We found out what’s wrong.

And it’s not anything I thought it was, or anything any of you thought. Not PCOS, not fibroids, not cancer, not pregnancy, not thyroid.

Here is what’s wrong with me:
1. My pituitary gland produces too much prolactin.
2. I also have too much of the other male hormone. (DHEA? Forgot the name already.)
3. My insulin resistance is borderline.
4. I need more Vitamin D.

Those last two aren’t what’s causing the double periods. But he told me about them, anyway, just so I’d know.

Besides that, I’m completely healthy. Even my cholestorol is good.

He gave me little tiny pills to slow down the prolactin. He said that’ll most likely bring the DHEA down, too. If not, though, they’ll give me something extra for that.

I am ovulating, after all. Twice a month, I guess.

No wonder I’m always tired and bitchy, then. But still. I’m glad we went through all the tests. Hopefully the tiny pills will work. I should find out in the next four weeks if they do.

In the meantime, I’m going to buy a sun lamp.
