What is PCOS?
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder that occurs in women of reproductive age. PCOS symptoms can include prolonged, infrequent menstrual periods, high male hormone levels called androgens. PCOS is diagnosed as pre-diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Often this disorder can make the ovaries develop follicles that stop the release of eggs and they prevent the women from getting pregnant. However, the exact cause of this condition is not known and the disorder can be treated. Fortunately, getting the treatment early can prevent long-term complications such as diabetes or heart disease.

How PCOS affects fertility?
PCOS can leave a negative impact on women’s fertility because they do not ovulate regularly or release eggs. If a woman wishes to conceive, then the first line of treatment is to make changes in the lifestyle which includes losing weight and increasing exercise regime.
Increasing the odds of getting pregnant
Even after making lifestyle changes, some women can experience infrequent ovulation. In such cases, women can choose IVF to increase the chances of conception. During the initial stages, women should take drugs to stimulate ovulation.
In some cases, women with PCOS do not get the results with medications or it does not result in ovulation. In this case, the patient may receive fertility injections which help the body to release an egg. The medications contain hormones that send signals to the ovaries to release the egg.
Having a healthy pregnancy
During IVF treatment, the woman is given a fertility injection to increase the egg count. Once enough eggs are produced they will be retrieved from the ovaries. After that, they are kept in a controlled environment with sperm so that they can get fertilized. The sperm and egg meet each other which results in embryo development.
Once the embryo is formed, the embryologist will keep a close watch on it to make sure it is healthy. After that, embryos are transferred back to the women’s reproductive tract and this will increase the chances of conception.
Once the treatment is done, you need to wait for 2 weeks to check the results. During this time, the fertility doctor will keep a close watch on your health to make sure your body is responding to the treatment.
