Newbie- all kinds of stuff... need opinions please!!

Ok so I've been ttc #2 for two years now... 5 months after DD was born. I'm 32 and DH will be 36 next month. I have pcos and we went through 3 rounds of heavy fertility meds and iui treatments in 2009 before I was physically, mentally and financially over it. Went to see an acupuncturist in 2011 and bam! We got pregnant after my first treatment. I had not had a period in 9 months at that point too. So we don't really know what we did to get our little miracle. Soooo this time I went to the acupuncturist for 4 months at the end of last year... didn't happen this time like the last, but I did notice that my cycles were getting better. I went from having an 85 day cycle to 23, 40 and 39 days so far. I met with my doctor at the end of April and she had me do a ton of blood work, ultrasound, and DH had to do a sperm analysis. She put me on metformin and told me to get an opk. Plan was she'd put me on Clomid when all the results came back. Monday I went in and she tells me I no longer have pcos. What?!? I've been dealing with that for 10 years!! All my levels were in the normal range and back in 2004 they were all extremely high. I still have cysts on my ovaries so it's prob pco but whatever. So then she drops the bomb. DH's count is low (23 m) and motility is only 6.2...she's sending him for a redo this Friday and won't give me Clomid yet. Meanwhile, I'm doing the opk and I get a high fertile indicator on Sun (cd31) Mon & tues. so we bd Sun afternoon, rested Mon and bd tues morning. Then today I got the positive peak indicator and we bd this morning again. All 3 times we used preseed. I had a pain in my lower right ovary yesterday and my nipples hurt today so I'm pretty sure I o'd. Also I woke up yesterday with tons of ewcm. I'm going nuts trying to figure out what we're going to do next since it looks like DH has issues too. I don't think I'm going to make it thru the ttw! Is it possible for pcos to completely go away? Does anyone else have pcos/pco issues with DH issues as well? Thanks!!

My older sister had severe pcos. She tried many things except for the ivf and iui. A fertility specialist told her that she would never get pregnant on her own. So she adopted a son. Two years later surprise pregnancy and two years later again another surprise pregnancy. She still has pcos. Her OB attributed both pregnancies to major weight loss, but who knows.
