Can Women with PCOS Be Pregnant?

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common reasons for female infertility, which affects millions of women.

Motherhood Fertility Centre, one of the leading fertility centres in Hyderabad, provides a number of effective fertility treatments for PCOS patients, with in vitro fertilisation (IVF) being the most popular among these treatments.

This is due to the efficiency of female factor infertility treatments, such as PCOS, which has allowed Motherhood Fertility Centre to be considered as the best fertility centre in Hyderabad.

Some women who go for PCOS infertility treatment are able to conceive through the use of fertility drugs and some lifestyle changes. However, most women can’t cure it through medication, and instead have to opt for IVF treatment. The best infertility specialists in Hyderabad work here at Motherhood Fertility Centre to research the best strategies for this.

What is PCOS?

PCOS is a general condition in which the ovaries show the presence of cysts that create a balloon-shaped sac. Usually the ovaries help to balance hormones within the body, but women suffering from PCOS complain about menstrual problems, excess hair growth and weight gain as a result of hormone imbalance.

Symptoms of PCOS

  • Problems during periods, such as pain, heavy bleeding, irregular periods and, sometimes, the absence of periods
  • Excessive hair growth on the body, known as hirsutism
  • Sudden weight gain
  • Problems with infertility, such as difficulties in conceiving
  • Dark colored patches on the skin
  • Acne and pimples on the face

Treatment for PCOS

The main treatment for female infertility is IVF.

Women with PCOS should first consult with doctors at the IVF centre in Hyderabad. Infertility specialists will then propose injectable fertility drugs to stimulate the ovaries so that they can provide a large quantity mature eggs. The matured eggs are retrieved from the ovaries, and are placed together with sperm into petri dishes.

Typically, high doses of fertility medication is required to force the ovaries to mature the eggs, but with the help of in vitro maturation (IVM), this dosage can be lowered and IVF treatment can be conducted.

After fertilisation, the eggs will divide and grow after three to five days, and one or two are then transferred into the uterus. This process is called embryo transfer. After two weeks, infertility specialists will conduct a pregnancy test to identify the results of the treatment.

Apart from IVF treatment, Motherhood Fertility Centre also offers Blastocyst Culture Transfer, Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) treatment and stimulated Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) treatment.
