Dear customer

Thank you for the quick reply.

The symptoms of having 3 periods in 6 weeks you had can be due to various causes.

The most common causes are:stress,anxiety,imbalance of hormones,polycystic ovarian syndrome(PCOS)/estrogen dominance,uterine abnormalities (fibroids/cysts/polyps/endometriosis).

Stress/depression/anxiety is one of the most common cause followed by PCOS.

You may need clinical examination,testing for thyroid function and other hormone levels. A pelvic exam is required to rule out any uterine abnormality, a cervical polyp or fibroid, or a uterine infection.Also you need an ultrasound to evaluate the uterus, the ovaries and the fallopian tubes.

This is not serious or dangerous issue.Many a times,this gets recovered/normal on its own without any medication.So you need to wait & watch your cycle.

If this continues for more then 3 cycles/3 months ,then you need to consult to your gynae doctor for tests & examination to know the underlying cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.Hormonal tests & ultrasound (if required)will then be done.

As of now,just keep an eye of observation.

Hope this helped

If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know how I can be of further assistance.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.

Thank you.

Kind Regards

Dr.Josh

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
