Have irregular periods. Diagnosed with PCOD. Suggestion? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you today?
Checked with doctor and they have said it as PCOD
Continuously I used to take medicines but stopped in between, I feel to make it regular by natural methods, could you please suggest me some other ways
Waiting for your suggestion
only once in two months I get my periods
Imbalance may be treated if it is causing other symptoms as well
What food items I need to include in my diet for making this regular ?
Mostly I think that medicines may be taken when you are trying for pregnancy or you are having other symptoms
Since treatment may also have side-effects
If you can tell me what have you tried till now I will be better able to suggest something
Mostly hormonal imbalances are treated with hormonal supplements
I just took some tablets prescribed by doctors
Do you have any other symptoms?
Are you there?
Other symptoms due to increased male hormones may be present
they said excess of secreation of male hormones
The symptoms can include excess facial hair, acne
they prescribed regesterone and some other tablet(right now I am unable to recollect the exact name)
Regesterone may have been prescribed for a withdrawal bleed
Usually a gynecologist can handle pcos well
I am tired of taking these tablets... I want to make this alright by natural method
by natural food habits
Could you suggest me
You may try low calorie diet and exercise to decrease weight
It helps in lowering male hormones
High calorie diet includes milk products like cheese, butter ice cream etc
So you may decrease the consumption of this food
Also exercise for 20 min a day
It helps and you should try it
Ayurvedic medicines may have side-effects
You suggested me foods to avoid, could you tell me some food items to consume in my diet ?
Herbal medicines are not supported by enough research
Fruits in general help
You should try drinking lots of pure water
It will help excreting the toxins and excess hormones from body
Always I feel tired and sleepy, is it due to this problem ?
Then lots of hair loss too
For that I will recommend that you get your blood tests done to rule out more common causes like anemia
and vitamin deficiency
Hair loss may be due to male hormone excess
Oh ok, if I take lots of fruits will it stop my hair loss and regularize my periods ?
It will help
Ok I will try it properly from now onwards
Take 5 - 6 fruits or vegetables in a day
You mean 5 number ?
5 to 6 numbers of fruits r pieces ?
Suppose if you are having 6 meals in a day, then include them 5 times
ok got it
Do you have any other question?
If I have any other problem I will contact you later, anyways I will try this out
