How PCOS Affects Female Fertility?

PCOS affects 1-in-10 women in the world.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is the most common ovulatory disorder in women of reproductive age, slightly more than one-third of all infertility diagnoses in women.

How PCOS Affects Fertility?

According to Rotterdam’s Criteria, a PCOS diagnose includes these three main features:

  • Irregular period or no period at all
  • Excess hirsutism
  • Polycystic ovaries

Many women do not know that they have PCOS until they try to conceive or pay a visit to a gynaecologist. While infertility is a common cause of PCOS, it is still possible for you to get pregnant with PCOS with a lifestyle change and being mindful of your food choices. 
During each menstrual cycle, the ovaries release an egg (ovum) into the uterus to be fertilised by the sperm. This process is called ovulation and usually occurs once a month.

However, PCOS women fail to ovulate or ovulate frequently – making it difficult to identify their ovulation and get pregnant.
