OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 7 months ago

You need to be investigated for polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) / hormonal aberrations which are likely for scanty periods.

The first step would be to get the following investigations, if not done;

1) androgen,

2) luteinizing hormone (LH), and

3) insulin

4) Ultrasound of ovaries.

The treatment is;

a) The drug of choice for inducing ovulation in PCOS is clomiphene citrate.

b) Metformin

c) Coming to optimum weight.

d) Laparoscopic ovarian drilling.

e) Spironolactone, flutamide and finasteride are antiandrogens that work in PCOS by decreasing androgen levels, which can be elevated in patients with PCOS.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
