I'm a 21 year old female and for the last month I have been really emotional. Pregnancy test is negative. Periods are irregular. What's wrong with me?
I am a forty year old female who has not had her period for three months. I have taken two pregnancy tests, both are negative. Should I seek medical advice from a gyn.
Yes,: Yes, a gynecologist is a good place to start. She can run basic bloodwork to screen for the most common conditions that cause a woman to skip her period - perimenopause/menopause and thyroid dysfunction. There are also less common (but easy to test for) conditions such as a benign (non-cancerous) tumor in the pituitary gland that releases prolactin. A gyn doctor can also assess you for other perimenopausal symptoms, such as disrupted sleep, low libido, vaginal dryness, or hot flashes. If you are not having any of these other symptoms, you could give it one more month to see if you have a normal period before getting further evaluation. ...Read more

Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.
