Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

you could have something called polycystic ovarian syndrome.

Dr. David :

where your ovaries produce excessive androgen hormones

Dr. David :

and causes irregular cycles.

Dr. David :

you could be pregnant as well.

Dr. David :

this needs to be checked.

Customer:

I am not pregnant my doctor has checked for that

Dr. David :

that is good.

Dr. David :

you need to be checked for polycystic ovarian syndrome.

Dr. David :

with blood tests to check for androgen levels.

Dr. David :

and also ultrasounds of your ovaries.

Dr. David :

your thyroid hormone levels need to be checked as well.

Customer:

I have had lots of blood tests to check for thyroid, pregnancy, and some other tests but I dont know what they were for, they have all come back ok.ould they see the polycystic ovarian syndrome on the ultrasound?

Dr. David :

yes, they can see if you have cysts in your ovaries

Dr. David :

and they can check for fluid in your pelvis.

Dr. David :

those will be important to know.

Dr. David :

ultrasound is the best next step

Dr. David :

CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis is good as well

Dr. David :

good luck

Dr. David :

let me know what it shows.

Customer:

My mother told me last week that her and my grandmother suffered from clotting, I have had no clots but could this be causing a blockage at all?

Customer:

Could the clotting be a possibility?

Customer:

Hello Dr David....are you still there?

Dr. David :

sorry.

Dr. David :

I was with a patient.

Dr. David :

clotting would be unlikely and rare in a 37 year old patient

Dr. David :

your symptoms don't sound like they are from a blood clot.

Dr. David :

your symptoms sound like they could be due to a hormone imbalance from your ovaries

Dr. David :

hormone disregulation can cause weight gain, loss of periods

Dr. David :

you could also have a vaginal bacterial infection or fungal infection causing change in smells.

Customer:

ok, Ill let you know the outcome, thank you Dr David

best of luck
