Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Q. Does PCOS Affect Pregnancy Or Can I Carry On As Normal?

Dec 30, 2017

Ans. The biggest problem with PCOS women is their inability to get pregnant because they don’t ovulate as frequently as normal women do. But even if they do conceive, their chances of carrying the baby on to full term are, unfortunately, less than normal.

Miscarriage rates are high in pregnancies of PCOS women. This is due to a variety of reasons. One of them is insulin resistance (IR). IR leads to elevated levels of insulin. This can lead to a failure of the placenta to supply nutrients to the developing baby and remove toxic wastes. This can result in miscarriage. High level of a hormone called luteinizing hormone (LH) in PCOS women is another reason for a higher risk of miscarriages in them.
