What are your chances of getting pregnant with PCOS?

Dr. Sankar Das Mahapatra

Infertility Specialist
PCOS is a common endocrinal disorder affecting one out of every 10 Indian women of reproductive age. PCOS is usually associated with a variety of fertility issues in women. But females affected by this condition often have a similar number of children as those without the disorder. If you are trying to conceive with PCOS, the pregnancy success rate is 30 percent. Unfortunately, 70 percent of women experience difficulties when attempting to get pregnant. Polycystic ovary syndrome leads to numerous difficulties, so it is wise for women to begin earlier in life. This gives women sufficient time to try a wide range of fertility treatment options. The moment you experience two out of three criteria – irregular periods, 20 or more follicles, and increased androgen levels – schedule an appointment with your doctor for a check-up. This will help them diagnose PCOS in its earliest stages and seek the required treatment. However, please bear in mind that the condition is often hard to diagnose in ladies who are on contraceptive pills since the medication changes their hormonal levels. If you require an accurate diagnosis of the problem, you must stop taking the pill three months beforehand and rely on another form of contraception in the meantime.
