Doctor :   What are the sizes of the Cysts if you can tell me
User :   it is very small i don have the reports currently with me
User :   what do you say is it a major problem what i am facing
Doctor :   Yes it is but definitely treatable
Doctor :   that is why i was asking about the Sizes since if they are too large then you will need to get them treated surgically
Doctor :   That is Puncturing the Cysts and then they will cause the Hormonal Balance to become Normal and thus regularizing the Cycles
User :   what kind of surgery
User :   how many days it will take
User :   can it not treated without surgery
Doctor :   Laproscopic Cyst excision or Puncture and will not take more than 3-4 days of hospitalisation
Doctor :   If the Cyst size is too large then that is the method that will help you
Doctor :   Are you Following it
User :   can we not control this with tablets
User :   ya i do
Doctor :   That is the one method that you have tried and that is not working in your case hnce
User :   but the doctor never suggested me this before
Doctor :   they would not since the Medical Measures are the once that you need to start with and based on their success you proceed further
Doctor :   laparoscopic ovarian drilling, is the name of the Procedure
User :   are these regestrone tablets harmful for the future fertility
Doctor :   No it will not be since there will be the balance that needds to be maintained and your doctor will be following up with you on regular basis to look for any adverse effects and stop immediately
Doctor :   once noted
User :   okay
Doctor :   Please fill the feedback form say done when done while I type the information you needed.
User :   right now i will not be able to go for that surgery
Doctor :   ok

Doctor :   The prescription medicines are given after the cause is exactly made out. Since we havent physically examined you, it is inappropriate and unethical to prescribe you scheduled drugs. Hence see the doctor for the medicine that you require.
User :   okay
User :   no problem
Doctor :   Thanks for consulting Health care magic. Bye for now. Please refer your friends to our service
