My periods stopped. - February 1st 2010, 08:52 PM

My periods stopped three months ago. I'm on the pill but thats not the reason why. I have this condition called Secondary Amenorrhea - basically after having regular periods, they just stop. Causes include stress, anxiety, weight loss/gain. And I wasn't afraid because it happened when I was annorexic too, but now I've been to my doctors, and they want to send me for a scan next week - they said it could be a sign of ovarian cysts, which is what my mum had. Now I'm even more worried because she had a hysterectomy. Can this be a genectic thing? (the cysts not the histerectomy)

Re: My periods stopped. - February 4th 2010, 07:25 PM

i had an ovarian cyst that eventually went away, but i had to have like two or three transvaginal ultrasounds which were a little uncomfortable but it was to see the cyst and make sure its okay, eventually by october 2007 it went away i had it from may 2007 to october 2007. i also had my period stop a long long time ago like in early 2008, but it was due to me not having enough estrogen and other hormones so i was put on loestrin Fe 1/20 ever since then i have had a normal period and i havent had a cyst since now i am not sure its genetic, you should ask your doctor if its genetic or not, i really cant answer that for you i'm sorry i hope you find the answer though good luck
