Some studies have shown that women with PCOS have a greater risk of miscarrying. Moreover, there are other obstetric complications to keep in mind, including:

  • Gestational diabetes
  • Preeclampsia
  • Low birth weight
  • Preterm birth
  • C-section

For these reasons, women with PCOS are more likely to go through a high-risk pregnancy.
