Hi, I have been putting on alot of weight recently and my periods come regularly every month but sometimes 10days late and sometimes 5-10days early.I have also developed high bp and water retention..sometimes my ankles feel like they will burst and my body feels stiff in the joints and heavy when I have all this water inside me.I amm 38yrs old still single over a 100kgs..I have also started developing facial hair on my chin ...the dr suggested I take bigomet sr 500 three times a day to reduce that hairgrowth..please help me ...I have been to so many drs that now I seem to be losing faith in doctors. Looking forward to hearing from you..thanks and regards..Grace

Thanks for writing to us.
From your description it seems that you are suffering from an endocrinal disturbance. A complete hormonal evaluation is needed under the guidance of an endocrinologist for treatment. Taking only bigomet is not sufficient.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
