Hi, PCOS is a common medical condition which is associated with irregular cycles, obesity and sub fertility. Mainstay of treatment is lifestyle modification to lose weight if overweight, metformin and management of either irregular cycles or sub fertility according to the patient's main complaint. A haemorrhagic cyst in the ovary less than 2 cm will resolve on its own. Your gynae has put you on clomid which is an ovulation inducing drug based on your usg report of no signs of ovulation. Clomid is a safe if taken under medical supervision. Lower abdominal pain is a side effect of clomid and a cause of concern only if the pain is unbearable.You have chances of getting pregnant if penetration has occured even though the semen is expelled outside.
