Hello and welcome,

The report is ambiguous. The size of ovaries are enlarged and they also contains multiple follicles. This itself indicates a polycystic ovary as the picture description fits it unless you have used ovulation inducing drugs.

However please do not get disheartened. This is very common disorder and needs ovulation induction using drugs.

As of now, please get a repeat scan from a radiologist. If you are using ovulation enhancing drugs, stop them for 3 months and then scan. If the follicles are still there, it is PCO. Visit an infertility specialist. You will need to do a husbands semen analysis, test to check if your tubes are open. If these are fine, ovulation inducing drugs along with follicular study will help.

Hope this helped. Best of luck.
Thanks for using HCM.
