Brief Answer: she is not pregnant Detailed Answer: Hello Sravan, I have read your query and seen the uploaded reports. Your wife is not pregnant. She has a endometrium lining of 17mm and polycystic pattern of left ovary. This is the cause for her delayed period and not pregnancy. Her scan report indicate that there is increased stimulation of the endometrium or the lining of the uterus, along with cysts in the ovary. This simply means a hyperoestrogenic state. If I were her treating doctor, I would prescribe her progesterone pills like Regestrone 10mg thrice daily for five days. Within about 7 to 10 days of stopping the drug, your wife would get her periods. Now, it is important to treat this endometrium and the cystic ovary. Please consult a gynecologist, where in she can go on treatment with hormonal pills to regularize her menstrual cycle. Hope this helps you. Let me know if you have more queries. Regards,
