The Influence of PCOS on Fertility and Conception

PCOS stands as a primary contributor to female infertility. Women with this condition often encounter irregular menstrual cycles due to elevated levels of androgens, or male hormones. These hormonal imbalances can hinder ovulation, making natural conception challenging. Moreover, overweight or obese women with PCOS face heightened difficulties in conceiving, whether through natural means or with fertility assistance.

Encouragingly, with appropriate treatment, about 60% of women with PCOS can achieve natural conception without the need for fertility clinic interventions.
