Yes, many women with PCOS conceive well but may need some assistance. Most of them conceive after simple things like weight control and exercise. In other women, drugs may be needed.

Doctors I'm very tensed. I'm 34 weeks pregnant. and my cervix is 1.5 cm and 40% effaced. Came to know in the internal examination. Also I'm suffering from vaginal infection and Dr. has prescribed 7 days pessaries. I just want to know that how many chances are there that may go in to full term labor? Please reply.

MBBS, MCCEE, Fellowship in Sexual Medicine

Pessaries are notorious for causing infection as they stay wet for long time inside. They should be avoided. Show yourself to nearby good Gynecologist and take treatment. As for labour, it usually happens when time is ripe. So do not get uselessly worried. Relaxxx. It is important.

Why do you get PCOS?

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, FMAS, DMAS
Gynaecologist, Noida
Why do you get PCOS?

Polycystic ovarian syndrome is the condition when a woman's sex hormone levels get imbalanced. This can cause women to have irregular periods and may also have an impact on their fertility. Women suffering from PCOS also tend to grow small cysts in their ovaries which can also lead to severe health problems like diabetes and heart disease, if left untreated.

What causes PCOS?

The exact cause of PCOS is not known. However, the condition may be triggered by hormonal imbalances and genetic factors. Women are more susceptible to developing this condition if their mother or a female family member also has the condition. Excessive production of androgen, which is a male sex hormone, may also lead to this condition. Women suffering from PCOS tend to have high levels of androgen. The formation of eggs and their release during ovulation can be delayed by high levels of androgen. High androgen levels may result from excess insulin present in the blood. Poor lifestyle and irregular eating habits contribute to obesity which intern leads to increased insulin resistance and hence delayed ovulation and irregular cycles leading to infertility.

What are the symptoms of PCOS?


The type of symptom in case of PCOS varies from person to person. Since PCOS is characterized by low levels of sex hormones, this condition may lead to symptoms such as:

- Excessive hair growth on stomach, face, chest, toes and thumbs
- The breast size starts to shrink
- There is a change in voice, making it deeper
- There is excessive loss of hair from your scalp
- Sometimes the face is filled with acne and the skin turns oily
- There are fertility problems like having trouble in ovulating or recurring miscarriages
- Frequent depression or mood swings
- Facing breathings problems while sleeping
- Obesity

Hymen is not important and one can not decide from that. However one's reactions, body language, interaction may give some clues which are never sure.

Hi lybrate user, ask her to get a urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. If pregnancy test is positive then pregnancy can be terminated with medications.

My wife did not got her period in last month her date is 21 But when she checked on pregnancy test kit the result is negative she checked twice and result is negative.

Hi, the ideal way to perform the test over 1 week of expected menstrual date when there is release of human chorionic gonadotropin hormone in the urine. So, better to take help from a gynaecologist to rule out any other possibilities.

Morally not advisable to have this type of sex. This is stealing the confidence of brother. Stop it immediately and apologies from the lady with folded hands. As long as she is using copper t no problem of conception.

I am 6 weeks pregnant. I never knew flaxseed are unsafe in early pregnancy. I have been taking grounded flaxseed daily. Please help if that can cause any side effect?

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, FMAS, DMAS
Gynaecologist, Noida
Hello, the seeds are known to act as estrogen and stimulate contractions and menstruation. This makes it highly dangerous during your initial stages of pregnancy. It is mainly advised for menopausal women to maintain natural oestrogen balance but in reproductive age group there is no actual requirement of flax seed as oestrogen is not required at all in excess and pregnancy is being maintained by progesterone, so any discrepancy may cause even threatened abortions in early pregnancy. So best to avoid. Regards.

Hello, I am breastfeeding now to my 6 six months baby. I had a unprotected intercourse last night and now I am worried about taking any emergency contraceptive pills which may impacts milk production. Could anyone suggest any best pills during breastfeeding which will available in Indian market. Thank you very much for your time. Regards

No such safe pill is there, so we advise you to rather wait for your due date and only if you are tested positive for pregnancy you may carry on with the pills.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Vaginal muscles are usually elastic. It adjusts to any situation and usually be tight around. Vaginal looseness occurs at old age. Kegal exercise is considered effective to keep the vaginal muscles tight. Take care.

Dear Kiran Raj, These symptoms are also pre-mensural. Since intercourse is new to her body, and the physical stress of being newly married, changes like there can happen. she may be tired, weak or simply nervous. Make sure she eats well, takes proper rest and take some safe tonic like chavanprash, dates, milk etc. Wait for 15 days to see if she is pregnant or otherwise. best of luck.
