hello welcome to healthcare magic. the ultrasound picture you tell us is that of polycysctic ovaries. do not worry. polycystic appearance of ovaries on ultrasound is normally seen in about 20% asian women without underlying polycystic ovarian syndrome. do you have any other symptoms like exessive weight, excesive facial/body hair, irregular or delayed periods? you should visit your gynaecologist who can do a couple of tests to see if you have polycystic ovarian syndrome. do not worry. get it evaluated, there is a treatment.
