You are suffering from primary infertility due to PCOS. This can be treated and requires regular follow up and therapy to monitor your body's response to the medication. Your AMH or anti-muellerian hormone levels are higher, which is a sign that your body is not ovulating correctly. Hence the plan of action now will be to do induction and ovulation in next cycle and meanwhile you can start yourself with prenatal vitamins to replenish the body of folate stores for the coming pregnancy and fetus. Take tab. folvite 5mg - once daily for 3 mnths. Consult once you get your periods in the next cycle as discussed.


PCOS

Polycystic ovary syndrome is a problem in which a woman's hormones are out of balance. It can cause problems with your periods and make it difficult to get pregnant.
PCOS also may cause unwanted changes in the way you look. If it isn't treated, over time it can lead to serious health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease. 

Most women with PCOS grow many small cysts  on their ovaries. That is why it is called polycystic ovary syndrome. The cysts are not harmful but lead to hormone imbalances.

Early diagnosis and treatment can help control the symptoms and prevent long-term problems.


Causes of  PCOS

The cause of PCOS is not fully understood, but genetics may be a factor. PCOS seems to run in families, so your chance of having it is higher if other women in your family have it or have irregular periods or diabetes. PCOS can be passed down from either your mother's or father's side.



Symptoms of PCOS

Symptoms tend to be mild at first. You may have only a few symptoms or a lot of them. The most common symptoms are: 
               
  • Acne          
  • Weight gain and trouble losing weight          
  • Extra hair on the face and body: Often women get thicker and darker facial hair and more hair on the chest, belly, and back.          
  •  Thinning hair on the scalp          
  • Irregular periods: Often women with PCOS have fewer than nine periods a year. Some women have no periods. Others have very heavy bleeding.         
  •  Fertility problems: Many women who have PCOS have trouble getting pregnant.          
  • Depression
