Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
Hello, I'm Dr Manos, M.D., board certified ObGyn. I'd like to help you with my thoughts. At 44 years old it not likely to be your average menopause. You need to understand that a woman's cycle is controlled by the nypothalmus area of the brain with a direct link to the adjacent pituitary gland that is in synch with the ovaries. It is likely that your neurological problems shutdown the ovaries via the pituitary gland. My concern is that you have not been shutdown as in menopause as your ovaries may have been producing estrogen and this unopposed estrogen could effect the lining of the uterus. You need to make an appointment for a Gyn exam, pelvic ultrasound and a blood test to see what your pituitary gland is doing. You may very well be fine but the exam and basic tests will confirm things. It's a very interesting case and determining where you stand in regard to your cycles will be a relief to know. Plus I'm very interested to see what shows up with your circumstances.
This is Dr Manos again and what have you done since I gave you my response to your question?
