i was diagonosed with pcos 8 years ago and i went to a obgyn a couple of weeks ago and she told because of my age i'm 36 and because i have pcos i will never be able to have children is this true? i have some health problems too including high blood pressure, high chlosterol,bi-polar, heartburn, seasonal allergies, arthiritis in back, diabetes 2, asthma and borderline personality disorder.
PCOS can cause infertility or reduced fertility. some couples who have to deal with PCOS use medication called clomid to balance their hormones. if clomid doesnt work they use injected drugs like Pergonal, Humegon or Metrodin may be used.
Laparoscopic Ovarian Diathermy (LOD):This is a surgical procedure similar to a laparoscopy. It involves burning part of the ovaries with a laser, which usually corrects hormonal imbalances.
i have high blood pressure and that is dangerous to have a baby in that condition per my doctor.
if you have diabetes, you have a slightly higher risk than other women of your baby:
* having a birth defect;
* being born prematurely;
* weighing too much or too little;
* having jaundice; or
* having dangerously low blood sugar levels after birth.
