Polystic ovaries and Pregnancy
According to the archives on health24, symptons of Polystic Ovaries are: irregular or no periods, acne, obesity and excessive hair growth.

I do not have and never had any of the above four.My periods have always been regular and on time.Never missed one!
Went to gynae because trying to find out why I am not falling pregnant. Had an ultrasound picture showing small multiple cysts.Gynae told me it was Polystic Ovaries. Subsequent to that had an op to burn the cysts.

Gynae put me on clomid. Was my condition realy polystic ovarian syndrome?What could be the problem?Am I ovulating? I am still not falling pregnant.

While the symptoms listed are common in PCOS, many women are asymptomatic and have the finding on ultrasound. Another feature is not falling pregnant due to anovulation. Now that you have had the treatment, you should be chceked to see whether or not you are ovulating.
