I've had my period every 13 days for the last 3 months and I'm worried that because I have had 4 cysts before or the endometriosis, could be the cause? If all this is happening does it mean I'm infertile?

I've had my period every 13 days for the last 3 months and I'm worried that because I have had 4 cysts before or the endometriosis, could be the cause? If all this is happening does it mean I'm infertile?

Further is needed: An average menstrual cycle is 28 but the normal accepted range is 21 to 35 days.

2cm simple cyst on Left ovary unchanged after 5 mos! Dr is not phased. I have VERY heavy periods w/clotting. Cyst related? Can it cause infertility?

2cm simple cyst on Left ovary unchanged after 5 mos! Dr is not phased. I have VERY heavy periods w/clotting. Cyst related? Can it cause infertility?

Hmm: 2cm simple cysts are usually benign/functional and should not be associated with your flow, nor cause infertility. Would be more concerning for twisting of the ovary if it were >4-5cm.
The only thing that might bring together ovarian cyst, heavy menses, and infertility might be endometriosis but they are usually not simple cysts per se. ...Read more

Could a tight/closed cervix cause extremely painful periods and infertility? Would my dr notice this on examinging me? Concerned he missed something

It could: Technically its called a "stenotic cervical os". It can cause painful periods. It could possibly, but not usually, cause infertility.

Can a miscarriage cause missed periods, high TSH levels & infertility. Diagnosed hypo 6m afte mc. Only had 6 periods since 07/12 mc 6.18.12.

Depends: A miscarriage can at time delay ovulation and cause the subsequent cycle to become irregular but it should not cause the periods to become irregular nor it has any affect on rising of the tsh.

Hypothyroidism however if not treated can cause irregular periods, miscarriage and infertility. ...Read more
