I have never posted anything like this. My and my husband have been trying to get pregnant for about 1.5 years. I just recently found that I have PCOS. I go for about 6-7 months without a period and I never know when it is going to occur. It is heartbreaking. Sometimes I feel like I am a failure even though there is nothing I can do about the problem. I am trying to remain positive but the doctors have told me that it is going to be near impossible for me to get pregnant. I feel like I have been on an emotional roller coaster because we got married around the same time as three of our friends and one of them is on their 4th child and others have had no problem getting pregnant. When we talk they ask me when we are going to get started and I really don't know what to say. I want to be excited for them and I don't want them to feel bad for us. I have tried Provera to help me regulate but it works for one cycle and then I go back to waiting. I have been told about Clomid but someone told me that it rarely works for woman with PCOS. Is this true? I need some tips or opinions or something!View Thread
