Brief Answer: You may try as advised by your doctor Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. Poly cystic ovary disease presents with symptoms like irregular cycles, anovulation, insulin resistance, hirsutism etc. Hormonal pills like krimson35 helps in regularization of the cycles and also in decreasing the hirsutism features. Tendency of recurrence is common with PCOD. Gonadil is a non hormonal drug, containing vitamins and minerals. Possibly this will help in ovulation. When regular ovulation occurs this can help in regularization of the hormonal levels and cycles. So as there is no harm in using that, you may try as advised by your doctor. Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the answer, please give your review at the end of the discussion. Take care.

Brief Answer: Difficult to tell the duration of PCOD problem Detailed Answer: Hi, It is difficult to guess the duration of PCOD problem. Using hormonal pills can regularize the internal hormonal levels. That can cure the PCOD. In some nonresponding cases ovarian drilling may be needed. Don't worry this may not needed in all women. As your doctor recommend gonadil now. You can use that for few months. If your periods get regularize with that, you may not need hormonal pills. If not, you can start hormonal pills with your doctor's advice. Once hormonal levels come to normal, there may not be any problem for future fertility. Take care.

For the past 6 years i experiance bouts of extreme fatigue, swollen chin and auxillary nodes, diarrhea, muscle pain and weakness, small headaches, gerd, and my skin is always tender to the touch to the point were hugs are painful and also something as small as snapping my fingers hurts. It also seem sthat my tolerance for pain has greatly diminished. Also, i have no to low sex drive and my mentral cycles have always been irregular, ocurring from 2-3 months, where now i have gone 6 months without one, occuring.

Hi, I am taking Duromine 40mg, and my urine is quite dark and odorous all day. I am drinking about 2 litres of water per day. I am not diabetic, but I took my BSL yesterday about 5hrs after lunch and it was 6.9. Is this a side effect, or should I investigate further - maybe insulin resistance? (had BSL done about a year ago and was perfect according to GP) thanks

I am 66, 5'2" and 155lbs. I developed a fib 2 years ago (now regulated) and was put on an older beta blocker plus I have high blood pressure for which I am now on the 5th different med ...I take 0.137 mg synthroid daily for 30 years, strength has varied over the years from 0.075 to as high as tsh, which is the only measurement my physician will consider, is usually 2.5 or the last few months my hypothyroid symptoms have increased and on the last lab my tsh was very high, over 8 so I know my thyroid level is very low...I am very fatigued, depressed and most upsetting am eating less and getting fatter, where before I was overweight but firm and now I can feel fat in my thighs and upper arms plus around my abdomin which I never had before. Research shows the older type of beta blocker, atenolol, can slow metabolism and cause insulin resistance, (I am not diabetic) is it safe to simply stop one beta blocker and start fact, I'd like to get off it altogether but the last time my physician said to just stop taking it, I developed pvc's which was corrected by increasing the atenolol. I am distressed about the side effects of this drug and wld like to take something less toxic.
