Question: I m 27 and trying to conceive since six months. Have been married for 2.8 years and have not used any form of contraception.Had thyroid and was taking eltroxin 25. Got my basal hormonal assay done on 5th day of menses. The levels are as follows FSH/5.2, LH/3.94, Estradiol/57, TSH/1.7 and increased prolactin/37.

Brief Answer:
Taking Duoluton will cause regular periods.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
To control the raised prolactin levels, cabergolin is needed. The raised prolactin levels are associated with delayed periods. Your gynecologist has given you Duoluton so that you have regular periods for three months and till then your prolactin levels will also com back to normal. The chances of conception in these three months with raised prolactin levels are less. You can avoid taking Duoluton I but be prepared for delayed periods.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.

Brief Answer:
You can avoid duoluton L.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
If your periods are regular then you can avoid Duoluton L. Rest of the hormones are normal. You can conceive naturally. Do have a regular intercourse during the fertile period.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.

Brief Answer:
8th to 15th August.

Detailed Answer:
If there is a dominant follicle in left ovary then the chances of conception are present. It is best to have a daily intercourse from day 11 till day 18 in this cycle. Do start having a regular intercourse from 8th August till 15th August.
