      I got pregnant with PCOS. It wasn't planned or anything. Never have been able to conceive and carry to term sunce. I can say that when I dropped like 4 clothing sizes, my cyst were gone.

      I can't the metformin. Causes me horrible diarrhea that never works itself out. 6months of it I gave up.

      Ok so from what I have been told by my doctor is the weight gain is what causes more symptoms. I've been told if I lose 5% my fertility will come back.

      Im not an expert because they haven't done that for me yet but they will when i want to start trying. Im 27 and married we have been married a year and i havent gotten pregnant. But im also on the pill to help when my period cause i wont have one without the hormones. I would wait cause your fertility can always change
