I am almost 21 years old and I have never had a period in my life.My doctors say I have a low LH and FSH, However, they say that I have developed fine. They keep throwing out the possibility that I just need to take horomones, however I just have a strange feeling that there is something else wrong with me besides horomone imbalances. I am about 50 lbs over weight and I have a severe eating problem. I never feel like I am full. I could eat 6 sandwiches, sit for 10 minutes and then eat another 6 with out feeling full. I sometimes have cramps in my abdomine, headaches, lots of allergies, sebhoric dermititis, and joint and muscle pains. I sometimes feel alittle depressed. I get aggitated alot. If you have any answers please help!!!

  • You need a thorough exam by a gynecologist, endocrinologist and geneticist (perhaps). It's obviously not normal.

  • Have you had your cortisol levels checked? Cortisol causes raging hunger... Also you might want to ask for an ultrasound of your ovaries to check for cysts, to rule out PCOS.
