Hi Anon,

The real cause of PCOS is unknown. But, the chance for pregnancy with fertility treatments for PCOS is very good. The great majority of women with polycystic ovarian syndrome will be able to have a baby with treatment.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Yes, it is possible to get pregnant even thou you have PCOS. Because PCOS can affect your menstrual cycles by preventing ovulation, sometimes medications are required to help your body ovulate. Regular ovulation is key in helping you get pregnant. Knowing when you ovulate, either naturally or with medication, can help you time intercourse or intrauterine insemination

thanks daisy for the info.but still, i have my period but not in a same cycle.the longest it can drag like 32days after 1st day period of the past month.and the shortest was 26days.is that means i cannot get pregnant at all even if with medication like clomid?is PCOS close related with hormone which is unstable?often hear that PCOS are most likely caused by unstable hormone.so if that's true, do you have an advice to share it with me so that i can make my hormone balance & stable again?
many thanks
