Welcome to ehealthforum,
PCOD/PCOS stands for polycystic ovarian disease/syndrome. In this, the ovaries do release the egg periodically as the egg follicle development is defective. PCOS usually responds to treatment with insulin modifiers as most common cause for PCOS is insulin resistance. The treatment prescribed to you will help to reverse the PCOS changes and regulating your period. If you have been trying for pregnancy, consider requesting your treating gynecologist about getting started on ovulation inducers (once PCOS is under control and after stopping the contraceptive pill use) to help increase chances of pregnancy. If you are trying for pregnancy, monitor cervical mucus changes and the BBT (basal body temperature) charting to predict your ovulation (along with the follicular study) and time your intercourse for having fruitful results. Have intercourse in positions that allow for deeper penetration for high deposit of semen. Have diet with foods rich in zinc content to ensure better maturation of egg and sperms. Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
