Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am 27 years now. Two years back I was diagnosed with PCOS. My weight is 132 lbs 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?

Answered by Dr. Deepika Joshi

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.

Patient's Query

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?

Answered by Dr. Deepika Joshi

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.

Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

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

Answered by Dr. Deepika Joshi

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

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.

Patient's Query

Thank you doctor,

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

Answered by Dr. Deepika Joshi

No, you are not infertile.

Patient's Query

Thank you doctor,

In what sense? Is there any chance of getting pregnant with this problem?

Answered by Dr. Deepika Joshi

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

No, you are not infertile. Yes, you will conceive.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
