I went to the doctor and right away she could tell that i had PCOS; my labia is a darker color , my facial hair, acne & i have high testosterone. my doctor put me on birth control (nuvaring) so it would balance my hormones and give me more estrogen. I get my period every month for 5 days every 29 days its like clock work with or without birth control i've stopped using birth control and tried to get pregnant, i've tried for a year but i was unsuccessful. could it be that im not ovulating or is not having enough estrogen in my body be the reason why i can't

Wishing you the best in conceiving and managing your AAE / PCOS!
