I was diagnosed with PCOS since the age of 16yrs. I been married to my husband for 7yrs.and for the past 2yrs.we been trying to conceive but no success. Do you think the IVM treatment can help my current situation?

For those who don't know, IVM

For those who don't know, IVM is where immature eggs are collected from unstimulated or minimally stimulated ovaries under ultrasound scan guidance. The immature eggs are then matured in the laboratory for 24-48 hours using culture medium with added small quantities of hormones. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) is used for fertilization of the matured eggs. The resulting embryos are transferred to the woman's womb.

IVM might help, but not as a line of first defense. Women with PCOS are often successful with a combo of clomid and metformin. I wouldn't move on to IVM, which can be very expensive, without getting a second opinion. Make sure you see someone who specializes in PCOS.

Good news - women with PCOS often are more successful getting pregnant in their 30s than they were in their 20s!
