PCOS and egg sharing?

Hello Professor Brain, I'm aged 28 years old and have PCOS. We have been trying for a baby for six years, have been on Clomid but this hasn't done anything. I have been pregnant once and lost it at 15 weeks... that was over two years ago and still nothing. Would IVF be good for us? And could I still egg share if I have PCOS?

Please note that all the answers we give are on a generic basis only, as we cannot provide more in-depth answers without access to your medical history. If you need a more detailed response, tailored to you, we would recommend a consultation with one of our Fertility Specialists for more comprehensive medical advice.

If you have PCOS I would suggest you seek advice from a fertility expert.  There are appropriate treatments available to help you conceive such as Induction of Ovulation or IVF. Egg sharing is another possibility and having PCOS does not necessarily exclude you from the programme.
