Irregular periods, hair loss. Normal thyroid and hormone tests, ultrasounds. Any ideas?

I have very irregular periods (usually only 3 to 4 a year) and bad hair loss/thinning so I went to see my primary doctor. He tested my thyroid which came back normal. Then he tested hormones (not sure which ones?) and had a pelvic ultrasound done. All those tests came back normal. Obviously, something isn't right.. What could the problem be?

Thanks for the query.
Sometimes psychological factors also can affect the menstrual cycle and can lead to hair loss etc.
So you once verify whether you are worrying about anything, any change in diet or exercise leading to weight changes etc.
As you are not having any abnormality, by taking nutritious diet, sufficient rest, by doing exercises and by maintaining adequate weight to height your problem may solve.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
