    I was diagnosed with PCOS about a year ago. I've had irregular periods all my life and it was a relief in some sort to pinpoint the actual reason. I'm recently married and my husband and I are trying to conceive. Should we try charting and having sex during my ovulation without medication or should we go to my OB and see what he suggests?

    Hi there, 

    It's up to you. There's no harm in charting for a few months and seeing if you can conceive naturally before opting for more advanced treatments - but since you already know you have PCOS, your OB might be able to help you get pregnant faster. So, it's your call :) If there's anything we can help you with on our end, let me know!

    I was first diognosed with PCOS when in was 23 I was having very irregular and heavy periods. A decision was finally made by my Gyno to insert a Merina this was the best decision I made and had many years of bliss. At age 37 and recently married my husband and I decided to travel down the road to conceive. My Gyn removed the Merina and I am back where I started all those years ago. My Gyn has suggested that I start charting my periods to see how I am going. I have been charting for a while now and still confused with what I see. My Gyn has suggested Metformin as this drug is safe on a growing baby if I do get pregnant.

    I am not sure how long I can keep going. With each period I have had since the removal of the Merina has been painful and Extremely messy I do not venture far from home. Any help I can get to help get pregnant quickly is much appreciated.

    Hi there,

    I'm so sorry to hear about all of the trouble you've been through :/ We're here to help! Charting your temperatures and cervical fluid will let you know if and when you ovulate. Remember that the best time to have sex to conceive is just before ovulation. Here are some articles to get you started:

    I have Pcos and I want to prevent pregnancy ( I have a beautiful daughter after off the pill completely on accident) I hate the pill and want to try charting but I'm afraid that it's challenging and not very accurate for Pcos . I haven't found a lot of information on this topic, any information?
