Hi, I was officiallydiagnosed with PCOS about 2 years ago. I had been on BC pills since I was 16 to help regulate my period and help with severe cramps. My husband and I have been TTC for 7 months and I know normally it is recommended to wait a year of trying before seeing a doctor about fertility. I am wondering, since I have been diagnosed with PCOS if seeing a doctor sooner would be advised. I track my cycle and use ovulation tests every month, but to no avail. We haven't told any of our families we are trying since we don't want the constant questioning so now I am just trying to get some insight and support.
Hi! If you were my patient, and had PCOS with an irregular cycle, I wouldn't hesitate to start a medication such as Clomid, possibly combined with Metformin right away. If your periods are regular and your opks suggest that you are ovulating each month, you may not need any medication, maybe just more time. Going in to discuss this issue with your doctor would NOT be a waste of time. Good luck! Dr B
