    Good evening, Before I advise you on what to do, I will like to know more about your menstrual cycle; - what do you do for a living? - is this the first time you will experience such? -how old were you when you first saw your menses as a lady? - are you using any contraceptive or have you used any in the past? - I'm sure you have tried some things when your period ceased for almost a year now, what have you done about it? I will await your answers.

    Okay. Based on your response, I will like to ask further questions: Nature of your work? Are you married? Have you been pregnant before or had an abortion? Do you notice any sign of ovulation in your cycle e.g breast tenderness, lower abdominal pain? Do you have any vaginal discharge? If yes, tell me about the quantity, colour, or odour. Is your breast discharging anything like milk? The questions are intended to get you clearer. I will await your response.

    With the discharge, its very likely you have a pelvic inflammatory disease and this can explain the reason why your menses has ceased. You need to do some tests first to be able to know the organism that is causing the infection. HVS m/c/s is one of the tests. The test will show the organism that is responsible and the most effective antibiotics to use. You can also do a pelvic scan to assess your uterus and other surrounding organs to be sure everything is in order. The result of the tests will be taken to a doctor who will examine you and give you the appropriate treatment. Hope it's clear?

    Costs of tests vary per region. I won't be able to predict or say much about the cost. I will advise you to approach a reputable medical laboratory in your area to make enquiries. Yes it is very true. She is trying to rule out hormonal problems as cause of your delayed menses by requesting for the level of your sex hormones. You can do it if you have the means, if not, do the ones I stated earlier first, get treated by a Doctor and see how it goes. I will always be here if you have other concerns. Take care
