Irregular periods may be a sign if PCOS. You can simply go for a urine pregnancy test to check whether you are pregnant or not. If symptoms persist better to consult a gynecologist and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further. Wishing you all the best.

Hello Doctor, Hope you are doing good. My name is Chitra, 26 years old. From the time of puberty(which was 15 years back) I am having irregular menstrual cycle. And from the time I am under medication. Initially I was told that due to early age puberty my periods are irregular. And it used to be vast.. Either when I get my periods it will last for 15-20 days and when I stop it using tablet it will not come again for months. I have consulted around 4 doctors in this 15 years and found that I have PCOS and so far my period was not regularized and in continuous treatment. My Gynecologist said that many women have this issue and it will get alright for some once they get married and have a child. Now I am married for 4 months and I was under medication till last before month. I was having Duoluton tablet and my Dr. asked me to stop this birth control after 2 months of marriage and to start having Hyponidd for 6 months which will help me conceive. I stopped Duoluton last month and started having Hyponidd, but missed my period which was supposed to be on 18th May 2014. I even had a pregnancy test and it was negative. Unfortunately after marriage I moved to USA and couldnt have a personal consultation with my Dr. and also could reach her through phone only by next week since she is in abroad and not in India now. Now I am confused as to what would be the best treatment for me from now on that will help me getting conceive. I am also obese since I have gained so much weight before marriage due to computer job, heavy mental stress due to family issues and in addition with PCOS. Now I am a house wife and also away from mental stress and family issues and here in USA I am trying to workout atleast thrice a week in treadmill and cycling for 1 or 1.5 hours. But I feel difficult to reduce it now, still I am trying hard continuously. For sure I know reducing my weight will slightly help me. But apart from that what would be the treatment I should take further? Is that a personal consultation with doctor compulsory by this time and if yes which specialization doctor should I consult? It will be of great help to get an answer and I am worried if I will get pregnant and make my husband happy who loves me a lot. Thank you!

Hi, I Am mr A chakraborty, here I am writing... Hi, I Am mr A chakraborty, here I am writing about My wife. Mrs. Subarna Mukherjee. Age - 30 years Blood group - B+ Married on - April 2002 Subarna had 2 missed abortions: First was in Dec 2004. The pregnancy was not planned. When she missed her periods a test confirmed the news. She went straight to the doctor and was put on Folic acid tablets and led a very constricted life. At the same she had a throat infection and slight fever and took some medicines which were preg safe. After four weeks the scan did not show a fetal heart beat and soon after she spotted blood which passing urine. She was put on Susten (100mg 1-0-1 x 7 days) tabs and Protasi (2000 1amp) which reduced the spotting temporarily but shortly afterwards clots of large quantiy appeared and she had to undergo an emergency DNC. Doctor - Indira Reddy; Sagar Apollo Hospital, Bangalore. Second was in late 2006 After trying to concieve for two months in vain she consulted the doctor and was suggested Microgest (100mg), EC 350, M2 Tone, A Sugar (500mg), FAS 3 KIT and Clofert (50mg). With the help of above medicines she could conceive in Oct 2006. From day one when the preg test was positive (LMP - 11/9/2006) she was put on HCG (5000) injection along with Microgest (200mg), Ecosprin (75mg) and ofcourse Folic Acid. After 6 weeks the Ultrasound did not show a fetal heart beat and the report said missed abortion. There was no blood spotting yet. She continued with usual HCG and Microgest for one more week. The second Ultrasound done at 7 weeks showed normal fetal heart beat (No Corpus Luteum was reported in the scan report). After a week (at the 8th week) blood spotting started and the flow gradually increased leaded to yet another miscarriage. The abortion was done with oral medicines. Doctor - Hema Malini, Jayanagar, Bangalore. after that, we did not try 2yrs any thing..then from july 09 we started again treatment, she was taking letroz for oct to december...but no result .then month of april she has gone for Laprtscopy & dye doctor are telling her 1 tube is ok, but other is block..., after that april to thik aug(10) we r trying..but no positive result..plzzzzz help me what to do now....

I ve been under a great deal of stress lately and have been urinating quite frequently (10+ times a day), and have noticed that over half the time the urine is very foamy. I ve had 3 urine analysis done in the last week (one by a urologist) and they found NO trace of protein in the urine. One of the tests did find a trace of microscopic blood, but that was it. I m confused as to why my urine would be so foamy without any signs of protein.
