All the pills I am taking. I have pcos. Tried femara, surgery, dye test. Been trying for 4 years and I am DESPERATE! Are all these safe to take together? Anything I should add to my cocktail of pills? I have lost 40 lbs in the past 2 months and am working onlosing 40 more. Any thoughts?

If you were my patient, the first thing I would do is congratulate you on you weight loss!  I would also tell you that you don't need to gain tons of weight in pregnancy--studies have shown that in overweight moms 10lbs is enough weight for a healthy baby.  Next thing I would do is refer you for IVF.  I would strongly encourage you to go before your egg count begins to diminish.
Finally, I would advise you to stop everything that you are taking that is not a prescription drug and begin a prenatal vitamin with folic acid.  I am not opposed to herbal and otc supplements, but you will have to stop them all anyway when you conceive--why not simplfy now?
Good luck!
