Hi, I am having pcod and TTC. My gynec has adviced to take Letroze 2.5mg from D3-D7, Progynova 2mg from D5-D11 and Duphaston 200 from D16-D25. But as i was having severe headache doc has stopped duphaston on D19. Later i had some spotting on D21 n D22. Then doc has suggested Susten 200. Today is my 36th day. (My period wad not regular, but it varies from 35-40 days). Today i had 2 drops of dark brown spotting. Yet to do a pregnancy test. Today when i spoke to my doc she has adviced to stop susten and wait for few days. I would like to check wit u as second opinion wit u. Can i take this as confirmation for pregnancy or not. I am having symptoms of pregnancy but no leg cramps which i usually get brfore my periods.

Brief Answer: WAIT FOR A WEEK, THEN TAKE A PREGNANCY TEST. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing to us with your health concern. The spotting you had earlier was due to sudden stoppage of Duphaston most probably. You definitely do not have any sign or symptom with which to confirm the pregnancy. You have PCOD and a history of irregular cycles, and delayed cycles, so this menstrual delay could be because of PCOD. You should stop taking Susten, and then wait for a week. If you do not have your periods by then, then take a pregnancy test. All the best. Please feel free to discuss further.
