These therapies aren’t always appropriate, especially if you are trying to conceive. There are other types of medication that can be prescribed to help increase ovulation if you’re trying to conceive. If these treatments of PCOS aren’t successful, you may need to consider a more aggressive intervention for fertility, most likely in vitro fertilization.
Lifestyle changes with diet and exercise are also successful ways to manage PCOS. Limiting processed foods, adding healthy fats, and lean meats to your diet will help lower glucose levels and improve the body’s use of insulin.
Whatever your needs, our fertility specialists can advise you along the way. Navigating PCOS and fertility treatments can feel complicated, and our providers are here to help you navigate through your fertility journey.
After conceiving, women with PCOS are at risk of developing certain complications such as gestational diabetes, pre-term delivery, and pre-eclampsia, and this can be exacerbated by obesity. The Endocrine Society recommends assessment of BMI, blood pressure and oral glucose tolerance prior to attempts at conceiving.
While PCOS is normally associated with infertility, not all women who have PCOS are infertile. Most women suffering from PCOS can achieve successful pregnancies and deliveries.
