I've heard that many women with PCOS who successfully had a baby #1 (regardless whether with help of clomid, metformin, etc.) had much easier time TTC#2. Are you one of those women? Was it true for you? Can you share your story?

Every part of your repro tract produces some type of chemical meant to prod whatever is next in line to do its job. PCOS is what happens when something gets off track. Pregnancy forces your body to rest reproductively (fertility wise) and gives everything a chance to resolve. Depending on why the PCOS in the first place you could find pregnancy is a reset button if you are one of the rare few. For most though this reset is only temporary and the sooner you start trying the more success you are likely to have. You also have a better chance if you stay away from synthetic hormones (HBC), eat a diabetic diet, continue with meds if you were given something for IR or thyroid, in short do your best to support return of normal cycling.
