Hi All,

I was just wondering if anyone has got pregnant through IVF/ICSI/IUI who has PCOS, or naturally, I've had it since I was 24 yrs & prob alot before that, we have been TTC for 6 long years & have had lots of NHS treatment, & have been going Private to The Essex Fertility Centre for 18 months & had 3 IUI's (BFN) & 1 IVF (April 04 BFN), I really need to be assured Ladies do eventually conceive with PCOS?

Thanx for listening.

Love Lisa xxx :)

hi Lisa
i conceived after being told at 24 i needed DE (i have pcos) sadly i m/c at 13 weeks but it was a natural pg.
my sil has two boys already (no TX) and has just been diagnosed with pcos.
there are several books about pcos and fertility have you read/got any??
as i have told my sil (she wants another baby!) pcos makes it difficult to conceive but not impossible.
hope Ive helped ???

Hi Dizzi,

Thankyou, yeah, I have all the PCOS & lots of fertility books, & I know alot about  PCOS, I know it's difficult to conceive but all the posts I read on other sites of all ladies with DH sperm prob or just not ovulating, I don't seem to read postives about PCOS & conceiving, it always happens to others!!! I suppose I want hope! :'(

Hi Lisa,

I was diagnosed with PCOS in 1996, and after having clomid I gave birth to my daughter in 1998.  We have been trying for our second for four years now,.  I have had 2 iui's but BFN.  I am now on Metformin and I am now starting to ovulate on my own, and we are hopefully going to try another IUI later in year.

Hi Lisa

I have severe PCOS and i conceived with my 2nd lot of IVF. My little boy is now 3. Yes it is hard as we had been trying for 21 years before i fell pregnant.
I took Metformin with my 3rd cycle and we got an astounding 24 eggs. Only had 7 & 4 with the other 2 goes. But i was told to stop taking it when i had ET. I got pregnant But m/c at 5wks 3 days. I still wonder if i had carried on taking it whether the pregnancy would have continued but we will never know.

Good luck, wishing you lots of success.

Love Kim xxx

Thanks Girls for replying, Its kind of give me hope, I don't not really, I am thinking of asking my Private clinic to give me a blood test to check my FSH?, I really can't remember this being done when I was having NHS treatment. Anyone know what FSH level it's suppose to be & if it is high what happens?

Sorry, I looked at my Zita West book & now know, FSH should be under 8-10. So will have to have a blood test done then
