thanks for your query.
PCOD ( polycystic ovarian disease ) is one of the most common conditions affecting women in reproductive age group.
It is characterized by multiple small follicles in the ovaries, of which none ovulate, and hence, pregnancy is a problem
ALongwith you may have other conditions like diabetes, insulin resistance, increased androgens in the body etc and irregular periods.
Please follow an Infertility Specialist, and have your complete workup for PCOD done which includes FSH, LH, adrenal hormones, thyroid profile and blood sugars.
Also, your partners semen testing is essential.
What was the pattern during the previous IUI ? Did you successfully ovulate?
If not you need further medication/injections to help you ovulate.
Since you are 26, you have time on your side. Please go for tubal patency testing ( laparoscopy ) as advised and then for further IUI./ IVF.
Please remember that weight reduction and an active, healthy lifestyle are the key factors to control PCOD.
Take care
