OBGYN 's  Response
Use of progesterone only helps to relieve the hormone imbalance temporarily. For a better cure, you need a complete evaluation. Please go for a proper check up, a trans-vaginal/pelvic sonogram, complete hormone profile, tests for insulin resistance etc. Once the causative factor has been identified, management becomes easier. Meanwhile start maintaining your body weight by healthy diet and regular exercise. Avoid stress and please be assured that this hormone imbalance is easy to correct. Hope this helps.

Hope this message finds u in good health.
I have gone through ur msg and understand your concern.

it may be due to some sort of hormonal imbalances or variations in the body,though there may be other reasons as well

Nothing to worry about, You should eventually get back to normal.

Take multi vitamin and calcium supplements
Do consult a gynecologist if symptoms worsen
