Today, I visited my gyno with concerns about my (once again) abnormal period, annual exam, and to express interest in help getting pregnant.
First, let me give a bit of my history: I have been diagnosed with PCOS, although hormone levels were all within normal range when tested. Ultrasound revealed cysts on ovaries. The Dr. that made this discovery felt that it was not PCOS because hormones were normal, however my new Dr. believes it is PCOS because I exhibit other symptoms, such as unwanted hair and irregular menstrual periods.
My question is this; as I said I went to my Dr. today and told her that my husband and I are looking to get pregnant and have been trying on our own since January (no luck obviously). She instructed me to take Provera 10 days of the month starting today to stimulate my period. Of course I did not think of these questions while at her office, but how would Progesterone help me to conceive? I'm just curious about the science behind it and what likelihood of pregnancy exists while taking Provera.
That being said, if somehow Provera will help with becoming pregnant, when is the best time to try? Do we focus on the time that I'm taking the Provera, or after my period?
I'll be sure to ask my Dr. these questions as well but it would be nice to have additional information. Thanks so much!View Thread
