    Can you get pregnat without having a period?
    An_251396 posted:
    I have PCOS and sometimes go without a period for a year or more. I was just wondering if this makes me infertile indefinitely or do we still need to use condems to avoid getting pregnant? Later down the road will I be able to get pregnant if I want more kids? I have not had a period for 1.5 years.

    Yes, you still need to use condoms. Since you ovulate before you have your period, it's possible to get pregnant without having a period.

    You may need medical assistance to get pregnant but it's possible to get pregnant with PCOS.
