PCOS problem

Hi. I have been suffering from PCOS since 2005. I used to be a happy person who was satisfied with life. I had gone abroad to study for 1 year and came back after finishing my bachelors. I came back for family and a long term relationship that broke on a very bad note within a few months.

I was suffering emotionally and health problems sprung up. My breasts used to hurt and increased in size. I never has weight problems but it increased suddenly. I was diagnosed with high prolactin levels, hirsuitism and pcod. The prolaction got under control but I have been struggling with pcod since then.

(Generally I loose weight with exercise but put on as soon as I leave it.) I was put on diane 35 which was fine initially. But after many months I started getting headaches and bloating so I stopped the medicines sometime 2006. After stopping Diane 35 my periods were fine for a few months but then started getting delayed every month. My hair growth problem on face was back in spite of doing laser treatment. Once when they were delayed and finally started, they continued for more than 15 days with slight flow. I was given allopathy medicine and put back on diane 35.

From then I have been having problems with periods. I tried homeopathy from two different doctors in Dubai but they never gave me medicine names.

From Aug/Sept 08 I have been getting increased hair growth on face and body. October 2008 I have been taking homeopathic medicine to stop my periods! This month I had to take homeopathic meds to even start my periods- But this time I have been bleeding for 15 days and the flow is medium (much more than the normal bleeding I get when it lasts so long). Even homeopathic medicines given to me are not stopping it(some brown liquid & pellets the names of which I don't know). I will take allopathy to stop the periods now.

Generally about me I have been very unstable since i have come back to Dubai. Nothing seems to keep my attention for too long-be it activities i like or jobs, i keep loosing friends, am very sensitive and unhappy with a lot of things.

Please help about what homeopathic medicines I should take after my periods stop as I don't want to start allopathy meds again. Thanks in advance.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Hi, Don't be so anxious as PCOS is not such a big problem, it can be cured with homoeopathic medicines. Tell me the size and volume of ur ovaries if u have ultrasound reports and also get ur thyroid profile checked if u have not yet got it. then i ll revert back with medications.

Dr. Shalini last decade
hi doctor shalini. My periods were not stopping with medium to heavy bleeding for 15 days so I was put on Primolut n(starting 19 Jan) for 10 days to stop the bleeding. She has also prescribed Metformin.

Can I take homepathic medicines you have recommended along with these allopathy meds? Also, does homepathy dissolve the cysts or just regulates the cycles?
 
AnamikaInDubai last decade
Forgot to mention in my previous post...my periods stopped on 20th Jan. But I am having a lot of gas & pms like symptoms with these allopathy medicines(which also used to be there with contraceptive pills in 2005/6).

Thanks for your guidance.
