Hello XXXXXXX
Thanks for posting your query on health care magic.

Let me answer your query one by one.

1. Can i get pregant with PCOD? Definitely Yes. Chances of conception is high provided your cycles are regulated. With Glucomet taken for 6 months, chances of pregnancy are good.

2. What are main symptom of pregnancy? Symptoms of pregnancy include nausea, vomiting, breast pain and enlargement, frequent urination and mood swings.

3. From last 2 months not get my period . Since you have not got periods after taking duphaston, you need to start with other progesterone derivative like Norgest 5mg three times daily for 5 days. You will then get your periods.

There is absolutely no need to worry.
Can you provide some more information regarding the following?
1. Are you overweight. What is your current weight?
2. Do you have excess hair on the body?
3. Do you have acne(pimples)?

Feel free to ask if you have further queries. I will be happy to help.

Waiting for your reply.
regards,
Dr Nilofer

Hello XXXXXXX
Thanks for your reply.

Following are my suggestions:
1. Ideal weight for your age is 56Kg. You are just 8 kg more than expected. Try to still reduce atleast 5 kg because reduction of weight doubles your chances of conception.

2. Shell i go for overy induction treatment now? Yes since you are 32 years old you need to take go for ovulation induction with clomifene citrate right away.

3. What is the success rate of this treatment.? Success of treatment is 30% with each cycle. With 6 continuous cycles of ovulation induction almost 60-70% of women conceive.
So do not worry. Be stress free . This adds to your fertility.
I will be happy to answer if you have follow up questions.
Hope this helps,
regards,
Dr Nilofer
