See your doctor: Pco can make it difficult to become pregnant, but there are treatments. See your doctor for a full work up regarding your fertility history. Other causes of decreased fertility will need to be ruled out to obtain optimal results. If pco is determined, weight loss has been found to help regulate cycles. There are also medications, like metformin and clomid, (clomiphene) that should be taken under supervision.

Clomid (clomiphene): Pcos stands for poly-cystic ovarian syndrome. To make an accurate diagnosis, dhea-s and free testosterone should be assessed, not just the appearance of the ovaries. These patients are not ovulating on a regular basis and hence the prefix 'poly' which means 'many' in latin and 'cystic' for cysts. Clomid (clomiphene) can enhance your chances of ovulating; there is a 10-15% chance of having twins however.

Herbals don't help: Treatment for pcos includes: healthy eating habits, weight loss ( even 5% can bring on ovulation), regular exercise and no smoking. There is no cure for pcos but the above actions will lower androgen levels and improve symptoms. If these fail to being on ovulation, sometimes metformin and Clomid (clomiphene) are prescribed. No evidence that the femaprin and fertilaid work. I hope that helps. Talk to your dr.

Possibly not: One may possibly ovulate after being treated with metformin and not necessarily having a previous menstrual cycle. This doesn't happen often though.
