Why is getting pregnant so difficult if your period is irregular? Many of our PCOS Community members are trying to conceive and that can be very difficult if you have an irregular period.

Take care everyone!

because your body isn't releasing an egg and ur insulin levels could be messed up. it took my husband and i 1 year to conceive and that's when i was on 500mg of metformin for 3 months. we are trying to conceive again and i've been on metformin 1000mg for almost a year and nothing yet. but there's more to it like stress and weight and that can all make it so that u have an irregular period.
