Hello
Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
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.
Deviry contains progesterone which is given cyclically to correct mild hormonal imbalance that can lead to irregular cycles.
Taking that is temporary, the cause of irregular cycles needs to be looked into in detail.
She could be having endometriosis.
According to the problem identified, treatment can be tailored.
All the best
Please feel free to discuss further.
