If PCOS..: Most diabetic women can conceive just fine, unless they have pcos (polycystic ovarian syndrome) in which case metformin and weight loss can help with conception. Maintain strict control of your blood sugar for at least 3-6 months before attempting pregnancy and take Folic Acid at 1-5 mg daily throughout your reproductive life. Make sure your thyroid function is normal before getting pregnant).
