PCOS Affects Five to 20 Percent of Women in Their Reproductive Years

JoTo PR client, Fertility CARE: The IVF Center, was featured in a Bustle piece titled, 8 Health Problems That Can Make It Harder To Get Pregnant.

Today, certain lifestyle choices can affect fertility, regardless of your gender, Dr. Joshua Hurwitz, board certified in both obstetrics and gynecology, reproductive endocrinology and infertility, tells Bustle. Smoking, for example, is toxic to everyone’s reproductive health. In addition, a number of uncontrolled medical issues can also cause a problem, so if you’re hoping to get pregnant, make sure that any negative health symptoms aren’t ignored, but visit a doctor instead if anything seems amiss.

A few health conditions that can affect chances of getting pregnant include premature ovarian failure, hypothyroidism, certain medications and polycystic ovarian syndrome. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is the most common hormonal disorder of women in their reproductive years. Mark P. Trolice, M.D., a board-certified OB/GYN, reproductive endocrinologist, and founder and director of Fertility CARE: The IVF Center, says to watch out for symptoms like irregular periods and hair growth in new areas. While there is no cure for the disorder, many of the accompanying medical issues can be addressed, and once those are resolved, you can explore options like oral medications, surgery to induce ovulation, and IVF.

Mark P. Trolice, M.D., is the founder and Director of Fertility CARE – The IVF Center. He also serves as Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/GYN) at the University of Central Florida College of Medicine in Orlando and Medical Director of the Egg Donor Program at Cryos International, the world’s largest sperm donor bank.
