Doctor :   blocked pipes can be seen in a ultrasound
User :   3d ultrasound?
Doctor :   in case it was not treated for a very long time, it may have caused some inflammation that could have been visible on the ultrasond

Doctor :   this will remove all the doubts

Doctor :   that is fine
User :   yes
Doctor :   that does not matter now
User :   why?
Doctor :   the only thing u need is medications to correct your periods
Doctor :   the periods have to become normalised to once in 28 - 30 days
