I have pcos and had no problem getting pregnant. I was seeing a fertility specialist and everything about 8 months before ttc. He put me on birth control and metformin, and I lost about 25 pounds (I'm still very overweight though) so I definitely prepared my body for it. But when it was go time, I got pregnant on the third month of trying, which might have even been sooner if my husband didn't have to travel for work so much. Also I specifically asked the fertility specialist if when I did become pregnant the risk goes up due to pcos and he said no; the only thing to put me at a higher risk was my weight.
most women with pcos can conceive somehow. A lot of them use Clomid to do it, which really isn't that expensive, and a lot of insurance plans will cover it anyway.
tha's kind of heartbreaking the doctor who told you that was so pessimistic about it. If having a baby is something you truly want, don't give up on your dream.
