I believe i have PCOS as we have been trying to conceive for a little more than 3 years now with no success. All symptoms point to PCOS. I have no medical insurance and no way to get it. I can not afford to see a doctor in any way. I have been trying to do all i can to improve my chances of conception. I have lost around 47 lbs. although that still leaves me at 300 lbs. I had not had a period at all until i stopped breast feeding my now almost 4 year old son. Even after they started again they were very irregular, some times 2 or 3 months apart. I do believe my efforts are helping but can't be sure. I do now usually get my period once a month but they have not been any where close to the same dates, until this month when my period fell on the 23rd. Last month it fell on the 20th, which i am hoping means all i am dong is working. Is there any way to know for sure?View Thread
