"Poly : "poly cystic ovaries syndrome" (pcos) is a general term used to describe a collection of symptoms and medical signs. One of the most common findings is that a woman does not release an egg (ovulate) each month. When a woman does not ovulate, she usually does not have a period. A period occurs when a woman ovulates but does not get pregnant. The severity of pcos varies widely. Some people never ovulate. Some people ovulate several times a year. When a person ovulates normally, she has about a 20% chance of getting pregnant if she is less than 35 years of age. What this all means is that there is a chance that you are pregnant, but the odds are that you probably are not. The best thing to do is to check a home pregnancy test. Whether it is positive or negative, it is probably time for you to see your ob/gyn. If you are pregnant it is time. If you are not pregnant, you have a history of pcos and are trying to get pregnant. You most likely will need simple treatments in the form of pills to get pregnant. Good luck! ...Read more
