Can it increase my chances

could taking estradiol 1mg tab for about a week or two help increase my chances of getting pregnant?
due to the fact that i have PCOS and have trouble getting pregnant anyway.

Acupuncture will greatly increase your chances.  My doc also had me take DHEA vitamin supplement.  I don't know about estradiol?   A low-carb, non dairy, non caffeine diet as well will help.  I'm hearing pineapple (fresh, no canned) is fabulous for implantation.

I don't have PCOS myself, so I'm definitely no expert, but unless you have problems with a thin lining, I don't think estradiol (estrogen) will help. Basically, estrogen is produced naturally as the follicle(s) grow every month...but it won't actually help them grow, if that makes sense. Why are you considering taking estrogen?

Hi,

for PCOS many women are successfully treated with Metformin.  Please ask your doctor about it.

Low carb diet and exercise will also definitely help.
