Now let me put some light on "PCOS"

POLY-CYSTIC-OVARIAN-SYNDROME = " multiple , fluid filled cavities in ovary"

NOW FOR simple understanding is not medically accurate just for understanding purpose ONLY.
Main function of ovary is to produce the female sex hormone like estrogen / progesterone which comes out in a cyclic fashion like 25 days comes estrogen while for 5 days comes progesterone which cause bleeding. This is maintained by brain but the days varies for all females. now due to the PCOS the production of estrogen and progesterone gets disturbed/ may not have enough production on one or the other leading to imbalances and hence makes irregular bleeds as well as problems with pregnancies are seen.

1) Acne.
2) Weight gain and trouble losing weight.
3) Extra hair on the face and body. Often women get thicker and darker facial hair and more hair on the chest, belly, and back.
4) Thinning hair on the scalp.
5) Irregular periods. Often women with PCOS have fewer than nine periods a year. Some women have no periods. Others have very heavy bleeding.
6) Fertility problems. Many women who have PCOS have trouble getting pregnant (infertility).
7) Depression.

(2) Here is the way to give a greater chances for becoming pregnant.

The process know as "OVULATION" is when the female egg releases from OVARY, this occurs roughly between the 15 th -20 th day after the menstrual cycle (end of bleeding ), pregnancy means the meeting of the man's SPERM to the female's OVA- both have half genes which need to get together in order to form a complete structure, so the best possibility for the pregnancy is if the intercourse has occurred during those five days, other time their is no OVA present to meet the sperms hence no possibility of getting pregnant.
IF you have been having 30 days cycle so the best chances to get pregnant is during fertility window while you are ovulating, for the best chances to get pregnant are from 16 days to 21 day from last menstrual withdrawal/ bleeding, ( if last day of menses is 14 march the the fertility window will be 1 april to 5 april ), more over the intercourse position is also important for the sperm have best possible chance to enter, mostly the female in bottom /missionary position is considered better, and keep lying for 30 min after ejaculation with the legs on the pillows and head flat to make incline position for sperm entry in the uterus.

**(3)If still facing issue with getting pregnant then.

(b) Their is an drug for ovulation which can be prescribe as generally the issue with PCOS in having a problem with ovulation.

Hope it helps
