No Period for Months - Not Pregnant

By July 16, 2003

Follow me on:

Women's Health Forums: I haven't had my period for months, I'm not pregnant. I do have hypothyroidism but my thyroid levels are well within normal range. My doctor wants to put me on the pill but I hate the side effects. I'm also suffering from vaginal dryness and low sex drive. I'm assuming these are related? Is there anything else that I can try or are there tests that they should be doing on me to see what the problem is? What do you think?

Well I don’t know what you should do but that is happening to me too and I am only 12 years old! I had been having my period for about a year when suddenly I stopped and I haven’t had it in 7 months!

I am 18 and recently come off the pill as it was awfull with my hormones and wasn’t making my periods any better.
I suffer with back pains, blood clots and stomach aches. As soon as i came of the pill i haven’t had a period or any of the signs (pains) to say i am going to have one. I have had pregnancy tests that have all come up negitive, i’m starting to worry that i have something wrong me. The doctors have put me under blood test but don’t seem to worried about it, i have the blood tests in 3 weeks. I feel the doctors think it’s just another person moaning about something insignificant but i have research that stoppages of the menestral cycle can lead to alot.
It might be worth seeing your doctor about a blood test to make sure you are in the clear for anything else it could be.
hope this helps
Good luck

I am 32 years old. My period was fine from age 12-18. At 18 I got pregnant. After I had my son at 19 it all went down hill from there. I had the Norplant put in when my son was 4 months old. I had the Norplant from Oct. 1993 until Jan. 1997, when I got married and my husband and I decided we wanted to have a baby. Well I had the Norplant removed and my period never returned. Eight long years of trying. I went on birth control pills to start my period then we tried fertility meds for 5 months. Still no luck then my period would stop again. I had all the test run…nothing. The only way I could have my period was to take birth control pills. BUT I wanted to get pregnant. No luck. So we gave up the idea. I got into this mode of “getting Healthy” So I joined the YMCA, stopped smoking after 15 years. Lots weight drinking water like crazy, taking vitamins. Went back on the pill for the three month supply I had left. When I was out of pills I just let it go and my periods kept coming. Three months on the pill + five months period with no pills. Then I got the flu really bad and no period! So I went to get any and every medicine I could find for the flu. And just to be on the safe side an pregnacy test. Didn’t want to regret taking something bad… you know?! So to me and my husbands surprise I was PREGNANT after 9 years. Ok fast foward… after I had my daughter and had my six week check up/what do you want for birth control. I choose the pill again. I took it for 5 months then read more on the pill and my husband and I decided that because it was an abortive method, that was not for us (I had NO idea all this time) So less than a year after I had a baby (my daughter will be one Sept. 1st.)I AGAIN have NO period!! Go figure?????!!!!!!

Hi there. I have never really had any trouble with my period. When I was 15 I went on the pill due to irregular periods (I was only ever late by a few days) and bad back pain and cramps. I also went on the pill because of bad acne. Well now I am 23 and married and my husband and I wanted to try for a baby. So I have been of the pill for the last 4 months and had normal periods during that time. This month I am almost 2 weeks late. You think I would be pregnant. NO!!! I’m not. I have taken 3 at home pregnancy tests and I have also gone to the doctor for a blood test. All came back negative. This is very frustrating. I dont know why I will not get my period and my husband and I really want a baby. My doctor said that being on the pill for so many years, it could take a couple months to get normal periods again. But that doesn’t make sense because for the last four months that I have been off the pill my periods have been fine. I dont know what to think or do.

(5) Darlene says:

well lemme tell you my story with all this, I was 15 when I stopped having my perios altogehter, soon I noticed that I gained alot of weight, but for me going to the doctor wasnt an option, I knew that there was no way to pay for it, seeing as if I mentioned to my mom that I wasnt having a period it would automatically be that I was fooling around, well I didn’t go until I turned 18. When I did they put me on birth controls and provera, since then I have been infertile, I dont know why but for some reason birth control pills seem to have this affect on alot of women, so just keep that in mind, but now I went to another doctor, found out there are TONS of other options that can help you out, I personally chose nuvaring, and this IS a birth control, at first I needed it to have a period, but since my husband got back from deployment we’re trying for a baby and I took it off, we haven’t got pregnant YET BUT guess what, now I have a period without ANY medications, I’m just suggesting you try nuvaring, it brought me my periods again, which is alot better than not having them at all believe me I know. Good Luck

I’m 25 years old, had been on the patch since 2003, after I had my second baby on August last year I went back on the patch, but 3 months ago I change to the pill, because the patch was giving me a rash on my skin. Well, since I been on the pill I have not had a period, I took 3 home pregnancy test and they were all negative. I have bad luck with Doctors, every time I go to see them, they run all kind of tests on my that are not necesary. I don’t know what to do.

well, i have the similar case of not having my period. However, i went to the gynacloigst and she gave me pills to get my period, i should have got it 2 days after ending the pills buut here i am three weeks after the pills and still no sigh of the period

(9) Heather says:

I have the same kind of problems. I am 18 and haven’t had my period in over 8 months. I lost about 30 pounds last year but I have kept a steady weight for the past 3 or 4 months at least. i may be a little underweight for my height, but not that much. I am really worried that not having my period will cause me to become infertile later in life. I have been to the doctor twice and all tests come back fine. My gyno wants to put me on the pill but I don’t want to go on it. The doctor prescribed me provera which was supposed to start my period, but it didn’t work. I don’t know what is wrong, but I would love to know!!

After the 1st period, my period came agin after 7 months and followed by 9 months and now even worst. I had consulted few doctors, they did the blood test, ultrasound and nothing wrong with the results. Thay gave me some pills to force my period to come, it worked but I feel like I am un normal. I cant have period every months unless I takes the pills.

(13) Heather says:

I went on birth control from 16 to around 29 years of age…..I stopped taking it and have NEVER had a period. I am now 32 and am just now interested in getting pregnant………..my dr. is putting me on med. to start my period and trying chlomid (sp)? Does anyone else have a similar exp??

(14) Maggie says:

Hey gals, do a bit of research on PCOS, polycystic ovarian syndrome. It is defined by irregular periods, fluctuation in weight and some other symptoms a few of you have been describing. I have it and can’t have a period w/o meds. It usually is some type of birth control combined w/ a diabetes med glucophage. Sometimes affects fertility and sometimes not.

(15) Leah says:

I am 24. I never had a problem with my periods but 4 months ago i stopped getting my period. I take pregancy tests every so often but they all come back neg. The doctors I have consulted say its probably due to stress but im not sure. I am also taking adderall for ADHD that I started taking 4 months ago so that could be it but i also started school 4 months ago so it could be stress, any ideas?

January 6, 2008 at 10:09 pm
(16) Bree says:

Leanne, same here.

I am 19 years old and was on birth control when I was 16. I had a lot of issues with it (including bleeding for 3 months straight) and just stopped taking it.

I have not had a period since, and the doctors don’t seem to care. No tests, just lectures for me not taking birth control. They make it seem so insignificant but if something bad happens, I’m sure I’ll be to blame for “not getting help sooner.”

I am scared and very frustrated. It could be anything.

(17) absent menstruation says:

hey there…. i am having the same problem also… no period for 2 months now… i now that doesn’t seem like anything compared to some of you guyz… but my period never even skips… it’s ALWAYS right on time.. you know…. well if anyone has any ideas please let me know….
im almost certain i’m not a young mother to be because i’ve taken three urine tests now and all negative… any advice???

(18) Gina says:

Hi,
When I turned 18 I stopped having a period for three years. Every doctor I went to said that I was just infertile and put me on birth control. The pills caused me major problems, and I stopped taking them. After 3 yrs, it was discovered that I had a noncancerous growth that took up my right ovary. It had to be surgically removed. Two years later I am having the same problems. My advice is to make sure that your doctor finds out the cause of your problem, and doesn’t just prescribe the pill.

