Is it normal, hmm...: "Normal" is a relative term. Apparently it's normal for YOU. I doubt a hormone imbalance, but there is only one way to know for sure, and that would be to get your hormone levels checked.That's not your decision; it's your doctor's based on your symptoms, your history, your physical examination, and possibly other tests.
