Brief Answer:
Cyclical hormpnes / exercises/ positivity help.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
You are worried about your mental stress, irregular periods & weight gain after your marriage.
Marriage brings about major change in a girls life from many angles.

Her family, environment, new customs / habits in the in new family definitely give her a sense of fear/ awkwardness.She also starts her sexual life,her routine changes drastically-All of these result in emotional changes. she is nervous/ insecure. This automatically goes as she gets accustomed with the change.

Menstrual irregularity is common in newly married girls. That is due to Psychological stress/nervousness/anxiety/worry directly reflect in hormonal functioning,& change in menstrual pattern.

Hormonal change many a times causes small cysts in ovary-again causing menstrul irregularity.
Changes in eating habits are because of psychological nervousness which results in less eating/ excessive eating. Eating healthy is essential for hormonal normality & so normal menses.
Weight gain or loss is a common finding in newly married girls the cause being new eating habits in family/ psychological stress.

In this light I would advice you-
- to consult a Gynecologist for physical examination, few investigations like CBC/ USG / thyroid test( that you have already done & are normal),
- A hormonal assay/ endometrial biopsy may be needed to decide exact
treatment plan.
- Fasting & post meal blood sugar may be advised in case of family history of diabetes. Insulin resistance test/ USG for PCOD may be advised- in case there is no relief in 3 months of hormonal treatment. Usually specific hormonal treatment for three months & optimum exercises & positive attitude will mostly control your problem. I think that is the way forward and the treatment plan.

I'm having pain behind right chest area, upper and mid right back and shoulder as well as liver area for 3wks. 3wks ago it began and I was also throwing up bile. I was diagnosed with biliary colic, put on tylenol and bentyl. It is happening after I eat or drink (non fatty) foods and also for no reason at all. I am 37, and 115 pounds, 5 feet 6 inches and eat mostly a vegan diet anyway. Was seen by a dr and they also did an ultrasound. It showed no stones, only a gallbladder polyp and a few simple cysts in my liver. The polyps and cysts were not there in 2009. I was told they were not causing this pain/problem. And now they aren't sure it is biliary colic because of the length this has been happening. What should my next step be since I am still not right? One dr suggested a HIDA scan, and another said wait it out since the HIDA has radiation. I had quite a few xrays this past yr for other causes not related. Do you think a small polyp or small cysts can cause pain?

Hello Doc. I am 30 years old, unmarried and 10 years back, I was diagnosed with a simple cyst in my right testicle above epididymis and my surgeon doctor did not advice any treatment. 6 months back I had severe constipation including right testical pain for which I consulted the same surgeon. He asked me to get my semen tested and the report showed around 90% of my semen was not motile. He gave me treatment in two parts. In the first part of his treatment, he gave me Pantodac DSR and PAN 20 for first 20days and next 10 days respectively to be taken after break fast. The second part of his treatment had Norflox 400Mg to be taken for 20 days collectively with COQ10 30mg for 2 months. The initial pain and discomfort which I had in my right testicle is gone, but still I am getting some pain (not continuous) in my right testicle. There is a lump in the upper part of my testicle which the doctor says that it is a normal displacement and there is nothing to worry about. My surgeon doctor also told me that I can take PAN 20 when I feel like. I feel the pain only when I don’t take PAN 20 during the day. Also my doctor has adviced me to wear tight underwears. I want to know your take on this and would like to know when I can become as normal as before. Now-a-day i am getting a twicthing sensation with some dull pain. Please help me.
