Brief Answer: AS BELOW Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing to us with your health concern. Can you please upload the ultrasound report as the typed words are not very clear or informative. The uploaded report will enable me to provide a better diagnosis. You should have thorough evaluation for irregular cycles and inability to conceive. Reasons like stress, anxiety, emotional turbulence, late nights, erratic eating habits, weight gain or loss, over exercise, smoking, drinking , drugs, ingestion of medications that affect the hormonal axis, travelling, climate or altitude changes - these are some common reasons. Other than that, conditions like hypothyroidism, PCOS ( polycystic ovarian disease ) etc need to be ruled out. For this, have a thorough gynecological check up - internal per speculum and per vaginum examination. Also, please get a pelvic ultrasound scan done transvaginally. Then get the following investigations done - FSH, LH, TSH, Prolactin, OGTT, DHEAS, Free testosterone, Lipid profile. This will reveal a diagnosis. According to the problem identified, treatment can be tailored. All the best Please feel free to discuss further.
