Thanks for posting your query.
From the symptoms that you have described, it is probable that you are suffering from dysfunctional uterine bleeding
. Although this occurs due to a variety of reasons, the most common reason is when the ovaries do not release an ovum (egg). This can occur due to hormonal disturbances or due to polycystic ovaries
or thyroid disorder
I would suggest you to get certain investigations done so that a conclusion can be reached. These include:
a. Complete blood count
b. Fasting blood sugar
c. Follicle stimulating hormone
d. Luteinizing hormone
e. Prolactin levels
f. Thyroid function tests
( serum thyroid stimulating hormone
levels and serum free thyroxine levels)
g. Ultrasonography of the pelvic region
Till then, I would suggest that you increase your physical activity, do not take any stress and take iron supplements
. You can take tablet ferrous sulphate 100 mg once daily empty stomach.
Do take the hormonal as your gynecologist has suggested.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
