Have mild pcos, and irregular periods trying to conceive from 2 yrs, should I first treat pcos before going for laproscopy?

Definitely: There is no reason to proceed with laproscopy at this time.

I have mild pcos and irregular periods trying to conceive, is there a possibility that my tubes are blocked?

I have mild pcos and irregular periods trying to conceive, is there a possibility that my tubes are blocked?

PCOS and PID: If you had pid, you may have damaged your fallopian tubes and getting pregnant naturally may be a problem. Therefore, you need to get them checked out before doing anything else. If the tubes are blocked, it may not matter about the other issues as there is a lower chance for getting pregnant. If they are open, then you may need to take medications to get you to ovulate consistently. ...Read more

I am a 26 female, irregular periods, trying to conceive. I am having weird cramping and had a severe cramp on my right side early am. Pregnant?

Could be: I hope so! you should check a home pregnancy test. If it is positive, and/or if the pain continues/worsens and/or if you start bleeding, you should consider seeing your doctor for more testing (blood pregnancy/hormonal testing, possibly ultrasound). Dont ignore significant pain for too long, because rarely it could signal something worrisome, like a miscarriage or an ectopic pregnancy. Good luck! ...Read more

Irregular periods & trying to conceive again. Last 2 periods were 45 days apart. Calculated ovulation for july 28th. Spotting/bleeding about a week?

Not ovulating : Most physicians would believe you're probably not ovulating if your periods are 45 days apart. If you want to confirm ovulation without physician involvement, why not try ovulation prediction kits available at a pharmacy. If this pattern continues and/or if you're not ovulating, i would seek medical evaluation. ...Read more

I have irregular periods and trying to conceive, how can I get my periods regular so that I can conceive?

Hard to say.: Irregular periods don't always mean you will have problems conceiving. Most women don't have identical cycle lengths every month. If you are very irregular, get checked to see if you have a hormonal imbalance or other problem that needs treatment. It is always smart to have a good physical and appropriate lab work before getting pregnant to be sure all is well and you are healthy first. ...Read more

I had irregular periods.Im trying to conceive.When will I do pregnancy test?My last periods was on 13th sept.

Tricky to say: Irregular cycles usually mean irregular egg release (ovulation). A blood test should be positive 10-12 days after ovulation. If you are not sure when you ovulated then the day to test is tricky. Eventually if you are pregnant then you will not bleed and the test will become positive. You may need a specialist to help you understand and treat the problem. Best wishes. ...Read more

I've been trying to conceive for a while now and I am struggling. I had an abortion in 2013. I have irregular periods?

Trying to conceive: Your abortion likely has nothing to do with your struggling to conceive - abortion does not affect fertility. Rather, it is likely because of irregular periods. If you have irregular periods, it may be more difficult to become pregnant. You should see a gynecologist to be evaluated. You may need bloodwork. You can also try using an ovulation predictor kit to time intercourse. ...Read more
