Getting Pregnant with PCOS
It would seem with all of the teen pregnancy out there that getting pregnant
is a very simple matter. Everyone knows how it happens, but there are
some people that don't understand why it is not happening to them. They
are married with a good life, but for some reason a baby is not in the
cards at the moment. When the time comes, most couples assume they will
have an easy time of it. It is not always that simple. Medical issues can
get in the way. Getting pregnant with PCOS can be hard, but it is very
Getting pregnant with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) is not always a
problem. Some women with this condition get pregnant with ease and never
know that they have PCOS. Others have the more problematic symptoms of
this condition like weight gain, acne, facial hair, insulin resistance, dark
spots on the back of the neck or on the feet, thinning hair, and irregular
or non-existent periods. Most women with PCOS fall somewhere in the
middle without all of the symptoms. However, no matter what your
symptoms, the chances of having a hard time getting pregnant are higher
than with other women.
The biggest problem with getting pregnant with PCOS is that some women
have irregular periods. This means that they are not ovulating, ovulate late,
or they do so sporadically. Some only do it a few times a year, if it all.
That, as you can imagine, makes it harder to get pregnant. Instead of
twelve chances a year to conceive, they have three or four chances at
most. On top of that, because they are not regular, they have no idea
when or if ovulation occurs and they often miss their fertile window. It can
be very frustrating.
Those trying to get pregnant with PCOS have a few options. They should
first make sure they do have PCOS by talking to their doctor about the
proper tests to confirm the condition. They can then talk to their doctor
about medications and procedures that can make it easier for them to get
pregnant. The male in the equation may want to be tested for any
problems like low motility or sperm count too, just to get that out of the
way. A plan of action can then be put in place, often with good results.
Knowing what the problem is can be half of the battle.
There are some women that have problems getting pregnant with PCOS,
only to give up on their dream of having a baby. I was one of those
people. Much to my surprise, I had a healthy son after numerous
miscarriages and giving up on the idea of a baby altogether. I was 36 at
the time, which means it is never too late. PCOS is a problem, but it
does not have to mean the end of your dream of having a family. Listen
to your doctor, take care of your health and your weight, and give it time.
Never give up and never stop trying.
