Hi
I am 33 yrs old. I am having menstrual irregularities for past 1 year. For which i ve gone to see a gynecologist as well & after a series of tests, she gave me glucophage however i am not diagnosed as a diabetic or PCOS.

Hello XXXXXXX,

Thanks for posting your query.

PCOS is one of the commonest causes of irregular periods. Since the blood insulin levels were slightly raised and there were minor changes in the ovarian cysts, hence it raises the possibility of PCOS. PCOS is a likely diagnosis for your irregular...
