Ok, so…I just Dr. Googled “no period after Provera” and came up with three words that I never ever want to see…ever…”Premature Ovarian Failure”.
I swore up and down that I would NOT Dr. Google things anymore, and UGH! I can’t stop myself.
I guess that not getting my period after 10 days of Provera means one of two things: really high FSH levels, which would indicate POF…or very low estrogen levels, which still isn’t great, but may be treatable with hormone replacement. I know that I have low estrogen…but I’m seriously freaked out here. I left a message for my doc about the whole “no period yet” thing, and he called me back immediately and said I should come in this week for more tests. (It’s never a great sign when your doc calls you back right away and tells you to come in immediately, which is why I went to Dr. Google after he called me.) Dr. Google also said that there could be a possible pituitary tumor, adrenal tumor, thyroid shit, or hyperprolactinemia which sounds really scary.
Before I went on BCP, my FSH levels on two separate tests were at 5 and 7 which is in the normal range. My estradiol was on the low end of “acceptable”…so wtf?
I’m so confused, and really frustrated with all of this shit. Are ovaries and hormones that operate even semi-normally that much to ask???
