I am having irregular periods for last 4 years.Normally I got periods in each 2 months gap.This time it has been 6 months ,i got no periods.so that I consulted doctor,she told because of PCOS you are getting irregular periods.She advised me to do excercise and balance diet.she refered one medicine that is MEPRATE. I took that medicine for 5 days.I got periods after after one week of the completion of medicine.Doctor also told me whenever you are nt getting periods for 45 days then u can take same medicine again.So,can u plz suggest me what I should do now.
