Women's Health- Period
I am almost 18yrs. old and have inconsistant periods since my freshman year when I started. Some months it will just be spotting, but then it will go away for two or even three months before it returns at all. I have had EXTREMELY heavy flow lately. I tried using both a tampon and a pad, but it still didn't work. It is really heavy and there is also really dark blood clotting. I am so confused and always have been. I am not sexually active. When I am not on my period I have clear substance coming out of me still... not a clue what is giong on. I used to bevery active, but due to a concussion I cannot workout. I am on Citalopram for Depression. A lot is going on and I need help!!! Could it be genetic? Any thoughts or ideas? Thank you for you time!!!! I greatly Appreciate it!!

Hello,
Irregular period are often caused by thyroid causes. It could be hypothyroidism, post pill amennorhea , polycystic ovarian syndrome or less frequently a pituitary tumor causing high prolactin levels or a hypothalamic disease. Diagnostic tests for PCOS are 2 hr GTT,serum androgen and testosterone levels,LH-FSH ratio,prolactin levels,TSH levels,17-hydroxyprogesterone levels  and 3D ultrasound done.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
