What are the chances of having multiples when you have PCOS?

I want to reduce my chances of having multiples.

The chances of having multiples during PCOS is likely.. PCOS Patients have In-vitro fertilization. Several embryos are places inside the uterus. Sometimes all the embryos begin to grow and that is when triplets and twins occur. The best way to NOT have multiples in my opinion is just to try to make a baby the natural way.

There is no way to reduce your risk of multiples. I don't think having PCOS has anything to do with having multiple babies. Please visit with your doctor about your disease and about getting pregnant before you conceive. They will have the best answers for you and your husband.

It is common to have multiples when you have PCOS if you are having assisted reproduction such as IVF, in about a third of the pregnancies. However, if you trying to get pregnant on your own, multiples are less likely.

The chances of having multiples is not any greater than it would be with normally functioning ovaries. If you are having fertility treatments the chance of having multiples is increased.

PCOS, or poly cystic Ovarian Syndrone does not in itself increase your chances of having multiples, so your chances would be the same of that of anyone else, less than five percent. Even the common medication given to treat PCOS will not increase your chances of having multiples. So you are safe.

PCOS sometimes causes more than one follicle to release an egg each month so multiples are more likely. Also PCOS is a syndrome, not a disease.
