Hi,
Thanks for asking.
PCOS is a condition with disturbed ovulation ... due to hormonal imbalance.Treatment is aimed at correcting the hormonal imbalance & ovulation stimulation
Letrozole has off label use as a ovulation inducing agent ...the action is not guaranteed in some stages of condition & need change of dosage & duration of giving the medicine,
Duphaston short course results in withdrawal bleeding within 8-10 days of last Duphaston pill ... the time may be any day of 8 days... so wait for the time you would get it.
primary treatment of pcod consists of regulation of menstruation with cyclical hormones/ ovulation induction with increasing dosages of stimulator medicine/ surgical treatment ... depending on response to various treatments.
