Ive been told by three different doctors that i have rock-bottom levels of estrogen and sky-high levels of progesterone due to my ovaries refusing to ovulate every month. Which in turn produces skipped periods and menopausal symptoms during the off months.
I asked my doc about this but they told me that when that time comes we will discuss it. Id like to know now if possible… would something like this, left untreated, cause problems with fertility?
Anyone out there have, or know someone who had, a similar problem and conceive naturally?

If you aren’t ovulating, then you can’t get pregnant.
If you are ovulating occasionally, it will be difficult to conceive but not impossible.
I don’t think that not treating it will make it worse, but your doctors should really be trying to help you figure out *why* this is happening to begin with! I’m surprised they don’t care. If your hormones are out of whack, it can cause a plethora of other problems.
I hope you can get some answers!

@MrsWinTraining2014: I don’t think it could cause further problems, but like PP said you can’t get pregnant if you don’t ovulate. I, too, would think your Dr. should be helping you find some answers. I would either call back or find a doctor willing to help you.

@MrsWinTraining2014: It sounds like you will probably need to take hormones to assist with ovulation when you are ready to TTC. The only concern I would have is what the effect of waiting to TTC will have on your chances of success. The good news is that if you ovulte on occasion then you have a better chance of conceiving than if you weren’t ovulating at all.

I had this problem, but I lost a lot of weight and got my PCOS under control before I conceived. So I am not sure if I am really the answer you want or not. Either way, I wish you luck! I am very confident they can do things to help you ovulate more regularly, so that’s good news! I know you might not want any type of inventions, but it may be needed to get to your end goal. Good luck!

The only thing my doctors have done is give me birth control pills which did not work, and provera, which only worked for the time i was taking them. Once i stopped taking them, it went right back.
Thanks for all the advice. They did do some tests though and i know for sure i dont have PCOS or endometriosis.
