Thyroid difficulties. If you don't have a period for > 3 months, it's time to see a gynecologist.

Abnormal bleeding: Are you on the pill? If yes, low dose pills (low estrogen) sometimes don't allow your lining to become thick enough to bleed. This can throw things off. If you are not on the pill, stress and other medication could cause you to skip. Pregnancy is always a possibility, so get a test. ...Read more

Not normal but...: While not exactly "normal", it's not that unusual. Most women miss a period from time to time; stress ; malnutrition can cause this.
Exercise is one of the best ways to reduce stress. Please stop smoking asap- that contributes to poor health. Try to eat better but also take a good multivitamin.Herbs like rhodiola ; ashwagandha can reduce stress ; balance hormones. You body is saying need to change! ...Read more

A: A regular period occurs once every 24-35 days (3.5 to 5 weeks) and should last 7 days or less. The two most common reasons for abnormal cycles are abnormal hormone levels or problems with the uterus. In order to check your hormone levels, you should have a hormonal evaluation to look at your thyroid function (tsh/t4), ovarian function (fsh) on day 2-4 of your cycle, pituitary function (specifically prolactin) and your testosterone levels (to see if you have polycystic ovarian syndrome). If any of these are abnormal they can usually be treated with medication. In order to evaluate the uterus, the best test will be a sonohystogram (pelvic ultrasound with saline water infusion into the uterus). This will allow the doctor to "see" inside the uterus to see if you have any polyps (abnormal growths of uterine lining) or fibroids (non-cancerous tumors) that can be causing the bleeding. The ultrasound will also allow the doctor to check for large ovarian cysts or many small ovarian cysts (polycystic ovaries) which can lead to heavy or prolonged bleeding. If you have anemia due to heavy bleeding you may consider taking a multivitamin or iron tablets. You may consider seeing a reproductive endocrinologist to help resolve your bleeding issues.

Prolonged: Prolonged vaginal bleeding not related to your period is called dysfunctional uterine bleeding. Depending on your age, there are a variety of things that could be causing it such as a hormone imbalance, annovulation, pregnancy, pelvic inflammatory disease, uterine fibroids, trauma, menopause, inherited bleeding disorders, and rarely, cancer. You should contact your doctor for an evaluation. It's important that the cause of your bleeding be found in order to give you the proper treatment to stop it. Odds are, it's a hormone imbalance. You may need a different birth control pill to prevent the prolonged bleeding from happening again. Good luck! ...Read more

I missed my period for a month and when I got it I had more blood flow than usual and now am feel sick to my stomach. Is that normal with late periods?

Absolutely: When you skip a period, the inside lining of the uterus builds up. And in that extra time is grows thicker and so when you finally get your period it can be 2-3x more heavy. And with extra bleeding comes more pain. But if there is any chance of being pregnant it is important to c heck ...Read more
