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 have big size follicles in the ovary is it a fibroid .
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.

Hi I m having problems with my scalp. It s been very flaky sore and the more I itch the more I loose hair. I ve been taking the POP progesterone only pill lately and I don t know if that it a cause of it. Also I wear weaves but have done nothing different to my normal routine! I haven t changed shampoos or hair oils. Also I went to the doctors and he gave me a shampoo beginning with D what was prescribed but it has made no difference. I have a busy lifestyle but still try to balance my eating and exercising. Any suggestions? J

To who it may concern, I appreciate your help a lot. I could not find the answer online, and I currently don t have a personal physician to ask. I am eighteen years old, and I plan to go back on my combined birth control oral contraceptive called ,Tri-Sprintec. I have a question that worries me a lot. If this birth control pills are triphasic, have three different phases, each week has a different amount of progesterone hormone, so if I throw up in one hour after taking a pill and it is most likely missed and take next one from the same phase, will it reduce the effectiveness of my birth controls because of taking,in this case, six instead of seven pills of that phase according to the whole cycle ?

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.
