Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

How does PCOS affect a woman while pregnant

Women with PCOS appear to have higher rates of: Miscarriage Gestational diabetes Pregnancy-induced high blood pressure (preeclampsia) Premature delivery

Babies born to women with PCOS have a higher risk of spending time in a neonatal intensive care unit or of dying before, during, or shortly after birth. Most of the time, these problems occur in multiple-birth babies (twins, triplets).
