Customer Question

Good day I was curious to see if I could get some help as I havent had a period since February and my regular GP won't assist until August. I am looking to get pregnant
JA: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?
Customer: My periods used to be regular but haven't had one since February. I'm not in pain
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: I had surgery for a chronic degenerative condition that affected my nutrition in April. I've had the condition for years but was only diagnosed in January. Prior to this I havent not had my period for such a long time

I think you need to have some blood and hormone tests initially plus a scan to see what is the issue

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
Should I arrange that with my GP or should I see a gynaecologist?
Expert:  Zee J replied 18 days ago.

Blood and Hormone tests required:

  1. Full blood count
  2. Liver function tests
  3. Kidney function tests
  4. Thyroid function tests
  5. ESR & CRP
  6. FSH & LH
  7. Estradiol
  8. Prolactin
  9. Testosterone levels 9AM fasting

Expert:  Zee J replied 18 days ago.

Yes you can do these tests with your doctor/GP
