I have gone through your query and can understand your concern.

As per your complain and presentation of symptoms hormonal imbalance is a common factor that causes recurring mouth ulcers while there are few other common reasons like Nutritional deficiency of Iron, vitamin B12 and folic acid, stress, allergy to any medicine or foods or toothpaste etc.
Nothing to worry as after a proper clinical evaluation and certain investigations like Blood investigation, Vitamin B12 and folate studies and thyroid investigations can help.

As of now you can start taking a multivitamin tablet for 1 month.
Do warm saline gargles.
In case if there is an eruption of ulcers going on then you can apply a numbing gel containing Lignocaine for pain relief.
Take Ibuprofen for relief from pain and inflammation.
Soda bi-carb gargles can help.
Avoid hot and spicy foods.

Hope this information helps..

Thanks and regards..
