Brief Answer: kindly reply with the drug contents. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX I have analyzed your query completely, I am not able to find out the contents of Oxyn and ovigyn DSR tablets, if you could kindly reply regrading what contents it has got. Also kindly reply regarding your latest scan report, husbands semen report and blood investigations, most importantly serum FSH (follicular stimulating hormone) , LH (leutinizing hormone) levels if it is done. You can even upload the images. Also let me know if any other investigations done like HSG-hysterosalpingography or any laparoscopy surgery done. Lastly since how long you are married. And about the other two drugs, Trufol contains folic acid, it is given as folic acid supplementation in case if you become pregnant. Novelon is a combined oestrogen progesterone hormonal tab, it is given to regularize your period. Please ask if you have more questions, and do write back with the answers so that I can guide you further. Awaiting your response. Regards Arif

Brief Answer: Oxyn 24 is given normal ovulation Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX I apologize for the late response; I was away from my computer due to unavoidable reasons. Coming back to your question, Oxyn-24 Capsules contains all the essential vitamins and antioxidents required for normal ovulation. This medication wont help in regularizing the periods, but will help in proper ovulation and also for helping in early conception. OVIGYN - DSR contains dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)which is usually given for patients who have decreased ovarian reserve. Your treating doctor might have thought in this line before prescribing this medication. Also DHEA improves ovarian function, increases pregnancy chances and by reducing aneuploidy, lowers miscarriage rates. Only medication which is given for regularizing your periods is Novelon. Again to get regular periods you need to have normal ovarian function and normal endometrium (lining of uterus). Regarding not getting periods could be due to thyroid abnormality or due to PCOS, kindly continue taking thyroid medication. Novelon will help you in this present cycle. I personally feel you need to undergo diagnostic lapaoroscopy and laparoscopic ovarian drilling if it is not done earlier. If everything is normal you need tablets for ovulation induction with clomiphene citrate for the coming cycle and timed intercourse or IUI (intra uterine insemination) depending on your husbands semen report. Please ask if you have more questions. If you are satisfied, please make sure that your ACCEPT my answer so that I receive credit. Good luck!!
