Avatar f tn At that point, I would then do some blood work including prolactin, thyroid, fsh and lh levels. I would also ask questions about weight loss and exercise. Stress can play a role in causing menstrual periods to stop temporarily too. Good luck!
Avatar n tn Causes of secondary amenorrhea include stress and anxiety, malnutrition, depression, overexercising, sudden weight loss or gain (obesity),thyroid disorders and hormonal imbalance due to polycystic ovarian syndrome(PCOS).Smoking is also associated with secondary amenorrhea. Sometimes tumors of the ovaries and brain may also cause absence of menstruation. Some of these causes are modifiable like if you are having stress then yoga and meditation and antianxiety medicines can help you out.
Avatar f tn They're going to go over blood work (hormones, A1C, the works) and talk about how the diet is working. I won't see dramatic weight loss in three weeks (or I would hope not, that would be scary) but we're hoping for about three pounds lost just by changing diet alone. I also have to check in with Katie to make sure the pills are working right.

Avatar f tn My sister in law missed 3 or 4 periods in a row and then low and behold it came (and she wasnt pregnant, she was going to her doctors and got tests done) Other things can make you late, change in diet, stress, recent weight gain or weight loss. I would call your doctor they can do a blood pregnancy test on you and tell you for sure and if it comes up negative they might want to see you if they can figure out why you are late.
Avatar f tn Efficacy DMPA is an extremely effective contraceptive option. Neither varying weight nor use of concurrent medications has been noted to alter efficacy. Within the first year of use, the failure rate is 0.3%. Advantages DMPA does not produce the serious adverse effects of estrogen, such as thromboembolism. Diminished anemia occurs. Dysmenorrhea is decreased. The risks of endometrial and ovarian cancer are decreased.
Avatar f tn Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Provera.
Avatar f tn My doctor says if eat less sugar and stop wasting calories on drinks, it will help with weight loss. Right now i only drink water, green tea (hot and cold) and seltzer. I buy heathly snacks and walk alot more. When I first started on the diet, i lost 13lbs easy. But then I stopped losing weight. So a friend on here suggested I take up walking. So started to walk about 30 mins a day and that started the weight coming off again. Good luck everybody!

Avatar n tn [Other than many repeated viral illnesses in the past six months] I am at an ideal body weight, I exercise 3-4 times weekly, and I don't smoke. I take Premarin and progesterone daily. This past winter, after suffering a fairly severe flu, I began to experience what has been diagnosed as inappropriate sinus tachycardia for the first time. For the 37 years prior, I never had any cardio issues whatsoever.

Avatar n tn put me on medroxyprogesterone for 10 days. I held off taking it because I really thought I was pregnant. I gave in and took it. 7 days after my last pill I had a lot of pain and cramping and passed a large clot that looked like tissue (I had a miscarrage at age 41) and it looked the same. Let me know what happened with you. This all happened yesterday 1-25-06. Makes me realize next time listen to my body.
1340863 tn?1366644684 My stimulated cycles consist of Gonal-f injections along with Cetratide. I usually have the trigger injection on day 10. I put on weight and get fairly emotional. The Cetratide stings but other than that, I seem to handle them OK. My retreival is on day 13. Just waiting for AF to finally appear so I can start.
