Trying to get pregnant with pcos. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for two years now and have gone through treatments from metformin to clomid (clomiphene). Is there anything else i can do?

IUI or IVF: Based on your age you should consider a more aggressive approach to fertility treatment since Clomid (clomiphene) alone failed to lead to conception. A limited number of intrauterine insemination (iui) cycles may be an option. However, in vitro fertilization (ivf) may be a better option.
