Hi doctor,

Today I am in the 48th day of my cycle. I have PCOS. Still I did not get my periods. I took HPT on 45th day. It was negative. Tomorrow I am planning to take blood test. Currently I am taking Glycomet 500 mg. Is there any chance for positive blood test? Is HPT accurate? Suppose if I get my periods I am planning to follow paleo diet. Is paleo diet recommended for PCOD weight loss?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Chance for pregnancy depends on status of ovulation. If ovulation has occurred, normally there is 25-30% chance of pregnancy.
  • HPT (home pregnancy test) is fairly about 99% accurate in predicting pregnancy if done in 14 days after ovulation.
  • If done before that, it can give false negative result. If you ovulated late, there is a possibility of false negative result, which can be detected by blood test.
  • Any diet which reduces weight is helpful in PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome); Paleo diet is no exception to that.
  • For conception, my advice would be to consult gynecologist, if pregnancy does not happen in this cycle, for ovulation induction. It is simple and far more rewarding.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • All of your reports except FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) are normal.
  • FSH value of less than 10 mIU/mL indicates reduced ovarian reserve, which is not consistent with clinical picture.
  • My advice in this scenario will be to get one transvaginal scan (if possible) done on day two or three of menses and do one blood test AMH anti-mullerian hormone, to rule out reduced ovarian reserve.
  • Further management will depend on the results of these two tests.
