    Hello Patty3167

    You may be starting early menopause. There is a blood test that you can ask your run for you, to check your FSH levels (Follicle Stimulating Hormone). You didn't mention any tests that you had done,(except pregnancy tests) so I would also check your thyroid levels since your thyroid also controls your periods. I would also request a testosterone check and a transvaginal ultrasound of the ovaries to recheck that cyst. I am going by medical experiences that I have gone through myself over the years.When I was 30 yrs old, I had developed an ovarian tumor on my left ovary that was producing testosterone at very high levels. I would get my period every three months,developed facial hair,and sounded like a boy going through puberty! Maybe I am over reacting a bit and you could certainly begin with just the thyroid and FSH levels to see if that holds the answer to your late periods. I just figured that I would give you all the ideas that I had for you to use if need be. Good luck,I hope this info helps put an end to your mystery. I will be following your story, so if you have any questions for me, I will respond.
