If you are insulin-resistant and have been diagnosed with PCOS, will you ever be able to conceive or does it just depend?

It just depends - some are able to conceive without too many problems and others (like me) are still battling away. Its not to say you are infertile but you might just need a bit of help getting there.

All is not lost, I have a 3yr old son, despite having been diagnosed with PCOS 10 years ago. I am on Glucophage 500mg 3x per day, and used folic acid when trying to fall pregnant. Get yourself a good gyane, and pray, you will succeed.

You can conceive, but will need medication to help with this.

If you are insulin resistant, you will need glucophage. If you do not ovulate with this, drugs such as Clomid can be used to stimulate ovulation.

You can get Folic Acid over the counter,you don' t need a script.
I think you should put a post on Infertility Support and ask for someone there to recommend you to a gynae in the Eastgate Area.
The women on that site are great.
