Was there any specific signs apart from normal pregnancy signs that you were pregnant if you have PCOS? And did you have Implantation bleeding?

  • It’s differs for everyone I guess. Good luck

  • My daughter in law and her sister have PCOS. They’re both pregnant atm and had no abnormal problems

  • My partner suffered from PCOS, but she was okay and healthy and bub too.

  • I have PCOS pretty bad. I have always suffered from extremely heavy periods with extremely painful cramping. However I thought this was normal. The first time I got pregnant and then started bleeding pale pink blood at 10 weeks I ended up in hospital, not only had the baby died but one of my ovaries had a huge 2.5 litre cyst attached to it. That was when I first found out I had PCOS. I had the cyst surgically removed and they could not save the ovary it was attached to. I was told to monitor my PCOS symptoms and I would only have a 50% chance of falling pregnant without IVF.

    I got pregnant with my daughter (without IVF mind you, Drs don’t know everything!) and the first sign was at 6 weeks I had morning sickness. After I had my daughter my periods stopped for 18 months. But when they started again they were even heavier than before and a lot more painful, I went back to the Dr who conducted an internal ultrasound and found that I now had lots of small cysts all over my last ovary. I was then given a 30% chance of conceiving without IVF. I was put on the pill to help the symptoms.

    My husband and I wanted another baby so we tried. On the day my period was due I got some pale pink bleeding and thought it was my period starting, but it stopped and never returned, I found out I was pregnant. I only took us three months to get pregnant again without IVF. I was told later it was implantation bleeding.

    When I had my son via C-section I had been chatting to the surgeons and telling them about my PCOS, they said they would take a look while they were in there and seemed surprised that I had even conceived, they said I would tell you that you probably won’t conceive again, but you have proved us wrong twice. Just make sure you monitor your symptoms. Lol, as I said Dr’s do not know everything. Good luck.

  • Pcos is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. I took pregnancy test was negative but then i thought i had Implantation Bleeding, so i had blood test but results for that was negative as well, I am still hoping to fall but pcos is really making it hard for me. Thanks for the reply here.

  • Might be best to consult your GP or Midwife

  • I have psoc but i had my kids before i developed it so not sure i can help you with your question.

  • I’m sorry i can’t help you as i am not sure what PCOS is.

  • What is PCOS?

  • Whats pcos

  • Just normal pregnancy signs and no bleeding here.

  • my sister has it <3

  • I suffer from PCOS and endometriosis I had implantation bleeding. I did suffer from pains durin my pregnancy and was in and out of PAC. Other than that I had a normal pregnancy. I had flu like symptoms and that’s how I found out I was pregnant, my mother in law told me to take a test.

  • no i don’t have this. i feel sorry for you. I hope it is not too painful. I think that you will be ok with your pregnancy. Go see your doc

  • I personally don’t suffer from PCOS, but a good friend of mine does.
    When she fell pregnant, she did have implantation bleeding, also suffered from terrible cramps.
    Both mum and bub are healthy though :)
