I'm seeing an ob/gyn tomorrow and will ask about this but I was wondering if y'all in the community have had a similar experience to mine.
I went to my doctor a while back for mid-cycle spotting. Hormones came back as high prolactin (103) and elevated testosterone. Hemhorragic ovarian cyst, a small fibroid, and a small polyp. I've never had so many things at once (I'm 33).
Over the last month my mid-cycle spotting didn't stop. Light brown to light red, sometimes a little "chunky." Like my uterine lining was slowly shedding. Then I got my period on time yesterday and it's heavy. Thumb sized clots, heavier than normal for me.
So much is up in the air now while I'm awaiting an MRI to see if a pituitary tumor is the cause of the prolactin issue, though I have no symptoms of such a high level. Meanwhile, my menstrual cycle is wacky.
Anyone have a similar experience? Advice for to be a good advocate for myself? I actually feel fine, other than the anxiety all of this is causing me.
