Hi.... I am 26 years old and am suffering from PCOD since past 8 years. I am married for 8 months now and we are now trying for a baby. Starting 21st October 2011 (5 days i was prescribed Siphene 100 ) followed by another 5 days course in the next cycle. Pregnancy was not achieved in both months. I changed Gynaecs and my new Gynaec has suggested to NOT take any pills (like Primolut N, Deviry or ETS500) to get periods and wants them to start naturally after which she will conduct a follicular study. My LMP was on 28th November 2011 and i haven't got periods after that. Pregnancy test was negative. Please advice if this is the right treatment as because of the delay in my periods, i'm putting on a lot of weight. All my efforts of losing weight are going in vain. At the moment she has also asked me to take Folinine D (1 capsule after lunch). Please advice...
Welcome to ehealthforum.
PCOS responds well with use of insulin modifiers and ovulation inducers for pregnancy. Consider discussing with your treating doctor/gynecologist about getting started on insulin modifiers for better control of PCOS and return of normal fertility. Once the PCOS is under control, ovulation inducers would be started to help you have more than 1 egg getting matured to 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. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
