General query.

Hello. Was wondering if anyone had trouble conceiving natural if you opted to have Ivf and if so how many attempts did it take you? Was there anything you did differently to help it along the way.

I have polycystic ovaries and I managed to conceive naturally even tho I was told when I was 15 as I didn't get periods I would never become pregnant. This is classed as my 4th pregnancy although I have one child and pregnant with my second. Good luck to you x
Wow that's weird but amazing congrats and hope the pregnancy goes smoothly.

I had troubles conceiving my first daughter (she is now 8 years old). I took clomid to make me ovulate and it worked the first month