(19) Amy says:

hi im a 16 year old girl and i have not had a perid in over 4 months, i also may be bulimic, and also may have anerexia nervosa.is this the conclusion why i have not had a period.. i dont want to go on the pill though…but none of my family know that i have an eating disorder…what shall i do i cant cope and it doesnt help with my GCSEs coming up this year…

February 5, 2008 at 4:41 pm
(20) bitoresearch says:

Same problem here. Got off nuvaring (which i love btw) and had one period then no more for about 3 months now. I’ve always been irregular and had been on bc for 3 years so I’m not incredibly worried. I did a bit of research to see if i should be. Thought I’d share with you what I’ve found.
The absence of menstrual periods is called amenorrhea. Secondary amenorrhea refers to either the temporary or permanent ending of periods in a woman who has menstruated normally in the past.
Amenorrhea is a symptom. Causes vary.
This website was very helpful regarding causes:
http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/p/pregnancy/book-diseases-11a.htm
It uses a lot of technical terms but if you google the name of the condition you can find info that’s more useful.
None of them really pertain to me so i’m chalking it up to my irregularity and that i just got off birth control. Hormonal birth control prevents you from ovulating so technically i haven’t ovulated for years, it makes sense for a body to take a few months to adjust.
Hope that helps. Google is your friend. Self-diagnosis is common and often more correct than going to the doctor. Look it up.

I’m 21,have not had a period in 5 months,and I’m not pregnant. It might be pof..??

February 8, 2008 at 8:04 pm
(22) Me too says:

People. I have had the same problem. I have a period once every 4 – 6 months. I personally am glad, as I want no children, and periods are annoying. However, I understand many of you do not feel the same way. You need to be tested for PCOS. Poly cystic ovary syndrome. That is the main cause of stopped or sporadic periods. There are some cases where this just happens, and doctors aren’t sure why. Tis life. Could be hormones, could be anything. Accept it and be glad that it isn’t an enlarged heart or something. Be glad you aren’t going to die, that you can adopt a baby and show it love that it otherwise wouldn’t have, and don’t sweat over it your whole life.

(23) Amanda says:

I’m 17 years old and have had irregular periods since I first started to get them. When i was 15, i had my first ovarian cyst and had 3 more since then. I was sent to specialist but each form of birth control they gave me had horrible effects, so i was told to stop taking them. Know I haven’t had a period for close to 5 months. My mother and I are worried so tomorrow I have an appointment with my OBGYN.

(24) Lily says:

I’m 25 and VERY angry at my Dr. I’ve been on BC pills for 7 years. I went off the pills when I was 18 for a year and I never had a period. I went back on the pills at 19. Every year I go for my pap, and tell the dr. that I only have a period (and a very very light one) 3 times a year. She always smiles and says “you are very lucky! that means the pills are working very well in your body”. My husband (of 4 years) and I are now TTC and I’ve been off the pill for 5 months. I haven’t had a period in about 7 months. I called the Dr. and her nurse called me back and said that it was “very normal not to have a period for months after stopping BC pills”. Ummm, NO!!! I think the pill was covering up a problem. I don’t know what to do!?? Do I find a new Dr? WHY DIDN’T ANYONE TELL ME THE RISKS OF TAKING BIRTH CONTROL????? Why didn’t see tell me that not having a period is my body telling me that there is a problem? Uhhh, I should have listened to my body. Why wasn’t I told to take a break from those evil hormones to see if I was ovulating at all? Has anyone else had this problem with their Dr?

(25) Neems says:

Hi, I’m almost 21 years old, and I haven’t had my period since the first of this year. I’ve never been on birth control, and I positively loathe taking pills of any kind unless I have to. I know that I can’t be pregnant, as I’ve never had sex with my boyfriend, but the more and more I look at all these sites out there about late periods and slight cramping and how it means you’re probably pregnant, the more scared I am that something is wrong or that somehow something happened and I’m pregnant. I’m currently overweight and have been for a while now, but I’ve gone back to college after the whole food system on campus changed, and all they have to eat now is pizza, deep-fried things, Taco Bell, and chicken in just about every form you can think of. I’m hoping that my lack of period is due to stress and poor diet, and that nothing more serious is going on. I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow, and I’m positively scared witless!

February 19, 2008 at 11:18 pm
(26) Katherine says:

I am 18.. and well i havnt had a period in over 1 year and 3 months. i am not pregnant, i am sexualy active.. im not on the pill and never have been.. also i have gone to the doctor about it and lol.. he doesnt even know what is wrong with me.. ive gone to 3 different doctors.. been through so many test.. they all say everything is perfect.. maybe im “just lucky”… XD!!!!

I was late in starting my periods (when i was 17 I had my first one!!) then they would ocme and go. i got put on the pill to regulate them but i got depressed and put on loads of weight. I then stopped and lost a few stone and met my current partner.this was when i was 25 and still not a regular cycle. as my sex life took off i went back on the pill and put a tiny bit of weight on but the depression came back. sut still no cycle. i have been tested for everything and even had several ultrasounds. i am due a camera to be inserted but I am not giving up hope of having a family with my partner. my sister is currently pregnant with her first baby and secretly its tearing me apart. at the end of the day i can have as much sex as i want as i have a natural contraception but without traetment im stuck :(

(35) Stefanie says:

Hey everyone. I just wanted to tell you all that everything you have said has convinced me to share my story and some possible questions. I have been on birthcontrol since I was 16 (now 21), I was on the patch for 2 years and just recently the Depo shot. Well, I decided to stop taking the shot after 2 1/2 years. My last shot was October of 2007. Now me and my fiancee are trying to have a child. I haven’t had my period in almost 3 years and am scared to death. I am recently experiencing VERY SORE breasts, light cramping (no period) and fatigue/nausea everyday but no vomiting. I have taken home tests and all have come back negative, recently one last week. Since I got home from our trip my symptoms seem to be getting worse. My DR. just shrugs it off and gives me a lecture of being too young, any advice anyone?? Anything will help!! Thank you in advance!!

(41) Tanya says:

I wanted to comment on Darlene’s reply regarding the NuvaRing. I would caution you about using the NuvaRing. It is a relatively new method of birth control and not widely distributed so it’s true side effects are still uncertain. I tried the NuvaRing a few years ago because I didn’t like the side effects of the pill. The NuvaRing releases estrogem in a different way then the pill and for some people, it’s too much. After a few months using it, I was hospitalized for blood clots on my lungs. I’m not saying it will happen to everyone, but the risk is higher than other methods of birth control that use estrogen(there is a reason they give you all those risks on the TV commercial). If you and your doctor decide it’s the best option for you, then be sure to discuss what your individual risks may be from using it. (family history, smoking, etc all contribute to an increased risk of blood clots with any birth control, especially the NuvaRing).

(44) Karen says:

I’m 19 years old and have been on birth control for about a year and a half. 3 months ago, I stopped getting my period and I haven’t had it since. I’ve never had problems with irregular periods, I’ve never even missed one. I’ve taken 3 pregnancy tests and all have been negative. What is wrong with me?

(45) Jess says:

Hi,
I’m 18…same story really.
My periods have always been erratic but the past year has become more extreme.
I’m very petite and usually around 7 and half stone, but lately I’ve inexplicably dropped to 6 stone 8 (I’m not fasting, bulimic, dieting, anything) and my periods usually come every 2 months or so and last only about 2 days. I’ve not had a period now in about 2 or 3 months. I was slightly concerned that I might be pregnant, so I’ve been weighing myself regularly and my weight has dropped slowly from 6.10 to about 6.8. I took a pregnancy test and got the all clear. I’m currently have bad stomach pains but no sign of any period at all. I’m really worried – I don’t know why I’m losing weight and I believe this to be the cause of my periods stopping.

(46) LJ says:

I’m 22yrs old, not sexually active and I havent had my period since February and its now July. I went from June to February with no period and before that I had gone from November to January.

Im scared, someone help! please!

(47) cdb says:

Hi guys…I too have a story
I started getting my periods around 13 and they were NEVER regular. I was a little overweight through high school and they continued to run a month and 1/2 to two months. Then, when I started losing weight in my late teens, early 20′s, they would start and stop and I’d maybe get 2 or 3 periods a year. Of course, my doctors put me on the pill..it didn’t agree with me and I stopped taking it. Then I had one deprovera shot and when that wore off, I didn’t get my period for a while..steadily, I could look forward to it once every month and a half until this past year..I have not had a period since the middle of April and it’s now the middle of July. I’m not pregnant and I’m a little worried because I’d like to have children soon. I have a doctor’s appointment next week but I am overly concerned that these medications, i.e. birth control and others, are a band aide to a much larger problem. It may be environmental. Hang in there everyone and good luck!

(48) Kara says:

I am 19 years old and 3 months ago my periods were like clockwork always on the 28th or nearish that date every month, then all of a sudden they started becoming later and later with the dates progressing from the begining of the month down to the 10th and then the last one i had was on the 12th which was almost 2 months ago!!
I have taken a test which showed i am not pregnant and i am getting cramps but no period, i have decided to take some pills which actually prevent your period for a few days and then when you stop them they push your period to happen because i am overbursting with hormones waiting to come out. I hope this method works otherwise i am going to have to go to the doctor and like you all say they treat women like its another pain oh well no big deal, i don’t like having my periods but its nice having them so i know everything is in check.

