hello
You are more likely to have secondary amenorrhea only if you:
Are obese
Exercise excessively and for long periods of time
Have less than 15% - 17% body fat
Have severe anxiety or emotional distress
Lose a lot of weight suddenly
other cause may be thyroid dysfunction
so go for thyroid profile done and blood test to check hormones level.
sticky white discharge indicate pelvic infection,cervical dysplasia or hpv
pap smear test will rule out exact cause.

hello
welcome to health care magic
Secondary amenorrhea occurs when a woman who has been having normal menstrual cycles stops getting her periods for 6 or more months.
Blood tests may be done to check hormone levels, including
Estradiol levels
Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH level)
Luteinizing hormone (LH level)
Prolactin level
Serum hormone levels such as testosterone levels
pap smear should also be done
*

Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH)

Hello, I am 25 years old and have recently discovered that I have Beta Thalassemia Minor. For the past year I find that I cannot sustain my erection during the length of the intercourse.

After I inject myself with a 1ml dose of testosterone in my right cheek (glut?) the whole muscle group it was given in gets very sore for at least two weeks. It does not ache, just very sore to the touch. This is my second time to do this and the results are the same. Is this normal? A problem? Did not happen while I was going in for the shots.
