Our expert says:
The most likely cause of irregular cycles is the possibility of ovulatory dysfunction. This in turn maybe secondary to recent weight gain and insulin resistance, which maybe accompanied by polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). If this is the case then a good weight loss program resulting in at least 8kgs of weight loss may be all that is necessary to bring back your ovulation. If after the weight loss there is still no pregnancy then simple ovulation induction again may be all that is required to obtain a pregnancy. The proviso it that all other factors such as sperm factors and tubal factors would be considered to be normal and the only problem in this instance is deemed to be ovulatory dysfunction.
