Customer Question

I did not have a period for June-August and within those 3 missed periods I was treated for h. Pylori and also had my gallbladder taken out in August. I finally had a period in September and now in October I do not have one yet again. I constantly am hot and sweating which I never used to have this problem.

I am also only 20 years old and have a family history of ovarian cancer.

the menstrual cycle is a very sensitive preocess which can be influenced by many effects, surgeries and infections are part of it. I would suggest to do a checkup blood values regarding hormones and thyroid function, if the result is normal, the use of a low dosed pill can resolve the problem.

Don´t worry, a correlation with cancer is definitely excluded.
