Improving Fertility With PCOS
Whether you are just embarking on your fertility journey, have been TTC (trying to conceive) for a while or have suffered the heart break of miscarriage, we hope we can help empower you with the information you need to ensure that your body and egg quality are the best they can be to successfully conceive.
It is important to understand that PCOS sufferers may find it difficult to conceive or suffer miscarriage as a result of either infrequent or non-existent ovulation and menstruation and poor egg quality. The cycle of an egg is around 90 days, so anything you can do to help support your ovaries and eggs needs to be done for at least 90 consecutive days. This will ensure your eggs are in tip top condition by the time you try for a baby.
The scientific reason for struggling to get pregnant with PCOS relates to the way a PCOS sufferer produces an excessive amount of male hormones that interfere with the production of the female hormones that your body needs in order to ovulate. Because your body is not ovulating, progesterone (the hormone that causes the lining of the uterus to thicken) is not being produced. This results in an absence of periods or irregular menstruation. When there is a lack of ovulation and menstruation, conception is just not possible.
Equally it is the increase in male hormones (predominantly testosterone) produced by the ovaries and delayed ovulation that results in poor egg quality.
