User avatar Dear Foorb,

There is a condition called premature menopause but it occurs in the mid/late thirties and you are too young.

Most probably you have an endocrine disturbance or polycystic ovarian syndrome. Also, some of medications can cause menstrual disturbances, i am not sure about your medication history including oral contraceptive pills.

i suggest that you be referred to a specialist in infertility.

Thank you very much for using our website https://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.

Yasser Mokhtar, M.D.
