Flaming June: Your symptoms are nonspecific to a particular condition. Start with the basics : sleep, nutrition and stress management. Hot flushes may result from hypoglycemia and low thyroid (hypothyroidism). Fatigue may be from both of these and poor sleeping (time and quality). See a caregiver who is willing to tackle the whole patient and not someone who will only test your hormones. Good luck! ...Read more

As: As doctors, anytime a fertile, sexually active woman has an abnormally light or missed period, the first thing we do is rule out pregnancy. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come. ...Read more

I'm a 24 year old woman. My prolactin is 48. I've been having hot flashes and headaches. My estrogen is low. Should I be worried?

It DOES need: Evaluation but I don't think you need to be super-worried. Hyperprolactinemia is somewhat common; it can affect the production of other reproductive hormones including estrogen and progesterone, also often impairing fertility. A common cause of elevated prolactin is a BENIGN tumor in the pituitary gland (in the brain). Often medication can treat this; occasionally surgery is needed. See your doc ...Read more
