PCOS, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, is one of the most common infertility problems that affect a woman’s hormones, periods and ovulation and cause pregnancy difficulty. PCOS is named for the symptom of having many small cysts growing on your ovaries, which are not harmful but lead to hormone imbalances. Approximately, one in every 10 to 15 women has this issue and most of the patients are diagnosed in their twenties to thirties, when they are most likely to get pregnant.
Having PCOS definitely makes TTC tougher but there are still many success stories. We selected a few inspirational cases to share with you. If you are not sure about your fertility condition, the easiest way is to start monitoring ovulation to see if you are having regular cycles. If you have this issue, don’t be frustrated. Go see a doctor and find out about treatments. You may have your own miracle.
