To wonder what to do next?

I'm mostly posting here for traffic, but also wasn't sure whether I should put it in the infertility or conception sections because it isn't really either of those things.

Basically, I've been to the doctors about my irregular periods. I've always had regular periods, at irregular intervals until about 18 months ago when they started to become much less frequent, sometimes as much as 4 months apart.
I had blood taken last week and have just had the results back - everything is normal.
I'm not sure what to do now. I'm not looking to conceive at the moment but when I do, I'm worried that I'm going to suffer from 'unexplained infertility'.
Of course I don't want anything to be wrong with me, but at least if something had come up in the blood results then perhaps it could be treated/dealt with.

Has anyone else experienced anything similar?

Have a look at Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome - as far as I'm aware nothing has ever shown up in my blood tests. I started my periods at 16'and had regular periods every 4 months so basically 3 a year until I was trying for a baby - was discovered I had PCOS and an under active thyroid. Don't despair I have been lucky and gone on to have 2 DD

What tests did they do? Do you know if they tested your thyroid?

Had you been on any kind of hormonal birth control prior to your periods becoming irregular? That can mask hormonal issues. Do you have any PCOS symptoms such as difficulty losing weight or excess hair growth?

They tested for thyroid, various hormones, iron. There was at least 8 things they tested for on specimen bag.
I think the hormone ones ruled out PCOS. That's what I thought it might be actually, but apparently not?

I have never been on any kind of birth control. I do have excess hair but I've always been that way.

One symptom I've been having that I thought might be linked to thyroid is that I get hot very easily. I feel hot almost all the time. I honestly can't remember the last time I felt cold.
