Hi,

Thanks for your query.

I have read your query & I understand your concerns.

You can definitely try for this month. Following are additional advice:

1) Get a follicular growth scan where size of the follicle is checked. Best results are obtained when follicle is mature and dominant which can be seen on scan.

2) Women with PCOS have irregular cycles but there is no problem in conceiving.

3) The capsules prescribed by your doctor are good and can be taken for pegnancy support.

You have good chance of conceiving as you are 23 years old.

I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any followup queries you have.

Regards,

Hi,

Thanks for your query.

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

1) This cycle your ovulation is over. The dydrogesterone tablets you are taking are for pregnancy support.

2) If you have conceived, these tablets will help baby's growth. If not conceived you will get cycles within a week after stopping the tablets.

3) once you get cycles, you get regular follicular growth scan from infertility specialist. They will tell you when you get good dominant follicle and when is best time to have intercourse and conceive.

4) Obesity reduces chances of getting pregnant. It is desirable to reduce your weight before trying for pregnancy.

I hope I answered your query. I will be available for any followup queries you have. If no more queries, please accept the answer & close the discussion.

Regards,
