Brief Answer:
Conception is possible

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to XXXXXXX
PCOS is a genetic entity. Like your height, complexion, color of eyes which are genetically determined & can't be changed but still you live with It, there is no need to find cure. You can lessen the harmful effects caused by PCOS by following simple steps:
1. Eat healthy high fibre adequate calorie diet, avoid eating excess fat & carbohydrates which are known to cause weight gain.
2. Do at least 30 minutes of sweat inducing exercise like skipping, swimming, jogging or cycling.
3. Your weight is in far much excess of height, you can join gym/any structured weight loss programme.
Regarding pregnancy, if your menstrual cycles are regular you need not worry.
If cycles are irregular, you can conceive with simple ovulation induction medicines. So getting pregnant should not be a big problem.
If you are trying for pregnancy, treatment should start by doing husband's semen analysis & if its normal It should follow ovulation induction medicines which are typically started from second day of your menses (day of starting menses is considered as first day).
PCOS & obese people are at high risk for diabetes, heart disease & uterine cancer. All those things can be avoided by simple weight reduction.

Let me know if you have other concerns.

Wish you good health.

Brief Answer:
Don't be scared.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back.
Don't be scared as the adverse effects I described don't ocur at your age. Its just that you have to be careful to avoid them.
Regarding medicines for withdrawl bleeding (menses) we normally give medroxyprogesterone acetate 10mg twice daily for 5 days to PCOS patients. You can consult your physician for the same.
One important thing to prevent uterine cancer is to ensure that you have menses at least 4 times in a year with progesterone withdrawl.
If you are not trying for pregnancy right now, you can continue genette 35 for regularizing menses. If you are trying for pregnancy, better to consult infertility specialist.

Let me know if you have other concerns.

Brief Answer:
Good chance of conception if PCOS.

Detailed Answer:

The above listed medicine is a prescription only medicine; you need a prescription from a doctor to obtain this drug. Besides that, I always prefer my patients to consult a doctor before starting medicine.

Regarding chance for conception if you have PCOS (ultrasound showing polycystic ovaries), you have very good chance for conception by ovulation induction with medicines. Only important thing is, you need to take medicines for ovulation induction, because ovulation is not occurring on its own.

Let me know if you have other concerns.
