Hi. I’m hoping someone here might be experiencing the same thing I am. I’ve basically had amenorrhoea for the past 5 years and the doctors can’t find a case for it. I’ve had so many tests done and they all come back negative or normal.

The weirdest thing is that all my hormone tests all come back normal and I am ovulating too. (Abnormal hormone levels and not ovulating are the most common causes). The doctors ran out of physical tests to do and decided it must be psychological but after finishing up seeing a psychologist and doing some different therapies the psychologists have said it’s not psychological. The doctors are all out of ideas now. I’m really not sure what to do about it any more.

My periods were normal and regular before they stopped. I’m just stuck for ideas and everyone else I can find with similar problems all have at least one abnormal hormone level etc.

My only symptoms are-
Thinning pubic hair

  • OK... so you've been told your hormones are OK. Perhaps, then it is time to get a full nutritional evaluation. Some may require blood testing, some urine testing, such as for iodine deficiency. Then there can be testing for values of some nutrients inside your cells such as done by SpectraCell laboratories. You might also look into doctors who use Genova Diagnostics or Great Plains laboratory. I presume that when your thyroid was checked they actually checked all your actual thyroid hormone levels (T3, T4, rT3, rT4, antibodies, etc. etc see here for more on thyroid testing. )
