Q: What are the odds of getting pregnant when you have PCOS?
A: According to Dr. Alan Martinez, it depends on many factors, including the age of the patient, the results of her fertility testing, and the presence of any pelvic pathology/conditions that can contribute to her infertility. Pregnancy success is dependent on the type of fertility treatment, but in general ranges from 15-20% with more conservative approaches and up to 40-60% for more advanced fertility treatments.
Dr. Alan Martinez is a reproductive endocrinologist at the Reproductive Science Center of New Jersey. For more information on this topic, listen to the Creating a Family radio show: Living with PCOS, and visit our blog: 5 Natural Treatments for PCOS.Image credit: drewesque
