Prolonged period, sore nipples, mood swings, exhaustion, hot and cold flashes. What is wrong?

I am 26 years old and in very good health. Last month my period lasted two weeks. I started to have soreness in my nipples about a week ago. I am very moody and exhausted lately. I am now about a week late for my period. I had heat flashes and cold flashes all night last night. I don't believe I am pregnant because my husband had a vasectomy many years ago. I took a test to make sure and it showed negative. What in the world could be wrong with me?

You seems to have estrogen deficiency which causes all the symptoms that you are describing. Estrogen deficiency causes heat flashes, atrophy of vagina that casues severe pain during intercourse, you also might get cracked nipples and mood swings. The treatment is to start regular estrogen and progesterone supplements. This will definitely do wonders for you. Consult a gynecologist before taking any medication.
