Dr. Purushottam welcomes you to HCM virtual clinic!
Thanks for consulting at my virtual clinic. I have carefully gone through your query, and I think I have understood your concern. I will try to address your medical concerns and would suggest you the best of the available treatment options.

1) First of all do not worry.

2)I will suggest indulging in a healthy diet and regular exercise regime.
Include plenty of fruits, salads, vegetables in the diet. Have adequate water intake , say 8 – 10 glasses per day. Avoid deep fried foods, bakery products, and refined sugars.Start on FOLIC ACID, B12 supplements.

3) I will suggest use of phytoestrogens , plant derived estrogens. Cap FEMARELLE one at night for 3 months will be of help. It will have all good effects of estrogens without unwanted effects on uterus and breast.

I hope my answer helps you.
Wish you great health.
