In that two times when I went for treatment I was treated for my other diseases which use to develop during the periods. First time It was throat infection. After treating this , I got date. After two months Urinary track infection, After treating this I got date. So My irregular period was never treated. Acne developed intensely and visited dermatologist. He suggested blood test for all the hormonal imbalance and ultrasound. Result was normal for blood test ! but Ultrasound showed multiple cyst in ovaries, fibroid in uterus, Enlarged ovaries. Now I have to visit gynecologist with this test ! but whom to trust, what if they make to run another 5 times until they collect enough money and leave me with no solution? Its been one year I am suffering! In deep distress ! need advice from an ethicalone
