Hormones and menstrual cycle
One of the most serious complications brought about by PCOS is infertility. As there is abnormality in a woman’s monthly period, the chances of ovulation are lesser compared to normal situations. PCOS therefore threatens its victims to riskier and lesser chances of successful pregnancies. Even with all the threats, Infertility caused by PCOS is treatable and can be easily managed through lifestyle changes, such as diet, excercise and losing weight, that can lead towards conception in women with PCOS.
Usually, pregnancy among PCOS – affected women depends on the severity and level of their illness, alongside the type of treatment being received and condition of health and wellness. Even with all the threats, pregnancies for women with PCOS are still possible. It may not be as convenient, easy and smooth – sailing as normal cases of childbearing, but it does not burn all the avenues for possible procreation.

My OBGYN suggested fertility treatments, meds to induce ovulation, me to my dietician, etc., Fast fwd I’m now 33 and I’ve been feeling weird lately so I took a home pregnancy test and it was positive. I beleive, that my control on the diet and regular workouts really made this happen.
Hi I’m 35 and was diagnosed with PCOS in Feb 2016 by my fertility endocrinologist. I’m not morbid obese but I was overweight. I started with diet plan and signed up to a gym, exercised 3 times a week and lost 15 pounds in 2-3 months. I thought it would never happen and it did. In May 2017, I had a healthy 8lb 11oz baby girl. My doctor was great she was honest and she kept me encouraged the whole time.
