Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for your query.

Yes, Oosure alters the fat metabolism resulting in weight loss and also maintain the hormone levels to near normal range which could be helpful for conception.

But it is not the specific medication for ovulation induction in PCOS.There are much better and high efficacy drugs like Metformin and Clomifene which reduce the effects of PCOS , cause weight loss and induce ovulation.Do discuss about them with your Gynaecologist.

Yes, periods getting regular is a good sign indicating improvement in fertility, Oosure can be the cause here,but as I said there are much better drugs for the same.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.

are 2 failed iuis a cause for concern or a sign of any other disease or just sheer bad luck

Hi,

Thanks for writing back.

Yes, the failed IUIs could be considered as bad luck but not an indicator of any illness.Its fairly fine if 3 out of 4 fail with one success , where still no disease is expected.None of the artificial procedure can compete with natural ones.

Hope I cleared your doubt.

Wish you good health.
