Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community with your concern if you could be pregnant.

When were you diagnosed with PCOD? Are you currently being treated?

Polycystic ovary disease (PCOD) is also called polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

It is a common endocrine system disorder among women of reproductive age. Women with PCOS may have enlarged ovaries that contain small collections of fluid — called follicles — located in each ovary as seen during an ultrasound exam.

Infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods, excess hair growth, acne, and obesity can all occur in women with polycystic ovary syndrome. In adolescents, infrequent or absent menstruation may raise suspicion for the condition.

Anonymous, having PCOD/PCOS can make infertility more likely. That can explain why you have not been able to become pregnant.

Speak with your gynecologist, who knows you and can advise you.

Polycystic ovary syndrome treatment generally focuses on management of your individual main concerns, such as infertility, hirsutism, acne or obesity.

If you're trying to become pregnant, you may need a medication to help you ovulate. Clomiphene (Clomid, Serophene) is an oral anti-estrogen medication that you take in the first part of your menstrual cycle. If clomiphene alone isn't effective, your doctor may add metformin to help induce ovulation.

If you don't become pregnant using clomiphene and metformin, your doctor may recommend using gonadotropins — follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) medications that are administered by injection. Another medication that your doctor may have you try is letrozole (Femara). Doctors don't know exactly how letrozole works to stimulate the ovaries, but it may help with ovulation when other medications fail.

When taking any type of medication to help you ovulate, it's important that you work with a reproductive specialist and have regular ultrasounds to monitor your progress and avoid problems.

Anonymous, as to whether or not you could be pregnant, take a home pregnancy test. For the most accurate result, test in the morning. Use the urine when you first wake up and use the bathroom. Consider buying a name brand, early response test.

Hope this is helpful information,
