Dr Owen :

Hello

Dr Owen :

This could be due to a few things

Dr Owen :

You could have a thyroid condition - and this should be checked with a TSH thyroid blood test - and if this is abnormal - usually medication such as Levothyroxine will help.

Dr Owen :

You might also have issues with possible anxiety or panic attacks - and that should be evaluated too - as this too can be treated.

Dr Owen :

In addition, I would get your blood pressure checked - blood pressure problems can cause irregular periods as well as your other symptoms.

Dr Owen :

And, then you should also get checked for ovarian cysts and/or PCOS - Polycystic ovarian syndrome - as this can be a possible cause of your problems too.

Dr Owen :

I hope this helps

Customer: If dont have period for the next few months should i be worried?
Dr Owen :

No you do not need to worry

Dr Owen :

Not having a period is okay

Customer: But wouldnt becoming pregnant be difficult withou one?
Dr Owen :

Yes and that is why you should get checked for what I described above

Customer: If everything that has been suggested is fine then what is the likely problem?
Dr Owen :

More than likely this is one of those things that I have suggested

Dr Owen :

so this is probably going to be PCOS, a thyroid condition, anxiety/ stress, blood pressure issues - it is not really going to be anything else.

Dr Owen :

I wish you well
