Brief Answer:
Establish ovulation through follicular monitoring.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting your query.

I would like to know why you are taking Meprate every month, if you have regular monthly cycles even without it and if any investigations have been done.

You need to establish the presence of ovulation to plan a treatment strategy. Around the period of ovulation, you need to have intercourse at least on alternate days. In a regular cycle, ovulation occurs two weeks prior to the onset of the next menstruation. Follicular study can help you follow the ovulation timing.

Hope you query has been clarified. Please feel free to contact for further clarifications. I will be happy to help.

I am Saudamini pawar. We are trying for baby from two years. Sir first i had ultrasound scan. then doctor told me that there is no sign of pcod . Then i gone through laproscopy procedure. After that doctor told me that size of ovaries was large so i reduced that size by puncturing ovaris with needle . But after laproscopy in next month my follicular study was not satisfactory. On 14th day size of right ovary was 16mm. Doctor specified no size for left ovary and size of ET was 5mm. Before laproscopy my follicular study was good. but now i ma facing problem. So is there any possibility of wrong laproscopy........? I am worried about my left ovary. Because i think that egg is not produced in this month by left ovary.
