Do pregnancy test: First, do a pregnancy test. Follow the instructions on the box exactly and make sure the kit has not expired. If negative, see your doc to find out what may be going on. Thyroid hormone problems can affect menstruation and so you should be checked for that. If your pregnancy test is negative, see an OB doc.
