DR Archana Bajaj Good Afternoon, My daughter aged 15 has irregular periods, how can we correct it. Dis Pelvis scans couple of times and all seems to be fine. She is 5.3" of height and weighs around 66kgs.
Ans: Menstrual irregularity at age 15. It is very common to have irregular paid periods in the initial years of menopause anarchy, so having irregular periods. For the first 2 or 3 years, when the period when monarchy begins is quite common. If the ultrasound of the pelvis is fine and the hormonal assessment is normal, like thyroid, prolactin levels, insulin levels are all fine and the FSH, LH levels are fine, it should not be a cause of concern. I do not think regulating the menses menses at such an early age is recommended. However, since she is 53 and ways 66 kilos, maybe optimising her weight by about 2 or 3 kilos might be helpful. Other than that, lifestyle modification, regular exercise, eating a judiciously avoiding junk food, or decreasing the amount of sweets and junk Maida. Potatoes, sugar, rice, EC may help, and increasing proteins in the diet may be helpful. Other than that, if the hemoglobin levels and hormonal profile is normal, I don't think it's a huge cause for concern.
