Who diagnosed polycystic ovaries? Thanks.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I do ovulate I've been trying to get pregnant and had an ultrasound that said I have polycystic ovaries
Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 3 years ago.
An ultrasound is not a very good way to diagnoses polycycstic ovaries, although it may be correct. The main problem with polycystic ovaries is not ovulating, so if you truly ovulate, I doubt that you have PCOS. The fibroid is unlikely to be much problem.

The thick endometrium might suggest that you don't ovulate, but if you do ovulate, it's unlikely to be a problem.

Most likely you can get pregnant.
