Hi--are you saying you had a pregnancy test? Have you also had a pelvic exam and a pelvic ultrasound?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I've had a pregnancy test I'm not pregnant and nothing showed on the ultrasound

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
OK Naseem. Has this ever happened before?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Yes but not for this length of time, it's not happened for more than a week before

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
Just one more question then--did your doctor have any comments about this?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No they don't know what it is

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
OK. This could be a sign of polycystic ovarian disorder, uterine fibroids, a low thyroid condition, or sometimes this is only stress related. I would check your estrogen, progesterone LH and FSH levels and run a thyroid function panel. I would also get a ct scan of the pelvis

Hi Naseem--instead of asking for a relist can you tell me what the problem was that you had with my answer? I'll be happy to supply any more information you'd need but you have to ask me rather than relisting
