Hi, I am a young woman of the age 23 who has been diagnosed with (PolyCystic) or PCOS and I am not on medication for it, so I am not getting my periods, so how is it possible with women that have pcos to get pregnant??? IT just doesnt make sense to me, I amsorry. But I have been having fatigue, heartburn, constipation, vomiting and lightheadness the last week or so and its not the flu and its not gallbladder or gall stones and I just had an upper endoscopy and colonstopy done too and all came back negative.

You can definitely get pregnant if you have PCOS. I got pregnant but it turned out to be an ectopic pregnancy. Just telling you to be careful because just because you have PCOS doesn't mean you can't conceive. We're all individuals and its a case by case basis.

People with PCOS can concieve, so birth control is a necessity if one wishes to not become pregnant.

PCOS women can ovulate, but they often may not have a period to show for it.

I also have PCOS. There are many options out there for you to conceive!! Usually they will start you on Metformin first to regulate your hormones and blood sugar. Then, you can try Clomid; it helps people ovulate. If that does not work, you can go see a specialist in infertility. They can give you more options, such as: laparoscopic surgery (that is how I got pregnant!!), IUI's, and eventually invitro.

I would ask your OB where to begin!! Good luck, it is certainly possible!!

I too have been diagnosed with PCOS. (unfortunately). I have had 3 pregnancies . The first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. The second pregnancy was rough and ended in pre-term labor at about 7.5 months along (but the outcome was a healthy baby). The thrid pregnancy just ended and it turned out to be an ectopic pregnancy that ruptured my falopian tube. (as if PCOS didnt make it hard enough to become pregnant i am now working with only one falopian tube). My question now is "Can PCOS cause an ectopic pregnancy?" I have none of the risk factors for an ectopic pregnancy. I have researched a lot and cant find any links between the two. Does anyone have an answer for me?

To the guest:

Hi, I'm silvia and I also have PCOS. Also endometriosis, past fibroids as well. I had a m/c end of June-first pg and was a molar pg. I'm an RN as well. When you have an ectopid pg, what happenes is that the fertilized egg plants itself on the wall of the falopian tube instead of continuing through the falloipan tube to plant itself on the uterine wall. Ectopic pg's can be very painful and can be life threatening as well. They just occur-noone knows why.

I also take metformin (generic for glucophage) given usually for type 2 diabetics, but medicine has found that it helps with PCOS, syndrome X which they usually call it as well. And yes, it helps you ovulate. You can have your period, but it doesn't mean you have ovulated. The egg has to come from the follicle in the ovary but sometimes that doesn't happen, but you still shed the uterine lining. And sometimes, some of us don't get our period.

I HIGHLY recommend seeing a REPRODUCTIVE ENDOCRINOLOGIST. I ONLY go to my RE for my PCOS, he's done my laproscopic surgery to remove my fibroid(s) and still treats my PCOS. They also make it a point to check to see if your fallopian tubes are both patent (open), and check your hormones-if one is out of wack, this could be the culprit in not getting pg.

Good luck and god bless

I have PCOS too, and while on Metformin AND Yasmin I conceived two "accidental" babies who turned out to be quite healthy. So it does happen indeed.
