okay thankyou
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 6 days ago.

In PCOS, multiple ovarian cysts are seen on ultrasound.

To stop excessive bleeding/prolonged period;

You would be prescribed cyklokapron or Tranexamic Acid/Ethamsylate. You may have to put on hormones.

Following are the options;


1) Progestins

2) Gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist; expensive

3) Danazol

4) Oral contraceptive pills.


I hope your symptoms resolve soon.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need more information.

These are very mildly deranged.

These are not likely responsible for prolonged bleeding.

Customer: replied 6 days ago.

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 6 days ago.

Mildly deranged means nothing worrisome and would not affect bearing of children.
