How to Improve Fertility with PCOD/PCOS

If you have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), you have likely been told that you may not get pregnant or that you will have trouble getting pregnant. That is just not true. Most women can conceive with PCOS by making some major lifestyle changes.

Let’s start with learning about this PCOS:

1 in 10 women is affected by this endocrine disorder. The condition is characterized by reproductive issue such as signs of extra male hormones, irregular release of eggs, enlarged ovaries and more than 12 cysts (fluid-filled sacs around developing eggs) seen on an ultrasound or other menstrual irregularities. To diagnose PCOS, you need to have at least two out of the three criteria.

More generalized symptoms include Acne, Histruisim (excessive or abnormal distribution of hair growth), male pattern baldness, obesity and sleep apnea. If you are dealing with PCOS, it does not mean you can’t get pregnant. It is common but treatable causes of infertility in women

Here are 5 Tips that might help you to cure PCOS/PCOD and will increase the chances of conceiving and giving birth to healthy baby

  • Know your cycle: It is very difficult to predict when you are ovulating due to irregular periods in PCOS/PCOD. There are some signs that ovulation is occurring or about to occur like Mucus changes around the time of ovulation, a woman might notice her vagina’s mucus is slick and slippery. Some women experience abdominal pain during ovulation. This pain can be general or on one side of the abdomen. Premenstrual symptoms like breast tenderness, abdominal bloating, and moodiness can accompany ovulation.
  • Loose weight: Most people know that being overweight or obese increases the risk of health problems such as heart disease and diabetes. But many are unaware that this can also reduce fertility and the chance of having a healthy baby. Getting closer to a healthy weight before conception increases the chance of the baby being healthy at birth.
  • Get Your Thyroid Checked: There is growing consensus among medical community that thyroid and PCOS are linked. Both are most common endocrine disorders. Thyroid Disorder can have negative effect like an increase in ovarian volume and cystic changes in ovaries. In the other direction, it is increasingly realized that thyroid disorders are more common in women with PCOS as compared to the normal population.
  • Vitamin D Supplements: Apart from the well-known effects of vitamin D on maintaining calcium homeostasis and promoting bone mineralization, there is some evidence suggesting that vitamin D also modulates human reproductive processes. Vitamin D treatment improved endometriosis. Improved Vitamin D levels is favorably associated with primary dysmenorrhea, uterine leiomyoma, and ovarian reserve in late reproductive aged women.
  • Omega 3 Intake: Daily intake of Omega-3 supplements helps in stabilizing androgen levels. Women who consume 3 grams of omega -3 every day have noticed a gradual decline in androgen levels in their body.
