First of all, I am very sorry

First of all, I am very sorry for your loss. Going through a miscarriage is a very difficult experience. While research is not clear, many doctors believe that women with PCOS have a higher than average miscarriage risk. However, many women with PCOS are able to have healthy pregnancies.

One new research is finding that women with PCOS may have more success getting pregnant in their thirties than they did in their twenties.

I don't know if you continued taking metformin after you conceived, but research suggests that you may be able to lower your miscarriage risk if you do not stop taking metformin after you get a positive pregnancy test.

Normally, prolactin less than 20 is considered to be good and yours is just slightly above that.

I would consider getting a progesterone level done on your next cycle, as low progesterone can lead to miscarriage.

While it can be hard to remember, a miscarriage can be a positive sign that you can get pregnant. Wishing you the very best,
