    Just got first period after 1.5 years without menstruation
    An_267727 posted:
    Hi. I am 21 years old. I think its worth noting that I am healthy, active, and 125 lbs. It has been 1.5 years since my last period (I do not take the pill), until last week when I randomly got my period out of nowhere. It was just like it used to be -- about 4 days of moderate bleeding with 1 day of no bleeding in the middle. Over the past year, I went to 3 Obgyn's and they all told me not to worry.. went to 3 family doctors and all told me it seemed very strange. Got blood work done 3 months ago and they said my thyroid was fine, but that my "estrogen and other lady hormones" were low.

    Other important symptoms:
    Extreme chronic fatigue, no matter how much a eat, sleep, exercise
    Light headedness at least once per day
    Lack of sex drive
    Skin has yellowish tint
    Muscle weakness
    FREQUENT illness. In the past 6 months I have fallen ill with strep, common cold, nasal infection, bronchitis, and stomach flu. I'm sure I'm forgetting something else as well.

    Are all these symptoms as well as my missed period related to my hormones? Could I be anemic? Please help.
