Brief Answer: YOU CAN TAKE CABGOLIN TODAY. FOLLOW THE GUIDELINE. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us on XXXXXXX Irregular period occurs due to hormonal imbalance, caused by PCOS (Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome) which leads to infertility due to improper ovulation. For successful conception, you would need to follow these suggestions: 1) You need to have a regular cycle with proper ovulation. For this, you should continue above prescribed medication like Metformin 500 mg to overcome insulin resistance. Progesterone pill may be required from D16 to D25 to regularize your monthly cycle. Kindly, consult with your gynecologist regarding this. 2) For proper ovulation, you need to take Siphene (ovulation induction drug) from D2 as prescribed. Along with, you should undergo serial follicular study (D12 to D16) or you can use ovulation prediction kit (LH kit) in the middle of each cycle. It helps to track down your ovulation. To maximize the chance of pregnancy, you should involve in unprotected sex close to ovulation time or fertile days. 3) You must take a healthy balanced diet with more fresh fruits and vegetables. Low carbohydrate diet is preferable. Take vitamin-E and folic acid supplements for 3 months in preconception period and there after. 4) Do light to moderate exercise for physical fitness and to reduce or control body weight. Avoid mental stress completely by regular meditation/ yoga. Maintain a healthy life style. CABERGOLINE: It is a dopamine receptor agonist and used to treat high levels of prolactin hormone either due to pituitary tumors or unknown causes. You can take the medicine (CABGOLIN 0.25) on 2nd day of cycle (once a week). There is NO cross reaction with other drugs. Hope, above information is quite helpful to you.
