It's not unusual for me to go months *without* a period, but months with is a little scary). Internist put me on a week's worth of Provera, then sent me downstairs to consult with an ob/gyn, who wants to do an endometriosis (endometrium?) biopsy. (At this point it was almost 5pm and I hadn't eaten all day, so things were starting to get a little dizzying.)
Meanwhile, my thyroid ultrasound came back. I have a .6 cm nodule on the right lobe, and around a 1cm nodule on the left lobe. Don't know any more than that until the endo analyzes.
These are the tests she ordered. I'll get the results in a week. I didn't ask for any of them; apparently she either spoke with the other posters in this thread or is literally testing for *everything*!
