Infertility is a common issue among women with Polycystic ovarian disease. PCOD can cause hormonal imbalances that can affect ovulation and fertility.
The symptoms of infertility related to PCOD include irregular periods, difficulty getting pregnant, and miscarriages. Women with PCOD may also experience acne, excessive hair growth, and weight gain.
The treatment for infertility related to PCOD depends on the underlying cause. Medications such as clomiphene citrate and letrozole can help stimulate ovulation. In some cases, surgical procedures such as ovarian drilling or in vitro fertilization (IVF) may be necessary.
Untreated infertility related to PCOD can lead to long-term complications, including endometrial cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.
Women with PCOD-related infertility should have regular checkups with their healthcare provider to monitor their reproductive health and discuss treatment options.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and managing underlying health issues are also essential to improving fertility outcomes.
