Hello doctor,

I am 27 years now. Two years back I was diagnosed with PCOS. My weight is 60 kg now. I consumed Met PCO care and Ginette 35 for the last two years. Here I am attaching my last USG report. I want to know if I will able to get pregnant or not and moreover, what is the last age for getting pregnant with this problem? Are these medicines good for me? Should I stop consuming all these medicines?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Stop Ginette (Ethinyl Estradiol) if you want to plan. You can continue with Met PCO care (D-Chiro-Inositol and Methylfolate). Do some lifestyle and dietary modifications. Stop junk food. Lose some weight. You will conceive. Fertility usually starts decreasing after 30 but people do conceive at an age of 45 even. Just relax and you can go for ovulation induction if ovulation does not occur normally.

Thank you doctor,

Is my PCOD condition little or fatal? What will be the normal condition if PCOD is cured? In which level does my PCOD belong? Moderate or serious? Does it indicate infertility? Am I infertile because of this?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

PCOD is never fatal. Yes, it may cause infertility but it can be taken care of. Stop Ginette. Get a few investigations like serum TSH, prolactin, LH, FSH on day two of periods empty stomach. Husband's semen analysis. Monitoring of ovulation by ultrasound and timed intercourse once the follicle reaches a size of 18 to 20 mm.

Hi doctor,

Thanks a lot. One more question. In which stage does my PCOD belong? Is it in moderate, little or very serious?

Hi,

There is no such staging of PCOS. Lose your weight and dietary restrictions. The patient with PCOS is more prone to develop diabetes, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia. So, restrict fat and sugar in the diet.

Thank you doctor,

According to the USG reports, am I infertile? Is there any chance of getting pregnant?
