    Hello madam...there are many possible causes OF this...pregnancy,hormonal imbalance,anorexia,excessive exercise,ashermans syndrome,ovarian causes...You will need to see your gynecologist who will run a few tests(hormone profile,scan) and then try to decide what is wrong.the first test he will ask for is a pregnancy test if you are sexually active.

    well pt is negative, no infection either. if it's menopause, is there any symptoms to watch for?
    Dr. Adedayo A answered:

    it could also be PCOS. It could be the beginnings of premature menopause (due to premature ovarian failure) as you have also rightly pointed out..menopause can come with mood swings,sudden hot flushes which can make you uncomfortable, dry vaginas, body pain, insomnia, poor concentration etc...The lack of hormones cause this due to the ovaries not producing them anymore and some patients can benefit from hormone replacement under the care of a gynaecologist.

    how safe is hormone replacement and of what health benefits? what health hindrance is premature menopause is? At what age is menopause not premature?

    premature menopause occurs at the age of 40 and below. The health hindrance is infertility but if you have had all your kids , then good.early menoapuse is also associated with osteoporosis, coronary artery disease, anxiety and depression....hormone replacement has its risks and that's include blood clots in legs and lungs, heart disease, Stroke and breastfeeding cancer.a gynaecologist can decide with you if we are truly talking about this condition here

    Hi...is this in one or both eyes.this may be arcus senilis usually in older people as a result of high cholesterol...that's one cause I can think off .blood cholesterol levels should be checked and if high should be treated. a visual inspection by your doctor would also be of benefit
