While there are some of us here who have PCOS, there are many many more PCOS'ers who have perfectly normal, healthy pregnancies. My doctors did not consider my PCOS a risk factor and do not think it had anything to do with why I got so sick so early in my first pregnancy. (I was not being treated for PCOS in my second pregnancy, was heavier, and yet had a healthy pregnancy, albeit with gestational diabetes.) I really like the forums at www.soulcysters.net
there is a section for trying to conceive and a section for pregnancy and a section for parenting--you will see that the large majority of people there do *not* have pre-e in their pregnancies (although probably more do than in the general population of women without pcos.) And as far as ttc, you never know, some people with pcos get pregnant very easily, others it takes awhile. If you have regular ovulatory cycles, then it likely won't cause anymore issues trying than anyone else. And if you don't, there are a lot of different medications they can give to help you ovulate. (My mom just took clomid to conceive me and later my sister. Then had 2 surprise pregnancies later. We conceived our daughter without fertility treatments at all, although we did do fertility treatments with our son because I couldn't stand the waiting.)
I personally don't and wouldn't live my life by what *could* happen. I could get killed in a car accident or hit by lightning or something else random and crappy. (The research indicates car accidents are the leading cause of death for my age group, yet I still drive and go places via car.) My odds for getting pre-e the first time were very low- I had no family history of any pregnancy complications and was pretty young and healthy. But I ended up with HELLP (which is even rarer than pre-e) and an "atypical case" of HELLP at that because I showed no symptoms of pre-e before I got sick (in fact my blood pressure was normal.) Yet in my second pregnancy, my risks were much much higher only because of my history, yet I had a healthy, relatively normal high risk pregnancy.
