Women's Health - Niranjala

How can Dr. Niranjala help you?

Dr. Niranjala Nandakumar is our newest General Practitioner.

She has an interest in helping women with their health conditions, and a special interest in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) diagnosis and management.

Some symptoms of PCOS include:

  • Irregular periods. Having few menstrual periods or having periods that aren't regular are common signs of PCOS. So is having periods that last for many days or longer than is typical for a period. For example, you might have fewer than nine periods a year. And those periods may occur more than 35 days apart. You may have trouble getting pregnant.
  • Too much androgen. High levels of the hormone androgen may result in excess facial and body hair. This is called hirsutism. Sometimes, severe acne and male-pattern baldness can happen, too.
  • Polycystic ovaries. Your ovaries might be bigger. Many follicles containing immature eggs may develop around the edge of the ovary. The ovaries might not work the way they should.
