Almost a third of all infertility problems in women are PCOS or polycystic ovary syndrome-related, making it one of the most prevalent ovulatory problems among women of reproductive age. While the common belief is that PCOS patients cannot conceive, the truth is, the condition is completely treatable and almost every woman with this problem can successfully become pregnant. A lot of women improve their fertility through modest weight loss and lifestyle changes. Others find success after opting for basic infertility medications and treatments. If additional assistance is required to conceive, IVF or in vitro fertilization can yield positive results for PCOS patients. Based on the results of the initial testing, fertility doctors may prescribe ovulation induction medications to PCOS patients along with intrauterine insemination or timed intercourse. However, for these treatments to take effect, Fallopian tubes amd sperm count must be normal. The usual success rate of IUI treatment is almost 15 to 25 percent for each cycle. The individual success rate is greatly impacted by the age of the patient.