I’m having this problem also. it all started with my sex drive being LOW about a year ago, then I started having vaginal dryness starting a few months ago, now I am about a month or month and a half late for my period.

(52) carly says:

my period still hasn’t come back and it’s been almost 8 months. 17 and not sexually active. i’m super scared to tell ANYONE about it. i don’t wanna go to the doctor cuz i’m sooo scared it will be something like cancer or a tumor. but as i’ve been researching i think that stress is prob whats doing it for me. i went through MAJOR stress over the past schoo yr. and then i went on vacation (time change and jet lag) and my friends mom just died. plus i’m stressing MAJORLY over the no period thing. i pray it’s only stress….i’m scared.

if ANYONE has ANY advice…plzzz share!!!

I am having similar problems. I have been off of birth control since June 2006. I got pregnant in October 2006 and had my baby boy in July 2007. Since he was born I had regular periods until June 2008. My last period was May 2008. I took many pregnancy tests, all negative. I went to the doctor and had a negative pregnancy blood test. Everything else checked out fine, thyroid and all. I am slowly gaining weight, feel pregnant at times, and can swear that I feel a baby kicking inside me jst to the right of my belly button. But even if I was pregnant, isn’t it too early to feel the baby kicking? If you have anything to respond, PLEASE do!

(57) Elonia says:

Hi, I am 27 years old and I have never had a problem with my period until after I got my daughter 7 years ago. At first it was just irregular, missing a few weeks to a month, it then increased to 3 or 4 months after some time. As time went on I got more worried since I was worried about not being able to have more kids. Suddenly, I got pregnant 5 years later (I usually take random pregnancy test because of my miss periods), however I lost the baby three months into the pregnancy. Finally I went to a doctor who advised me that my hormones were imbalanced so she put me on the pills, assuring me that after 7 to 9 months on the pills the problem should go away. Everything was fine for the months I was on the pills, however after I came off the pills the period went away and now it takes about 5 to 7 months before I get one. I am want more kids!! This is frustrating me, I am constantly having pregnancy test done because of what happened before and I do not want to be caught off guard again!! I am going crazy I want to be pregnant!!!!!

(63) Blac Beauti says:

This is crazy because I am all confused and dont know which way to turn. I’m 23 yrs old and I haven’t seen a period since March 07 over a yr and a half ago. I started my period when I was 11 yrs old. I have been on birth control sice I was 16, started out on the pill, then I switched to the shot and was on that for a couple of yrs, then I tried the patch and didnt like it so I got back on the shot. I got off the shot Sept of 05. The end of 06 I got on the Nuva Ring didnt like that because it lowered my sex drive so I got off of birth control all together in March of 07. The funny thing is I got my period with these birthcontrols (except the shot) but I dont have one naturally. So I went to my doc and started pushing the issue because I have no idea what is going on with my body. She did a couple of blood test but then referred my to a GYN and she did the same thing and referred me to a rheumotogist because she thinks that it might be a autoimmune disorder and this might be why I dont get a period and why my ovaries might not me working propely. My BIG issue with this is that i’m at the age now where I want to have a baby and I just want to make sure that everything is okay so that I can do that in the near future. Having a period is part of being a woman and without one how will I know if I am ovalating or if i will be able to have children at all. I just pray that everything turns out okay.

Hey everyone I also haven’t had a period in like going on 9 months n I don’t know why. I been having all the symptoms but no period. I don’t know why but I’ve been thinking I have a brain tumor but who knows. It’s been important to me but not really to anyone else but I going to find me a OBGYN because I am kinda worried about my self which at my age {15} I need to be. I think its from stress but who knows sometimes I think the doctors barely know about teenage bodies and what we go threw but its not gone hurt to see what they have to say because they know more this then I do they just don’t know more about my body then me. I wish everyone good luck and hope its nothing drastictly serious thanks!

(67) tell0007 says:

Ladies- It is very common for women who have just begun menstrating to miss periods, Don’t stress. If you are sexually active and missing periods be sure to take a pregnancy test to rule it out. If you have recently stopped taking birth control pills and have not seen a normal reoccurance of periods this is common also. Some women can actually be more fertile after stopping the pill. Regardless of your age or situation if you have missed a period for 3 months or more, you should see your doctor. Periods are a reassurance that everything is working as it should, and the uterine lining that is building up needs to shed (which is what your period is). If it doesn’t we worry about a endometriosis which could lead to other conditions later in time. Don’t stress, just go to your Dr. and tell them your story.

(70) Shannon L says:

Depending on your age, this could be due to menopause. Other causes could be lack of ovulation or polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). You should schedule an appointment with your gynocologist to get checked out. They will need to do a pregnancy test (preferrably a blood test) to rule out pregnancy. Also, they will need to check your hormones to make sure you are producing progesterone, the hormone that is released causing the membrane in the uterus to detach thus causing a menstrual cycle. If your hormones are out of whack, they will probably give you a high dose of progesterone to take over a short period of time in order to induce a cycle. Sometimes this helps your body get back into a cycle, but sometimes it doesn’t.

I’m going through the same thing currently. I’m 24 and have been on the ortho trycyclen birth control pill for four years. I stopped taking the pill in June because my husband and I are wanting to try to conceive this December. I had a cycle in June after stopping but it was VERY light and only lasted two days. Following that, it was 40 days until my next cycle, again VERY light and only two and a half days long. It has now been 75 days and still no period. I’ve got a doctor’s appointment to check my hormones scheduled for Nov. 19. I’m really hoping we can figure out what’s going on by December so we can start trying. I will try to update you on what my doctor says.

Note: I have two sisters (one with two children and one with one child) who are currently going through similar situations. My sister with only one child had complications due to gestational diabetes with her first child, then miscarried about a year later. They tried for three years before conceiving their first child. Since then they have had trouble trying to conceive and are looking into Chlomid and even adoption.

Best of luck!

Hi, I’m 17 and I’m having the exact same problem!

Execpt my period has NEVER been regular. I first got it when I was 13 and it didnt return for months. And it also never comes two months back to back. I play a lot of sports and I have lost a lot of weight because sometime I just dont feel like eating.

but I am afraid that I am infertile. And that scares me, because my Aunt is, yet she gets her period every month. I’m afraid to say anything to my mom because she’ll think that my boyfriend and I are fooling around. But I haven’t had a period in over 3 months, yet…no symptoms of pregnancy. I’m at a lost for words…any help please??

(73) Kristi says:

I am 23,I didn’t have my period for nearly 3 months. During this time I went to the doctors for some tests.
I was previously on the pill for 5 years, I stopped and had normal period for 8 months, then nothing for 3 months.
All hormonal blood tests were normal so she sent me for an ultrasound.
In the end it showed that I had cysts in my ovaries, which suggested I had poly cystic ovary syndrome.
They re-tested my blood specifically for FAI levels which confirmed I have this syndrome.
On researching this I have found that this explains why I’ve been putting on weight and noticing slightly more or darker body hair.
Being on the pill since I was 17, has basically been masking the symptoms of this as it helps control the hormone levels.
Don’t be afraid to go to your doctor and ask the question.
I just wanted to post a reply because I too was researching possible causes of my missing period. Everyone seemed to post here with their problem, but no-one was coming back with outcomes.
I hope this helps at least one person ease their mind to go & see the doctors.
Enjoy!

I understand where you’re coming from with the eating disorder. Get help as soon as possible because it is very detrimental to your health and mind. All the models in the magazines are photoshoped and unhealthy so don’t measure you’re weight on them. You are beautiful no matter what size!

I’m 22 and haven’t had a period in 7 months, I’ll have one that lasts from 2 weeks- 1 month, but then don’t have one for a long period of time. I have been tested for hyperthyriodism, diabetes, ovarian cancer, HPV, poly-cystic ovaries, etc etc. Any test that can be done i have had it. I have taken birth control but it only makes me gain weight. I also have no sex drive, vaginal dryness, and mood swings. So I am sorry to all of you who are expericeing the same symptoms as me.

hi
I haven’t had my period for 3 months and it really freaked me out. Right now I’m fourteen and I am not sexually active. I’m also not stressed out either. I did some internet searching and found out skipping periods at this age is normal, but I’m still a little scared. I told my mom and she said it’s not that bad and when she comes to see me she will take me to see a doctor. Just some advice…I would tell somebody about this kind of problem as early as possible, your doctor or your parents….its way better getting yelled at or anything else than having to wait a really long time about the problem letting it get worse. Its best to fix the problem in the begining than finding out you have this weird disease thats too late to fix because you were afraid to get help. So go get help now!

