Hello mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
Polycystic ovarian disease which is an endocrinological disease which affects all levels of conception and pregnancy.
ever since you have been lucky that you have completed your family life and satisfied from that end.
But still you have higher chances of cardiovascular problems and diabetes mellitus in further course so you might need to take metformin life long also.
keep a check on your blood sugars and keep taking medicine with periodic consultation with physician
In case you have further questions you can consult me on health care magic forum and i will be happy to help
Take care and wish you all the best.
Dr Manisha Jain.
