hey im 26 years and i have pco,my doctor put me on postoval for 3 months to regulate my period.i need to know if its ok to take postoval while ttc and will i still be ovulating while on this meds.and also i have bad pains on my lower left abdominal and my doctor says its nothing but they worry me too much.please help me,thanx.
Postoval contains estrogen and progesterone and is used to regulate cycles or for perimenopausal symptoms such as hot flushes. If you DO conceive, you should stop it immediately, although it is unlikely to cause birth defects. It will regulate your cycles, but it won't help you get pregnant. If you were my patient, I would switch you to something like Clomid or Femara. These medications will help you to ovulate and help you to conceive.
Pain in the left can be due to gastrointestinal problems, such as irritable bowel syndrome. It could also be caused by something like endometriosis or an ovarian cyst.
If you were my patient, I would do an ultrasound to check the ovaries, and possibly also a laparoscopy to rule out endometriosis and/or scar tissue around the fallopian tubes.
I hope this helps!
