I HAVE NOT HAD A PERIOD FOR 6 MONTHS. BEFORE THIS MY PERIODS

Resolved Question:

I HAVE NOT HAD A PERIOD FOR 6 MONTHS. BEFORE THIS MY PERIODS WERE IRREGULAR HEAVY AND PAINFULL AND PASSED BLOOD CLOTS. I STARTED MY PERIODS WHEN I WAS 13 AND THEY WERE REGULAR AND NOT VERY PAINFULL AND NOT VERY HEAVY AND DID NOT PASS BLOOD CLOTS. THEY STARTED TO BECOME IRREGULAR AFTER 15 YEARS, I HAVE NEVER HAD SEXUALL INTERCOURSE SO I AM NOT PREGNANT. I HAVE HAD BLOOD TESTS DONE THAT CAME BACK NORMAL AND A SCAN HAS COME BACK NORMAL. SHOULD I ASK MY DOCTOR TO BE REFFERD TO A GYNOCOLOGIST AND MY DOCTOR HAS NEVER EXAMINED ME INTERNALLY DO YOU THINK HE SHOULD HAVE EXAMINED ME. I WOULD APPRECIATE SOME ADVICE AS I AM GETTING RATHER CONCERNED ABOUT THIS. I AM GETTING LOTS OF ABDOMINAL PAINS THAT FEEL LIKE PERIOD PAINS.

Hi

 

Yes you should definitely see a gynecologist.

 

You have " secondary amenorrhea" and at six months this needs to be fully investigated.

 

 

The link below gives a comprehensive list of possible causes as well as details on a suitable work-up.

WHAT COULD BE CAUSING THE LOSS OF PERIODS AND PAINS IN MY ABDOMAN

Expert:  Dr J Burk replied 7 years ago.

Hi

 

There are not so many causes of your absent periods that are associated with pain - but we would need to consider adhesions within the uterus as well as certain types of ovarian disease.
