Our expert says:
The use of the pill will only control the menstrual irregularity that accompany the polycystic ovarian syndrome but will not eliminate or cure the condition. In order to conceive it may be necessary to actively induce ovulation either by means of tablets or by means of injectables. Other associated treatments may also be necessary such as dietary control as well as the use of insulin sensitises, should insulin resistance be diagnosed through blood tests. This is particularly the case were the polycystic ovarian syndrome is accompanied by an underlying associated metabolic syndrome.
