Abstract OBJECTIVE: To study the incidence of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) in Mexican women with a history of infertility and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) compared with women without PCOS matched by age, pregestational body mass index (BMI), and parity. DESIGN: Historic cohort study. SETTING: Level three medical institution. PATIENT(S): Group 1 (n = 52), women with a history of infertility and PCOS, and group 2 (n = 52), women without PCOS. Inclusion criteria were singleton pregnancy with ≤ 13 weeks of gestation. Exclusion criteria were pregestational diabetes mellitus and/or concomitant diseases. INTERVENTION(S): Diagnosis of GDM was based on a 3-hour, 100-g oral glucose tolerance test (GTT) performed during the second trimester. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Incidence and relative risk (RR) for GDM. RESULT(S): The incidence of GDM was 26.9\% and 9.6\% for groups 1 and 2, respectively (RR = 2.8; 95\% confidence interval 1.08-7.2). No other between-group differences were observed in the incidence of miscarriage, preterm birth, premature rupture of membranes, preeclampsia, stillbirth, fetal malformations, or small or large for gestational age newborns. CONCLUSION(S): Pregnant Mexican women with a history of infertility and PCOS are at increased risk for developing GDM. This risk should be considered beginning early in the second trimester for a timely intervention and to improve the maternal-fetal prognosis.
