Polycystic ovary syndrome is a bad name for any condition that includes infertility and irregular periods. There is a classic ultrasound finding that is consistent with polycystic ovaries, but PCOS is definitely NOT ruled out, or even in by this finding. An isolated elevated testosterone level also does not rule in or out PCOS. If you are having irregular periods, in addition to infertility, you probably DO have PCOS. The important thing to consider is what medications will help you ovulate regularly so that you can conceive. A combination of Clomid and Metformin was shown to produce the best results in a recent study.
I have also been diagnosed with PCOS and my midwife put me on Provera (tablets). I'm supposed to take a pregnancy test and if it's negative take Provera for five days to start my period. But if I'm trying to get pregnant and have irregular periods, how do I know when to test without it being too early? Will Provera harm an existing pregnancy?
