+opk 11 days ago; postpartum 7mths, still in amenorrhea, no longer breastfeeding. Is it a false +ve?
Probably not false +: Most ovulation prediction kits (opk's) fairly accurately detect leutinizing hormone (lh) surges, which occur just before ovulation. While it is possible to have a positive opk from an LH surge and then not ovulate, it's more likely that the detected LH surge was followed by real ovulation. The first day of the menstrual period should be 14-16 days after a positive opk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If only PCOS symptoms are a little excess hair, secondary amenorrhea, and elevated liver functions, can diagnosis still be PCOS?
PCOS: Most experts (not all) agree that pcos is diagnosed based on 1) irregular/skipped periods, 2) ultrasound appearance, 3) elevated blood androgen levels.

Took Provera (medroxyprogesterone) pill because of amenorrhea after stopping birth control. I took Provera (medroxyprogesterone) for 10 days. It's been 2 weeks and no period still? Why?
Estrogen: Hi. When you do a Provera (medroxyprogesterone) withdrawal challenge and don't have a period, it says your endometrium is not getting estrogen stimulation. It may take some time for the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis to resume normal cycling after discontinuing BCPs. Be patient and give it some time. If still no period, talk with your gyn. Good luck! ...Read more

Many relate to a deficiency in those hormones from the pituitary gland which stimulate the ovaries (gonadotropins) or an excess of another pituitary hormone, prolactin.

See a GYN for tests: If your brain isn't signalling for an egg release from your ovary, you won't have a signal for your periods either; that's usually the cause of amenorrhea. Often it's a hormonal imbalance--Thyroid, Prolactin, LH, FSH, Hcg should be checked. Your doctor can also induce a period as well w/ OCPs.
