PCOS : Pcos can be a tricky diagnosis since it can overlap and be confused with other conditions. In 2003 a consensus workshop sponsored by two organizations, eshre/asrm, indicated that to be diagnosed with pcos, patients needed to meet 2 out of 3 criteria including irregular or no ovulation (oligo ovulation and/or anovulation) excess androgen hormones (by symptoms or blood tests) and/or polycystic ovaries (by gynecologic ultrasound). Based on these criteria it was determined that approximately 30% of patients diagnosed with pcos will have regular menses, although not always with ovulation. Women with pcos do have problems conceiving mainly from this lack of ovulation. So if you can do testing for ovulation with an ovulation predictor kit or temperature charts and they look normal, then you are probably ok! keep in mind that there are many reasons why people cannot get pregnant including the partner, tubes being blocked, etc. That can also impact fertility.

Are irregular periods a sign of infertility?

In a way, yes: Irregular periods can happen for a number of reasons. Generally speaking, if you miss a period that means a mid cycle ovulation did not take place which in turn means no chance for the egg to be fertilized by a sperm. Check with your doctor if further testing is needed to ensure your ovaries are in good shape and that all the hormones necessary to regulate your cycle are intact. Diary will help. ...Read more
