Hi XXXXXXX thanks for your query. I read your query and I understand your concerns. Following is my reply : 1) Vitex pill is known to cause giddiness and other symptoms you have mentioned. Hence i request you to stop the medicine immediately. 2) Your irregular cycles are probably due to a condition called polycystic ovary (PCO). 3) Recommend you to get an ultrasound scan to decide about follicles in your ovary to confirm PCO condition. 4) Along with this I suggest semen analysis of your husband to check sperm count. 5) Please get back to me with above 2 reports after which I will recommend treatment based on these reports. I hope I answered your query. Please get back to me if any more queries. Regards, Dr. Mahesh Koregol. IVF & Infertility Specialist

Hi,I am a 31 y/o currently seeing an infertility doctor for my husbands low sperm count. We know we have to do ivf/icsi and we've already paid for it. I went to my clinic for day 2 and 3 testing and they cancelled our cycle b/c they said that I have elevated FSH levels. They said it happens sometimes and that I could just be stressed. They told me to come back next cycle and try again. Could this mean I could be going through early menopause or premature ovarian failure? Are there other tests they could do before getting a definitive answer?
