My sister has AS like my Mum and myself and she has also had NO periods for over a year. She has had it investigated and been on treatments that should have restarted her periods but with no success. The docs have said she produces no oestrogen and can find no medical reason for this and she is still unable to conceive. This all started before she was diagnosed with AS (which happened very recently) her physiotherapist has said that he thinks the AS is responsible for her lack of periods and says that it is all linked. I have never heard this before and would like to know if any of you have heard of this or have had similar experiences. I can't think of any explanation as to how it could be linked but as we all know, AS is a funny old thing.
Any comments gratefully received, i really want to try and find out all i can so i can help her.
