I had an irregular period ever since I was in college, and when it comes, my period usually lasts for four days (abdomen pain is just usual, not much). However, just this month, I had a very painful experience (I do not know if it is caused by air cause I had the fan turned on while sleeping); the pain was coming from my lower left abdomen. It is the first time I felt it, so I took Revalan, and it was gone within the day. I still have my period going on, a week now probably longer than usual but not painful. For years now, I get facial hair. And I also get big pimples on my armpits or butt area, or neck area (nape), especially when my period is coming. They are so active. What shall I do?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I am sorry to hear about your problem. You could be having PCOD (Polycystic ovarian disease), in which there is ovarian dysfunction due to multiple cysts in the ovary. You might also be having pain due to some infection in the uterus, tubes, or ovaries. Get an ultrasound of the abdomen and pelvis. Also, get a few blood tests like thyroid function tests, prolactin levels, testosterone levels, FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone), and LH (luteinizing hormone). For your acne, take tablet Azithromycin 250 mg twice a day for five days and apply Acnesol (Clindamycin Phosphate gel) gel twice a day. After the investigations, if it is PCOD, we might have to put you on hormonal treatment, so get back to me. Periods also are irregular because of this. For abdominal pain, take tablet Ceftum (Cefuroxime) 250 mg twice a day for seven days along with Tablet Chymoral AP (Aceclofenac and Paracetamol) twice a day for a week. If pain is severe, take tablet Drotin MF (Drotaverine and Mefenamic acid) as and when required.
