Thank you for your question. PCOD stands for polycystic ovarian disease. This is a lifestyle illness resulting in upset hormone balance with increased risks of diabetes and high blood pressure layer in life. An earlier presentation is the presence of excess weight, irregular periods, excess hair growth and increased tummy fat. All these result in making the ovary ( your reproductive organ that produces eggs that allow you to have a baby) resistant to releasing an egg each month. This is ovulation ( releasing an egg from the ovary) When you have sex your partner releases sperm into your vagina. The bestbmotile sperm rapidly go into the uterus and tubes where an egg can be fertilised (if it has been released by the ovary). The meeting of the egg and sperm to form one call is called fertilisation. Sex has nothing to do with pcod. You can improve the health of your ovaries by doing regular exercise, eating fresh fruit and vegetables, avoiding bakery products and bringing your weight under control. Certain anti oxidants can also help. Please speak to your gynaecologist. Best wishes
