Re: PCOS and breastfeeding
I was diagnosed with PCOS and not only did not have any under-supply problems -- I had over supply trouble! I have been breastfeeding without any under supply issues, for almost 18 months.
I'm sure there are many individual variations in hormone levels, as well as other circumstances which may interfere with milk production. One of the most certain things that can interfere, however, is stress. So my advice is to continue to gain as much knowledge here as you can before your baby arrives, but don't go into breastfeeding anticipating problems. If they arise, you will deal with them -- that's sort of a fundamental lesson in parenting, IMO -- you can spend lots of time worrying about things that may never happen, or you can spend lots of time educating yourself and living in the present, so that you are able to handle things in the most appropriate way for your circumstances as they arise.
Congratulations, and I wish you all the best!

Those who say it can't be done should not interrupt the person doing it.
