Dear ma'm, hi! when you say thyroxine normal, it means T4 normal. but i would like to know your TSH, LH, FSH, and Estradiol values as well. you are 34 yrs, and have 9 years old daughter. if i am correct you had your daughter when you were 25. and probably since then you have amenorrhea. probably you have pituitary dysfunctioning. Regards!
