User Profile
i am trying to become pregnant for 2 years. The health department did a blood test last year for inferlility. But they said everything is fine.hormones, ovulation...

I dont really have my period anymore for about 7 months now. I still have it every 28-30 days but only for 2 days. Is it thru that i could have something serious? WHere could i go to get it checked out? I dont have any health insurance. what is a good health insurance that is also covering infertility?

Thank you for your question on

Your symptoms suggest that you have irregular periods, probably due to secondary amenorrhea. Polycystic ovarian syndrome needs to be ruled out which can account for amenorrhea, infertility and irregular periods. The best way is to consult a gynecologist for a thorough examination and required investigations like, hormonal assay, ultrasound examination of the abdomen with special attention to rule out cysts in ovaries. As your hormonal assay appears to be due to normal, your examination is incomplete without complete physical examination including ultrasound examination. So, please consult a gynecologist. Thank you.
