Also when I visited my gynae last month she told me i have a very very healthy uterus and only prescribed me folic acid , vitamin e and ecosprin(for blood flow ).also last year in oct when i had come down with uti doc advised me to get a ultrasound done.the results were cyst/fibroids were detected. what is the reason for this irregularity? could you recommend any special diet i can follow as i am not that keen on taking medicines.if its harmonal imbalance what can i do? my spouse is overseas on a project since jan and will be back by year end.I try to visit him once in few months.once he is back we want to try for a baby.could you pls help.

hello neha,
welcome to hcm
thanks for the query
what is your weight? have you done your thyroid profile.have you done the blood test for CT,BT?
poor nutrition can also cause such problem.
just continue the Drugs mentioned by you.
after knowing all the tests mentioned above its possible to tell the cause
if all thing is fine and still you are getting it then it can be regularised by taking oral progesterone
as for diet. there is no special just have a good balanced diet. frequent small diet. more green leafy veg
more water intake.
take care
