Doctor insights on:
Acne And Irregular Periods
Still possible: Irregular periods are caused when your body's signals for ovulation and menstruation get confused by hormonal imbalances that can be related to your thyroid (TSH), pituitary (LH/FSH/prolactin), ovaries (estrogen/progesterone). Many external factors can affect the hormones: malnutrition, stress, obesity, for example. Diet and exercise can get ovulation back on track. See a GYN though. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hyperhidrosis, irregular cycles, poor healing wounds, stretch marks since childhood now faded, irreg cycles, cystic acne, hirsutism, is it cushings?
May be endocrine: Your symptoms are certainly suggestive of a possible endocrine diagnosis even if not cushings. Polycystic ovary syndrome, pcos, could also cause those symptoms. Start with your primary who may be comfortable doing all the evaluation and treatment for pcos and may send you for consult if labs are more suggestive of cushings. ...Read more

Does provera (medroxyprogesterone) oral work for teenage girls that have pcos and have irregular periods?
Depends: Depends on what you are trying to treat. Provera (medroxyprogesterone) will regulate menses but will not have an effect on excessive hair growth or acne. Most women who are not trying to get pregnant will be treated with oral contraceptive pills as it treats more of the pcos symptoms then Provera (medroxyprogesterone) alone. I would recommend seeing a reproductive endocrinologist to go over all the possible treatment options. ...Read more

I have endometriosis and adenomyosis. Periods are irregular. Is withdrawal bleeding good for my body?
In some circumstance: Not sure exactly what you mean by "withdrawal bleeding". If you mean that having a menstrual flow by withdrawing the hormones Progesterone and estrogen - yes that is the normal menstrual cycle. A woman with endometriosis however in order to decrease her pain can stay on continuous hormones and thereby not have a withdrawal bleeding and thus avoid the cyclical pain. ...Read more
PCOS since puberty. Im slim but by time i get more acnes, hair loss, longer absent periods (8 months atm). How to regulate my cycles without OCPs?
Increased Androgens: Slim women with PCOS have ovaries that make more androgens (male type hormones) and ovulate less than other women. In my practice, if a salivary hormone test shows low Progesterone, that can be given to block some of the androgens along with an herbal fenugreek, but every patient is unique. So see a GYN who offers an alternative approach to PCOS management if you want to avoid BC pills. ...Read more
On mirena (levonorgestrel) for 8 months still having cramps w light irregular periods & period migraines is this normal? Started mirena (levonorgestrel) for period control. Thank you
Probably: By 6 months, ~95% of Mirena (levonorgestrel) users have decrease in duration and/or amount of menstrual blood flow; many stop getting their period. However, some women have irregular periods with cramps like you. Menstrual migraines likely related to estrogen decline with period, not mirena (levonorgestrel). Try ibuprofen/naproxen with periods. Dr may try estrogen with periods. If sxs worsen, see your dr to make sure iud in place. ...Read more
