Can pcos cause poor egg quality?I've had 1 full-term pregnancy and 1 missed m/c due to chromosomal abnormalities. Thanks in advance for any insight.

In brief: Shouldn't

The quality of the eggs is most directly related to their age - and they are as old as you are.
As you age the possibility of genetic anomalies with each pregnancy increases. If you have had a pregnancy with a genetic anomaly, the the likelihood of a recurrence is also higher.

In brief: PCOS

Polycystic ovaries.
Enlarged ovaries containing numerous small cysts. To be diagnosed with pcos, you must also have abnormal menstrual cycles or signs of androgen excess.Some women with polycystic ovaries may not have pcos, while a few women with the condition have ovaries that appear normal. Pcos often cause fertility problems, but i'm not aware about association with chromosomal abnormalities.
