I have a question...

I have a question that Im too embarrassed to talk to a doctor in person about. Last year I was having periods that were lasting for months. They then out me on birth control to stop it, and it did for a while. It started lasting longer amounts of time and they told me to stop taking it, and that helped it. My concern now is that I am 17-years-old and I have not developed breast at all. I worry a lot and I often get bothered by people talking too much. My sister, who used to be big into learning about medicine, believes I have some sort of ovary disorder. Is there anything I can do about this?

Doctor's Assistant: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?

No, I am not in pain, but ever since they stopped the birth control I have had a regular cycle.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
