    Fellow hubbers, I am 27, married and now considering starting a family. I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2005, I luckily don't suffer many PCOS symptoms and have menstrual cycles that range from 27-30 days each month.

    I'm interested to know whether any of you out there have managed to have a conceive a child naturally with this condition or whether I should cut my losses and go straight for medical intervention?

    Your comments are welcome!

      You are still very young.  Give the natural way a shot - about a year - see what happens.  You have nothing to loose and it is plenty of fun! hehehe

    Thanks you for the advice. The reason I'm trying to start young is due to the PCOS. Conceiving is often difficult and I want to give myself the best chance possible.

    My sister in law suffers with this. She was trying for 8 years to get pregnant and she eventually went to have the cysts removed. She got pregnant just a few months later.

    She said that the treatment is so minor that it's worth going through with it.

    But there is no harm in trying first. Good luck!

      Thanks for this. Oddly enough - I don't have the cysts, just the hormone imbalance. Apparently it is possible to just have the syndrome without ever developing cysts.
