Hello XXXXXXX,

Thanks for posting your query on health care magic.

Your symptoms of irregular periods and unwanted facial and chest hairs suggest polycystic ovarian syndome(PCOS). However there is nothing to be concerned about. It is a treatable condition.

I recommend you the following.
1. Get yourself investigated for hormones like FSH, LH, Serum Prolactin, Sr Testosterone and an Ultrasound abdomen. Ask for your husbands semen analysis.
2. Meanwhile you can start on oral contraceptive pills for 3months. This will treat your symptom of irregular menstrual cycle and facial hair.
3. From forth month you can stop oral contraceptive pills and try for a baby.

Hope this helps.
Feel free to ask for follow up clarifications.
regards,
Dr Nilofer

Hello,
I appreciate your prompt reply.

Let me answer your query.

1. What are some recommended contraceptive for those 3 months? You can take Krimson 35 for 3 months. It is oral contraceptive pill specially indicated for excess facial hair and menstrual irregularity.

2. And will these meds make me feel ill? No , they will not make you feel ill. Infact you will feel much better.

3. Is there anything I can do Naturally? Yes. You need to reduce your weight atleast by 5%. It will automatically regularize your cycles and increase your chances of pregnancy.

Hope this helps.
regards,
Dr Nilofer
