Having pain during periods. is this normal? - Online Doctor Chats
How are you?
I am fine
How can I help you?
i need some clarification regarding my sis
she is 23 year old
she is feeling pain during her period time and we consulted Dr. And Dr said not to worry as it depends on the person
A lot of women will have pain during the periods
one more issue is bleeding ocurs once in 10 days or 15 days
That is abnormal and it needs to be evaluated
once or twice
even if its once, its abnormal
Minimum cycle length should be around 26 days
she is facing this issue since from 10 years
sorry from last 10 years
previously she under wend scanning and the report was normal
Was she started on a hormonal pill?
The consulted dr also said the same
she needs to be started
She under went one more ultrasonography
the report says normal
If she is bleeding so often
there is a high chance that she is anemic
She needs to be treated for that as well
But there is statment in the report that "Both Ovarian show multiple small cysts ranging in size 2-3 mm"
What is her weight?
and height also?
5feet 3.5 inches
her weight is normal
But she probably has polycystic ovarian disease
for which she needs to be treated
This could be leading to the frequent bleeding that she is experiencing
Also there is one statement under the Impression like "Bilateral polycystic ovaris with endometrial thichness of 12mm" what does it mean
This means that she has a condition called polycystic ovarian disease
is "polycystic ovarian disease XXXXXXX is serios
Its not serious but it needs to be treated
does it requires any operation of can be treated without opearation
It does not need a surgery at this point
We first try with medication
once the relevant tests have been done
we will need a hormonal profile to start with
Once we have the results
we put her on hormones
This will help regularize her cycles
and will also take care of future issues
I would suggest she see a gynaecologist
our worry is that we are searching guy for her it should not affect her after marr life
The treatment will take about 3-6 months to take effect
Its important she gets treated right now
My question why this is identified now eventhough she is facing this from 10 years
and why it is not idenified in the previous scanning
we did the scanning twice
Sometimes the resolution may not be good enough
The important thing now is that we get it treated
Does food habit will influance this
can we control this with proper diat
A diet will not help her control this
Please understand XXXXXXX
just asking what would be the treatment cost in bangalore.
She needs to be treated with medication
The medication is not expensive and is in fact very commonly prescribed
So you just basically need to pay for the doctor's fees
If you go St Johns , it can be cheaper
Do you have any opn about Dr XXXXXXX Bhat
Dont know her personally
Dr XXXXXXX is actually from AIIMS,New Delhi
you hear about her right ?
OK. Thanks Dr providing valuable information. We will consult gynaecologist for the further treatment
It is nice talking to you.
Thanks for consulting me
Have a good day ahead
