    NO periods..EVER
    WishfulThinker88 posted:
    Hello, I'm 25 years old, healthy female and I've never had a period..EVER. I've been tested repeatedly with ultrasounds and my obgyn couldn't find anything. I was told birth control would help this, but even the lowest dosage of birth control made me incredibly sick. i got my period but I bled constantly for over two months and had to stop. I've tried birth control 4 times and I always get the same results. I refuse to do it again but that's the only thing my ob gyn keeps suggesting. I don't have PCOS (no cysts whatsoever) I was tested for diabetes and didn't have that either. I'm healthy height and weight 5'4 140lbs. I did go through puberty but just never had a period. I plan to start going to another obgyn to figure this out but can someone give me some advice? Me and my husband want to start a family but I know that right now there is pretty much no chance of getting pregnant as I have never had a period without the help of birth control. Please help

    Hello WishfulThinker88 and I am sorry to hear of your difficulties with trying to conceive. I think your plan to see a new doctor sounds like a good one. It is often suggested that one considers seeing a reproductive endocrinologist or fertility specialist when a standard Ob/Gyn is unable to find a solution.

    Hopefully some of the other ladies here will be able to share their stories with you.

    Insist on being referred to a Reproductive Endocrinologist. I only had periods maybe 3 times a year and because of this, my uterine lining kept getting thicker and thicker. My RE did the necesarry testing and found out that I had 4 polyps. Not only did I have to have these removed before they could become cancerous, he had to scrape me 3 times during the same surgery (D&C with hysteroscapy).

    I feel really lucky that my OB/GYN referred me because I had no idea that I had some of these issues and over time, it could have jeopardized my health. Let us know what you find out.

    Do you have any updates on your situtation? I haven't had a period in a few years and I'm 23, so I too am in a similar situation....:( All the best.

    Hello wishfulthinker88!

    I am 20 years old and in the same boat as you, and im glad that you posted this!! I have never had a period either in my ENTIRE life besides being on birth control. Now i never got sick from it just terrible cramps. So I also stopped taking it and ask my OBGYN further questions. She did test and also told me nothing was wrong. So I have been on progesterone and clomid now 3 months, and so far I have no luck! :( its really sad but they say it usually happens in months 3-6. So maybe the new doctor will give you better insight and possibly medicine to get you on your way....I wish you all the best and all I can say is stay positive :)
