Brief Answer: Regular periods indicate regular ovulation. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX, Thank you for the reply. As you are getting regular periods, it means definitely there is regular ovulation. Without ovulation it can lead to ANOVULATORY periods, where there is no regular release of ovum. I still doubt you have PCOS, because to diagnose PCOS there should be irregular periods, scan showing poly cystic ovaries and hormonal evaluation is abnormal. As you are taking Homeopathic medicines, its difficult to comment on that. As you are trying for baby, I suggest you to consult a OBGY specialist, they might advise you hormonal evaluation which I mentioned you earlier, also semen analysis of your husband. After clinical and blood evaluation you might be given medication for ovulation induction. Kindly have sexual intercourse during the fertile period i.e day 12 to day 16th of menstrual cycle. Please ask if you have more questions. If you are satisfied, please make sure that your ACCEPT my answer so that I receive credit. Good luck!!
