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 3.8 cm and two follicles in my LO measuring 1.0 cm and 0.8 cm. I had a scan on day 12th, and my cyst in RO reduced in size to 2.1 cm. And, I had one follicle on my RO measuring 0.8 cm and one follicle in my left ovary measuring 1.2 cm. What is my chance for ovulation?



Welcome to

  • 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.



Welcome back to

  • As you said that you have PCOD problem, I thought you might be taking treatment for it.
  • The treatment for PCOD is oral contraceptive pills, and that has to be taken on daily basis.
  • We have to examine the patient in person for features of PCOD like facial hair, increased muscle built, menstrual problems, etc. One should get it confirmed with investigations like USG abdomen, serum FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone), LH (luteinizing hormone) and other tests and then we will start on treatment.
  • I advise you to take a consultation in person and get the treatment for PCOD.
