Hello doctor,

My vagina has cysts and a cut on the inside. I have PCOS and the cysts never hurt until now. I also never have a regular period. And I want to know how I can increase my chance of getting pregnant.



Welcome to

If you are planning to get pregnant at this time, you would need assistance from Ob-Gyn. She can give you pills like Progesterone to regulate your menses and have you bleed regularly. By doing this, timing interval when to appropriately have an intercourse would lead to better chance of conception.

Once she has established your bleeding pattern, for a month or two, she can give you fertility pills. This are Clomiphene pils which will stimulate your ovaries to actually produce an egg or help you ovulate. Because you have to understand that PCOS patients have difficulty getting pregnant because they do not have regular periods and they do not ovulate.
