I am worried you are becoming malnourished. You need to stop that diet and see your doctor right away. You need a good medical workup including blood work and possibly X-rays. ...Read more

Not normal: No period for 4 months is not normal unless you are just starting to have periods, pregnant, or approaching menopause. This can be due to anovulation, thyroid disease, insulin resistance/diabetes, PCOS, adrenal disease, a pituitary tumor, stress, weight loss, diet, exercise, or some medications. You need to see your PCP or gynecologist for a full history, exam, and testing. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Last month i was diagnosed with mono&i've been dancing for an hour everyday since sept.I haven't had my period in 4 months, could these be the reasons?

Mono is unlikely to: be the cause. Your dancing might be, or if you've lost a significant amount weight, that could be the reason. Stress can also do this. Some women are never regular.... Obviously, it's important to test for pregnancy if that is a possibility. Then I would discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

I haven't had my period in 4 months but I'm a virgin. I have recently gotten cramping and occasional hot flashes. What is this?

A reason for an exam: Irregular periods - in your case, absent - is not necessarily dangerous but it is not normal and might indicate a problem you'd want to correct if possible. Ovary problems are a frequent cause and so are eating disorders. Have an exam and find out. Don't worry - but do know what's happening. Best wishes. ...Read more

There : There are lots of other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period such as: stress, illness, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or poly cystic ovarian syndrome. It is good that you went to see your doctor about this. If you are concerned about the effectiveness of the medication they put you on to regulate your period, then give your doctor a call. Depending on what you were given and what they suspect is going on, they will be able to give you more accurate answers about what to expect of your period over the next few weeks to months.

Abnormal cycles: Without a menstrual flow for 4 months can cause thickening of the uterine lining. When the lining becomes thick enough, then your menstrual flow can become heavy, prolonged and associated with more cramping. Of course, I would check to make sure you are not pregnant. ...Read more

Many causes: STDs usually cause too much bleeding rather than delayed periods. Stress,weight, exercise, diet, medications, and diseases such as thyroid disease,diabetes/insulin resistance, PCOS, adrenal disorders, and pituitary problems can all cause you to miss periods. The clinic probably tested for all of these,and you should have your answer soon. Best wishes. ...Read more
