User :   if u can help me n prescribe some medicine
Doctor :   you seem to be having some underlying hormonal disturbance
Doctor :   i would first recommend you to go ahead with getting hormonal levels tested
User :   i had menses in a gap of 10 days 3-4 times before since it started at d age of 15
Doctor :   to see what teh exact problem is
Doctor :   such that definitive treatment can be started for correction
Doctor :   rather than treatment for temporary relief
User :   can u prescribe some kind of medicine now
User :   so that it can stop for the time being
User :   n then i'll go for hormone test
Doctor :   since I am not examining you personally and the cause is not confirmed, I cannot prescribe you online. it would be against medical ethics
Doctor :   also the medication might change the hormone pattern too
Doctor :   which will not give accurate results
User :   as i said i had this problem before
Doctor :   please meet a gynecologist in person and get hormonal levels tested by giving blood sample
Doctor :   and starting on medications
User :   i took some hormone for 21 days
User :   for 3 cycles
User :   n i was ok
User :   i dnt remember d name of that medicine
Doctor :   do you mean to say that pills were prescribed to you?
User :   yeah
Doctor :   if yes, then there is possibility of underlying hormonal problem
User :   those were 21 tablets
User :   n i had that from d 5th day of my cycle
Doctor :   that needs further evaluation to see if there is any excess or deficiency is present
User :   bt that was long time back
User :   almost 2 years
Doctor :   ok.
Doctor :   then you should consider going back to your doctor for the prescription of the same hormonal pills that controlled your symptoms
Doctor :   are you there?
