User avatar Hello,
You should get your PCOS treated if you are not already. There are medications to help. Also, if you are overweight you will improve your chances of pregnancy by losing some. This will also help insure a healthy pregnancy when it does happen so use the time you are waiting to good advantage by getting your body ready for pregnancy. Eat right, take a good multi-vitamin, exercise and treat the underlying problem. I would recommend a preconception health visit with an OB/GYN to see what areas of your health can be improved. Then, if you get the go-ahead, you might benefit from an ovulation stimulating medication such as Clomid. Women with PCOS often benefit from this along with their Metformin (or other drugs).

Good luck with your efforts.
