If you were my patient, I would advise you that while it is true that women with PCOS have a somewhat higher risk of miscarriage than women without, the overall risk is small.  If you were my patient, I would recommend that we do an ultrasound approximately once per week and check progesterone levels periodically.  If your levels were low, we could supplement.  If you managed to get pregnant in spite of PCOS your chances of having a healthy baby are quite good.
Good luck!

Unfortunately nothing can be done to prevent it. However stressing out is not good for you. Just breathe, relax and remain calm. I have pcos too and had a chemical pregnancy first time meaning i had positive results but the egg did not implant. Then a month later was pregnant again. Took a long time to get excited. I am now 33w2d. No problems. Just hang in there.

(refeering to the dr comment) My dr didnt check any of those things. They said as long as as i was showing no signs of danger there was no reason to keep checking as they can't do anything to stop it anyway. Sometimes the body will just work and sometimes it wont.

If its ment to be then its ment to be stressing is the worst for u and the baby the Dr tells me that all the time...
