Is pregnancy with PCOS high risk ? Do PCOS patients get pregnant ?

 PCOS (or pcod) is a common hormonal disorder that disrupts the menstrual cycle and is one of the most common causes of female infertility. However, pregnancy with PCOS is not impossible, and with the right methods, your chances may be very good.

Women with PCOS are prone to some complications during pregnancy such as gestational diabetes, and it is important to note that pregnant women with PCOS are also at risk of developing hypertensive disorders during pregnancy, also a woman with PCOS may be more likely to develop preeclampsia (High blood pressure and harm to another organ system -fetus- are some symptoms of this pregnancy problem).

In the following lines, you will read four ways that women with PCOS can improve their chances of conceiving:

How can you get pregnant if you have PCOS?

1. Do not smoke

Smoking increases the chance to develop PCOS Cancer, so any woman with PCOS should stop smoking because the cycle will be very irregular.

According to new research, older women who smoke have higher levels of sex hormones than nonsmoking women, increasing their risk of breast cancer, diabetes, and other disorders.

Smoking has long been recognized as a risk factor for a variety of chronic diseases.

2. Experiment with different medications

Medicines prescribed by a doctor are often successful in treating PCOS and increasing pregnancy success rates.

3. IVF experimentation

If medications do not work, there is the option of intrauterine insemination or in vitro fertilization. IVF is an assisted reproductive procedure in which some of a woman’s eggs are taken from her ovaries, fertilized with sperm in a laboratory, and then transferred to her uterus.

Because women with PCOS have such a large number of eggs and follicles, modern fertility treatments are usually very successful and can often be very simple.

One 2016 study found that women with PCOS have an equal chance of conceiving through IVF as women without PCOS, but factors such as age and weight will affect the chances of conceiving through IVF.

4. Getting rid of excess weight

Since ovulation is rare in women with PCOS, and since you cannot conceive if you do not ovulate, this ends up being the main barrier to fertility. So the very important step is to lose weight. Research has shown that losing 6% of total body weight helps some women start ovulating again.

Therapeutic nutrition is very important for a woman with polycystic ovaries. There is a need to prepare a healthy diet based on proteins and reduce the intake of carbohydrates to force the body to use fat for energy. This system reduces the hormone insulin and increases the rate of improvement in the ovaries.

The Keto diet is the best solution in this case. I recommend you start a keto diet for 8 weeks.
