Hormone imbalance

I'm 23 now, but have always had irregular periods. had hormone tests recently and was told i had an imbalance of a hormone which starts with P(can't remember).and i had to take a drug to help regulate my period over a 3month period...it worked until i started taking *Postinor-2 (a little too often i think).Took this pill 1st week in sept, had my period a week later, and then the week after dt again..haven;t had my period since then(not had sex either)..but ive been having this egg white-like discharge every few weeks, with wht looks like dried blood in it. Generally sleepin alot more in the last few months and prone to mood swings.Wht is wrong with me?

and the docs thought this was better that what you had before i would go back to them explain what is happening now ask them to check your hormones againto see what is happening is the hormone you are talking about prolactin i know it is associated with breast feeding but when i was a teenager i had a prolactin inbalance it can make your periods irregular but did not do that to me now i breast feed to children and prolactin is normal just a mad thought

So it was probably a progesterone imbalance since it started with a "p". As for your cycles getting irregular again, I think it definitely can have something to do with Postinor-2. They could change your hormones temporarily and thereby change your cycles. The eggwhite discharge usually indicates that estrogen is high, like when you're about to ovulate, and the spotting could be because of Postinor-2. But I'm not a doctor :-) so if you continue having problems with your cycles, I would set up another appointment with your obgyn. Take care!

...oh yeah, I guess it could be prolactin too. I must have posted at the same time as neacys, so I didn't see her post until after :-)
