Dr Owen : Hello
Dr Owen : I do have a few questions
Dr Owen : What is your weight in Kilograms?
Dr Owen : What medications are you taking?
Dr Owen : Do you have anxiety, depression or sstress>
Dr Owen : Do you have a thyroid condition?
Dr Owen : Thank you
JACUSTOMER-ncn376gd- : I'm 16 stone and 5'10 in height I don't think I'm stressed I'm not a big girl
JACUSTOMER-ncn376gd- : Not sure if I have thyroid condition either
Dr Owen : Okay
Dr Owen : Well at your age you should be able to get pregnant - but there are two things that could be causing you not to have a period.
Dr Owen : 1. Your thyroid - you might have hypothyroid - low thyroid - so I would get a TSH thyroid blood test to check this
Dr Owen : 2. You might have PCOS - polycystic ovarian syndrome - and this should be check this way
Dr Owen : So to check PCOS - you need an ultrasound to check your ovaries, also blood tests such as testosterone, DHEA-S, Estradiol and Insulin.
Dr Owen : 3. In addition I would check the function of your ovaries - this can be done with a Test called FSH - follicle stimulating hormone
Dr Owen : More than likely it is one of these problems that should be able to be treated.
Dr Owen : I hope this helps
