Brief Answer: Polymenorrhoea. Thorough examination and investiga Detailed Answer: Hello, I have gone through your query and understand your concern. You are suffering from Abnormal menstrual bleeding called Polymenorrhea. There are plenty of causes for Polymenorhoea. As your Ultrasound reports are normal, probably you may not have any Polycystic ovarian disease ( PCOD) or Fibroids in Uterus. Further we have to investigate to rule out the other medical causes like Hyperthyroidism, Pitutary adenoma, adrenal hyperplasia. If no cause is found then, it is called Dysfunctional Uterine bleeding ( DUB). Thus you need thorough examination by your Gynecologist to rule out any Cervicitis, cervial polyps and she may look for any signs of medical causes like hyperthyroidism or adenoma etc. Then she will take investigate for thyroid and other causes which i mentioned above as per her findings in examination and based on your history of irregular periods. She may do investigations like Thyroid profile, Serum prolactin level, estrogen and other hormonal levels to rule out any anovulation. Depending upon the cause, treatment varies. For example, if you have hyperthyroidism, then he will prescribe antithyroid medications. If no cause is found even after extensive investigations, then she will treat it as Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding. She will prescribe Oral contracepive pills or Progesterone containing Intrauterine device to control the bleeding. Hope this helps. Please write back for further queries. Wishing you good health.

Brief Answer: No. Depends upon the cause, Cost of treatment vari Detailed Answer: Hello, No. I do not mean it will affect your pregnancy or baby. Because it is usual to have Polymenorrhea or Hypomenorrhoea for some time in life many women. But if it persistent, it should be investigated and treated. Depending upon the cause the treatment varies and thus cost of the treatment also. If no cause is found, then Oral contracepive pills or Progesterone containing Intrauterine device may be used. It does not cost very much. But if there is any Pitutary adenoma, then treatment cost will be higher and doctor may advice surgery. You should first check with a Gynecologist and investigate properly. Till then do not get confuse and stress yourself. Hope this helps. Please write back for further queries. Wishing you good health.
