Thanks for your query.
PCOS is characterized by sonographically evident polycystic ovaries, irregular menstrual cycles and other features such as hirsutism, glucose intolerance etc.
It is not compulsory to have irregular cycles to be diagnosed as PCOS.
Any 2 out of the 3 cluster of symptoms and signs i mentioned are enough to diagnose PCOS.
Also, a potential complication in pregnancy is if you are Rh negative and your partner is Rh positive.
The groups you have would not result in a miscarriage.
Common causes of abortions are genetic causes, autoimmune conditions, abnormalities in uterine shape and size, hormonal imbalance and intrauterine infections.
Please have yourself evaluated by a high risk pregnancy specialist , and a Genetic counsellor, before planning your next pregnancy.
take care.
