Infertility, facial hair, sweating, moodiness. On birth control to regulate periods. Early menopause?

I m 27 yrs old. I have been having a hard time getting pregnant. My periods are very irregular. I have gone 9 mths without one at one point. I am on bc to regulate my periods. I am concerned that I may be going thru an early menopause . I am hot all the time, I am getting facial hair , and constantly feel like I m sweating. I do get kind of moody too. Is it possible that this may be the case...early menopause? That I may not have kids?

dear client

looks as if you had polycystic ovary disease.. its a fairly common disorder amongst young women. but thankfuly its not that hard to get rid off it..
pcod creates a state of hormonal imbalance in which the levels of LEUTINIZING HORMONES AND ANDROGENS in female gets off balance..this hormonal imbalance interferes with mensturation cycle therefore the female is unable to acheive normal periods and in some cases even pregnency

apart from this at times there is abnormal hair growth on face..creating a cosmetic upset

fortunately we have the cause for it
its mainly seen in women who are over weight and have insulin resistance( which is a milder form of diabetes)
this makes the treatment very it goes
A} strict weight reduction..if you are over weight
b)concentrate more on aerobic exercises
C}have a low carb diet and foods with low glycemic index
d) include proper amount of vitamin d in your diet..

the medical managment includes

get your hormonal tets done...i hope these measures would bring all your hormones back to normal..once they are normal your fertility will be restored
dont worry..its very much treatable
