Can PCOS & Thyroid affect your fertility?

Oct 21, 2021, 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a very common, yet chronic hormone imbalance condition that affects 5% to 10% of women in the age group ranging from 12 to 45 years. This covers the entire childbearing age of a woman. PCOS can impact on a woman's fertility, her menstruation, weight maintenance, appearance and even tamper with the insulin production. 

The ovaries make female sex hormones - estrogen and progesterone and a tiny amount of male sex hormones – androgens and the pituitary gland produce luteinizing hormone. These hormones help to regulate the normal development of eggs in the ovaries during each menstrual cycle. Eggs usually develop inside the follicles, which are tiny fluid-filled sacs in the ovaries. Once the egg matures enough, the follicle will rupture and discharge the egg. This process is called ovulation.

Polycystic ovary syndrome is associated with the imbalance of these sex hormones. Instead of tiny amounts of male sex hormone, the ovaries of women with PCOS produce high levels of androgen (male sex hormone).

The thyroid gland is a small butterfly shaped organ located in the lower front part of the neck. Improper functioning of thyroid gland may impact a woman's ability to conceive.

Check out how PCOS & thyroid can affect your fertility with Dr. Pooja Mittal in this Workshop.

Ma'am I am 34 years old. I have got my ultrasound done, ovaries volume is normal in size, periods are regular after every 25th day, weight is also maintained at 56 kgs. Still I am facing issues like appearance of peachy fuzz on my face and hair on stomach and there is hair loss. DHEAs is slightly raised. Could this still be PCOS? I have hypothyroidism since past 12 years which is also in control. All other reports are normal. I am confused. I conceived my first child without any issue . Can I conceive again if periods are normal. Please guide me.

Hello Doctor! I have heard there are 4 types of PCOS . My doctor didn't tell me which one I have. How do I find out which type of PCOS do I have? Is the treatment same for all 4 types? I am a 28 years old woman and My periods are regular but scanty. I was diagnosed with PCOS 5 years back due to complain of pain in legs during periods . I got married last year. Will I have difficulty in conception even though my periods are normal?

Namastey Madam! I have thyroid since puberty. I am on medication for the same. Recently I got to know I have Hashimito thyroiditis. I want to conceive. Is it safe to get pregnant with this prolonged hormonal issue? Will it have an impact on my unborn baby? Is taking thyorid medication for so long safe for me and my baby?