I am freaking out! I am 21 (almost 22) and have had my period since age 13 pretty regularly. I’ve never had sex without a condom, and the last time I had sex was November 9th. Before thatI got my period November 2nd and then again November 29th. December I had it the 28th- so everything seemed fine. I did not have my period at all the month of January, and it is February 3rd and still no period! I have no symptoms of pregnancy and I’m extremely nervous. I’ve taken one pregnancy test and it came back negative- but if I don’t get my period by next week I am taking another one. I’m sooo worried :(

(90) Heather says:

Iíve been having the same type of symptoms except I started out with foggy urine that had an odd smell. A couple of days after the cloudiness in my urine went away I started spotting and having bad lower back pain. This is after ending my period ten days prior. The second day into having back pain and spotting the pain in my back got worse and I started bleeding like I would be on my period. The back pain I have been experiencing has gotten worse and it hurts extremely bad and I am still bleeding which brings great concern to me. I have no health Insurance and havenít yet seen a doctor. Because I have no Insurance I have been avoiding seeing the doctor. Does anyone have ANY helpful diagnosis or help on this case?? Thank you!

(91) jane says:

As almost everyone else, same story here … I started my period when i was 13, always been very regular. I got pregnant and had my son when i was 21. Even after that, my periods were very regular. Now I’m 26 and me and my husband started trying for a second child, six months later, my period stopped. I took the home pregnancy test, negative. In jan, I took a blood pregnancy test, again negative. My last period was Nov 22 to 27th. Now it’s almost Valentine’s Day and still no period. Since I’m not pregnant the dr can’t get me in until April, which in my opinion is ignorant. I’m so anxious beyond belief to find out what is wrong with me. I’m so very frightened that it could be menopause and I’ll not be able to share the joy with my son of giving him a sibling. Maybe it is for the best, maybe something would have been wrong with my second child if I was able to have another, I just don’t know. I’m so sad about the whole thing I keep trying to cheer myself up, but it doesn’t work. I can’t even go to sleep at night because i’m constantly playing stories in my head as to what could be the problem for my periods to have stopped like they did. and my mood swings are beyond a mood swing, it’s more dr. jekyl and mrs. hyde. I just don’t know what else to do but wait for that apt. in april and hopefully they wont blow me off yet again.

hi well im 18 yrs old iv been on the depo shot for a yr now and i havent had a period in like 10 months but thts not really my concern my consern is tht me and my boyfriend of 3 yrs now are plning on having a baby but alot of people are say being on depo will prevent that is there other options i can do so i am able to have kids

(93) Tabetha says:

I was on the depo shot for about 2 years. My last one was Nov.2007 and i finally restarted my period the last week of august 2008, it was normal and lasted 5-6 days. Then i started almost exactly 2 weeks later from the first day of the previous but it only lasted that one day and was light. It is now Feb. 2009 and still have not had a period since then. I am not pregnant! I will admit that i have some stressful situations going on but my question is can stress cause you to miss your period for 5+ months or could this still be caused from the depo shot?

(94) Becky says:

I got my first period at 14, by the time I was almost 19, I had only ever had a total of about 5-6 periods in that 5 year span. My mom and I never talked about periods so I never mentioned anythign and didn’t see a doctor about it until I was almost 19. I was diagnosed with PCOS, put on yasmin and it completely regulated me to the point of where I can give you a 12 hour time frame of when I’ll start my period. So fast forward to today – I’m almost 26, have been on the pill for almost 7 years and now, for the second month in a row, instead of a period, I’ve had 2 days of very light spotting instead of my period. I’ve never been pregnant, have no idea of what it feels like to be pregnant and I honestly don’t think I am (my boyfriend and I have regular unprotected sex because of me being on the pill, plus I’ve been told by my doctor that he doesn’t know if I’ll be able to get pregnant on my own and wont know until I decide to try adn go off the pill) but this week for the first time I bought a jar of pickles and was eating them from teh jar all week – and I never eat pickles. I’m trying not to stress, but luckily my yearly gyno appt is next week so I’ll know next week if I’m pregnant or is my body is just suddenly out of whack….

to all those who have skipped alot of periods…

i’m 16 and about a year ago i had missed about 6months of periods .. i got pretty worried but knew i couldn’t be pregnant as i hadnt had sex.. so i just tried not to think about it.. anyways.. since then i havent missed a period.. they came back on their own :)

i’ve been told periods can be irregular and can be skipped for long periods of time by my health and social care teacher :) best to nip the doctors though if you are really worried about it.. i know how it feels to be that anxious but i doubt there’s anything to worry about :) good luck x

(107) Very Frustrated! says:

I am 36 and have not had a period for 13 weeks. I have never been on any kind of birth control and my periods have always been somewhat irregular, although my last 3 periods were each 3 weeks apart. I have taken several pregnancy tests – all come back negative. I went to see an ob/gyn and $60 later I still don’t know anything. Dr. brushed me off and said all my hormone levels were normal, but refused to address the issue that I had not had a period in 11 weeks at the time. He wouldn’t even examine me, order a blood test, ultrasound, nothing. I wanted to scream and tell him that not having a period in 11 weeks is NOT normal! I’ve had some symptoms of pregnancy, but never having been pregnant before, I don’t know what to expect, and each of those symptoms can mean something else entirely. Tried to schedule appt with a different dr, but they’re trying to tell me to see my primary care physician. I can’t seem to find a dr. to take this seriously! I can’t take anymore time off work and my husband and I really worry that there could be something really wrong and we may never find out, cuz drs don’t want to take the time and listen. I just don’t know what to do.

(109) Same Boat says:

Amenorrhea
Amenorrhea is the medical term for not having periods. There are two types of amenorrhea:

Primary Amenorrhea is exceptionally rare – it’s not having started periods by the age of 16. This can be caused by: abnormalities in the cervix, uterus or vagina (such as a narrow cervix, double uterus or transverse vaginal septum); late onset of puberty; and pregnancy.

Secondary Amenorrhea is much more common and there are loads of reasons for it. Missing your period isn’t officially amenorrhea until you’ve missed it for three months in a row, but the causes of missing one period and missing more than one are generally the same.

Common causes of missing a period (or amenorrhea)
To menstruate, the uterus, cervix, vagina and ovaries, as well as the pituitary gland and hypothalamus (which are located in the brain and control the hormones which cause menstruation), must be working normally. There are lots of reasons for these to not be functioning as they usually do, some more serious than others.

Pregnancy: is the most common cause of amenorrhea. Periods are not expected to resume until after childbirth and breast-feeding women may also find that they don’t have periods.

Recently started periods: For about a year after your first period it’s not uncommon for your cycle to be very erratic or even to miss your period for several months.

Lifestyle:
1. Major changes in your life, (new job, sudden massive workload, bereavement) can create enough stress to make you to miss your period.
2. Rapid weight gain or loss can cause amenorrhea. In particular amenorrhea is associated with malnutrition or low body fat caused by eating disorders.
3. Too much exercise, often connected with heavy dieting, can also stop your periods. Just because you’re really fit, stopping your periods isn’t any healthier. Periods are a sign of your body working properly.
4. In some cases heavy smoking can also be the cause of amenorrhea.

July 13, 2009 at 3:42 pm
(117) Like you says:

Hey guys, please read Same Boat’s comment as its pretty helpful and accurate.

Other things to note which might also help you guys is that if you have missed your period (1-3 periods) and you took a urine pregnancy test (whether at home or at the doctor’s), this can be inaccurate and multiple negative tests can also be inaccurate i.e 3 negative tests can be inaccurate. The only way to know for sure is to have an ultrasound, because even blood tests can be negative (although this is less common than a false negative urine test).

Yes! As long as semen (and thus, sperm) has entered your vagina, you can be pregnant. If you humped with clothes on and no fluids went into your vagina – you are NOT pregnant. If he pulled out before he ejaculated, YES! you can be pregnant because ‘precum’ contains sperm (and YES he did precum).

If you are overweight, have lots of acne, notice a bit of facial hair, painful irregular heavy periods or no periods at all – Check out PCOS – Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome – as a reason for your absent periods (or amenorrhoea). Dont have those symptoms, but other ladies in your family have it, then check it out as well.

