    Went To The Gyno..Tell Me If This Sounds Normal!

    ok so i went to planned parenthood where i can get free services because i have no insurance. I told her that i havent had my period since sept(its now march), I started having lower back pain, Feel like im getting it then i dont. I explained when i do get it, i bleed dark black like tar and its thick, cramps, i've passed out, thrown up, etc. According to her she thinks nothing is wrong and that its all normal with me and i just need birth control...How can all of that be normal? Im not 15, I'm 24...what to do..

I usually am not late however, I have now been discharging brown and blood, but not like a period for 2 weeks. She took blood and put me on estrogen. She said everything felt okay. i go back in 3 months. Let me know how you make out

    Thank You. I will keep you updated for sure, I'm going tonight. The only reason why i dont think its PCOS is because i havent gained weight, or have more facial hair than normal lol...IDK Guess i'll find out soon enough!

    Well there is something called PCOS (Polly Cystic Overian Syndrom), and that is what this sounds like to me. It is when you have more than once cyst on your ovaris that causes irregular periods and the more cysts the less likely you are to even obtain a period. Dont worry the cyst is begni and can be taken care of easily. It doesnt sound like cancer to me. One other thing that I can think of off hand that this may be is a hormonal imbalance. Ask your doctor to check your T3 levels and your levels of TSH in your body to check for a thyroid dissorder. You may also want him to check your estrogen and progesterone levels in your body to see if they are off. Keep us up dated as to how your appointment goes. Hope I have eased your worry. (oh, something else is stress causes irregular periods and may even cause no period at all! Some times birth control may help to regualte, and it is good to take even if you are a virgin)

    Alison H. I agree with the question you raised! Does tent sex count!? The only time I had sex outside was on a camping trip (technically inside) a tent....

  • Reply to Underwear or not?

    I do — but I'm so prone to UTIs (thanks, menopause!) that I'm afraid not to. I USED to skip underwear years ago, but it's been a LONG time.
