Dear Goldi

To remove Uterine fibroids, we recommend you to take one dose of Calcaria Carbonica 200 - once only. It is a homeopathic remedy. This should dissolve the fibroids within within 15 days. Then get it checked by a doctor. If fibroids there are still any remnants of fibroids , use Ashoka as follows, since it is an appropriate remedy for Uterine fibroids. However, it is not certain how long will it to take it for the fibroids to dissolve.
We suggest you to take it in the powdered form. Half teaspoon with warm milk once a day for about 3 days. Then, get your fibroids checked by a doctor. And write back to us about the status of the condition.

PAtience Did you go for an ultrasound. It is recommended that you get yourself diagnosis first. And share what ever the doctor says. Pelvic Ultrasound is what you need to get done.
Because all these symptoms are of the disease PCOS. All the best

Boil 2 tablespoon of powdered bark of Ashoka in a glass of water, until water remains to half. Now filter this decoction and drink it twice a day. Try this for a week, if it suits you then continue for 15 days. Keep a close eye on any symptoms you observe during these days. Consult your health care provider before you try any medicine.

Patience, I just scrolled above and saw that you have been posting the same query many times, so I would ask you that did you get your ultrasound done? The two users have suggested you to go for that . Even i would ask you to do the same. Until you do not get your pelvic ultrasound done, the reason can not be known behind the scanty periods and the failure to conceive. So please get it done. You were already given a wise advice my friend.
