PCOS & Infertility

PCOS & Infertility at RBA

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common conditions affecting female fertility. While there is no cure for PCOS, there are multiple treatments available to help reduce or eliminate its symptoms. At RBA, our experienced team can help with treatments to counteract the hormone irregularities that can make conceiving a baby seem impossible. We offer compassionate care to patients in Atlanta, and throughout Georgia.

What is PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome)?

PCOS is a common hormone disorder affecting 1 in 10 women of childbearing age. PCOS requires a medical diagnosis to confirm if it’s the cause of symptoms such as menstrual irregularity. Some women also experience hair growth / loss, acne, weight gain or depression. Because PCOS affects your menstrual cycles and ovulation, many women with this disorder suffer from female factor infertility as well.

Is it possible to conceive with PCOS?

Many women with PCOS find it difficult to conceive, but it is not impossible. RBA offers the following treatment options to women struggling with PCOS-related infertility:

  • Infertility evaluation and fertility testing
  • Fertility medication
  • In vitro fertilization (IVF)

In some cases, hormone therapy through medication is a valid treatment for infertility due to PCOS. In other cases, more advanced fertility treatment or assisted reproduction are necessary to conceive.

  • PCOS can cause infertility because it affects a woman’s hormone levels and can manifest in disruption of her normal menstrual cycle. This means that ovulation becomes non-existent or irregular due to elevated testosterone or underdeveloped follicles. When the ovaries stop cycling eggs from a woman’s egg reserve into her fallopian tubes, it becomes difficult or impossible for sperm to fertilize an egg. Infertility is one possible side effect of PCOS, but it is also a symptom which can be overcome with treatment.

  • PCOS can make getting pregnant difficult, but not always impossible. Your chances of getting pregnant improve the earlier you seek treatment. PCOS has no cure, but infertility due to PCOS can often be overcome through hormone therapy, medication or IVF. Contact RBA in greater Atlanta, GA for a fertility consultation if PCOS is preventing you from conceiving.
