What Can cause me to not have a Period since December 23 2008... it''s now March 21st 2009!

A: Not medical advice - not an MD. If you know you are not pregnant, then you may want to have your prolactin levels checked. Prolactin is a hormone secreted from the pituitary gland. Excess prolactin can cause amenorrhea (absent periods) and can cause your body to produce milk (lactate). There are many things that can cause hyperprolatinemia (including a prolactinoma). http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003718.htm Another consideration: Due to the pain your having during sex and the amenorrhea - you may want to do some research on Polycystic Ovarian Disease. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000369.htm Good luck - hope you feel better soon. ...


Can yeast infections may cause late or missed periods

A: It is highly unlikely that a yeast infection would cause you to skip your periods. Problems with periods are a sure sign of ill-health and unless you are trying to get pregnant, a missed menstrual cycle can cause nightmares. If you are sure you are not pregnant, there are many other reasons that could have caused this. Stress: Stress today comes naturally to most people and even though it affects our life in many ways, we often are not able to get rid of it. Sometimes though the stress becomes too much for the body to bear and this affects the amount of hormones that the endocrine glands secrete. The hormonal imbalance prevents ovulation and therefore the periods get skipped. Disease: If...

What kind of birth control am I able to take while I am breastfeeding?

A: It is most preferable that you don''t ''take'' birth control but instead ''use'' birth control. The barrier methods of birth control, such as diaphragms or condoms, are safest for breastfeeding mothers. The hormonal methods of birth control may cause problems for some mothers. The combination type of birth control pills are never recommended, because they may alter the quality of the milk. The single ingredient, progestin-only birth control pills are the preferred method of hormonal birth control pills for nursing mothers; however, some mothers find that their milk supply decreases when they take these pills. Taking a birth control shot is risky, because this reduces...


Nausea caused by hormonal contraceptives

A: Hi! Many thanks for your question on eHealth forum! Pills and hormonal contraceptives of any kind can cause acidity if used for a long time. Take antacid gels and omeprazole (empty stomach in the morning) and see if it helps. If it does then it is due to acidity. Otherwise nausea can also be due to PCOD. Get an ultrasound for confirmation. After stopping any hormonal contraceptives, there occurs post pill amenorrhea, that can last upto 6 months. If it lasts longer, then the cause is investigated. If you want to start pills, then you will need to rule out PCOD and take first progesterone only pill for 5 days to get bleeding. Then you can start the pills. Since a confirmed diagnosis and treatment cannot be given on net please discuss these...


Deprovera,does it cause weight gain?

A: does depoprovera cause weight gain? Hello keyco knows, I will advise you based on personal experience. I was on Depo Provera for other medical reasons other than birth control for 3 years. In the last 6 months, I gained 60 pounds. (That''s no exaggeration!) Doctors could not figure out why I was gaining the weight and yet doing everything properly (exercise, diet, etc.) until we pinpointed it to be the Depo shot. Not every woman does experience this very unwanted side effect but many do. So I would definitely answer your question with a yes as to whether or not it does (or could) cause weight gain. Some other possible side effects listed are: More than 5% on Depo reported: Menstrual irregularities (bleeding or amenorrhea, or both) Abdominal pain or discomfort...


What causes ovulation to fail after HCG trigger?

A: Hello Ella, You don"t mention if your doctor actually checked to see if you had follicles that were ready to ovulate.  Usually, I start vaginal ultrasounds on cycle day # 10 and do them as often as needed until the dominant follicle(s) are the appropriate size to ovulate (18-24 mms).  At that point the HCG is given.  If it is given on a calendar method (without monitoring), it is basically a shot in the dark.  It is not known if there are even follicles ready to ovulate.  If there are no follicles prepared to ovulate, then ovulation won"t occur.  If there are follicles ready to ovulate, then ovulation should occur as long as the HCG is of good quality. To not do so has never been seen in the past....

Is anorexia is defined as having lost a certain percentage of one's normal body weight?

A: anorexia is a disease with many simptoms: 1. the severely distorted thinking that makes you believe you are overweight when you actually are not. this thought pattern is addictive and self destructive - it causes disconnection from reality, loss of control, low self esteem, anxiety 2. the starvation you impose upon your body to lose this "supposed" weight - it causes severe physical and psychological abuse to your body and makes your body very sick 3. eventual weight loss which further tortures your body and makes you sicker i think the only way to treat this disease is to see a psychologist or psychiatrist. because your ''thinking'' is so distorted, you don''t see the reality of...
