5 months ago, I consulted a doctor about the irregularities of my menstruation from the start. She required me to have an ultrasound of my reproductive system. After the operation, I found out I have polycystic ovaries and my endometric lining is only 0.5 cm, which caused menstrual problem. 2 months later I got married and at the moment I'm in trouble about getting pregnant. I think I can't do so. What am I suppose to do now?
Colline--i'm sorry you are having trouble getting pregnant. Often women with irregular menses and pcos can have difficulties conceiving as they often don't ovulate very well. To help improve your ovulation and chances for conceiving, then clomid can be very helpful for women with pcos. Clomid is a 'fertility pill' that is taken by mouth during your period to help. I would recommend that you see a gynecologist who can help with this, if you haven't already. Sometimes women need even more to get pregnant and then they are referred to an infertility specialist. Also, depending on a woman's age, sometimes doctors are more aggressive with women when they are 35 and over as it may take more time to get pregnant. Good luck.

Oh my God! As what I thought, I really can't be pregnant!
Thank you so much doc. Now I know and I'll try to follow what you requested me to do. How I wish I could have a child....To tell you, I really tried. So much thanks to you for answering my question!
I recently had a very light period that last about 5-6 days and day 3-5 were Sooo painful that I almost went to the ER as well. I had protected intercourse about a week before and my mensis are irregular as well. This was my first one in like 6-7 months. Is this a possible sign of pcos?
If you haven't had a regular period in 6-7 months, it could be a sign of pcos as women will often not get a period or only get one every so often. Other signs of pcos can be enlarged ovaries with many follices and excess hair growth on your face/etc. However, there can be other problems related to infrequent periods other than pcos and often the thryoid is checked, a prolactin level checked and a basic exam can help. I would recommend you see a gynecologist for further help.
