Dear mb

The presence or absence of cysts on ultrasound scanning is just one factor in the diagnosis of polycystic ovarian syndrome. Even though the cysts may have so-called disappeared or have diminished it is very likely that the other metabolic factors remain and hence ovulatory dysfunction may not have been completely resolved. Hence the use of clomid may still be necessary to induce ovulation and achieve conception.
