Hello
This requires examination.
When was your last pelvic exam?
This can be from hormonal problems, thyroid, liver, kidney problems, fibroids of the uterous and other uterine problems.
This should prompt a visit to your ob/gyn doctor at this point.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

Hi

I am asking you because I assumed this is a hormonal problem .

i just wanted confirmation . to say I need to see a GP isn't an answer.

I would clearly like a refund ....£24 is not acceptable.

thanks

Darcy.

HI
I did not say to see a GP, but rather an OB specialist.
I also gave you a list of possibilities, which apparently did not come through??
Sex hormone imbalance
Thyroid disease
Liver disease or kidney disease.
Uterine problems, which requires exam, maybe ultrasound.
The other possibilities require lab testing.
Those are generally what might be going on.
I am not sure what else you are asking....we do not do labs, exam or diagnosis, but rather I have given you the correct differential.
We answer questions.
Did you have another specific question that has not been answered?
