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

With the past tubal ligation and now negative pregnancy tests, it seems certain that you are NOT pregnant.

What you are experiencing is a "non-ovulatory" cycle. This means that you probably did not ovulate last month. When this happens, you also don't get your typical cycle related symptoms. Also, patients will frequently report bloating and pelvic discomfort, likely related to their ovaries.

Here is what you can do:
1. Wait and expect that it will return within the month
2. Call your doctor for a prescription for Provera (a progesterone that can be used to induce a period)

If this does not work, then a visit to discuss reason why women start to cycle irregularly would be the right thing. Testing for things like thyroid disease would be appropriate if you reach this point.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have additional questions.

My mother is 89 and on hospice care for advanced A.D. she has developed, over past year, an indentation on the top of her skull running left to right about three inches back from the front of the scalp. She has several large nodules on her thyroid, but her endocrinologist declined to pursue with needle biopsy or surgery due to her age and advanced disease, A.D. what do you think could be the cause of the changes in the top of her skull, indentation. She also has had significant loss in brain mass in past 12 years per MRI studies ren years apart.

My psychiatrist added 25 mcg of liothyronine, I started taking it Thursday 3-19, to be increased to 50 mcg after one week to augment my depression that has been resistent to other antidepressants. I don t have enough energy to leave the sofa. I also have panic disorder. I have gained about 35 lbs. in about nine months. I m nervous after reading some of the reviews. Should I be. How long can I safely take this medication. Will my thyroid stop producing the harmone naturally if I stay on this medication? When I come off will my thyroid be normal? I have very high hopes that this will increase my metabolism and give me the energy I m lacking and aid in my depression. Thank you
