Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

Can you tell me any more about what they saw on the ultrasound? Was there any comment about the uterus or the uterine lining? Were any other measurements taken besides the ovarian cyst?

By the way, the scanned document DID work. Let me know and I will try to help you!

The only thing they mentioned was cyst. They did say no mass or anything was visible

Final question before I attempt an answer.

Are you saying that she has had only ONE period, or that she has a regular period with only ONE DAY of bleeding with each period?

In other words, does she have any regular bleeding at all?

Regular period with generally one day of bleeding.
Answered by Dr. Timothy Raichle 2 hours later
My impression from the information you have given is: 1-2 years of extremely light cycles, fatigue, vaginal dryness and labs that are overall normal but with borderline low estrogen levels.

She is a bit young to have a decrease in the function of her ovaries, but this is certainly possible. The ovaries produce estrogen which prepares a lining for pregnancy. When the ovaries start to "run out" of eggs, then the bleeding with the cycle becomes much lighter and the cycles often become more irregular. What is slightly unusual about her story is that she is REGULAR but LIGHTER with regard to her bleeding.

FHS is a good indicator of of "ovarian reserve". I would do the following:
1. Ask for a DAY#3 FSH and estradiol level
2. Consider a short course of regular birth control pills and see if the bleeding is more normal

This would be where I would start. Also, a consult with an REI specialist would be worth considering (Reproductive Endocrinologist).

I hope this helps!
