You may be having polycystic ovarian disease...Normally people with this will have anovlation (no egg release), oligomenorrhea (scanty periods) or even amenorrhea (no menstrual period). But it can also have symptoms like polymenorrhea means cycles occur too often as you are experiencing. For this you have to -continue your treatment for PCOS with drugs which regulate menstruation and induce ovulation, insulin sensitizers as given by your gynaecologist -try to reduce the weight and maintain your BMI in between 19 to 24. Do regular exercise to maintain the weight. -try to avoid worries as they will further increase the hormonal imbalance. -once ovulation occurs plan intercourse during that period which will increase the chances of fertilization. -In dietary modifications, You should decrease carbohydrate intake, take foods made-up of whole grains like whole wheat bread, Decrease fat intake and increase protein content. Take high fiber diet, fruits, vegetables but avoid starchy vegetables like potatoes. Take plenty of water avoid sugar drinks...Consult nearest gynecologists they will do the needful.
