I have PCOS and have had a blood clot due to taking birth control. What are the non-hormone options for fertility treatments? What are my odds of getting pregnant?

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Most women with PCOS, trying to become pregnant,  need to take medication to help them ovulate. If medications don't help you become pregnant, an outpatient surgery called laparoscopic ovarian drilling is an option for some women with PCOS. Your doctor can help you determine if you're a candidate for this type of surgery.

Here are some resources for you,
