if you are overweight losing weight will help with hormone levels.  are you avoiding all meds or just clomid?

I have read that multi vitamins are really good for your diet and excersise regime, perhaps a trip to the naturapath or local herbal medicines, pretty much everything seems good, zinc, mag, Vit c, vit D, Vit B... just depends on your diet alot as well, no refined carbs, have you been dieting and excersing?

There are books about "pcos diets" which are more of lifestyle changes than diets, but they say it can increase fertility by regulating hormones.  worth a try.  good luck i hope that's all you will need.

I have read about those diets as well... some seem to have alot to do with the insulin resistance - hence hard to loose weight - look up The Natural Diet for PCOS and Intfertility  see this link ... http://www.ovarian-cysts-pcos.com/pcos-book-res.html
