you didn't mentioned,
what is your age,
what was your ultrasound report,
what medicines doctor prescribed to you,
what is your height and weight, is there any recent weight gain?,
any associated medical disorders you are having?
One possibility is presence of PCOD(poly cystic ovarian disease). Which is characterized by irregular periods, anovulation, hyperinsulinaemia
Your doctor might have prescribed you insulin sensitizers like metformin for regularization of your periods.
Once you have started the medicine you have to take it until your problem gets solved and your doctor says to stop.
Another possibility is presence of any thyroid abnormality, may be for that your doctor prescribed you medicines.
These also should not be stopped until normal levels of hormones attained.
So, better you visit your doctor again and take complete treatment.
take care.

hello madam,

thank you for consulting us,

madam you have not mentioned your ultrasound finding, neither you have mentioned what medicines you had taken previously or what medicines you have been prescribed now for two months.

Difficult to answer your question with very least information available.

madam according to me you need a complete work up, a complete hormonal profile and ovulation study , so that we can reach to a conclusion of what you are suffering from..

your symptoms are more towards Polycystic ovarian syndrome, but it can be certified only after u get your work up done.
take care of your self..
