    Default PCO & bad eggs

    I've heard someone saying that with PCO you will most likely have bad eggs. Is there any truth to this? I have PCO but not the syndrome. My AMH is very high. My LH is also high normally. Does anyone have any info on this...?

    I don't think everyone with pco has bad eggs. I have pcos, high AMH (over 50!) and my ivf cycle they collected 18 eggs of which 15 fertilised great and the 3 didn't as they were immature not poor quality.

    No this isn't true. Having PCOS or pco means you likely have more eggs than someone else without it as you haven't been 'using them' each month.

    I haven't heard this. I have read on some 'expert's' website that if you ovulate after CD 21 then egg quality is not as good, however I couldn't find any research to confirm if this is correct and why. It just seemed to be their anecdotal opinion. Sorry, was a while ago, so don't remember exact source.

    DD I was straight off the pill and would have ovulated around CD35 based on last withdrawal bleed. She's 7 years old now and definitely not 'poor quality'.

    Im in the same boat. I have blaring pos opk for 2 weeks and 2 weeks of ewcm making ovulation CD 26. Ive read that a LH surge for too long can produce too much progesterone which can make for an unfavorable uterine climate for when/if you actually produce an egg.
