PCOS, depression and now trying to fall pregnant
Hi,

I have PCOS, and while I have been on the pill I have been ok. I stopped the pill a while ago (6 months) in order to try and fall pregnant. I have been feeling depressed on and off during this time - which I believe is a symptom of PCOS. However, it is now beginning to wear me down and I'm wondering if anti-depressants might help. Can you take them if you are trying to fall pregnant? is there any herbal remedies that would be better?


Thanks

Youn should not start antidepressants without consulting a doctor.
