Question: Pms after pills without period

 Ludivine - Fri Oct 28, 2005 8:53 pm

I haven't had my period since my last one(march), after i stopped the pill (Diane 35) In January.
I have seen my GP and I'm now followed by a gynecologist.
I've done some blood test: everything ok except my Iron level. Pap Smear and Pelvic ultra sound ok.
She thinks it might be the fact that I was underweight. I've put on about 5 kgs in 3 months.
I've done some futher blood tests: mainly for my hormones.

I'm writing because I still feel a bit tired, have mood swings, low sex drive...
I have head aches since Monday, it stops then comes back, just like the pms. Today I feel bloated and my tumy is a bit sore. HOpe I'll have my period, can't believe I want them back.

Thanks for any suggestions to get rid of these symptoms

User avatar Hi Ludivine,
Iron deficiencies may certainly cause fatigue. However, since all of your studies have come back essentially normal to present has there been any mention of a referral to an Endocrinologist since in my opinion this is certainly warranted.
