Amenorrhea: Sounds like you haven't ovulated the last few months. You may be getting ready to have a really heavy bleed. I usually tell my patients don't go more than three months without a period. I would suggest you see a GYN for a work up and a provera (medroxyprogesterone) withdrawal. If you can't get into a GYN, see if your family physician can prescribe the provera (medroxyprogesterone). You may be in for heavy and/or prolonged bleeding.
