24 year old trying to conceive

I recently turned 24 and I was diagnosed with pcos last year after only having a period a couple of times a year.

I my obgyn prescribed prometrium to get my cycles started which is now very regular after a couple of rounds. He also prescribed metformin 500mg bid and I was prescribed clomid 50mg days 5-9 for two months with no luck.

I went last month for a check up and he prescribed clomid days 4-10 50mg after I had been doing ovulation tests and it came back positive a couple of days.

No luck in pregnancy yet but will continue to try. I also take a B-complex vitamin and folic acid.

Ed. notes: Maybe it's time to consider trying something other than drugs?

PCOS can be effectively managed and your odds of becoming pregnant can be improved if you take a very comprehensive approach. You actually have more control over this disorder than you may now think. However, you will need to take a more comprehensive approach that goes beyond depending on this drug or that drug to make your problems go away or achieve a pregnancy.

1) Educate yourself as to what causes PCOS so that you can make intelligent decisions for dealing with it. Read books, visit websites, talk to others who are dealing with issues similar to yours. Get second opinions from other doctors. Become knowledgeable about the various conventional and natural treatment options that are available.

2) A healthy diet plays an absolutely crucial role in managing the symptoms of PCOS, including infertility, acne, weight, hair loss, male-pattern hair growth, and depression. A healthy diet will also greatly reduce your risk of developing diabetes and heart disease.

A good place to get diet advice is from The Natural Diet Solution for PCOS and Infertility .

3) Regular exercise is vital, especially if you have a weight issue. Daily exercise, when combined with the correct diet, can be as effective as metformin (Glucophage), but without its side effects.

4) Selected nutritional supplements such as vitex or d-pinitol can be useful in helping you to normalize your hormones.
