Can we even get pregnant?
em0121 posted:
My husband and I recently decided to try and get pregnant. The only problem is that I have PCOS and he has type 1 diabetes. From all that I have read bout diabetes and male fertility, plus what PCOS can do for my fertility, I'm not even sure if we can get pregnant. I really do not want to take fertility medications and IVF if something I would not even consider as a last resort. Should we even try?

Yes you should try. There are medications out there that are not as harsh as the ones used for IVF. I have PCOS and DH and I have been trying for 9 years. I was taking clomid and I lost 40lbs. I am now 31 weeks. There are a lot of different things you can try that don't include IVF, but sometimes that is the only way. Good luck.
