    Default PCOS...can I have a baby girl??

    Hi to all. I was dx'd w/PCOS 9 years ago. I now have 3 beautiful sons. I just found out that I am pg AGAIN.... Any chance that this could be a girl?? My question is.... Can a woman w/PCOS have a healthy baby girl?? I know that the dh decides the sex of the baby, but is there an issus w/the woman not being able to carry the "x" (girl) chromosome? My sons are my life and if this one is another son, I will love him just as equally. However, it would be lovely to have a little girl!!! Thank you in advice for your help/advice....

    I don't think there is any issue with PCOSers being able to carry boys but not girls. I have a beautiful daughter, as do many cysters. If you have had three healthy boys you have a great chance at having a healthy daughter. You will want to monitor her for any signs of PCOS, particularly before and during puberty. Your sons may be more likely to have insulin resistance or other parts of "metabolic syndrome," the male version of PCOS.

    I think sex is usually luck of the draw. I just got a call from a friend...she gave birth to her fifth boy today!

    I do not think there is a problem between a baby's gender and PCOS.... I have a daughter, and there were no problems with my pregnancy (except of course getting pregnant).

    Good Luck with your pregnancy!

    I think my Mom has PCOS and she had me. I think my cousin has PCOS and she has two daughters. One of my cousins is a cyster and she has 2 daughters I think. I have a daughter.

    Please check out our link on PCOS and kids: http://www.soulcysters.net/your-chil...thread-139783/

    Boys can be affected, also, it seems.

    Well, I just did! I think it's more of the man and his issues than a woman, although they say if you go through fertility treatments (that make CM thicker) you're more likely to have a boy. Likewise, my DH is ex-pothead and the perinatologist said that made it more likely we'd have all girls b/c his morphology is so poor. And our baby is also the first girl in almost 100 years on his family side.

    No advice, but just wanted to say, yeah, we can have girls!
    My PCOS is acting up today....
    • allergy therapy x 7 years
    • finally had the Pillar procedure for the sleep apnea
    • 2 wonderful littl'ns thanks to d-chiro-inositol

    Just a quick reply, I don't think that PCOS has to do with gender of babies conceived as I have had two beautiful and healthy girls.

    NO! Women only have X chromosomes, so that's all they can pass on to their children. No matter whether a woman has a son or a daughter she will pass on an X chromosome to her child....what determines the sex of the baby is what the father passes on. Males have an X (inherited from from their mother) and a Y, so they can pass on either one to make a boy or a girl.
