hasn't been menstruating for 2 & 1/2 years

  1. I haven't been menstruating since March of 2005, I know I'm at risk for osteoporosis, but have anyone ever gotten amenorrhea for this long and what other dangers am I putting my body through?
     
  2. You really should check with a doctor. I have PCOS and one of the symtpoms is no periods, but when I'd go for two or three months my doctor would give me provera to make me get my period. Of cousre now I have a Mirena IUD and don't get periods but I'm also not supposed to now. Still, better safe than sorry.
     
  3. You need to see your doctor. VITAL.
     
  4. 2 & 1/2 years!? Agree with everyone, go see a doctor ASAP!
     
  5. Agreed, go to your gyneocologist now. Not healthy in any way.
     
  6. Are you considerably underweight?
     
  7. I'm 5'1 and 93lbs. They say that's underweight, but I also have an ovarian cyst. I suspect that it might cause my lack of menstruation.
     
  8. How old are you?
     
  9. I am 47 and havent had one for almost 3 years. When I did get it it would be for maybe 2 or 3 days tops. I havent gone thru menopause and I am not pre menopausal. All my hormones are normal and so is everything else. No cysts, bumps, lumps.

    I HAD a very, very stressful job at the time, working 12+ hours a day, so they chalked it up to stress. I have since quit that job and relocated and my life is very smooth and unstressful. I expected to get it. Nothing.

    I have been tested 4 times and everything is fine.
     
  10. Have you seen a gynecologist about this condition? If not, I would as soon as possible!
     
  11. I just turned 21. I saw my gynecologist, but he just prescribed my with birth control.
     
  12. I AM in ALMOST the same boat!! I havent gotten my period in YEARSSSSSS!!! And I go to the general phys. and she says "you probably have PCOS" bc of my wieght absence of period and other things, I go to the gyno and get like every test in creation and they cant find anyhting, it is sooo frustrating. Literally this has been happening since I was in High SChool. Everyone thinks I have PCOS until the ultra sounds and they come back clear and then I just get put on BC, honestly I need someone to figure out whats wrong :cursing:
     
  13. OMG! I know exactly how you feel. I've done tests and everything, can't find what's wrong with me, exact that I have a cyst, but it harmless. It is frustrating. I feel so helpless.
     
  14. I know and it worries me, because i know i want to have children someday and I think what if I cant and I want to know if there is something I can do now to help me when i do want to have kids.....not that im married, engaged, or even have a boyfriend. Im 25 and I hope one day I will have the chance to have a family. Honestly I dont know what to do? My dermatologist gave me a number for an infertility specialist because he thinks I have PCOS (if that makes any sense at all)
     
  15. So do you have PCOS? You said the ultrasound results came in clear. Are you underweight? PCOS is very serious. I've heard of the effects it can produce.
