Brief Answer: EXPLAINED BELOW Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing to us with your health concern. Ovigyn D contains DHEAS - it is given to increase your egg formation ! It is not at all given to women with PCOS - women with PCOS already have excess of egg follicles. Am sure there is some mistake, if you have PCOS, you should not be taking Ovigyn ( DHEA ) and if you are given DHEA, you cannot be having PCOS right now. DHEA is given to women with low ovarian reserve. Hair fall, constipation, weight gain , irregular cycles - all are typical of PCOS> PLease get the following investigations done - 1. Pelvic transvaginal ultrasound scan on day 2 of periods. 2. FSH, LH, TSH, Prolactin, OGTT, DHEAS, Free Testosterone, Lipid profile, AMH If PCOS is documented, you can take cyclical progesterone therapy or cyclical oral contraceptive pills ( eg. Krimson ) to regulate your cycles. Metformin also will aid in weight loss. On the other hand if the ovarian reserve is low, cyclical hormones again will regulate periods. MEanwhile, exercise and diet will definitely help. All the best. Please feel free to discuss further.

Brief Answer: EXPLAINED BELOW Detailed Answer: APCOD sachets help in PCOD for sure. Women with PCOD already have high DHEA levels, there in no point in taking Ovigyn ( DHEA ). I still dont understand why it has been prescribed, and do not agree with the prescription. Please ask your doctor to explain in detail .
