0.2 progesterone level, is this normal?
I normally don't share my health stories out of fear there is something wrong with me although my husband who now wants to have children believes its my off balance body that is preventing this from happening.
Since I started my menstrual cycle when I was twelve all the way up to my present age, I have suffered from irregular periods. At first it was more like long drawn out periods that never seemed to end. I would bleed for two sometimes three months and then I wouldn't bleed for months.
Off and on I would bleed for months and then not for months and this continues. Finally about five years ago I meet my husband and we marry three years later. The entire time my husband has been telling me to seek a doctor regarding my irregular periods but I assume I am perfectly fine. I reassure him my only issue is that I eat irregularly and smoke which I explain is most likely my main cause for my issues.
Recently I have been bleeding since June and the sad part about my situation is I completely am used to bleeding regularly that I didn't even notice. Finally my husband comments about not being able to try for children as I have been bleeding for months.
This is where I realize I have been bleeding since june and currently am still bleeing. After talking with some family later I discover I have two cousins that have recenlty been diagnoised with PCOS. I make an appointment where they actually do a cervix examine and draw 6 vials of blood. They also schedule me for an ultrasound.
At the ultrasound the next day they tell me I have a cyst that is the size of a walnut if not smaller not on or in my ovary just by my ovary. I ask her if this is why I am having my bleeding issues and she tells me maybe, she doesn't know.
Three days later, they call me although I am unable to answer and this is when they tell me they would like to do a BX of my uterus lining as it seemed thicker than normal. I call back to make the appointment and also to find out about my lab results but they are unable to tell me anything of use.
Today I get a copy of my labs and everything seems normal although I have no idea what any of it means. It claims my DHEA levels are 235.4 and my progesterone levels are 0.2. I have tried to contact the DR. regarding my labs by no one seems to have the time.
Is any of this normal? Does anyone know what any of this means?
