Customer Question
period. Over the last...
I am a 44 year old female and have always had a regular period. Over the last couple years I had started having periods every few weeks. In December I had a DNC, and Dr found polups on my uterus but after the DNC I was back to normal for 4 mths. My question is I have not had a period since april, should I consult my dr or wait another month. I had my tubes tied fifteen years ago.

I would consult your doctor if you go 3 months without a period. Your doctor could then give you some progesterone pills to bring on a period. That would prevent extra buildup of the uterine lining or formation of another polyp. The fact that you haven't had a period since April means that you haven't ovulated since April. If you don't ovulate, but your ovaries are still making estrogen, the the lining can build up too much. Best wishes.

When it's been 3 months since your last period, then I'd go.

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.
