Patient Comments: Amenorrhea - Experience

Please describe your experience with amenorrhea.

Comment from: DameJay0216, 25-34 Female (Patient) Published: February 17

I'm 27 and went through some major changes in my life in the past year. Struggling through the difficulties in my life I developed an eating disorder. My BMI dropped to 21 and then I started binging. Since the past three months I have gotten my eating habits somewhat better but I'm still afraid of gaining. I usually do not eat more than 1200 calories and overeating to me is 2000. I have missed three periods and taken three pregnancy tests, all of which were negative. I experience constant cramps, major mood swings, and appetite fluctuations.

I'm a pharmacist always under stress because I work 2 jobs. I took levonorgesterel tablets (Postinor 2) twice in 2 weeks and then I didn't see my period for a month. I started having discharges off white in color and with an odor so I took fluconazole 150mg and secnidazole 2g because infection could also be a cause of amenorrhea. I've done pregnancy tests twice using urine and a pregnancy strip and it says negative.

AI am about 26 years old. I was born after eight and half months. My finger nails were not fully formed. My vagina or uterus was partly out. My nails were fully grown after about three weeks and my uterus receded about the same time. I have never menstruated and my breasts are not quite large enough at 25. The hair on my head fell off about about 9 years ago and it is quite scanty now. I am the shortest in our family as even my juniors are taller than me. I am anemic.I am stressed to death with all these deficiencies.
