Patient: I have missed my last 3 periods but taken 2 home pregnancy tests (1 after my first missed period, 2nd after my last) but both negative. My stomach feels and appears swollen. I had leep treatment done on my cervix over a year ago along with a cervical biopsy. Could this be the cause of my missed period.
Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern.Leep procedure or cervical biosy done before one year back may not be responsible for recent menstrual irregularity.Irregularities in menstrual cycles can occur due to many causes like lifestyle modifications, polycystic ovary disease etc leading to gonadal hormonal imbalance, thyroid hormonal imbalance, prolactin level changes etc.As you are having amenorrhea since three months, better to get evaluated.So, please do consult your doctor, get examined and go for investigations like ultrasound, gonadal hormonal profile, thyroid hormonal profile, prolactin levels, hemoglobin and blood sugar levels estimation etc.With this workup the possible cause of your problem can be identified and treated.Take care.
