My doctor said my reports are normal. I am trying to conceive more than 3 years.never taken any medications to conceive in past 3 years. Because I thought my husband may have problem.

Brief Answer:
Can be hormonal disturbance.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Thanks for posting your query.

The medicine that was given to you was to induce an ovulation. The multiple follicles suggest polycystic ovaries. This is not related to medicines that you took.

May be that you developed this problem in last few months. This needs further evaluation to find the cause.

I hope this answers your query.

In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Wishing you good health.

Regards.

Brief Answer:

Delay is due to formation of cyst.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Thanks for writing again.

The delay in periods is due to no ovulation and formation of a cyst. Even if your periods are regular it does not guarantee that ovulation has happened in every cycle.

In a normal healthy female there are 13 cycles in one year and ovulation happens 10-12 times in a year.

The hormone tests on day 2 are normal.

Hope my answer is helpful.

Take care.
