Hello doctor,

I am a lean PCOD patient for eight years. My periods are such that if they come on their own, they do not stop without taking medicine. Also, they do not come regularly every month. They usually come after three months. Right now, they are not stopping. I am bleeding heavily for 11 days. Prior to these 11 days, I had spotting for ten days. That means I am not normal for 21 days.

I have started taking Styplon since yesterday, thrice a day, two tablets. They are still not reducing (periods). What should I do? Kindly guide me.



Welcome to

No need to worry. Your problems are due to hormonal imbalance. I suggest you take tablet Aloes compound (Ferrous Sulphate) two tablets twice daily, M 2 Tone syrup (Ashoka, Lodhra, Ashwagandha, Cedrus Deodara, Kasisa Bhasma, Mesua Ferrea, Nardostachys Jatamansi, and Shatavari) two teaspoons twice daily and Pushyanug Churna (Padma Kesara) one teaspoon twice daily for one month. Avoid sour curd, spicy food, cold drinks, etc. Take Madhur Tikta Kashaya rasa dominant simple food like coconut water, pomegranate juice, etc.

I hope this was helpful.
