Hi doctor,

I am a 29-year-old woman. I did not get periods last three months and have not done any tests. My mood changes, and I face hair fall and severe acne issues. What would be causing such problems? Is this due to any hormonal shift in my body? How can I recover from this? Will this issue last longer? How to get this diagnosed? Are any specific investigations to be done? Kindly help.

Thank you.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

According to your description, there is most probability of having PCOS (polycystic ovarian disorder) if you are sure about your pregnancy. Irregular periods, scanty menses, acne, and excessive weight gain, these things are commonly seen in PCOS. Also, such delayed periods are seen in thyroid abnormality and anemia commonly. But do not worry. With proper medicine and some life modification, it can be easily managed. I would suggest doing USG (ultrasound) pelvis scan, thyroid profile, and CBC (complete blood count). So accordingly, we will start proper treatment.

I hope this information will help you.

Thank you.
