeing what other people are taking who have PCOS.

Re: What to take when you have PCOS

I was on aldectone for awhile, but had to stop as we are already having problems treating a more severe condition and decided just to leave it till later.

How about your diet? If you are missing this part, it will really help you!

Re: What to take when you have PCOS

I was on Metformin(full tablet) to conceive but I also was put on a diet(1500 calories) and exercise regime(mostly walking and a bit of light weight lifting) and lost some weight and managed to get pregnant. My fertility specialist explained to me that any extra weight we carry causes an overproduction of testosterone which can impair ovulation.My husband and I after 2 years decided to take a few months off from all the calendar watching, temperture taking,etc. associated with trying to get pregnant and I got pregnant the first month we stopped trying. I know you've probably heard this a million times( I know I did) but sometimes just relaxing can help nature take it's course. I also took a multi vitamin and eltroxin for my thyroid issue.
