Flucuating hormones. Irregular periods + acne at 42! joints crack esp hips. Severe hip pain, linked to hormones? Treatment?

Flucuating hormones.  Irregular periods + acne at 42!  joints crack esp hips.  Severe hip pain, linked to hormones? Treatment?

See your doctor: It may be best to first start with your pcp, and discuss the concerns you have. So that you have a starting point. Then s/he can also do a hormone panel assessment to see how you're doing to ck your Progesterone and estrogen levels. The severe hip pain needs to be assessed further too. So that may be related, in that hormones have a protective effect on bone, heart, and brain. But it may also be that it is completely separate, and unrelated to your hormones. So this is why you need to speak to your doctor. ...Read more

It would be a good idea to be seen and look into what is causing such irregular periods ( thyroid disease, adrenal disease, PCOS, pituitary tumor, medications, stress, exercise, etc.) best wishes. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I spotted for 1 day I have irregular periods my husband was home a month ago could i be pregnant?

Hard to tell...: A doctor can check to look for a medical issue, if a woman has mild menstrual-related symptoms. Many women have some variation of mucus discharge, of their periods, or a missed period on occasion (due to changes in hormones). A pregnancy test can be done the week after a missed period, or 3 weeks after sex, if worried about pregnancy. If symptoms are persistent, an ob-gyn exam may be a good idea. ...Read more

6 positive tests, irregular periods, no sac seen :( please help! I have irregular periods so im not sure when my last period was. I recently took 4 home tests & 2 at the hospital all were positive. But i began bleeding shortly after. I went to the hospita

I : I am so sorry you are going through this. Based on the information in your post, it sounds like you are going through or completed a miscarriage. You will need to follow up with your doctor for a repeat blood level to make sure the level is down to zero, which will confirm complete miscarriage. If not, you may need a D&C (procedure to clean out the uterus). Take good care. ...Read more
