Have not had a menstrual period, not pregnant. Get myself tested?

i Have not had a menstural peiod since December,I m 34 yrs old and I m not pregnant. I ve gained about 8 lbs in the last six months. I saw a doctor and he recommended i take Progesteron for 7 days to start bleeding . I know that will get me to mensturate but there must be an underlying problem, do you recommend any other testing? I believe I have PCOS is there a way to test for this or a cure

i also think that you are having PCOS. so, first it is to be cleared that whatever the underlying disease is, you must have to tke Progesterone to start menstruation. but after that it will be cleared that you have hormonal problem. then do an usg OF WHOLE ABDOMEN and if you have any pcos you will get to know that.
