Doctor I’m bleeding!

1) BCP’s 2) Progesterone in high doses 3) Mirena 4) IUD 5) Tranexamic acid (Lysteda) 6) Uterine (endometrial) ablation
Question: Amenorrhea vs. Anovulation
Your 21 year old daughter, a track star, has had no period for 2 years. No symptoms, hot flashes or night sweats or hormonal complaints. Recent OB-GYN tested DEXA and found T-score of -2.4. PMD gave her BCP’s to protect her bones. She doesn’t wish to take and refuses BCP’s. How would you treat your daughter? If it was you, how would you treat yourself?
Question: An 80 year old female presents with history of vaginal bleed and endometrial proliferation. The endometrial stripe measures 0.9 cm: biopsy is negative.
