| | Reading of both no estrogen and no androgen plus genetic issues?
I, due to a secondary autoimmune disease sort of like Lupus have been getting tests and examinations, literally hundreds. Some of these have concerned the doctors though they have nothing to do with the disease.
I was raised in a small religious cult which believed in no doctors, no contact with the 'outsiders' if possible. So when I did not have my period, it was anorexia.
Now it turns out that I have a chromosome 5 abnormality, I only have a left ovary, and no androgen or estrogen at all, even though I have been on replacement estrogen. I have breasts, and it is wondered if my body has stopped producing both. I don't know how it is I can't function without either but I seem to. I also have two (or three) extra ribs, and other abnormalities of the vaginal/uterus area.
While previous thought to be sterile, I have an ovary, and it is blood connected, which means there might be viable eggs? Is that true? I know someone will say I need to see a specialist, but which do you recommend, none will take it, but bounce me from endrocrinology to gyno and back. With this disease, I want to know if it is possible for me to get pregnant, particularly if I am not producing any estrogen - can I bring a child to term. And don't I need androgen for something?
