Hi,
Thanks for writing to HCM .

In your case I suggest you to get your thyroid profile done and serum prolactin levels checked.

These abnormality in hormones causes disturbed cycles and ovulation.
Mean while get ultrasound done to know you have poly cystic ovary disease(pcos).If you have then treatment will be accordingly.

For your non ovulation you will be given clomephine citrate from day 2/3 for 5 days. Discuss this with you doctor.
With this drug you need to get your follicular study to know size and when it will be ruptured.

Approximately from day 8 oestrogen tablet will be started so that your endometrium is well developed . After rupture of your follicle I would suggest you to go for IUI I.e intrauterine ingestion of sperms as this will increase chances of conception.

Before IUI you need to get your tubal patency done. Approximately after 1 day of rupture of follicle progesterone tablet will be started as it will help in implantation and maintaince of initial pregnancy. This is routine treatment protocol .

Hope I have been helpful .

Regards
Dr.Deepika Patil
