What percentages of women with PCOS fall pregnant without resorting to IVF? What else can I do to increase my chances of falling pregnant? I know this may seem a bit silly but have you heard of anyone going to a hypnotist to help with motivation to exercise and to eat healthier? There are days when I am so motivated but other days I just “give up”. Sorry I know that is a bit of weird question … I promise I’m not loopy LOL!!! I just need a bit of help mentally! Also, the doctor said that my husband my have a serious problem with his sperm and this was before he even looked at the semen analysis!! My husbands libido isn’t the same as it was and he had 3 hernia operations when he was very young and he does work with some metals at work but not often … I know that could effect fertility … but do you think the hernia operations could have effected his sperm count?? Thanks!!!Friday, March 6th, 2009
It would be very difficult to estimate a figure indicating as to what percentage of patients with PCOS will need ART in order to conceive, as there are PCOS patients that conceive spontaneously without any help at all.
Hypnotherapy has been around for a while and does seem to have merit for the right indication.
As to making a statement that one has a serious sperm problem or any kind of problem at all without having a proper semen analysis to base your statement upon is beyond me as well.
