OBGYN 's  Response
The medication you are using at present is good enough to treat PCOD and hypothyroidism with proper monitoring and adjustment of doses. You did not say if you developed this pain after treatment with Clomiphene. The cause of the pain should be properly evaluated as you have pain in the leg also which is unusual with endometrioma. Ovarian endometrioma in itself does not impede the fertility unless the tubes or peritoneum are involved. You should approach an experienced infertility specialist and get treated. Meanwhile try to maintain a healthy weight and healthy diet. Hope this information is useful. Take care.

Thanks for writing to us.
Since you are already having low thyroid hormone levels and PCOD with suspected endometriosis, spontaneous conception is less likely. You can take the help of assisted reproductive techniques for conception.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. You can consult me again directly through my profile URL
