Getting Pregnant With PCOS: Pregnancy Tips For Couples

Polycystic ovarian syndrome or PCOS is one of the major problems that 85 percent of all women are suffering from. The main cause of this syndrome is an improper lifestyle lead by the women.

Due to high levels of stress, unhealthy eating habits, lack of sleep, fatty foods, being overweight and feeling lethargic, the onset of PCOS can occur in women, as these are the sole reasons for it.

When suffering from this problem, it becomes a little difficult for a woman to conceive a child. However, it is not impossible.

Since PCOS is one of the many causes of infertility in women due to the androgen (androgens are male hormones that do not naturally have any vital part to play in the woman's menstrual cycle or her fertility) levels going up , women often feel that there is no chance of getting pregnant.

With a proper planning and under the guidance of a right doctor, a woman with PCOS can successfully conceive.

If you are battling PCOS and trying to get pregnant, here below are some of the important things that you should keep in mind, if you want to see a positive indication on the home pregnancy test.

So, take a look at some of the pregnancy tips for women who have PCOS.


Have A Balanced Diet:

Your diet must be essentially low in fat and crabs if you want to get pregnant with PCOS. Change your lifestyle and eating habits to more protein- and nutrient-rich foods, and skip the high-calorie foods.


Detoxify The Body:

Detoxifying the body is a healthy choice to make if you are trying to get pregnant with PCOS. The detoxification rate and fertility are directly proportional to each other. Besides, it also balances the hormones. Hence, stay away from coffee, sugar and other fat-related foods.


Herbs Are Good Too:

Herbs are good and generally the best when it comes to conceiving. But, health experts state that allopathy and ayurveda usually have their side effects, and this is a risk to take. So, stick to one method of treatment for best results.


Take The Right Medication:

When you are getting pregnant with PCOS, your medication must be effective enough to treat insulin resistance. When this is in place, there is a possibility for you to easily get pregnant with PCOS.


Know Your Ovulation Time:

PCOS hampers the normal ovulation cycle in a woman. Therefore, to get pregnant with PCOS, it is wise to take an ovulation test every month just to keep track to see when is the right time to have a baby.


At The Time Of Conception:

You need to plan out an optimum time for conception by tracking your basal body temperature. It is advisable to have an intercourse four days around the ovulation period.


Get Rid Of Stress:

A stressed condition can further delay the conception, especially when you are also dealing with PCOS. Hence, take the prescribed medication and have a positive mind when it comes to the treatment.
