Customer:

are u there?


Dr. Owen :

hello

Dr. Owen :

I'm back

Dr. Owen :

Okay

Dr. Owen :

what you have going on is possibly Hypothyroidism (low thyroid) or you have PCOS _ Polycystic ovarian syndrome

Dr. Owen :

And, why you have irregular periods is due to your weight

Dr. Owen :

when you have excess weight, this causes you to not ovulate and hence you will have irregular periods

Dr. Owen :

So, in order to get pregnant you will need to lose weight

Dr. Owen :

Plus there are a few other things you need to do to find out the Exact diagnosis you have.

Dr. Owen :

I'll be here for you when you come back

Customer:

i am right here


 

Customer:

keep on talking

Dr. Owen :

What questions do you have since I have brought this information to you

Dr. Owen :

Have you been evaluated for any of these conditions that I spoke of?

Dr. Owen :

Here are some things you do need to do besides trying to lose weight.

Dr. Owen :

You should check your thyroid with a TSH thyroid blood test and if you have hypothyroidism - then using a medication such as Levothyroxine will help you to get more regular periods, but also to help lose weight.

Dr. Owen :

To check for PCOS - you need a pelvic ultrasound, and these blood tests: Testosterone, Insulin, DHEA-S, Estradiol and FSH - follicle stimulating hormone

Dr. Owen :

And, if you have PCOS, then a medication such as Metformin should help, plus it can help you to lose weight

Dr. Owen :

DO you have any more quesitons?

Dr. Owen :

Hello

Dr. Owen :

Are you still there?

Dr. Owen :

I see you are here - do you have any more questions?
