hii mam,

I am Dr Soumen Patra and try to solve your problem.
You are currently suffering from PCOS and trying for a baby.

Lets start a detail discussion:

A female gets her pregnancy if all underlying factors are favourable from both of partners like Patent Tube, Ovulation in Time, Anatomically Normal Uterus and Adequate Sperm count of Husband.
If any of factors is abnormal,start to suffer from INFERTILITY.

I think that you are currently under treatment of PCOS.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is one of the main causes of infertility in women. It affects anywhere from 5-10% of women between the ages of 20 and 40 and associated with anovulation, making it the most common reproductive syndrome for women of this age group.

GUIDELINE: what to do??

1)Do a fresh semen analysis for husband to see any abnormality.
if all thing nomal,then it is ok.

2) Now start treatment for ANOVULATION with consult of your gynaecologist.
Option as follows:
* Clomephene Citrate> 50mg/ day starting from D2 to D6 of cycle and ovulation is monitored with serial ultrasound.
if response not satisfactory,100 mg/ day can be given.

** if above fail,combination of CC +hMG> patient advise to take Clomephene 50-100 mg/day from D2-D6 + inj hMG 75 unit IM on D3, D5 and D7 or more.

***if above fail, hMG + hCG can be given in amenorrhoeic low estrogen women.

****GnRH can be given alternative to hMG and ovulation rate 75-85% and pregnancy rate 25-30%

***PREDNISOLONE is also administered 5 mg at night + 2.5 mg every morning until spontaneous ovulation occurs.

** Hyperprolactinaemia is treated with BROMOCRIPTINE 1.25 mg @ bedtime daily for 7 days.

*In PCOS women , if ovulation induction is failed with medical treatment,then "LAPAROSCOPIC OVARIAN DRILLING OF FOLLICLES with MONOPOLAR CAUTERY" gives stisfactory result.

So dont be upset and I think this gives you a valuable information.

All you need to do just consult your gynaecologist.

All the best.
