I have PCOS and got pg... I had to move from clomid to injectables though... I was about 270 lbs when I did all this and hadn't had a nomal period for 3 years.. I lost 90lbs doing low carb and exercise and my period is back to normal... I then got preg on my own the first month trying... there is hope...

i have pcos and am almost 26 weeks pregnant.  I did metformin, femara, hcg trigger and prometrium.  (I also took prenatal vitamin, extra folic acid and a baby aspirin because I had two previous miscarriages.)  They monitored the follicle growth by u/s.  At 6 days past ovulation I don't think I felt anything.  By about 13 dpo I was sure I was about to get my period  then after testing negative it finally turned positive (to my surprise - I had just about given up).  Are you getting good size follicles by day 13 or so with clomid??  If so you are probably doing everything you can right now.  If not you could ask you doc about femara.  It can work in women who don't ovulate well with clomid.  I would at least try it before moving on to injectibles since they are so expensive.  I have never had normal periods - the last two years they ranged from 33 to 54 days in length.  When I was younger they were even longer.  And I am only maybe 10 pounds over ideal weight (more now since I am preg) and was thinner in my younger years (I am 37y now). Best of luck - it is hard but you are doing what you can for now before moving onto more intense treatments.

I got pregnant this past month, my first round of clomid.  However it ended this last week in miscarriage @ 5 weeks.  It can be done though!

I have never had normal periods but the doctors always said it was because I run so much, I am about 117lbs so I'm not overweight, so I can't reverse it that way. I don't know its just really hard...everyone else around me is getting pregnant and now since people know we;ve been trying for so long they feel bad for us and its just a big mess. Thank you for all your info and best of luck to you all.
