Hi, thank you for asking healthcare magic.
I have gone through your query and understood your concerns.
The multiple follicles seen are not really cyst per se. Cysts have a larger diameter than this. They are probably primary follicles that are undergoing development and during each menstrual period, usually one is released after it has completely developed. You do no really need to be worried about their presence. Concerning the miscarriage, the cause might not be obvious. Most of miscarriages occurring within the first trimester result from chromosomal (genetic) abnormalities. Other causes could be diabetes, hormonal problems or infections. You may still need to do a series of laboratory investigation. I would suggest you see a gynecologist for proper assessment and management.

I hope that answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. We will be delighted to answer more questions from you.
I wish you good health

Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

Polycystic ovarian disease comprises a symptom complex and hormonal imbalance is the most important part. There is a luteal phase defect, that means, progesterone is deficient in the later half of the cycle and in the event of conception, chances of abortion are more as the hormone needed to support pregnancy, namely progesterone, is not produced in sufficient quantities. This makes it necessary for hormonal supplementation during the early pregnancy stages until the placenta takes over.

Metformin helps to reduce insulin resistance, if present, and also helps in weight reduction.This drug improves ovulation and leads to regular menstrual cycles. Continue them.

Clomiphene citrate helps in ovulation induction, should be taken in first half of cycle under a qualified gynecologists guidance. Ultrasound monitoring of follicle development and detection of ovum release helps to have intercourse on day of ovulation, which helps chances of conception.

If medical line of management is not helpful, then ovarian drilling helps in release of ovum.

weight reduction, Healthy diet and regular exercise are very helpful.

Hope this helps you.
