Subjective parameters like Duration of menstruation, Gap between two cycles, Pain during menstruation, Quantity of menstrual bleeding, Acne, Hirsutism, Acanthosis nigracans, Obesity are taken and results were analyzed statistically before and after treatment. Group 1 showed that 10% of the patients recovered completely, 55.09% recovered moderately and 35% remains unchanged. Group 2 showed that 10% of the patients recovered completely, 45.66% moderately and 44% remains unchanged. Group 3 showed that 0% of the patients recovered completely, 52% recovered moderately and 48% remains unchanged.
