Period problems long, long time, doctors don't care

I'm getting tired of this.

For 5 years straight, I had no period. Doctors didn't care.

Most of last year, I got it back and it was regular, doctors didn't want to check out why it came back.

Now it's gone again for about 3 months. I am not sexually active. I actually had a doctor today say "I don't care". She thinks it's PCOS which she says isn't a big deal. They never tested me for PCOS, if there is a test for it.

They won't check me out, though they have done two pap smears on me, one last year and one this year that came back fine.

I am finally going to go to a gyno, but will they care? Is it necessary??? I don't want to go to this appointment and they said "I don't care" and shove me out the door.

Very unhappy here.

Re: Period problems long, long time, doctors don't care

Wow, I come back days later and nobody has said one thing... Anyway, I'm going to the gyno tomorrow to see what's up. I hope my problem is discovered this time and I am not tossed out the door for having no problem!!!

Re: Period problems long, long time, doctors don't care

Some women simply don't have regular periods. I have several friends who would have them only once or twice a year. Unless there is an obvious underlying problem, it really doesn't matter. It was just their "normal". Now, if you want to get pregnant, that might be an issue but you didn't mention it so am assuming not. If the gyno gives you a clean bill, don't worry about it...

Gyno said I had PCOS and just need hormone treatment.