Also, pregnancy sysmptoms not only vary between women, but they can also vary between different pregnancies. Pregnancy number one might have all the classic symptoms – no periods, nausea, weight change, breast changes (size/tenderness), tiredness, back pains etc but same woman and pregnancy number 2 may have NO symptom at all. This is very common. So just because you dont ‘feel pregnant’ because you dont have the ‘same symptoms’ as before, it does not mean you arent pregnant.

If you have had a D+C before in the past (whether from having a growth in your uterus/womb or having an abortion or an incomplete miscarriage and your doctor had to go in down there and suck and curette the left over contents of your womb), and your period is either missing, or your periods are suddenly very light/irregular or during the time your periods were due you get cramping but no bleed (all from the time since the operation), you could have what is known as ‘Asherman’s syndrome’. This is scarring in the uterus wall that prevents a lining from forming or getting the walls of your uterus to ‘stick’ together so blood cant go through to you cervix and out. Its rare but more common the more you have D+C (e.g multiple abortions)

Saying ‘i have no cash to see a doctor’ is a pretty poor excuse if you think you are pregnant and are searching here for reasons to convince yourself you are not. In the end, if you are pregnant, you’ll need to see a doctor anyway, unless you plan to have the baby quietly at home where the risk of disease and complications are so high, you and your baby could die and the cost of the funeral for your relatives is an even bigger burden… and even if you went out ok (unlikely), but because you never had a health checkup or took the necessary diet etc, your baby could be born riddled with sickness and it would cost you a lot more.. Also, look for a woman’s clinic or a maternity clinic as they can be free/cheaper.

July 22, 2009 at 3:26 pm
(118) Getoverit says:

To those ladies who are actively trying to get pregnant:

Whether you want to call it “god” or a “higher” power, your destiny is already laid out for you whether you believe it or not. If you are having sex there is NO WAY to force or prevent a pregnancy. What is meant to happen will happen whether you like it or not. Whatever is meant to happen will happen whether your on birth control or not, whether you use condoms or not, or even a combination of the both. If you are meant to have a child it will happen regardless of what your doctors tell you about your infertility rate. In the end your final destination is already laid out for you. There is absolutely nothing you can do to change that. You can choose how you get there, but it doesn’t matter what path you take because they will all lead to the same spot. Just like driving to your house, there are multiple routes you can take, but they all lead you home.

(121) Amber says:

this sounds very much like PCOS. i started getting my periods when i was 12. i went on bcp at 17 because i had cramps so bad they would drop me to my knees. i was on the pill for 2.5 years before i lost insurance and couldnt afford to pay for them. 2 months after i stopped taking them i realized i was a week late. sure enough, i was pregnant. i had my daughter in august 2004. when i went for my 6 week check-up, i had just gotten my first pp period so i got the depo shot. i HATED it. my arm hurt so bad i could barely hold my daughter for almost a week. not to mention making me sick the entire first week. and i would cramp so bad but not bleed every month. i tried going through planned parenthood for pills but they wouldnt give them to me due to my history of migraines. i figured since i was a single mom and wasnt having sex, i didnt need bc anyway so i used nothing until aug 2005 when i went back to my ob/gyn and got put back on the pill. slowly my weight started to climb. by may 2006 i decided no more pills. i was getting huge from them (i still hadnt lost the baby weight and now i was gaining more). i got married in july 2006 and my husband and decided to try for another baby. i still had regular periods and everything seemed fine. i would occasionally be a little late but i figured it was just one of the changes after having a baby. before my daughter i was like clockwork. in june 2007 i was diagnosed with PCOS. since then i have put on 50lbs. i was getting my period fairly regularly until last august. after my august period i went 3 months without, had one in november, and its been almost 9 months and i havent had another. my gyne said that weight increase is a common side-effect of pcos, but the weight gain itself can make the pcos worse, and cause irregular periods or make them cease altogher.

August 3, 2009 at 6:44 pm
(122) Carissa says:

I am 20 years old, and I am also missing my periods. I am now 4 months late for my period. I tried 4/5 pregnancy tests all within the first and second month of being late, all of which came back negative. I thought I had started my period end of June after going to the loo but nothing came of it, and the same again a few days ago..But again, nothing at all came of it..Both times I just had small amounts of blood in my discharge.

I have always been regular with my periods, give or take a day. I started my period aged 9, so I’ve really gotten to understand my body and how it functions, so this has really thrown me. Of course I understand bodies change over time, but seems a bit dramatic. I was put on the pill when I was 16 due to extremely heavy periods, which caused me to be physically sick and bed ridden for the first 2 days of each period. Total nightmare. The pill fixed that problem for me, but I stopped taking that a good long while ago.

I have had problems in the past (roughly 3 years ago..Suffered for a year before I decided to do anything about it), with my lower abdomen. I was taken into hospital with extremely painful cramps, the first doctor who saw me wanted me to have numerous tests done..Once I was sent to the GYN ward to start my series of tests, the consultants on the ward there gave me my first smear to test for pregnancy and STIs etc..Then I was sent home without having all the other tests that the first doctor wanted me to have. Still flares up from time to time.
I have also had 3 questionable periods, where as at the end of each *something* came away..Something fleshy. At each time, I’ve kind of put it to the back of my head, trying not to read too much into it and buried my head in the sand..Although on the last occasion I did show my mum (Cringe factor! But I needed an opinion)and she kept questioning me on whether I could’ve been pregnant, of course I just said no out of fear of an ear bashing. I believe these may have been miscarriages..If so, why? Especially 3 times?! This is something I am going to ask my doctor.

I went to see my doctor Monday of last week, about my missed periods. He seemed very concerned, he asked to feel my tummy..He felt the sides where my felopian tubes are, then central lower abdomen twice, which was painful which he could tell from my face followed with asking me if it hurt. I do not know if he felt anything, but I guess he cant really say until he knows for sure. I sent for me to have tests done the following day which included blood, a urine sample and swabs taken. He sent those off with URGENT stamped on them. I have my follow up appointment this Thursday for my results and next steps. I am very worried, with reading up on all the different possibilities and past issues. I have yet to tell the doctor about those past issues, it wasnt something I’d thought about or clued together until after.

Sorry to ramble on. Just thought I would contribute..Let you all know there are more people out there with these problems too. It’s horrible to feel alone in something like this.

This comment is particularly for Louisa…I am 34. I did not get my first cycle until I was 16, then not again for 9 months…and throughout my life longer and longer spans between. My, now, husband and I thought that I would never conceive and wer without birth control for 6 years. I conceive my daugther after all of that time and having two cyles (three years went by without one and she was conceived with no period at all!). I have PCOS, an underactive thyroid (Hashimotos), Fybrocystic Breasts and now they think I have Endometriosis! I thin I may be pregnant as we speak and have had no period for five years! DON’T GIVE UP HOPE!!! I am lving proof that there are miracles. I did not go on the pill like the doctors wanted…instead I did a liver and kidney cleanse (a proper one, not the Master Cleanse crap you see), lost some wieght, and started juicing for fertility and the liver. I believe with my whole heart that it was my desire and this that brought me my little miracle! I think that you need to prepare yourself mind and body and it will happen!

Hi,

I can’t quite believe how mamy of us have the same problem. Here is my story, so you don’t give up hope:-)
I am 28, always had a big gaps between my periods, having them once or twice a year…Went to doctors and all tests came back fine. Then I went on the pills and had them every month, then I stopped taking them and no period for months again.. I was told I will have problems to concieve or might have to have surgery to help concieve. I continued being sexually active with my partner without any contraception thinking that I would never get pregnant anyway. At last I got period after nine long months and a couple months later I discovered I was PREGNANT! My son is now 2 years old and since the birth I had maybe 5 periods. We are now hoping for another baby and who knows, fingers crossed, we might be lucky again :-) ..
Don’t give up the hope! Good luck!

(131) Amy says:

I have almost always had issues with my period or lack there of. For a year or so it was normal then it just went away only to show up every blue moon. The only way I have a period is if I take birth control pill so that in itself tells me that I have a hormone imbalance.(I think) The doctors would tell me at first it was because I was underweight then when I had gained too much weight, they said it’s because I was obese. Anyways, after years of never having a period except for 1 or 2 every year or two I wondered if I had fertility problems. Within 2 weeks of trying, I was pregnant. Just shows you that you do not have to have an actual “period” to conceive. I don’t know how that is but it seems no doctor I have ever seen knows either. I’m still looking for a doctor that cares enough to find out why so many of us have this same problem, what it is and how it is truly effecting our health.

