User:hi doctor...i had queried some question and have received answer as well..
User:however have some doubts still..
User:Question was:- I have scanty periods which last for 1.5 days since 4-5 months. I age 29, and got married 10 months back. Earlier I use to get around 4 days period. We are planning to conceive. Does this indicate fertility issues?.. Period cycle is 28 days, and periods are regular. Does low haemoglobin could one of the factors leading to scanty periods?
User:Answer received:- yes low hemoglobin can cause less menses . if you have gained weight it can also cause scanty menses . pl do Transvaginal scan for poly cystic ovaries . if cycles are anovulatory then conception might be an issue . pl maintain BMI below 23
Doctor:please give me a moment
Doctor:let me read your query
Doctor:are you there?
Doctor:i have read the details
Doctor:please ask me your doubts now further doubt is I understand that anovulatory cycle means there is bleeding without ovulation. However, how to check whether I am ovulating. Any test which i can do at home? Also what are the symptoms of anovulatory cycle?
Doctor:You can do Isure test at home
Doctor:This will detect ovulation
Doctor:The test will be positive if you are ovulating
Doctor:anovulatory cycles will not cause much of symptoms
User:ok..i have tried it once...however, it was negative..i predict this might be because of timing when i did that.....can you ellaborate on the exact timings where this test can be positive?
Doctor:the test has to be done 14 days prior to next periods date, provided your cycles are regular
User:what is the timing of the test ?. i.e. during which time of the day this needs to be i remain in office whole day
Doctor:You can do it in the early morning sample
User:ok....the first urine?
Doctor:yes thanks...
