No period for almost 7 years
yjr414 posted:
I am a relatively healthy 29 year old, but I havent had a period in almost 7 years. I have started growing dark facial hair I have to wax, and cant seem to lose weight. I went to my Primary Care Dr and he ran a bunch of bloodwork, hormone, thyroid, etc and everything came back normal. Wondering if anyone else has had this issue?

Sounds like PCOS.

From WebMD:

"PCOS, or polycystic ovarian syndrome, is a common hormonal disorder in women that with interferes with the growth and release of eggs from the ovaries, or ovulation. It is the most common cause of infertility among women. PCOS occurs when a woman's body overproduces sex hormones, called androgens. The hormone imbalance prevents fluid-filled sacs in the ovaries from breaking open and releasing mature eggs. The fluid-filled sacs bunch together, causing many tiny cysts. Symptoms of PCOS include missed periods, abnormal facial and body hair growth, acne, and weight gain. PCOS may run in families."

My Dr originally thought that was the issue but my estrogen levels and testosterone levels came back normal.
