PCOS – How would Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) affect your spouse while pregnant?

How would Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) affect your spouse while pregnant?


According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, there appears to be a higher rate of miscarriage, gestational diabetes, pregnancy-induced high blood pressure, and premature delivery in women with PCOS.


Researchers are studying how the medicine, metformin, prevents or reduces the chances of having these problems while pregnant, in addition to looking at how the drug lowers male hormone levels and limits weight gain in women who are obese when they get pregnant. No one yet knows if metformin is safe for pregnant women.


Because the drug crosses the placenta, doctors remain concerned that the baby could be affected by the drug. Research is ongoing.