I’ve been having similer problems, i have been on the pill since i was 15, when i was about 27 i started having problems with spotting etc, eventally the dr suggested i came off the pill when i was 29, which i did, my husband and i wanted to start for a baby soon anyway. Since i stopped taking the pill i havent had a period for a year! I’ve been back to the drs and had tests, and am due to go back in November. I’ve been really worried and just want my body to work, i’m very healthy, normal weight, go to the gym etc, so why is my body not working properly!! Its good to know i’m not the only one!

(142) anonymous says:

Hi Im 15 and I have been having issues with my period ever since it started. I started right after i turned 15 and have only had 2 period since. I did not get my second one until 7 months after the first one. I went to the doctor and was told that it was normal because I just started menstruating but my periods are extremely light. To the point where I won’t even have to wear a panty liner because it’ll just be clean if I wipe it every 3 hours. I’ve been very worried that I’m infertile (aren’t we all) but Im just watching to see what happens now (currently on my second period.)

(146) kay says:

Hi,
I am a 19 year old, perfectly healthy to my knowledge, and have only had one period in the last 6 months. I have read all the comments but none seem to be exactly the same. I’ve had regular periods since I started at age 12, including while I was on the pill which I started at 16. I stopped the pill at age 18 in January 2009, and after stopping continued to have regualr period until July 2009. I skipped my period from Aug. 2009 until December 2009 but I thought it was because of stress ( I have had family issues and I moved away from home for the firs time) I got my period in Dec. and it was heavy but understandably so. I’m not stressed so much now and I thought that was why I got it again, however I have now skipped it for January again. I am sexually active but have not had sex without condom. I take 2 pregnancy test a month and are all negative. It is very hard for me to see a doctor here because I do not have one seeing as I just moved. Does anyone have the same or very similar problem? And hae you gotten a diagnosis?

Hi I am 15 and i havent had my period for like a year!!! when i had it though it was always irregular like once every 2 months or 1 every 2 weeks it was just always different. What could be wrong with me?? and should i go to the doctor over this or be worried over it?

(148) Amy says:

I am 26, haven’t been on birth control for about year and during that time never had a cycle. I was taking maca root to help cycle, but that also makes you 100% fertile and we aren’t looking to hear the pitter patter so I stopped taking them (the pills helped my cycle three months then stopped working). I have been gaining weight like mad too recently and have no idea why. My doctor had me go in and is running some lab work on some blood tests so hopefully I will get some answers. Nice to know that I am not alone :)

Hi, my names Jasmine. I am 20 years old, and have not had my period in over 5 months!! I always been irregular, not preg. 101% I’m not. Last time this happened to me, I went nearly 8 months with no period, and doctor said I was anemic, and gave me some pills to take, ferrous sulfate I believe the name was. Non the less, after a week or so I got it… now this is happening again. I am sexually active, but lately I have not had sex, is having too much sex a cause of not getting your period on time??? This is really frustrating, and plain scary! Please someone explain whats wrong with me…

I’m forty and my last period was 10/8/09. I knew I was not pregnant. I did not go to the doctor. I became very worried when I did not see it in February 2010. Could you believe the damn thing came back last night just when I was about to sign up for the gym today (2/9/10). I sure did not miss having a period. I only hope that I’m healthy. I hope this will not be long as some of you guys. I cant bear to go five days bleeding let alone two, three weeks. My doctors appointment is 2/24/10 and God knows I dont want to go to the doctor with a period. Appointments are hard to come by these days when you live in a big city. Damn, I hope I dont have to cancel my appointment.

Man, who knew this was so common?! I’m 32 and all of a sudden, my period stops and is no where to be found. I haven’t had a period since October 2009 and am very worried. I don’t have insurance as of yet so I can’t go to the doctor, but hopefully will get insurance soon.

I always had regular periods until my miscarriage then I went four months and got a shot to get it started. I had a period then next month I was pregnant again. After I had my son, I went 8 months with no period, then it just came back. This time, nothing happened. No miscarriage, no baby and no period. I was very stressed but now that’s subsided.

I am over weight but have no symptoms of PCOS and I know PCOS is linked to diabetes and I’m not diabetic (been tested) so who knows. Any suggestions?

(165) Joyce says:

Hello ladies,
I’m 24 years old and I was on birth control pills between the age of 16 and 22. I stopped taking BC in July of 2008. I went from July 08 to Jan 09 without having a period. In Jan 09 I went on a diet and started exercising on a regular basis, which I believe caused my period to come during the month of Jan. I was so excited because I thought that my cycles were finally “back to normal”, as so I thought. I haven’t had a period since then. I went to my OBGYN the doctor in Sept 09 and explained what was going on and that my fiancť and I were TTC. My doctor took blood work and an ultrasound and everything came back perfectly fine. She showed me follicles on both my right and left ovaries which indicated I had eggs there ready to be released and she didnít understand why I wasnít have a period. We even went to get my fiancťís sperm count check and everything was normal for him too. She prescribed me Provera which induce my period… within that cycle I also was prescribed 50mg of Clomid. I tested for ovulation and to my disappointment, no ovulation occurred. After the first attempt, I was so frustrated so I waited a few months to try Clomid again. In Jan 2010 I decided to give Clomid another try but I then requested to up my dosage to100mg since I didn’t ovulate on 50mg. Took Provera to induce my cycle, then took 100mg of Clomid and STILL NO OVULATION!!! I donít know if itís because Iím a little overweight is why the Clomid didnít help me to ovulate, I donít know. Iím back on my diet and exercise plan now after loosing 25lbs but I still havenít had a ďnormal periodĒ. I even thought about going back on BC pills for at least 3 months to see if that brings my period back. Iím not sure what else to do. I want to have a baby and we’ve been trying for almost two years now . Iím going to switch doctors to get a second opinion and see what happens. Keep us in your prayers and I sure will do the same for all of you! Good luck!!

Hi Gals!
I am 20 and had an abortion a year ago, went on birth control for 4 months. My periods in the last 3 months have been very messed up. I am currently 2 weeks late, but have felt cramping for the last month and week.

I am not a fan of abortions, but in my situation it was the best thing for me to do.

I went to the doctor and he did blood tests but I havent heard the results. If anyone else has had something similuar, let me know.

Thanks!

(167) Sarah says:

I think I have an interesting story.
When I was in the 12th grade, I went on the pill to being more regular. Since I was 16, I had never really had a regular period. My doctor recomended the pill to me.
I wasn’t sexually ative at the time. So I went on it.

After high school, in the winter I got really sick. I was diagnosed with Pneumonia. Water in and around my lungs. It hurt to breath all the time. I was put on a anti biotic and it did help me feel better. I never really did get better tho. I was really tired. And there was still a sharp pain in my left lung.
Then one night, my chest really hurt. Mum called the hospital. My heart rate, if I remember correctly, was 170 or 180. I dont really remember. I just remember it being really high.

Turns out I had, had a blood clot. It at traveled from my legs to my lung, and through my heart then into the right lung.
I was on Warferine (I dont remember how to spell it.) A blood thinner. It was a good year and I would say 6 months, till I was taken off them. I am heald. I only have some scar tissue now in my lung.

But now, it has left me to NEVER ever be aloud on the pill.Ever.
And my period is still very much irgular. I am not pregnant.
And my period hasn’t come for the past 6 months.

At 12 I started my period it was steady until I started birth control (ortho tri cyclen low) at 16. From 16 to 18 it was normal and happened when it should on the placebo week. At 18 I stopped having a period so i stopped my birth control (just in case I was pregnant) I didn’t have my period for almost 2 years when it came back. My doctor said it was stress. After that I went on birth control (nuvaring) I’ve been on it from 18 to 22. In October I stopped and its been almost 9 months without it. Now I’m thinking something is wrong. Do you think birth control has done this to us? Why didn’t anyone tell us about this? Can I still get pregnant? I’m going to a new doctor next week and lets hope for some good news?

(183) Evlyn says:

Hello, I’m 19 years old. I started my period at 12, and it continued regularly. Until my mid-14th year I stopped altogether. I ,of course, attributed it to stress, but after 6 months I still got nothing. Now, I never was the kind of girl with bloating, cramps, or even dower disposition. I went about my time of the month like normal. So after a full year I had 1 period and then it went back to nothing again. Later, being more curious I eventually had sex at 18. I bled for a while, and when it stopped I got worried that I was pregnant. I wasn’t. I have been to the doctors and gynecologist. Neither have found any prominent problems or explanations. I am worried that I might never be able to have children, although I do not want them for a long while, I still would like the opportunity. So now I am here asking for anyone’s help. Is there by chance any explanation in which would account for these symptoms. I am very worried. I have gained a substantial amount of weight and no matter what I try I cannot lose it. I am not an idle person and I work out for over an hour practically everyday. I am beginning to wonder if this is a symptom. Please give any advice that you can. Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you for the consideration.

