PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) can be associated with various symptoms, including irregular periods and difficulties getting pregnant. Women with PCOS take longer to get pregnant than other women. This can be because they have irregular periods which means that they don’t ovulate every month. Also, being overweight may also reduce fertility and can contribute to women with PCOS taking longer to conceive.
Although women with PCOS have more fertility problems than other women, they need reliable contraception to avoid unplanned pregnancy as having PCOS doesn’t mean that a woman can never conceive. There are chances of miscarriages too once you are pregnant as women suffering from PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) are three times more likely to miscarry in initial months during pregnancy as compared to women who do not have PCOS.
Living a healthier lifestyle with a better diet, regular exercise, no smoking, less stress, and control of diabetes and other medical conditions should improve your fertility odds.
