How to improve pregnancy rates for women with PCOS?

I have been diagnosed PCOS, but the doctor told me it is very minor. I'm having a very regular period (monthly) but I still could not get pregnant after 5 years. Last year, I experienced a miscarriage. It was a natural pregnancy. I exercise consistently and my daily meal is normal. Are there any other ways I can do to improve my pregnancy chances?

Answer from the Doctor
Miscarriage is not an indication of how your future pregnancy is going to be. Although women with PCOS have a higher risk of experiencing miscarriages, women without PCOS also experience miscarriages as well. However, you have been trying for 5 years and it has been quite a while. Perhaps, it's time for you to see a gynaecologist to rule out any other possible causes of your fertility issues. One of the important things that we have to make sure of is that you are ovulating every month. Some women with PCOS do ovulate every month. The fact that you are having a period every month suggests that. You should get checked by a gynaecologist to make sure there are no other problems, such as problems with your fallopian tubes. These are all the investigations which will help doctors to diagnose your condition. Sometimes, you might actually have more than one problem which can affect your pregnancy rates. It is great that you are exercising consistently and eating well. You have to make sure you are maintaining a healthy BMI. If you are a smoker or drinker, now maybe is the best time for you to stop doing that. You can start taking folic acid and vitamin D. Again, I would recommend you to go and see a doctor to make sure that you are not missing out on other problems.
