Hello Doctor, I am suffering from pcod since menarche. I have periods naturally only once a year.I am underweight since past 7 months. No thyroid problem and even the hb in blood is 13.1. I am taking oral contraceptive pills in order to regulate periods. I drink around 5-6 litres water and pee even during the night. There's lots of hairfall and skin gets dry. I have read that pcod people have a risk of getting type 2 diabetes. I need your advice .
