PCOD and Infertility

Poly Cystic Ovarian Disorder (PCOD) is a chronic disorder in which a woman’s hormones are out of balance. It results in irregular menstrual cycle and can be a cause of infertility.

Continuous irregular menstrual and ignorance of women towards it might directly proportionate to infertility. Most of the women think irregular periods are normal and have no link with infertility. But, it is not true. Irregular periods might be due to the PCOD.

Women need to take cyclical treatment for few months before regularizing the cycle. On encountering the situation, women might panic and rummage through internet to find weapons to fight the disorder. However, adapting innumerable methods and allow too much stress to sit in your brain might result in adverse situations. So, when women discover that PCOD came in a package with infertility handle the situation.

Routine appointments, gratuitous medications and no results are the basic cause of losing hope in the treatment.

To fight the condition, first of all, women need NOT to allow permeation of stress in their lives. At Pahlajani Clinic, we keep our patients informed about symptoms and causes of every disease. 

First, women need to understand PCOD more than the medical terminology. It is important because, scheduling menstrual cycle depends upon the regime. Start scheduling progesterone hormone yourself by avoiding frequent visits to doctor. 

Or else, every missed period would give you an illusion about pregnancy and negative test would want you to visit a doctor.  

So, when you miss a period and find pregnancy test negative, start regular dose of medications to regularize periods and taking progesterone medication is the normal medication. It is medroxyprogesterone acetate, and available under the names of various brands including Regesterone, Provera and Delvry. It is prescribed to take 5 mg tablets twice a day for 5 days. Generallym between 2-7 days after the last tablet intake, you would get a ‘withdrawal bleeding’.

Patients might fear the side-effects of monthly treatment and regular medication. But, it is important to understand that these medications have no harmful effects and are safe.
PCOD is a chronic problem like diabetes and it needs regular hormonal support. Even if you take these doses accidently during pregnancy, it would not pose any problem.
