Tasha, I think your first thing to do is to find a Dr that acknowledges PCOS and knows how to manage it. Let him/her run all the relevant tests to establish hormone levels, insulin resitance, whether you are ovulating on your own etc and get onto the right treatment for that if need be.

If you are battling with insulin resistance I would also suggest getting onto a low GI eating plan as this really does help with it. It does not have to be a major diet, a way of life that you are comfortable with that incorporates Low GI carbs.

In my case the first gynae I went to never tested anything. I did not ovulate (he did test that) and I never had a period so he said here is a pack of Provera (forces menstruation) and then we will put you onto Clomid (fertility drug) for 3 cycles and come back and see me if nothing happens.

DAH, when I finally had all the tests done with a REAL Dr, it showed that my Progesterone levels were almost non existant which would make it next to impossible for me to fall pregnant and even if by some chance I did, I would miscarry in early stages, so no amount of clomid would have actually done anything. Wasted money, emotions and all that goes with it.

The other thing I would suggest (which we have not done yet but MUST) is to get your husband tested. Let them do a sperm analysis and just check that all is okay there. Often woman go through all the test and it is the husband who actually has a few problems of his own.

Rule out the basics before you start spending fortunes and putting yourself through all the tests.

Things will come right. PCOS just needs to be managed correctly. It is not infertility but just makes things a little harder for us!
