Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I had a medical abortion before three months. I have PCOD problem. I took Ubiphene tablet in after three months from day 2 of my period. I took a follicular scan on day 10th, and I was found to have a cyst in my RO measuring 0.12 ft cm and two follicles in my LO measuring 0.03 ft. I had a scan on day 12th, and my cyst in RO reduced in size to 0.07 ft. And, I had one follicle on my RO measuring 0.03 ft and one follicle in my left ovary measuring 0.04 ft. What is my chance for ovulation?

Answered by Dr. Prathap

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com. As you have got PCOD (polycystic ovarian disease), it is very difficult to say the dominant follicle in your case. Usually, it is the dominant follicle that releases the ovum on day 14th of your cycle. As per your scan, it seems that all the things are not dominant follicles (no dominant follicle is present). But, we cannot surely say that there will be no ovulation. The chances are less. You continue on your treatment for PCOD. Hopefully, positive things will happen.

Hi doctor,

What will be the treatment for PCOD? I am not taking any tablet for PCOD.

Answered by Dr. Prathap

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com. Considering your PCOD concern, it led me to think you might already be undergoing treatment for it. Treatment typically involves the use of oral contraceptive pills, which need to be taken daily. To accurately address PCOD, an in-person examination is necessary to identify features such as facial hair, altered muscle mass, and menstrual irregularities. Confirmatory investigations like abdominal ultrasound and tests measuring serum FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone), LH (luteinizing hormone), among others, are essential before initiating treatment. For appropriate management, I recommend seeking an in-person consultation to determine the right course of action for your PCOD.
