Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is one of the most common female fertility problems. Caused by a hormonal imbalance, PCOS can affect the ovaries, uterus, and fallopian tubes. PCOS is a leading reason for female infertility, but it is possible to get pregnant with this condition. So what are the effects of PCOS after having a baby?The first thing to take into a account when it comes to trying to get pregnant with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is that women suffering from it also increases the chances of having a miscarriage greatly. Miscarriage rates are said to be at around 50 percent for women who have PCOS, compared to 15 percent of the general population. There are lifestyle changes that you can make to reduce your chances of having a miscarriage, as well as lessening the likelihood that you will experience complications during your pregnancy such as gestational diabetes, hypertension in pregnancy, and babies born with a very high birth weight. Many of these changes focus on diet and health habits that reverse insulin resistance, which is the underlying cause of PCOS. If you are pregnant and have PCOS, you must be asking yourself whether your birth will be different because of your Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, and what the effects of PCOS are after having a baby.
There is some good news for women who did manage to conceive while suffering from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. Many women with PCOS report that they had a normal delivery, and that their symptoms decreased after birth. Many women might be worried that their symptoms will worsen after giving birth, but my (admittedly extremely non-scientific) observations from reading women s comments on the internet points to the very opposite. It is possible that your symptoms will be greatly reduced after having a baby. It is even possible that conceiving a second child will be easier after giving birth. Unfortunately, very little information is available on this subject. Did you conceive after a PCOS diagnosis? What did your doctor tell you about the effects of PCOS after birth? Will things really get better? Have you already given birth, and what are your experiences? We d love to hear from you!
