How are symptoms of polycystic ovaries treated ?

Hi, I have polycystic ovaries, my last two periods have been fairly regular. I had one on 26th Dec last year, one on the 27th February and the most recent one was the 3rd April. I ve had sex with my partner eight times since the 3rd April. The first date being 20th April. Now I am experiencing extreme bloating , dizziness , tiredness and slight cramping. I have had two miscarriages before, I knew I was pregnant both times because the first symptom I had was really tender breasts. What could all these new symptoms be?? Thanks

PCOS is a condition in which miscarriages are common as there may be non development of the corpus luteum which maintains the fertilized ovum until the placenta is developed.In case you have any future pregnancies youmight have to take human chorionic gonadotrophin injections from the 7th to the twelfth week of pregnancy.Your present condition may be due to a pregnancy which can be confirmed by doing a urine pregnancy test.You should also get your T3,T4 and TSH checked as hypothyroidism can also cause these symptoms.Regular exercise and weight loss is a good way to keep your PCOS in control

1. Wait for another 10-15 days and get a urine pregnancy test - if negative nothing to worry. Your symptoms can be due to premenstrual syndrome,
2. Get a progesterone withdrawal bleed regularly every 45 days,
3. Get your thyroid function tests and prolactin levels before conception.
