Never had periods even on birth control pills. Cause?

Resolved Question:

I'm 19 years old and have never had a period. My obgyn even put me on two types of birth control and medicine that I had to take for 10 days to get a period, and it still never worked. After I went back to her, she was of no further help. But I am concerned that my lack of period means that I don't have any eggs or in some way will prevent me from getting pregnant when the time comes. I don't have health insurance anymore or I would go see a new doctor.

Thanks for posting your query at DoctorSpring.com
You need to have a complete evaluation regarding your lack of periods.
It is called primary amenorrhoea.
Have you NEVER had a period ?
I mean, not even spotting ever ?
You need the following steps of evaluation -
1. Please consult a gynecologist.
2. Get an internal evaluation to see if the passage is normal - the internal organs are fine.
3. Get a pelvic ultrasound scan .
4. Get karyotyping ( genetic analysis done )
5. Hormonal levels - FSH, LH, TSH, Prolactin.
Then please upload these reports and send them across to me.
Without these investigations, it is impossible to tell you why you are not menstruating .
THere are a number of conditions causing primary amenorrhoea - absence of a vagina, partial absence of a vagina. stenosis ( narrowing ) of one, a septum in the vagina, problems in the uterus or cervix, hormonal deficiencies, genetic disorders etc.
All the best
Please feel free to discuss further.
