Question: My last period was in the middle of September 2012 and nothing after that. My lower abdomen seems swollen and hard, when i touch it. I have had a few (3-4) dizzy spells from September up to now. I have taken two pregnancy tests and they have both been negative. However for the last week my breasts have been tender to the touch, I have no spotting but due get a slight pain to sharp pain when my bladder is full or i bend over, i.e. to touch my ankles. I don't know what's wrong. Also my period has never been regular. But this is the longest it has been for me to miss my period.

Hello,
If the pregnancy test is negative then that can safely be ruled out. That leaves hormonal and pathological causes for the amenorrhea.You need to get some blood tests done for hormone profile.LH,FSH,PROLACTIN,TSH,DHEAS AND TESTASTERONE.
Along with the blood tests and ultrasound is necessary.Hypothyroidism and PCOS (polycystic ovaries) need to be rule out. First and foremost a pelvic examination is in order.Since your periods have in irregular in the past,chances of hormonal imbalance is there.If such is the case,you may need medication to regularise your periods.

I'm a 47-year old female, 5'6, 200 lbs (way over weight, I know!), type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, hypothyroidism, tachycardia, fibromyalgia, neuropathy, and hiatel hernia. Endoscopy and colonoscopy in 2008, normal other than hiatel hernia. Told to repeat in 10-years. As far back as I can remember, I have never had regular B/Ms. For the past month, I have been in severe pain in the URQ region. I have had x-rays, US, Hida-Scan, and CT. Dx, is constipation in right colon (area of pain). This past weekend, my dr put me on a liquid diet and typical colon cleanse for f/u x-ray. I am still having serve pain and have not had a B/M in 5 days. Dr said to take Dulcolax every other day until I have B/M every day and to take Miralax every day. F/u in 2 week, said may have to repeat colonoscopy if pain is still there. Does it sound like my doctor is doing everything necessary to determine source of pain? I am miserable! Please help!
