I am 51 year old female. Never been on birth control. Not in relationship. I have had a full CBC and Metabolic Panel, thyroid, ferritin, DHEA, B12, Globulin, Progesterone and Testosterone. Everything was normal except Testosterone 4 x ref range and Free Testosterone 14.7 range up to 6.4. Gyn. asked if I was with man on testosterone. Not around anyone and do not go to a gym. Do not take any pills or creams or herbs. He didn't seem overwhelmed by it. But I can't come up with any reason it would be elevated. Should I pursue further or is this possibly just normal for me? I still have full cycles and my FSH 5.9. I have no symptoms of hair growth, deep voice or anything associated with it. Thanks.JA: What medications do you take daily?

I often get what feels like menstrual cramps that last for days but have nothing to do with where I am at in my menstrual cycle. They even got super severe one time, but eventually subsided. Now when I get them they can come and go at any time. The pain is mild to moderate. The duration is unpredictable. I'm concerned and I don't see a whole lot online that says what this might or might not be. I don't have any other symptoms.

I'm 38. I have been off birth control years and have had
I'm 38. I have been off birth control for four years and have had very regular 28 day cycles. I've had 2 pregnancies and 2 miscarriages. Last mc was December. Since February my cycles a little shorter, about 25 days. It has now been 35 days since last period. I'm having mild menstrual type cramps for over a week but no period. I've taken several hpt, all negative. The symptoms feel same as last pregnancy but still negative tests. D/o conception would have to be June 2nd. Could I be pregnant with neg. tests at this point? Should I be concerned something more serious?

I am have period problems. I am considered obese and have
Hello. I am have period problems. I am considered obese and have always had irregular periods that took months to arrive and when they come finally, they are very heavy. But my last period like that was in July. Starting last month I started a very light period at the same time as the girls in my office. It stayed light for 6 days and thenights went away. This month I started at the same time as the same girls again, but it was very light again and has been on and off for almost 3 weeks now. Never ends up on a pad or underwear. Just when I wipe. I have been under high stress since January and I dont know what is happening. But I'd really like to see a real period. What could this be?

C. I have a question. I have had right sided pelvic pain
Hi Dr C. I have a question for you. I have had right sided pelvic pain with my last few cycles. It is a well localized pain sharpish in nature. It comes and goes but lasts for a few days and stops once my cycle is over. It is not menstrual cramps. In fact, my cramps feel different also - instead of feeling like cramps they feel like actual pain. This cycle I have also been feeling nauseous. If it was not related to m y cycle I would almost think its in the area of my appendix, but definitely only there when I have my period.
