Hi.

I have been suffering from this condition on/off for the past 5 years. The longest I have gone without having a period is 12 months. Currently it is 6 months since my last one.

I went to see my GP about this last October as my husband and I want to try for another baby and my GP just said that we must BD every 1-2 days and test every 4 weeks for pregnancy.
I told her that I think that I am also not ovulating as I do not have the symptoms of OV that I used to have, (really moody, increased body temp and increased discharge ect), and I have also been doing OV tests but had no possitive results.
She said that just because I didn't have a period it didn't mean I didn't OV and then sent me on my way.

I feel totally helpless, depressed and not a 'proper' woman. She did not listen to me and it felt like we were just going through the motions, just so she could tick off another name on her appointments!!

Is there anything that can be done to bring on a period without having to go on the pill, (as every doctor seems to want me to go on the pill!!)

Please help me,

Cathy xxx

  • Check out this information. It is probably Polycystic Ovarian Disease. It is caused by insulin resistance and that is caused by insulin receptors not working properly. This is usually the cause, but the articles mention other things that can cause it. http://women.webmd.com/tc/Missed-or-Irregular-Periods-Topic-Overviewhttp://women.webmd.com/tc/Polycystic-Ovary-Syndrome-PCOS-What-Happenshttp://www.webmd.com/video/metabolic-syndrome-xMore information can be found on this site:http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/p/pcos/intro.htm
