A visit to the Dr is in order and bloodwork should be performed as well. At a minimum- thyroid screening and screening for elevated prolactin level. Hormonal levels to include fsh, estradiol and testosterone. Other hormone levels that may be helpful are DHEAS and 17 hydroxyprogesterone. These help in terms of screening for early menopause, polycystic ovaries, and late onset adrenal hyperplasia
