ladies I am going to paste some information on this site at the end of my post. I am not by any means saying you are not pg and that there is not a possibility that you are, but it is very common for women to get at least one to two irregular periods within a years time even if they don't get a period at all it is still very normal. If you feel that you are pg take a pg test. if it comes up neg. and you still feel pg wait 3-4 days and test again and if you get more neg test and the next month you don't get your period again then GO TO YOUR DR. I understand what you are going through. I myself have not had my period since January 1st and have gotten all negative test results. I do have an appt. w/ my dr. and I WILL get some answers. I will update this exact board and question to let ALL of you know how it goes, but please if you are only a little bit late, meaning by less than a month, please do not freak out. If you stress about missing your period it can make it to where you don't get it for a really long time. Please don't stress. Ok? Causes of Irregular or Missed Cycles The number one cause of a skipped period is pregnancy. Regardless of whether you've had s_x, if you skipped a period, get a pregnancy test. If you're on oral contraceptives and have not missed a pill, the missed period is probably related to your dosage and can be remedied by adjusting the dosage. Another common cause of irregular or skipped periods is physical and emotional stress. One scenario is worrying that you might be pregnant and then actually missing your period because you're worried. Other stress-related situations revolve around career changes, job loss, a death in the family, going off to college, moving, exams, and stressful workloads. It's not really understood why stress can cause you to miss a cycle, but it is considered a protective mechanism, a sort of prehistoric parachute in the female body. The body senses the stress levels and somehow decides to stop ovulation for that month to prevent a "stressed" pregnancy. Overdieting and overexercising can also affect your cycle. For example, sudden weight loss could cause you to miss your period or cause a long bout of irregular cycles. Overexercising can also cause you to miss your period. It's not unusual for female athletes to stop menstruating when they're in training. Another cause of irregular cycles could be a thyroid disorder of some sort. The thyroid gland regulates your metabolism by secreting thyroid hormone. When the gland is overactive and secretes too much thyroid hormone, known as hyperthyroidism, or is underactive and doesn't secrete enough hormone, known as hypothyroidism, this can interfere with your ovulation cycle. Thyroid problems occur in about one in twenty women and can be easily remedied. Once your thyroid problem is treated, your periods will simply return to normal. Irregular cycles may be normal for your age. For example, it often takes young women several years before they establish a regular menstrual cycle, and some young women are put on oral contraceptives to regulate their periods. Women beyond forty can begin menopause at any time, and irregular cycles may be a sign of perimenopause. It's always a good idea to have a full pelvic and physical exam when you're experiencing irregular periods. There are a number of gynecological problems that can cause irregular bleeding, which are discussed throughout this book. You'll need to rule out "organic" causes, such as pregnancy, as well as hormonal causes and hypothalmic causes, in which things like stress and exercise interfere with your ovulation cycle.
