Missed Period (Definition)

A missed period is when you don't have a period at your normal time.

Started metformin for prediabetes & pcos. Had sex one time/first time. Missed period next month. Very light line on preg. Stick. Can it be false +?

Started metformin for prediabetes & pcos. Had sex one time/first time. Missed period next month. Very light line on preg. Stick. Can it be false +?

Can recheck in 1 wk: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more

Does metformin 500 cause missed periods? Was put on it for pcos but had regular cycles before tht. Was also diagnosed with hypothyroid but under control

Does metformin 500 cause missed periods? Was put on it for pcos but had regular cycles before tht. Was also diagnosed with hypothyroid but under control

No!: I have never seen metformin interrupt menses. However, the underlying metabolic syndrome, causing pcos may have gotten worse. Also, a low thyroid which you had causes excessive periods and bleeding. Correcting this may have given the impression that your menses were normal. Finally, if you are over treated with thyroid-you will be amennorheac. ...Read more

Currently on normoz, metformin 850 & folvite (folic acid). missed periods its 9 days date I had sex during ovulation. I don't have any preg symp, can I get pregnant?

Currently on normoz, metformin 850 & folvite (folic acid). missed periods its 9 days date I had sex during ovulation. I don't have any preg symp, can I get pregnant?

Hard to tell: If a woman ovulates, and has no other gynecologic or fertility problems, then she "can" get pregnant. But, it can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred). ...Read more

"Miracle" Metformin: Metformin has been a "miracle" Rx for PCOS since its inception as it has reduced insulin secretions and reduced multiple ovarian cystic formation facilitating ovulation. However, as good as the drug is, periods can still be irregular and be missed on occasion. ...Read more

I have pcos. I'm on 500mg metformin and 100mcg levothyroxine. Can missing doses of my meds cause me to miss my period?

I have pcos. I'm on 500mg metformin and 100mcg levothyroxine. Can missing doses of my meds cause me to miss my period?

Yes: You likely have to miss more than 1 or 2 pills to cause you to miss your period. Women with pcos often miss periods, though and these medications aren't meant or intended to regulate your periods. At 23, if you're not trying to conceive and if you miss periods, you should be on birth control to help prevent pre-cancer of the uterus. Women with pcos = higher estrogen. ...Read more

On ginette 35 and metformin... Missed my period 2 mnths in a row... Am I pregenf. Breast tender back hurts and very very sleepy... Please help?

Ginette 35: Your low dose bcp is effective unless you miss taking an active pill after the placebo week. Your symptoms might mean pregnancy, so get a serum HCG test to make sure you are not. In general, take the low dose pills the same time each evening, and start a new pack on day five of the placebo pills (not day eight). This will insure you do not ovulate. ...Read more
