    Q. I am unmarried and I am diagnosed with PCOD. My periods are very irregular with pain in the lower abdomen. Why this happens and what should I do now?
    • PCOD can be diagnosed in girls even at the young age of 14. Therefore, girls need to keep a check on the overall health once their menses have started. If you are diagnosed with PCOD, then you need to remember that your menstrual cycle will be under the control of PCOD to a great extent. Along with this, you will also notice certain other symptoms such as severe weight changes, excessive hair growth, and at times vision changes which take a toll in the routine lifestyle. It is essential that you consult the infertility specialist before proceeding with any kind of medications or medical treatment to cure PCOD. PCOD can cause major problems in occurrence of pregnancy and can significantly affect the woman in conception. Get treated with the right treatment and get well soon!

    • PCOD makes it important for the woman to take major actions and implements changes in the daily lifestyle. PCOD also requires patient to take medications for controlling hormonal functioning in the body. My doctor mentioned that anti-androgen based medications will help a lot in this. Reduction in consumption of sugar based foods will help you in improving your health soon without facing any severe effects on the body. Metformin is also known to have a good impact on the health of the woman. Hope this information guides you in a better health. Good luck!
