Question: Lack of Menstral Cycles

 Kayte - Sun Jun 22, 2003 8:30 pm


I have had absent menstral cycles since Feb. Before Feb they were very irregular! Came everyother week for a while, then only came 1 day.

I was given progestrone to restart menstral cycle. I am wondering how long before it will work? I was given it June 12. Finshed June 21. I have some spotting. I was expecting a full cycle.

Should I call Doc? And ask her why it didn't produce a regular cycle?

When do I demand a ultrasound to make sure nothing is going on? Why?????

User avatar Kayte,
Nice to see you agian. How's the shin problem?
Sorry for the tardy response. I think you should have contacted your gynecologist by now. She would be the best to know when to order an ultrasound. How old are you and how long have you been menstruating?

The shin is okay- not broken, but bruise isn't completely gone either.But it hurts every now and then when I take a step.

I have been menstrating since I was 12, I am now 29. I do have an appointment being set up I am currently on vacation. In sunny hot arizona.

Periods have been irregular from day 1. I have been on bc since I was 12, I am still on it to try and create a more regular period.

I don't know if this has anything to do with the lack of cycles tho, i have been diagnosed with low iron anemia. i am on multi vitamins with iron. Could this be the reason?

Just curious!

Thank you for your relpy.
