Abnormal periods

I skipped my periods for two months. Then I had spotting for a month. I visited my nearest doctor and the sonography results showed that the uterus was bulky with thickness of 9.1 mm and a small cysts of less than 8mm size in both ovaries. It's been over a month now since the examination. My periods started again and now I my menstrual flow is very heavy. But the problem is that its been lasting for 10 days now with no sign of reduction. What should I do to regulate the cycle?

Fibroids and cysts can cause increased pain with menstruation as well as an overproduction of hormones. Hormonal regulation will ease PMS, heavy menses and provide you a more consistent menstrual cycle. If your doctor has not drawn blood, you may ask that they perform a PCOS panel and perform some monitoring of FSH and LH to understand your ovulation pattern.
