Re: Hormonal imbalance

Non of the hormone tests are particularly good at assessing this as they fluctuate. It would be reasonable to check your FSH if you are concerned you may be menopausal

Re: Managing adenomyosis

The Mirena IUD is the preferred choice but you could consider taking the combined pill continuously for 3 months thereby trying to avoid the fluctuations in your hormone levels. Another option is to use a gnRH analogue for 3-6 months which temporarily stops your hormones working and you can use add ...

Re: No periods

Even though your body weight has normalised if you have had no periods for 9 months with no other reason I would presume that you are perimenopausal.

Re: spotting

Hi no I don’t think you are too old to have a baby keep trying but it may take longer as your body has fewer eggs and the body is less good at selecting the good ones so it may take longer. General health is important including your weight. If you have been trying longer than 6 months then it may be...

Re: Prolapse

Hi there it may be that you have a prolapse. This could be the front wall or the back wall of the vagina or possibly the top ( vault). It would be worth seeing a specialist in women’s health physiotherapist initially to check you are doing your pelvic floor exercises properly whilst you are waiting ...
