If you have polycystic Ovary Syndrome can you still get pregnant.?

If you have polycystic Ovary Syndrome can you still get pregnant.?

i also have it my dr says yes but some cant good luck girl if you ever wanna chat e mail me.
yes, but it is definitely harder. Go talk to a gyno about it.
Yes you can. I got pregnant with my second son after 6 months on clomid. He is 9 now and I am six months pregnant with my new husband after trying 5 years with my ex. The doctors said I probably would never get pregnant again but to my shock and suprise I did without knowing until I was almost 8 weeks.
Yes, you can - I am living proof. You will want to start by visiting an OB-GYN and talking to him/her about how to best increase your odds of conceiving. Learn how to chart your basal body temperature (www.tcoyf.com) and use an ovulation predictor kit. Make sure to ask your OB about how a drug called Metformin can help regulate the cycles of a PCOS patient - it was my miracle drug!

Also check out the online community www.soulcysters.com - it's a great resource for those who have PCOS, with great message boards.

Best of luck to you.
I guess no, but consult a gynaec.
Yes. Some women get pregnant with no problems whatsoever. PCOS affects different women differently. Some have serious infertility, and some seem to be normally fertile.
Polycystic ovaries and infertility
A major cause of infertility in women is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) affection around 25 percent of women. This is the cause of about 75 percent of ovulation problems. In PCOS, the ovaries are bigger than normal with an abnormally large number of small follicles, which are sacs of fluid that grow around the eggs.

The follicles don't mature which means that ovulation can't happen and eggs are rarely released for fertilisation. This has a profound effect on a woman's fertility. Women who suffer from PCOS have scanty periods or, in some cases, none at all. They may also suffer from obesity, bad skin and excess hair.

Becoming pregnant again
If tests show you're not ovulating, you may be offered drug treatment alone, ovarian stimulatio, ovarian diathermy or IVF, depending on several factors including your medical history, weight, age, length of your fertility problems and the method that proved successful for you last time.

If you're overweight, you may be asked to lose weight before you are offered treatment, as this is often all that's needed to cure PCOS and these treatments are more effective in women whose weight falls within normal limits. Treatments you may be offered inclue:

Drug treatment:
Clomiphene citrate is the drug most commonly used in women with PCOS and results in ovulation in around 80 percent of women, with a pregnancy rate of about 50 percent after six months of treatment. If this doesn't work for you, you may be offered injectible hormones to stimulate ovulation. You'll have blood tests and scans to check your ovaries aren't being over-stimulated.

Ovarian diathermy:
Also known as 'ovarian drilling', this is a surgical treatment that triggers ovulation in up to 80 percent of women with PCOS who have not responded to medication or weight loss. After treatment 60 to 80 percent of wommen go on to become pregnant within a year.

The chance of pregnancy is higher in women who have had fertility poblems for less than three years, as well as those with higher levels of luteinising hormone (LH). The operation is performed under a light general anaesthetic via a laparoscopy and an electric current or laser, which is used to 'drill' small holes into the ovaries. This can either restore ovulation or make the ovaries more sensitive to drugtreatment.

The main risk associated with the proedure is accidental damage to internal organs or blood vessels, and of course, the usual risks associated with general anaesthesia.
