1.Around 6 years.
2.Initial phase it was like in alternative months .Then I had Ayurveda treatment to become normal.During the treatment the first period during that time last for 15 days and started having medicine for stopping it.Then I continued with this treatment for a while.
Then I went to meet a gynecologist and had 2 months treatment .Tested for Thyroid and found normal.At that period the periods was regular but the tablets was heavy dosage.
After that I went back again to another famous Ayurveda doctor .She asked to scan and the report was normal.Again with her treatment,it last for 15 days and took medicine to stop it.I continued with her treatment for around 1 year.Then it was okay.
Later in 2016,again it was irregular. At that time I went to one homeopathy doctor.Again she asked to scan and did scanning even that report was normal.Then continued with her medicine for around 8 months then it was normal for around 1 year.
Four months back it again become irregular.At that time continued with the homeopathy and the bleeding will last for around 20 days and it was heavy bleeding and felt so tired too .So I shifted to Ayurveda treatment now for 2 months.Still it is irregular.

Brief Answer:
Further management is largely based on test results.

Detailed Answer:

Hello Madam,

Thank you for your detailed response.

It's very important for you to understand that Ayurvedic or Homeopathic remedies are not effective in your case. Hence, it's not advisable not to rely on them as it gives you a false sense of well being delaying the medical attention.

This looks like a significant underlying hormonal disorder causing these abnormalities in menstrual cycle. It has to be corrected at the earliest. Treatment may extend for longer periods.

Further management is largely based on test results. I will guide you accordingly once the test results are out. I recommend you discuss about it with your gynecologist and get the tests done.

Review with reports to determine further course of action.

Take care.
