I was 12 (the normal age) when I first started getting a cycle which was fairly normal and regular but as the years went on it got a little more irregular, I was tested for hypothyroidism and that came back clear. I am now almost 22 and a year ago my cycle had been on the same norm for the past 3 years but it changed drastically with in the last year. I went from having a cycle every 2-3 months to having only 2 in the last year. My lmp was mid January 2013 which only lasted 4 days and was pretty light and my lmp before that was end of August 2012 and was normal flow and roughly 5 days. If anyone could give me some advise on what I should do or voice any concerns I would really appreciate it. Also, I think it may be a possibility that it could be PCOS... If anyone knows how much testing for that roughly costs please let me know seeing as I currently don't have medical insurance.View Thread
Yes I am a little overweight but not really by much. I do get a couple of chin hairs and I (hate to admit this) do get a small 'happy trail' on my stomach that I have to shave all the time seeing as all my hair seems to grow like a weed. Also when in the shower I get a lot of hair that falls out from my head but I have thick hair so it never really has made a difference. I'm looking into a couple offices around my area to see if they're a high cost for the testing. I think if I do have it then they'll just have me go on BC. Best of luck trying to conceive!!View Thread
