i am 17and a half years old and my uterus size is (66x24x39)mm and an earlier sonography reveals that when i was 15and a half my uterus size was (69x24x47)mm and i have very irregular periods that come after six to eight months my gynaecologist says i suffer from polycystal ovary syndrome and i have fat deposits due to which my uterus is very small, does that mean i cannot become pregnant later? right now i am undergoing a course of diane-35 tablets and have also been asked to loose weight, how helpful are these tablets?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Most common cause for PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) is insulin resistance, hence treatment with insulin modifiers work in reversing the changes and allowing normal ovulation. Discuss with your treating doctor/gynecologist about getting started on insulin modifiers. Hormonal contraceptive pills are usually prescribed to help with regulating the periods (these do not necessarily change the PCOS changes in ovary). Focus on weight loss and diet changes.
When you are ready for pregnancy, ovulation inducers can be started for you to help with maturation of more than 1 egg in ovary which will increase chances of pregnancy (especially after PCOS changes are under control with treatment with insulin modifiers).
