Can PCOS Sufferers Get Pregnant?
Hi, I once went to the doctor after 3 months I did not menstruate, and I was married, in the ultrasound check there was a thickening in the uterus, but my egg size was not normal, I was given 3 kinds of drugs namely I forgot what the name was because the wrapper was at home the medicine has finished, the first to provoke menstruation taken after eating 3 times a day for 5 days, the second medicine after the second day of menstruation drink once a day for 5 days to be fertile, and the third drug given for 30 days to drink from the beginning before I menstruate he said to improve egg size.
Hello Agatha, thank you for asking.
Based on your explanation, it means you have gotten a diagnosis of PCOS from a doctor, is that so? As you might already know, PCOS is characterized by menstrual cycle disorders, the presence of multiple cysts in the ovary, and elevated levels of androgen hormones (checked by analysis of blood samples). People with PCOS, in addition to experiencing menstrual disorders, can also experience changes in body hair growth, acne and oily face, loss of head hair, weight gain, and psychological disorders. Indeed PCOS can reduce a person's ability to get pregnant. However, that doesn't mean you can't get pregnant at all.
As long as you routinely control and go to an obstetrician, your doctor will be able to monitor the progress of your disease and determine the appropriate dosage and type of therapy. If your PCOS is controlled, then of course you have the chance to get pregnant. Treatment is generally with drugs containing synthetic hormones. Hormone drugs are not drugs that can be sold freely and should be consumed according to doctor's indications and recommendations. You are not advised to buy hormone drugs without a prescription, because improper use will actually change your hormonal balance. Therefore, you should consult with your treating doctor first. If indeed you are encouraged to continue treatment, then you start taking medication again.
Your actions to lose weight to normal are also good. Being overweight has become a factor in decreasing the chance of pregnancy. In addition, it helps you check the presence or absence of TORCH infection, so that it can be tackled immediately. The infection can also complicate pregnancy. Your husband also does not hurt to undergo sperm testing. The quantity and quality of sperm also play an important role in determining the success of a pregnancy. Today, more and more men are experiencing sperm quality and quantity disorders, so it doesn't hurt that your husband is also being examined.
Thus my explanation, hopefully useful. Regards.
