Our expert says:
Weight loss by itself will in many instances of moderate to mild PCOS result in spontaneous return to ovulation and fertility. Therefore I would advise you to stop the Minerva and try the natural option for at least 3 months during which time you should record your menstrual cycles accurately and also use the urine LH ovulation testing kits to determine if ovulation is occurring or not. This will additionally assist in timing intercourse appropriately and optimize your chances of conception. If after 3 months a problem has been noted or no pregnancy has occurred you should consider using ovulation induction tablets such as Clomiphene citrate (Clomid, Fertomid Serophene, etc.) together with the ovulation detection kits for a period of 3 months after which I would recommend you see your fertility specialist.
