No real period for 7 months?!! PLEASE HELP!
I am a 21 female and I started my period when I was 9. They were regular until I turned 13, and haven't been since.
I posted in March about my lack of periods and spotting. Well it is now October and nothing has changed. I haven't had a real period (mine last 5 days) in over 7 months! I had some spotting in February and something that produced 6 hours of extremely heavy bleeding, I had spotting in late August, and then again a few days ago. Still no period. The spotting still has a light salmon color to it and only lasts a day.
I went to my gyno in April and had an ultrasound of my ovaries, uterus, and kidneys. My ovaries had a few cysts on them (dr. not concerned), my uterus was a little thick (from the blood back up maybe?), and my kidneys were fine. I talk to my gyno and she diagnoised me with PCOS and switched me from Ortho Tri-Cyclin Lo to Yasmin. I changed my diet to lower carb and exercise 4 times a week. It didn't make a difference.
Lately, a week before my period is due, I have begun to get pretty bad pain that goes from my lower left side pelvic region to about the lower middle right side (sorry if that sounds confusing). This is new and hasn't happend before last month. It is an aching (almost flu like) pain and just is really uncomfortable.
Does anyone know what could be going on with me???? I am scheduled to see my gyno Nov. 30th, but if anyone has ANY information I would really appreciate it!
