Missed or Irregular Menstrual Periods

Contact your doctor.

Missed or irregular menstrual periods and the presence of excess body or facial hair might be related to over production of testosterone. Women normally produce small amounts of testosterone and other "male hormones."

Missed or irregular periods with nipple discharge (called galactorrhea) sometimes indicate the presence of a small benign tumor in the pituitary gland.
