Weight gain & irreg perio

I have been having irregular periods and everytime I am given 21 tabs to regularize the cycle but it is never fixed. I have been putting on a lot of weight due to this. Is there a permanent fix for this?

Hello there. Oral pills which you are talking about are known to cause weight gain. Get your USG done to rule out poly cystic ovarian syndrome. Consult a gynaecologist near you to get evaluated. Regards
