In brief: GH deficiency

It depends on the cause of the GH deficiency.
Some people have isolated GH deficiency and the other pituitary hormones are unaffected. But if there is an underlying pituitary disorder, there could be other deficiencies. Your menstrual periods would be a sensitive sign, since LH/FSH are often affected after GH. See your Endocrinologist for an evaluation.
