Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
PCOD is polycystic ovarian disease in which there are multiple cysts present in the ovary. There is difficulty in ovulation and you get periods after 2-3 months that too with a heavy flow. It is due to hormonal disbalance and treatment reduces the problem to a large extent.

hi dear,PCOD might not interfere with your fertility at all and yet at the other end of the spectrum might definitely be responsible for a rigid infertility, but don't worry at this stage as there are many fertility enhancing drugs available for this.

PCOD can be treated with medicines like kanchanara guggulu,vriddivadhika vati with asokarista. Undergo therpies like virechana,uttarabasti. Take lot of vegetables and fruits. Drink plenty of warm water and keep your bowels clean. If you have irregular periods,take rajahpravarthini vati.

I am f 36 yrs old. History of PCOS. Weight problem but otherwise healthy. For the last few days I have been experiencing not pain but a very bovious discomfort in my upper left abdominal area. It can become worse after eating but not always. My upper left abdomen is harder than normal most of the time. I have not had a period since 14 nov 2010 which is not unheard of with my polycystic ovarian disease. All preg tests say negative. It is very uncomfotable to lie on my left hand side in bed since this all began about 5 days ago.
