Brief Answer:
Get her blood counts checked.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on healthcaremagic.

I have gone through your query and understand your concerns. But it is very difficult to comment without examining her clinically. I would insist you to get her blood counts checked. It would help in excluding a bacterial infection as a possible cause.

Hormone deprivation is another possibility to consider. If that is the case, hormone replacement therapy would provide relief. Her doctor could guide her about this.
