Our expert says:
It is important to note that the ‘so called’ periods that you get every one or two months is not strictly speaking a true period but rather a break through bleed which is characteristic of PCOS with ovulatory dysfunction. Therefore before starting any ovulation induction therapy you need to regulate your cycle by means of the oral contraceptive pill even if this is only for a very short period of 1 month only. There are several ovulation induction therapies available but the simplest is the use of oral Clomiphene citrate (clomid, fertimid, serophene, etc). This should be combined with ovulation monitoring using the urine LH ovulation testing kits such as Clearplan. This will enable you to time intercourse more accurately and thereby enhance your fertility potential. It is also important that you use ovulation induction agents under supervision of a qualified practitioner.
