Trying to concieve with PCOS

Hi ladies,

I have just turned 31 years old and my husband and I have been trying to conceive for nearly a year now with no success. I just found out last week that I have PCOS and I am trying very hard to stay positive and fight it as best as I can. I have been tracking ovulation through monitoring my BBT and doing ovulation tests. My cycles range from anything between 31-51 days. I do seem to be ovulating as I am getting sustained temperature rises and I have been able to detect LH surges. I have just started making changes to my diet and lifestyle (my weight is not affected by PCOS as I am quite slim, my main issues are acne, anxiety and irregular periods). Through going gluten free and cutting down on sugar I have just had a 31 day cycle for the first time all year - not sure if it was a coincidence. Still not pregnant though.

If anyone has any tips, words of wisdom or stories of hope then please send them his way.

I have PCOS and now pregnant with baby #3 i have a 3yr old and a 15month old and before my 3yr old i got told it would be unlikely id conceive naturally! (On one of my ovarian scans the doctor said my ovaries looked like fuzzy balls because there were so many cysts!).. just try not to stress too much because that can delay things, just track your cycles, find out when your ovulating, have sex and hope for the best, i no its hard when you want a baby so bad and u get a bfn every month but stay positive. Its good you have improved your diet that will help the pcos. Wishing you the best of luck, i hope you fall pregnant very soon!. Im proof that pcos doesn't mean no babies! Just go with the flo and it will happen im sure xx
