Menopause: I assume you are refering by swollen breast and not bieng pregnant. Swollen breast during perimenopause is common and its due hormonal changes. However breast cancer occurs in 1 out of every 8 women. Please do mammography to rule out normal benign or malignant breast conditions. See your obgyn for follow up.

Not over-the-counter: A woman who was normal on her periods and then stopped having them, can be evaluated by an ob-gyn doctor to see if there is a problem. The doctor will likely repeat a pregnancy test. If a woman only missed one period, there may not be a problem. A primary care doctor can look for other medical problems that could stop one's periods. If no problems are found, the OB doctor can decide the next step.

Not yet: Many women may be late on occasion due to many reasons. As long as you have a negative pregnancy test, you can ride it out for 3 months. If no period after 3 months then see a doctor. If you have pain, seek help sooner! you may need to have your thyroid checked. Oh --and if you have discharge form your nipples--seek advice now.

Depends on various..: Depending on various factors, a woman can decide to get evaluated by her primary care doctor or her ob-gyn doctor, or decide to wait one more cycle. Women sometimes skip a period without any disorder. This presumes she has regular monthly cycles and no other symptoms are present. If worried about skipping a second period, she can get a repeat urine pregnancy test and an evaluation with her doctor.
