118 – What You Need to Know About PCOS, Fertility, & Pregnancy

PCOS Podcast 118 - PCOS, Fertility, & Pregnancy“If you, as a PCOS patient, do not feel that your healthcare provider is taking ownership in your problem, get someone else. You have been frustrated long enough, you have been overwhelmed long enough, and you need someone to be your advocate, to answer your questions, to provide you with options as opposed to only one way, to be cost-conscious, and to be your ally- to work with you along your journey. However long it takes to find the right doctor, I think you need to do that.” – Dr. Mark Trolice

If you’ve been diagnosed with PCOS, you may have been told, “It’s going to be very difficult for you to have children,” or even, “You won’t have children.” Dr. Mark Trolice is here to tell you that is not necessarily true. Dr. Trolice is the Director of Fertility Care at the IVF Center in Winter Park, Florida, and is a double board-certified doctor in reproductive endocrinology and fertility as well as an OB/GYN. He spends a lot of time advocating for women with PCOS on a national level as well as helping them to conceive and have healthy pregnancies. On this podcast, we discuss fertility challenges for women with PCOS and how to overcome them. Listen in (or read the transcript) as we discuss:

  • Causes of PCOS and criteria for PCOS diagnosis
  • Why you have excess hair growth and when to consider electrolysis or laser hair removal
  • Things to consider (other than PCOS) if you are having trouble conceiving
  • What to do before you try to get pregnant
  • Letrozole vs. Clomid
  • Pros and cons of ovarian drilling
  • Special considerations for women with PCOS undergoing IVF
