Thanks for posting your query.
You are taking medicines containing minerals, vitamins & antioxidant.
You are having combination of problems.
First treat PCOD by reducing weight & avoiding heavy & fast food.
Secondly you would have to go for surgery to remove the big fibroid.
Till then you can take progesterone tablets & nex-mf to reduce menstrual bleeding.
I hope your query has been answered.

i think why my gynaec have not given progesterone tablet.
wat type of surgery to remove follicles in my ovaries is it cause any severe problems to me without surgery.

Welcome back.
Fibroid & follicles are different things.
To remove fibroid myomectomy is done & to remove these big follicles ovarian drilling is done.
In your case your doctor has given you nex-mf to reduce bleeding. If still your bleeding is not controlled inform her she will start progesterone tablets also.
However you should think about surgery also to get rid of this problem.
I hope your query has been answered.

I saw my physician on Thursday of last week. From Monday, my beta had only gone from 385 to 556, and my progesterone went down from 10.1 to 8.8. I have been having severe cramps but no bleeding. According to my calculations/ovulation I should be no less than 5 weeks 5 days right now, but the transvaginal u/s they did on Thursday put me at 4 weeks 3 days...we re 5-7 days off. He made me cancel a road trip, because he didn t want me on the road when things went south . Does anyone have any experience with this? I miscarried with a blighted ovum around 9 months ago, and am concerned it s happening again.

My 21-day bloods have just come back and I have got good progesterone levels (55) but my prolactin is abnormally high (1250). I had abstained from alcohol for the best part of 5 months and the weekend before the blood test I had my bachelorette party and drank a large amount of alcohol. I would like to know if this could have affected the results? I am ovulating and my cycle is regular.