Hi. I’m 15 years old. I’ve never really had sex, although my boyfriend and I rubbed against each other and he got precum on my vagina, but he DID urinate after his previous ejaculation which washes away left over sperm. Still, I started worrying that I was pregnant after my period didn’t come. I’ve missed two periods, but three pregnancy tests say Negative. Ever since the moment we rubbed against each other, I’ve been highly stressed and anxious about it…plus, I had finals and that was also very stressful. So I am not pregnant, but my period still hasn’t come. Does anyone have any clue what it can be besides stress?

i’m 16 and i haven’t had my period in 3 months, but i’m not sexually active so i know i’m not pregnant. I’m on the shot and i’m due to go back in a couple days, but i thought i was still suppose to have a period while i’m on the shot. I’m sort of confused and scared so i hope nothings wrong. I mean before the shot i usually had regualar periods and i was on the pill but switched so i didn’t have to worry about taking it everyday and stuff.. But this is scaring me now.

Girls of all ages: We all have to be really careful. Please don’t rely on anonymous websites to educate you about your valuable life and your self-worth. Talk to a woman in your life that you trust; mom, aunt, g-ma, teacher, neighbor? Plus, while the doctors have the education, don’t let your doctors educate you on your own values and morals. BCP, nuvaring, etc and Termination of Pregnancy — don’t be surprised when you cannot conceive later on. It’s a hideous, evil lie that it’s OK to participate in either. It is NOT OK and I think this long string of emails outlining unhappiness, dread, fear, and confusion is a good example. Wait to be sexually active until you are married — you are worth it. Don’t get messed up in birth control even after marriage. Natural Family Planning — check it out. Look at how messed up the lives of so many women are because of birth control! (And yes, I am one of them — 35 and took BCP most of my life, I was suckered into believing the lies.)

When I got married I decided to come off the pill since my huband and I wanted to get pregnant then I stopped having my period all together it was three months after I came off the pill when I finally went to the doctor and they put me on provera to make my period start. It worked and I had on the same month now I have gone four more months with out a period I had what I thought was the start of it today but it only spotted for for a couple hours then nothing. what could be the cause of this?

Didn’t have it for 3 YEARS, I want to have another child but my period has to start, i had it for 2 months this year, but it’s gone again. My Doct. just started me on Progester One (Provera), a family friend an RN said it worked for her. I am hoping it will regulate my period so that i can try to have a baby.

(198) Erin says:

I’m not sure what’s going on with me. I never had regular periods growing up. I was married at 20 and wanted to have a baby. For a year and a half I had 4 cycles. It worked out for the best seeing as I’m not divorced. After my divorce my periods starting coming every month regularly. I’m now 25 and have been having regular periods for the past 2 and a half years without being on any birth control. But this month my period is almost 2 weeks late. I haven’t had any serious changes in my weight. I’m not unusually stressed about anything in my life. This summer was very stressful and it was regular the whole summer, but now when I’m not stressed it’s late.

I’m 15 and I just started my period this year. I had it good for the first one, then it skipped, and I had another out of the blue, not constant at all. Since then several months have gone by and I’ve had to wear pads for almost a month now because of light bleeding but nothing more. Sometimes nothing even happens at all, and then it goes heavy for a day and then nothing. I’m really worried. I’m not pregnant, obviously, haven’t gained weight, and don’t have eating disorders. I don’t know what to do–any advice?

I always have the fear of being infertile, due to the use of the Pill.

Could someone please help me?

To All Ladies having trouble with your Menstruation. I suggest when you go to you GP to get your Thyroid Levels checked. It is something that controls your whole body levels and can cause other hormones to stop working.

Have a talk to a naturopath about other options is another great idea which helped me with falling pregnant because the medical physicians can only give medications to help the symptoms they never can fix the underlying problem.

i am experiencing the same thing. I’m 33 yrs old and i never had a problem with my monthly period not until this last month of August and September, my last period was around first week of July and until now I still havent got my period yet. Been to the clinic and tested so many out of the counter pregnancy test and still it comes out negative. What could be wrong with me? I am worried and will have another appointment with my OB this coming October 7, hope everything is fine, but what cause this?

(210) Mayra says:

Surprise, I’m going throught the same thing. I was using the pill for a couple of years because my period was irregular. Then I started using them for birth-control. Then, I wanted to get off the pill becaue I wasn’t sexually active. And now 7 months later, no period. I went to the doctor and they tested my blood and checked 3 times to seeif I was pregnant and im wasn’t and still isn’t. They checked my thyroids and did a ultra-sound and everything came back normal. All the doctors said was “everything is normal, we don’t know what is wrong with you”. All I know is ima leave it in God’s hands because even the doctors can’t cure everything. You’re not alone, as you can see. There are lots with the same problem.

I havnt told my mum yet because she’ll freak and assume im pregnant. If you know theres something you can do please please please HELP ME!

(212) 2scared says:

I was going through the same problem. Im 22 years old and I had a period on April 4, 2010 and did not have it again until October 23, 2010. My doctor told me it was stress because I Graduated May, 8, and got married may 15, and i was under stress looking for a job. When I went to him in June he told me there was nothing that he could do until my period was gone for atleast 4-6 months. So I made an appt for November 4, 2010 to see if I might have a problem with my ovaries or a hormone imbalance. i was also on the pill from 2007 until December 2009 and everything was good until after april. Im hoping that it was really just stress because i got a job in august and started exercising. So I just hope that everything is okay down there.

I am a 19 yr old female who started her period at the age of ten. My periods have never been normal, but now i dont even have them!! It has been almost a year without a peiod and trust me i hav taken allot of pregnancy tests all coming back negative. I am beginning to see a pattern when it comes down to birth control though. I used to take the pill when i was 15-18 and when i got off of it i no longer got my periods!!! I was reading other comments and they also had problems that involved birth control! Im definitly going to my doctor about this. Im scared and i feel as though im wierd in some way. I think all of you other women should get checked out at well. I hope you all well!!

(215) Jamie says:

What I wanna know is…all these people have all these stories and say they are going to the doctor…but they never come back and post what was found or anything that was said after posting their story. I read all of the post and still feel like I totally wasted my time. I don’t know where else to go. I haven’t had a period since before thanksgiving last year. Doc says it’s normal, but I constantly have cramps and feel flutters in my stomach, like when you are pregnant, but all tests are negative. I take 2 tests a month just to make sure. I used to be regular until I had my first child in may 2008. I think after reading all of the posts… I’m even more frustrated!

(220) Julie says:

22 years old, missed period for 4-5 months now. Before that there was a period where i started exercising everyday and my period were still normal so i kinda ruled out the cause. Then during July/August this year I had a serious session of diarrhea for 17 days every morning and my weight drastically went down from 48.6 to 46.7! went to a dr and found that i have bacteria in my stomach so the diarrhea but honestly i’ve offically lost respect for drs. They are just a bunch of idi*ts.
so now my period are still missing, i might go see some TCM drs if it still doesn’t come this december.
anyway i just hope that you ladies feel better to know that you are not alone.

(221) ak says:

Im 16 and from the time when I started my period around 11 years old it had been pretty irregular up until a while ago when it started to regulate. i know periods are usually irregular when girls start but isnt it supposed to be regular after a couple years or so? I havent had it this month and i have a feeling im not gonna get it for a while, im not sexually active at all so i know its nothing to do with that.

my sister does have a problem with her ovaries though and she doesnt get her period. do you think this could be genetic? My mom doesnt have anything and i dont think my grandma had anything like this either. Im a little worried i might have the same thing my sister has, i dont have any weight gain or emotional effects (unless im not noticing them), what do you think it could be?

I’m ’bout having the same problem also… I’m 23 and my last period was in October meaning I haven’t had one for 4 months. It happened before also but it only lasted for only 3 months. The thing is, I’m not on pill and I’m not having sex at all. (I don’t have a boyfriend)…

I was hoping to get my period when we were on vacation since my family and I went somewhere internationally for a month, but it never came last month. I was also sleeping irregularly and basically eating a lot also when we were on vacation ’cause of the time difference and the prices were cheap where we went!

