Hi i was diagnosed with PCOS about 1yr ago. Been TTC for 2-3 years, i was referred to a gyne and we had general chat and i went back 6months later, not much help as same info was said and no medication or anythig was given i was just told if i dont concieve in a year go back to the doctors!! Mind i dont think my age much of a help as im only 20 they don't seem to want to help me out much?! I was just wondering if your doctors can prescribe you clomid? As i would like to try it but my gyne seems to be useless so i dont want to be referred again!!! And as of my age can i ask for a dye test to be made? I have had an internal scan if they would pick up any other problems from that?? Its just stressful as anyone knows with PCOS i just need more info as i dont know a lot ?? Thanks for reading guys x

Hi NHS guidelines state assisted conception for those aged over 23 if I remember correctly (used to be 23-39 but not up to 42) so perhaps the gynae appeared uselesss as they cannot treat with medication due to your age on the NHS.

Try going back and asking for metformin - it is used for several different PCOS symptoms as well as to help conception. I had fertility treatment for ages but within 2 weeks on metformin I was pregnant. I'm not ttc now but was offered metformin to help with other PCOS symptoms (hairy!) so it's worth a try grin

Yeah hoophopes i thought my age wasnt on my side, thanks for that! queenofknickers is your doctor able to give you that? I also have the hairy side effect which is pretty depressing?!
