It seems no one has addressed the immune issues related to your PCOS , I would also suspect that the "ectopics" we most likely intrauterine early losses. You need the proper immune workup and this is very treatable. I would be happy to assist you with this. Feel free to call my office if you are local come in if not you can set up a free 10 min consult so we can review your case.
