Doctor :   You can get pregnant if you know which day you release ovum
Doctor :   This can be tested with serial Ultrasound or Ovulation testing kits

Doctor :   Yes but you have to give some time
Doctor :   May be three months to six months
User :   do i need to consume these tablets every month
Doctor :   These tablets will regulate your cycles and increases the chances of ovulation

Doctor :   But As I told you before, you need to use Ovulation kits to predict the time of egg release to conceive
