Yes, it depends on: the cause of the Addisons and whether it has been properly treated.

Could their be a problem with fertility me and my boyfriend has been trying to conceive another baby since june

Could their be a problem with fertility me and my boyfriend has been trying to conceive another baby since june

Typically : Typically a diagnosis of infertility is not made until a couple has been unable to conceive after one year of unprotected intercourse. You are about 6 months shy of a diagnosis of infertility. My advice is for you to buy an ovulation prediction kit and follow the detailed instructions. Also make sure you have had your annual pap, and if you are not doing so already take a daily prenatal vitamin, and try to relax and maintain a stress free life. Best of luck. ...Read more

Try the internet: and google "free fertility services" or "free ivf". There are many charitable foundations that pay - not all of - but towards the costs of artificial reproductive techniques.

PCOS treatment: Clomid (clomiphene) is commonly in patients with pcos when you are trying to get pregnant. The goal is to increase the chance or number of eggs ovulated. Since you can't tell if or when you are ovulating, taking the Clomid (clomiphene) may make the cycle more regular.
