Thanks for posting your query.
PCOD is a condition where in numerous small fluid filled cysts will be located along the edge of each ovary, which affects release of Egg (Ovulation) causing difficulty in getting Pregnant.
A hemoglobin at 8.3 is also suggestive of anaemia for which you are getting a treatment.
Treatment of PCOD includes lifestyle modification in which weight reduction and diet plays an important role.
Metformin drug is widely used for the treatment of PCOD and it helps in glucose metabolism. The feeling low could be related to thyroid hormone imbalance, anaemia or PCOD.
Low dose oral contarceptives and progesterone are also given for menstrual irregularities.
Ovulation induction drugs are given for infertility. You can get these prescribed from your gynecologist after your cycles become regular. You have to be patient and go for regular follow up visits to conceive.
Some doctor's prefer laparoscopic ovarian drilling but chances of adhesions are there.
To conclude , PCOD is a very common metabolic disorder these days and is due to western life style and inactivity , can be controlled with proper food , exercise , medical and surgical treatment under doctor's guidance.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

Thanks for writing again.
Since you have PCOD, you need to confirm by ovulation studies if there is a normal ovulation present. Then consult an infertility specialist for ovulation induction therapy if there is difficulty in ovulation. It needs a comprehensive treatment and takes around 6-10 months.
The following measures will improve your chances of conceiving:
a. Have unprotected sexual intercourse especially during days 10-18. The frequency should be atleast on alternate days.
b. Have a healthy, balanced diet
c. Practice yoga and meditation to ensure you remain stress free
Most important is exercising to lose weight and becoming fit. If exercise is not done then the hormonal imbalance will still be there. Proper diet consisting of low carbohydrates, low fat diet with plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water. Do daily brisk walking for 40 minutes. Avoid junk food, pastries, colas.
Hope my answer is helpful.

hello Doctor,

thank you for all your answers!!

my last question: whenever we do intercourse, my husband doesn't ejaculate. he takes lot of time. i had done google search and found Seman from Himalaya may increase his Sperm Count and ability to ejaculate.

we have done Semen analysis, it is 68kMillion. doctor says it is good and we may have baby with normal intercourse if i ovalute on time and we do this.

but, as you mentioned , we should have between 10-18 days, my husband doesnt cum out so easily. what are the medications you recommend for his fast ejaculation.

also, to mention, he does take forezest and tadora before sex for making me satisfied. he doesnt do this with his own feeling (i think) .

i never discussed this with any doctor. i understand i have PCOS and i may ovalute but, what shall i do when i Ovalute and my husband doesnt cum / ejaculate.

please let me know. hope you have understood my question.

From your description it seems that your husband has erectile dysfunction.
Erectile functions are affected by multiple factors - both organic and psychological. Urologist is an ideal person who can investigate for organic causes. Your husband may need battery of test - blood test, ultrasound scans, doppler study, neurological assessment, etc to identify the cause.
Do consult a urologist for proper treatment.
