toxoplasmosis, rubella, chlamydia, vdrl, hiv, karyotypes, antiphospholipid syndrome, anti-cardiolipin antibodies, fasting glucose, activated protein c resistance(apc resistance vacl top il), plasma homocysteine, fibrinogen, anti-thyroid peroxidase, anti-thyroglobulin, plasminogen, total hemolytic, prothrombin rate, antithrombin, tca – la, drvvt, immunoglobulin a,g,m,c4 complement, hemoglobin electrophoresis, anti-cardiolipin antibodies, anti-beta 2-glycoprotein i, anti-transglutaminase, anti-dna, tebg, dheas, 17 alpha-hydroxyprogesterone....

Yes in many cases IVF does help . Especially when there are ovulation issues or other immune or thrombotic issues associated with the PCOS.
Just so you understand many PCOS patients get pregnant on their own or with IUI, its only when those fail that IVF may resolve the situation again as long as all of the other associated conditions are diagnosed and treated. See my video on this site.
