I am 29 years old and I have polycystic overies and thyroid due to which i dont get my periods regulary. Only if I take medicines I get my periods. Could you kindly advice me a home remedy for this.

The first thing you should know is that there are absolutely no remedies you can use to treat yourself. It is unwise to think that you can take care of problems such as polycystic ovarian disorder (PCOD) at home. Not only do you require a proper method of treatment for it, you would also have to follow some very strict medication plans for your treatment to be effective. If you are suffering from PCOD as well as thyroid problems then your situation becomes even more complicated. A delicate balance would have to be struck between the two problems together. It is absolutely imperative for you to visit a gynecologist for your PCOD as soon as possible. Your general practitioner is the best person to advise you about your thyroid problems. Once you have got the medical examination out of the way, you can begin proper treatment of your problems. Please do remember that if you do not follow an appropriate course of medication, there can be no scope of hope for a proper cure for your problems. Changes in your diet and lifestyle will only serve to assist you. But the primary cure will always come from medical treatments and options.

There are some diet and lifestyle changes you can make to take care of your problems. The first thing to do is to start a daily routine of exercise. This will help you with generally improving your health and immunity. If possible, you must try to do Yoga, preferably under the guidance of a licensed practitioner. If not, try to at least go for a 30 minute walk daily. This alone will help to improve your health tremendously. You must also start eating lightly. Do remember that weight gain is one of the commonest causes of PCOD. If you lose weight, you will find that the problem is automatically taking care of itself. However, this will not happen in a month or two. It has to be a dedicated effort and will take at least six months before you can see results. Be patient and most importantly, do not give up. Once your weight is in control you will also find that it will help to regulate your thyroid levels. For this particular problem, you should regulate your salt intake. This is the best solution. Whether you should reduce or increase your salt intake would depend upon whether you have hypo thyroidism or hyper thyroidism.
