Hi doctor,

I am 27 years old. I got married before 1.5 years. I have PCOS since I was young. I remember that I had various types of medication as I did not get my periods regularly in the initial stages. My mother had taken me to many doctors, including ayurveda, homeopathy and allopathy. Before 4 years, my gynecologist prescribed me Ginette 35 and since then, I have been taking this pill. I am now planning for pregnancy and I want to know whether I can just stop taking Ginette 35. Will I be able to conceive naturally? I am also overweight for my height. My height is 5'3" and my weight is 75 kg. I want to have a baby now and want to conceive naturally without any medical treatment. Is that possible?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It is good that you continued Ginette 35 (Cyproterone acetate and Ethinyl estradiol) till date.

Your menses would have been regular after being placed on Ginette 35 till date as I presume.

If you wish to conceive, then you must stop the pills after completing this pack and wait for the withdrawal bleed or menses.

From the next cycle, you may try naturally and also follow up ovulation with ultrasound guided follicular monitoring.

Sometimes, initial 1 or 2 cycles remain annular after prolonged usage of Ginette 35 and resumes by third cycle. But, that varies from woman to woman. So, you may try conception from next cycle and do follow ovulation.

A fresh hormonal profile would be mandatory after a month along with serum fasting insulin levels to check for the insulin resistance as well and present hormonal status.
