Dear Nelisa

The symptoms that you described are in keeping with ovulatory dysfunction and hormone imbalance. One should seriously consider polycystic ovaries as a diagnosis. I suggest you visit a gynaecologist for a full hormone profile and pelvic ultrasound scanning. Should fertility be desired than it might be necessary to induce ovulation by means of tablets or a combination of injections and tablets depending on the extent of the problem.
Very rarely, ovarian failure can occur even at this early age and hence I would stress the urgency of the gynaecological visit.
