Ask a Gynaecologist and Get Answers to Your OB/GYN Questions ASAP
Hello. This is Dr Geyik and I will be assisting you today.
Can I please ask your age and if you have a confirmed diagnosis of PCOS?
The treatment generally depends on what symptoms you have.
You can have contraceptive medications to control any period related issues.
You can also have a medication called metformin which is used in PCOS.
Can I ask if you are having regular periods at all?
If you are not having any periods due to PCOS, that means eggs are not released by your ovaries. Therefore, you may benefit from IVF which involves getting the eggs from your ovaries in other ways for the purpose of pregnancy.
Has your doctor talked to you about IVF?
It all depends on whether you are producing and releasing eggs. If you are producing eggs but can't release them due to PCOS, IVF might be only option.
If you are not producing eggs or producing very few eggs, then you can be given medication to boost your ovaries but this should be done by a gynaecologist so you should speak to your GP to refer you for that.
