Some women also experience hair growth / loss, acne, weight gain or depression. Because PCOS affects your menstrual cycles and ovulation, many women with this disorder suffer from female factor infertility as well.

PCOS: Frequently Asked Questions
How does PCOS cause infertility?
PCOS can cause infertility because it affects a woman’s hormone levels and can manifest in disruption of her normal menstrual cycle. This means that ovulation becomes non-existent or irregular due to elevated testosterone or underdeveloped follicles. When the ovaries stop cycling eggs from a woman’s egg reserve into her fallopian tubes, it becomes difficult or impossible for sperm to fertilize an egg. Infertility is one possible side effect of PCOS, but it is also a symptom which can be overcome with treatment.
What are my chances of getting pregnant with PCOS?
PCOS can make getting pregnant difficult, but not always impossible. Your chances of getting pregnant improve the earlier you seek treatment. PCOS has no cure, but infertility due to PCOS can often be overcome through hormone therapy, medication or IVF. Contact RBA in greater Atlanta, GA for a fertility consultation if PCOS is preventing you from conceiving.
