Hi

I just did a search about PCO and PE and came across this article:

I was diagnosed with pcos in 1995, and developed both gestational diabetes and severe pre eclampsia in my pregnancy. Ellie was born at 27wks with IUGR.

I had severe PE with my first, was diagnosed with PCOS after having problems with infertility trying to conceive #2, and had hypertension/low amniotic fluid with pregnancy #2.

I have PCOS and am dealing with PIH right now. So far, it hasn't developed into PE and I'm hoping to avoid it as I've only got to carry 2 more weeks. Time will tell, however. My first pg was uneventful with no PIH or PE, however, my PCOS did not really kick into high gear until after DD's birth.

Hello

I read on this web site that one of the conditions that may cause preeclamsia is polycystic ovaries syndrom. I do have PCO and ended up with PE . I was wondering how many ladies on this group have PCO and had PE dring their pregnancy?

Thank you

Nora
