- amenorrhea question, any advice?
- Q: So, I'm only 16 and I hadn't gotten my period in 4 months. I'm a virgin, so I knew it wasn't pregnancy. I called my doctor and he set up an appointment for next Monday.I have good body fat levels, I exercise and eat healthy most of the time, and I don't overdo my exercise and I don't skip meals, just thought I'd get that out in the open.I think it may be primary amenhorrea and it's being caused by stress, but I'm unsure. I'm just waiting until my doctor tells me what's going on.I researched and to my surprise, there isn't anything about what can happen. I heard it can cause infertility, which really scared me. I want kids of my own when I grow up.So, if anyone out there has it can you tell me what may happen? I think I caught it relatively early so if we get to the root of the problem, will that solve it? And is there any advice you could give me?I'm trying to remain calm, but I'm really scared and my doctor isn't telling me much.Thank you!
- A: If you keep searching the web, you'll probably be able to diagnose yourself with uterine cancer. I can't tell you how many nights I've gone to beg convinced that I have throat cancer or ass cancer (don't ask). If you're not feeling poorly otherwise, why not just wait until Monday and ask the physician? He's right not to go through a bunch of scary possibilities before an exam.
- Could a person have head trauma and don't know it?
- Q: I was abused as a child, and recently I was diagnosed with primary amenorrhea. The doctors are trying to find out why I have this condition, and so I brought up my history of child abuse. I researched that child abuse can cause primary amenorrhea due to emotional and physical stress that child abuse victims go through. I was hit many times repeatedly with a baseball bat as a child and was never taken to the emergency room and doctor to get evaluated. I'm 23 years old now. Is it possible that I have been walking around all this time with head trauma? What are the signs of head trauma? How can the doctor's tell if I have had trauma and have had it since I was a child? Is there a way to fix head trauma?BEFORE YOU ANSWER: THIS IS A SERIOUS QUESTION! SO SERIOUS ANSWERS ONLY! THANK YOU!
- A: yes many people have had brain injuries and didnt know it. You can have a MRI or CAT scan that will show old damage depending on the location it will affect different people in different ways. Things you can look up are: traumatic brain injury and delayed concussion syndrome.the only treatment I know of for TBI is hyperbaric oxygen therapy its expensive and not often covered by insurance but it will for some. A good legitimate doctor is Dr Paul Harch of New Orleans he has done much research, written several medical papers as well as written a book on it and pretty much pioneered treatment with HBOT he has a great website with tons of info as well as some videos on Youtube you might be interested in. You can also contact his office for proffesionals in your local areaIt sounds like you have had a heck of a time. I hope you find the answers your looking for!
- I Haven't Had My Period For 5 Months!?!?!!?
- Q: I had my first period EVER last early december and the the next month it was a lil late and a lot lot lot less heavy and since then I haven't had my period. My mom kind of wants me to see a gynecologist, but since track started right after I got my period, I feel like that's why. But track ended a month ago and I haven't run since.....I was researching this and its called secondary amenorrhea and it can be caused by depression, exercise, stress, lack of sleep, etc. Last semester I cried soooo much and I also got about 5 or 6 hours of sleep or less every night and had my first AP exam of my lifee. Sooooo it seems like i have all of the symptoms of amenorrhea and I know what's causing it, soo is it bad to not have your period? I mean, I know I'm gonna care ten years down the road when I'm married and all, but for now, should I see a gynecologist? does it matter? My mom said that you need certain hormones from your period to strengthen your bones??? is that true?? helpp!! lol
- A: Your mom is partially right, your hormones do affect your bones in that they can affect your body's ability to absorb calcium. All women should take some kind of calcium supplementation, to help prevent osteoporosis. Talk to your doctor about that. :)However, having or not having your period won't affect it that much. A little, but not much. You are probably right in terms of why you haven't gotten your period.And honestly, the first two or three years of having your period, it will very likely be highly irregular anyways! Take care of yourself, eat healthy and eat enough (no dieting!), keep active, try to find things to do every day that you really enjoy, talk to people you trust when you aren't happy.. And you should be fine!If your mom really insists, it won't hurt for you to see a gynecologist. If for nothing else, go see one just to keep your mom from stressing you out? Then you can talk to the doctor about calcium, hormone balance, and what you can do to stay healthy. :) But I don't think you need to.
