If you had problems conceiving, it feels so good to finally be pregnant after months or even years of trying. But if you have PCOS, the journey does not end after you see that positive pregnancy test. According to the Office on Women’s Health, pregnant women with PCOS could face a multitude of health problems. Women who have PCOS have a higher risk of miscarrying. They are also more likely to develop pregnancy-related complications, such as gestational diabetes and preeclampsia. They are also more likely to give birth via c-section. Children of moms with PCOS are also at risk. They are more likely to weigh more at birth and to spend time in the NICU than babies born to mothers without PCOS.
