Hello all first let me say I was diagnosed with Lupus (SLE) in '95 after suffering a bout of double pneumonia. I have been having some of what I believe is hormonal problems but not sure. I have had my period like clockwork since getting it when I was 12. Over the past two months my period has been really funny. I had a longer than usual period in Sept. I usually go for 3 days and this time it was almost 7 days. October came and I was a week late and when it came it was for one full day and very light. Btw, I took two pregnancy test when i was late in October (negative). So I am now a couple days late in November and I just dont know what to think. I am on social security for having lupus but have no insurance and no money to pay for a visit.
Let me back up, I just had a baby 17 mos ago and since then Ive had profuse night sweats and hot flashes like crazy so I went to my doctor (had ins at that time) and they gave me complete blood testing and the test came out good and even my levels for lupus were good as well. I had been meaning to go to the GYN but then lost my ins...my questions is is anyone else experiening this Could it be that im going into pre menopause?Or could it be something from the lupus that causes this?
Im 34 Btw....please help
