    irregular menstrual periods, please help

    Im a 32 year old female with irregular menstrual periods, I had normal periods all my life until about two years ago, I didnt get a period for two months, then I got it and it was horrible. I had severe clots and it wasnt like a normal period. It was extremely heavy and lasts up to a month long. This has been going on for two years now. The dr has been giving me progesterone but it doesnt help. My hair started falling out a year ago and now my glucose is on the high side. I take medicine for High blood pressure. Im getting so fusterated and dont know what do anymore. My thyroid was tested and is on the boderline for underactive. I have no polyops and dont have any pain with my periods. Please help.

    What kind of tests has your doctor run? What else has been rules out so far? Have you had your blood tested? Had an ultrasound? How's your iron? There are things your doctor could test for that you haven't mentioned so I'm not even going to attempt to guess what's up with you with less info than a doc. If you have any more info, it might help us guess.

    Perhaps you could use a second opinion from another gynecologist.

    sounds a lot like PCOS

    irregular periods, weight gain, acne, hair loss, growing hair where it shouldn't, infertility, insulin resistance, just to name a few are symptoms...

    I control my symptoms with metformin. there is a PCOS board here, you may want to pop in for some opinions.
