Menstrual symptom question. Is every woman "allowed" to miss a period occasionally, say once a year?

Menstrual symptom question. Is every woman "allowed" to miss a period occasionally, say once a year?

Generally yes: In the absence of hormone usage, menstruation usually indicates that ovulation has occurred and Progesterone has been produced. Without any menses, no progersterone would be produced and women would be in a relatively unhealthy estrogen-only state. Missing up to several periods a year would still allow for enough Progesterone in the other cycles to oppose the estrogen. ...Read more

Is it possible for me to miss my menstrual cycle because of shingles? I've never missed any of my periods before

Pain Is Stressful...: Then I am happy you have never been under much stress before, leading a quiet, healthy, peaceful life. Or at least let's hope so. Because stress can fool with your hormones & then filter down to the ovary level & delay ovulation. Not in everybody, but maybe in you. Sure, it could be a coincidence & something else is happening. If so, after two months see your doc. And don't forget a pregnancy test ...Read more

As: As doctors, anytime a fertile, sexually active woman has an abnormally light or missed period, the first thing we do is rule out pregnancy. You can either take another home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period, so another negative test would help confirm that you are not pregnant. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come. Since your period is usually irregular, this makes it difficult to time fertility windows and know what a missed period means. Since you had an infection the last time you had these symptoms, you should probably be checked by your doctor either way. Good luck! ...Read more

I've never gotten my period all 12 months, I often miss 3 months. Should I be worried? I'm 19 and hispanic, does that factor my irregular mypenstrual cycle? Ever since my first period it's been like this.

I've never gotten my period all 12 months, I often miss 3 months. Should I be worried? I'm 19 and hispanic, does that factor my irregular mypenstrual cycle? Ever since my first period it's been like this.

It: It can be normal to have an irregular period for the first 2-3 years after you first start getting your period, but after that, it is considered abnormal. Often, not having a period can signal that you are not ovulating. Reasons for this include: stress, excessive dieting, excessive exercise, or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or polycystic ovarian syndrome. You should see your doctor to discuss. It is worth looking into now since not having a regular period can make it difficult to get pregnant later on if/when that becomes a concern. Good luck! ...Read more
