    Default No AF- six months and counting.

    I've always had irregular/ painful cycles, not as painful after DS & DD, but still very irregular- currently six months and counting.

    Last time I approached my OB for help investigating/ conceiving, I was given provera & clomid and sent on my merry way. No U/S, no blood tests.

    I am lacking confidence to know what to say/ask to seek further information- pcos, endo, after my previous experience. I even went to a new GP, who when I mentioned I had PND after DS (premature) asked me why I wanted to have another. ?

    What questions/ tests should I be asking for?

    I totally understand where your at! My period has been exactly the same my whole life and each time I went to a doctor about it they would just throw a pregnancy test at me and send me on my way - and I knew that wasnt the case at the time- one of the times i was 14 and a virgin and had mum in the room with me! While i was off the doctor was telling me mum how i probably sneek out to the park and meet the boys there!

    When the time come my husband and I wanted to TTC i got a doctor who gave me a pregnancy test but also a heap of blood tests and ultra sounds to test for PCOS and Endo. All negative. Not 1 reason why I wasnt getting a period. She has now referred me to a gynocologist who im seeing today! I hope you have better luck next doctor you see.. maybe ask your friends if they have a reliable doctor you can try? March in there and tell them you want proper tests done. Good luck with it all ☺

    Only think i can think of is PCOS, i would go to the gp and get a referral to a gyno. Painful and irregular cycles can also indicate endometriosis. I have pain my cycles were normal and always spot on till i started the pill for two months to help with my endometriosis pain so now I just have to wait for my cycles to go back to normal.
