You may not care as much ; have an increased appetite, neither which is beneficial to achieve pregnancy.

I had an operative laparoscopy and ovarian cyst drilling in april. Fertility was a problem (pcos) how long it takes to get pregnant?
Safe; sometimes used: Progesterone or artificial versions (progestins) can be safely used to induce a period for women with pcos who have very few periods (less than 4 a year) or no periods.

Progesterone can also be given for low Progesterone levels in the 2nd half of a cycle, or to support an early pregnancy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