But now I’m back home, I returned to my normal routine but no period. So I’m not sure what’s going on… please help! Also this irregular period started before we went on vacation so I’m not sure…

Hi,
I’m 12 and got my period once in March when I was 10. It hasn’t shown up at all since. Is something wrong?? I’ve been waiting patiently, but am really concerned. I am obviously not pregnant as I am a complete and holy virgin. It seems like once a month I get the symptoms of my period like cramps and other pms, but there isn’t even a slight spotting. I’ve been to several doctors, not specifically about, but they just brush it off like it’s nothing. Can anybody help??? My friends say that I am lucky, but I feel like an outcast. I want to have children and my watching I didn’t know i was pregnant doesnt help. If any body has any ideas please tell me

I had two short periods and the third never came. I had my last period July ’10, went to the Dr he gave me some pills to jump start in Oct. It came for a day and nothing since then.. we are ready for another baby.. but Idk what to do anymore. I’m not done having kids. I’m too young!!

I am 20 years old and haven’t had a regular period in over two years. I can go three months and have a period every month then go another six with nothing. There is no way I am pregnant, just trust me on that, and I experience absolutely no pain what so ever. I went to the doctor and have had blood tests and all that came back was I had high cholesterol. I was put on the pill and took that for two months but it made me cramp really really bad and made me the meanest person ever! So I stopped taking it. I think I have had maybe 4 periods since then and that was over a year ago. I don’t feel any pain at all, I bloat a little bit when that time comes around but thats about it, I don’t stress to god awful much, so I couldn’t tell you what’s wrong. Anybody got anything for me?

(238) ambitious30 says:

Hello everyone, I’m 30 years old and I haven’t had a period in 1 year. It started for me four years ago. I was trying to lose weight for my wedding but I couldn’t never understand why I was always bloated. I felt uncomfortable all the time. Three months went by and no cycle. I finally said enough and went to my doctor, as some of you already mention she put me on a medication. It had me feeling so sick that I stopped taking it. I started to have nose bleeds. Few months went by and still no cycle. Got married and still no cycle. So I went back to the doctor but a different one this time. He recommended a specialist (OBGYN) this time. The doctor said everything looked good to him. So after about six months I had a cycle. Then two weeks passed and I am still bleeding. I bleed for about three months but I said enough (you think)!! Went to my regular doctor and he put me on some pills, saying that it would stop the bleeding. I went to work the next day and while I was in my classroom sitting at my desk I felt really uncomfortable down there. I went to the bathroom to change. Went back into the classroom and stayed there about 10 minutes then had to go back to the bathroom. The blood was running like a faucet. I left work immediately and went to the clinic. I told the doctor that I was still bleeding, then he said,”The medication was to stop the bleeding.” I’m like I know this already. He suggest that I have surgery immediately. He suggested that I have a Hysterectomy but my husband wasn’t happy about that. The second option was to do a DNC but remember I never was pregnant or did I have a miscarriage. So he did a DNC in March of 2010. I had a cycle in April but haven’t seen one since then. I know something is not right but going to the doctor makes me feel as if I’m a experiment. Give her this medication no, this one, oh no lets cut on her. It has been four long years. My husband and I really want a child now but it seems hopeless. Any suggestions!

Hey, I’m Madison, and I’m 15 years old. I had my first 4 periods normally, and then they just stopped for 10 months. So I went to my OBGYN and they prescribed Provera to give it a “kickstart.” But then my blood results came back and apparently i have hypothyroidism (which is weird, because i have no symptoms, at allllllll) So now I’m still waiting to see if i can actually get my period finally!

Hey I’m 18 and I’ve always had an irregular period that came between two and four months. I now haven’t had my period in over six months. This is the longest it’s ever been. In January me and my boyfriend had a condom fail so I took the plan b pill that night. Three days later I got my period that was normal and lasted it’s normal time. I haven’t had one since. Ive taken two pregnancy tests and they both came back negative. I’m not comfortable going to the gynecologist about it though. Anyone have advice or thoughts?

Hi,
I’m 16 years old and as embarrassing as this is I haven’t had my period in years. I got it when I was 13 or 14 and had it for a week. I missed the next month, and thought that my body was just getting adjusted to it. However, after a few years I didn’t know what was happening. It’s been a few years, and I’ve kind of just accepted it, too self-conscious to tell anyone including my mom. However, I’m still worried. I doubt I have a thyroid problem and I’m not on the pill. Any answers? Also does this mean I will be unable to have kids in the future?

I have always as long as i can remember had irregular periods one doctor says i weight to much another doctor says hormones but when the blood tests are done levels are fine i loose the weigh and still no periods i have gone two years without a period i am 28 yrs old. my obgyn tells me that if a female doesnt have a period at elast every three months she needs to take a med to force a shedding of the lining because you are obsorbing to much hormones and can cause uterine cancer..

i tried provera and clomid that made me have forced period every month for 6 months insurance dont cover the cost so everyone knows if you take these expect to pay outta pocket… I stopped taking them in may. havent had a period since… i will have spotting a day or two to where there isnt even enough to wear a panty liner but i do anyways… I lost 30 lbs since june slowly i quit smoking and not i am having period cramps but still just a light spotty three days… There is no hope unless we have the money and time to get hundreds of tests done and still the dr will do what mine did and retire on you and then you have to go back and start all over with a new dr.. I gave up i am no longer trying to have children now i am working on me my physical and metal state… If i cant have kids then i want to at least be happy with the way i look all the time and the fertility meds fyi they make you gain weight so watch it and be careful….. i did birth control for one year to try and regulate me and all that did was make me have # periods a month so dr took me off those… good luck everyone

not to worry but def dnt sit back and wait. if it has been more than 60-90 days you could have anything from an STD to cervical cancer, or could just be caused by stress which is probably the most likely.. I found great and useful information on this site. Good luck to all!

I’m 42 and haven’t had a period for 3 months. I am clock work. I took 4 tests 2 + 2- then a blood test revealed I am not. My tummy is a little bloated and tender but my gyno says the thyroid is okay. My kids are 10 and 13. I had a tubal and got pregnant with my 10 yr old in a year.
I want a child, I want to know and they seem like it’s not a big deal. It’s my body and my life. !!!!!
I am healthy, exercise and am thin what’s my problem and why can’t they find it. Same Dr for 24 yrs and I pay cash. I thought medicine was further that this.

(263) Suzuka says:

I’m only 22 years old and as of late, haven’t had a period since july/aug. 3 months later. I’m looking over this stuff, and thinking back on things i’ve heard before. Everyone should get checked out by a doctor, but if you’re like me, that won’t be happening anytime soon. but here are a few causes I’ve heard of in the last few years that aren’t normally discussed:

1) ‘normal’ irregular period

2) hormonal or stress problems

3) other physical problems (cysts, etc.)

4) early sexual attaivities (and yes, as weird as it sounds, starting sexual stuff at a too early age can interfer with the devolopment of your reproductive system)

5) too much sexaul play (another wierd one, but some women who play too much can cause damage to themselves, especailly with certain ‘toys’, when used too much to the point it hurts. espcially when too young)

6) Infections (regular infections to uncleand toys can cause inside damge)

7) Infertal (some girls are born that way, and it’s not normal for them to get periods. Although certain medicines can be taken to force periods)

Now please don’t just dimiss everything above just because some can’t be proven to you. For myself, i don’t know my specific reasons. I have periods, but can go 2-4 months at a time without them, have never been pregnant (although have worried at times). This has been going on for 8 years now, and so far, nothing wrong that i can tell. But again, for those of you who can get to a doctor, their exams would be more helpful than me.

See I haven’t had one since before my daughter was born Dec. 2009, had some bleeding after her birth and was immediatly put on the shot then this aug 2 2011 I stopped the shot just to see if I could have one, well its almost december and no such luck, it would really break my heart if i couldnt give my daughter atleast one sibling, I am 26 and in my prime, I dont understand it, all the women in my family get pregnant by looking at a guy, seriously i have 10 siblings lol I got the baby fever and am afraid i cant have anymore, it took us 2 1/2 years to have our first after 2 miscarriages and during that time I was irregurlar too but only a couple months would go by, i used to be as regular as clock work before i became sexually active at the age of 21. wish i knew what was wrong with this body of mine, I wish it would just give me one more, but I am grateful for my beautiful daughter, i have met some people who didnt make it that far and my heart hurts for them because there is nothing like being a momma.
