I'm 27 years old married (2 year) girl. I m dignosed with pcos. I gained wait. 68 kg(5 ft 1 inch-hight). Can i get pregnant naturally?

Possibly: One of the more common symptoms of pcos is lack of ovulation. This lack of ovulation leads to the infertility problems. However, every now and then, but very unpredictable, an egg may mature and you ovulate. If this does happen, you can get pregnant "naturally". More often, though, is that you need treatment which may include things like weight loss and/or medications that promote ovulation. ...Read more

Possibly: Someone with PCOS is more likely to ovulate later that average so your pain may be related to ovulation. However, ovulation typically does not cause any symptoms at all. If you keep having pain, you should see a doctor. Otherwise, if you don't have a period by 28 days after 8/25, take a pregnancy test. Good luck ...Read more

Can PCOS be temporary? Years ago had acne, slight weight gain, hair on neck. Now, slim and no acne, had a normal pregnancy, reg periods. went away?

Yes: PCOS is linked to insulin resistance, which is usually but not always caused by being overweight and worsened by being more overweight. There is a confusing, but beginning to be understood interplay between insulin, LH and FSH, as well as other hormones. When you lose weight and the insulin resistance improves and so does the PCOS. If resolved with diet/exercise you are doing great! Keep it up. ...Read more

Will Medroxyprogesterone increase my pregnancy rate with PCOS? If not what will? I'm ready to have a child and I want to know what is best?

Will Medroxyprogesterone increase my pregnancy rate with PCOS? If not what will? I'm ready to have a child and I want to know what is best?

Not alone: Medroxyprogesterone all by itself won't increase your chances of getting pregnant with PCOS. If your PCOS is keeping you from ovulating, you may need to be on a medication to help you ovulate such as Clomid. This is a prescription medication and needs to be prescribed by a doctor. Best wishes! ...Read more

I have pcos along with pelvic scar tissue. I have been pregnant 7 times over a course of 14 years with only 1 living child. What could be causing this?

I have pcos along with pelvic scar tissue. I have been pregnant 7 times over a course of 14 years with only 1 living child. What could be causing this?

Many possible causes: Were your other 6 pregnancies miscarriages or tubal pregnancies? You have more chance of another success than multiple miscarriages with no child. With 2 or more miscarriages we look for low egg supply, uterine problems like polyps or fibroids, abnormal antibodies, blood clotting disorders, hormonal problems, & genetic tests if needed. See a reproductive endocrinology/ infertility (rei) specialist. ...Read more

I am having sensitive nipples in the morning from past two days, is it a symptom of early pregnancy. I have irregular periods due to pcos?

The : The important thing about when to start an ovulation predictor kit is to make sure you start it before you expect to ovulate. The number of days from when you ovulate to when your period starts is very fixed. It is not longer than 14 days. The number of days from when you start your period to when you ovulate can be variable. The best way to figure out when to start is to take your shortest cycle length and subtract 16 days. For example, if your cycle varies between 32 and 36 days, you should subtract 16 from 32 to get 16. You would start testing on cycle day 16 with the first day being the day of an actual flow (not spotting). If your cycles are always 36 days then you would start on cycle day 20. Hope this helps! good luck! ...Read more
