Question: Could you give me a list please of all the tests you would want me to do to figure out why I'm having a period every 2 weeks since the last month and a half?
I do have to mention that early November I used a progesterone cream for PMS symptoms, however only twice, for two consecutive days. Also noteworthy is the fact that many years ago (~14) I had to stop birth control pills after about a year of use (and experimenting with different brands) because I was starting to get periods every two weeks. I'm thinking and hoping that it's the cream that messed me up this time but still I'd like to make sure. I'm currently in a country where I go get blood tests first and then see a doctor with the result, but I'm not sure what blood tests to order. I am 36 years old, going to be 37 in April. I would basically like to make sure that all my hormones and fertility are still ok.
