Hi, im 29 yrs old and married for 8 years. Diagnosed with pcos when i was 19. Was prescribed sonulot and metformin and stop the medication ( trying to regulate with no med ) when i was 22. Last year went to gynae and still with pcos. But because me n husband are trying to have a baby, my gynae gave 3 round of chlomid. I ovulate with chlomid but the cycle was not successful. He advise me to lose some weight. This year manage to lose some and talked with my pharmacist. And she said about regulating my menses by consuming contraceptive pill.

It cannot be predicted beforehand that how many days you will have to take pills.One has to take pills for a cycle or so and see if you are ovulating.If you are ovulating then affords are made to get pregnant . Follicular monitoring, that is series sonography can help in this. If no dominant follicle is seen on sonography during expected period of ovulation, you need to repeat pills.
