It can take specialized medications to get you to ovulate but usually pregnancy is able to be achieved. The fibroid can cause problems with early pregnancy if the pregnancy were to implant over the fibroid. It might be wise to have the fibroid removed before attempting pregnancy. ...Read more

I'm 27 years old married (2 year) girl. I m dignosed with pcos. I gained wait. 68 kg(5 ft 1 inch-hight). Can i get pregnant naturally?

Possibly: One of the more common symptoms of pcos is lack of ovulation. This lack of ovulation leads to the infertility problems. However, every now and then, but very unpredictable, an egg may mature and you ovulate. If this does happen, you can get pregnant "naturally". More often, though, is that you need treatment which may include things like weight loss and/or medications that promote ovulation. ...Read more

Hi i have 6cm cyst right ovary&19 follicles left ovary(pcos).can i start clomid.i have had these for 3yrs no issues.dr wont remove?

No: It would be best to have 6cm cyst removed to increase chances of pregnancy. There is more to starting clomid than just knowing your follicle count. You would need many other tests on both partners first to ensure you are a good candidate. You should discuss further with your obgyn. ...Read more
