Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.

Please provide more information regarding your question so I can help you in detail.

Since how long are you missing your period without birth control?

Were your periods normal in early years?

Any history of weight gain?

Facial Hair?

Any history of thyroid problems?

Any ultrasound test done?

Did the doctor do ovulation study?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I started birthcontrol at 15 then stopped had my first period on my own on my 16 birthday after going months without having a period. Had it for 3 months in a row regularly. Then suddenly stopped. I went on birth control a year later for 2 years then went off birth control when I decided I wanted to have a baby. I did gain a warping 40 lbs that is very sunken to get rid of after graduating high school. I do experience facial hair here and there. No thyroid problem, no endocrine issues. I have done an ultrasound many years ago which I never got to discussed the result with my doctor. And no my doctor has not done a ovulation study.

Could it be because I was on birth control before starting my first period?
Expert:  Dr Anil Kumar replied 6 months ago.

I think your doctor should do a trans vaginal ultrasound to rule out Polycystic Ovarian Disorder.Also hypothyroidism should be ruled out as well.

Ovulation study basically check if you are ovulating or not.

Post pill amenorrhea is described as the loss of menstrual periods for at least 6 months after stopping birth control pills.
