Brief Answer:
Irregular menses

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
It is not so . You should be getting your menses each month and regularly.If you have irregular cycles then you need to be investigated to rule out other common causes of irregular menses or delayed menses after ruling out pregnancy ,like PCOD or polycystic ovarian syndrome, hypothyroidism and hyperprolactinemia.
You should get a hormonal profile and an ultrasound pelvis done to evaluate the above treatable possibilities.

I'm planning for baby... last 2 cycle doctor prescribed siphene medicine
She told if this cycle fails then I have to take siphene and then FSH injection for 4 days

I would like to know how FSH helps ? if taken or not taken with siphene

Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
FSH is follicle stimulating hormone and is advocated along with Siphene from day 7 till day 12 , in cases of siphene poor responder cases , i.e if the follicles do not develop inspite of siphene administration. You can go ahead with fsh , but you need to get regular follicular monitoring to establish growth of follicles after administration to decide when to stop to avoid hyperstimulation syndrome.

hi my sister is 22 years old and she was complaining from high prolactin levels and last time the doctor(gynecologist ) asked her to make MRI (MID OF THE SEIAlA TURCICA) and the result came as follows:
a 22 old female patient with hyperprolactinemia of 6 year duration associated with recent visual field defect no previous similar studies for comparison however the current study reveals a well defined focal lesion is noted at the left aspect of pituitary gland measuring 6 x6 mm in its craniocaudal x transverse diameter displaying delayed enhancement compared to the rest of adjacent normal galndour tissue especially noted in the dynamic phase and delayed postcontrast study with mild downward sagging of the sellar floor and minimal focal bulge of the glandular contour still central pitutary stalk with no signifiganct mass effect .
normal optic charisrnas
normal suprasellar and paraseller sturctures
complementary T2 of the brain is unremarkable .
Prominant Nasopharyngeal lymphoid tissue.
Right maxillary antrum retention cyst.
Opinion :
the picture has keeping with pitutary microadenoma implicating the left aspect of adenohypopysis displaying size and imaging features as detailed above
so what you think about the report as the doctor said need surgery or there is any other option
