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

Do pregnancy test: If you skipped last period do a HPT. It's not unusual for women on oral contraceptives to miss a period or have some spotting. However, if your menstrual cycle remains abnormal over the next few months consult your physician to be sure there is no other condition
responsible for the change. ...Read more

Is it normal to miss 2 periods after you had your tubs tide its been 5 years that I tide them?

Probably unrelated: If one's tubes have been tied for 5 years, and menstrual periods have been regular since then, missing 2 periods now is probably unrelated to having had tubes tied. A primary care doctor and/or an ob-gyn doctor can evaluate to see if there is any problem now. A urine pregnancy test can be done to rule out a pregnancy. ...Read more

I never miss a period have one every month but they come on different days is that normal?

Yes: Looking at a calendar, it would be impossible for a woman to have her periods come on the same day each month UNLESS she had 31-day cycles for Jan Mar May Jul Aug Oct Dec, and 30-day cycles for Apr Jun Sep Nov, and then a 28-day cycle for Feb (29-days if a leap year). That means her cycles would have to match the same varying length as the month she is in... it doesn't happen like that in nature. ...Read more

What causes me to regularly go more than 35 days without a period and skip periods or have very late ones, I have normal thyriod and fsh levels.

Hormonal imbalance: 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.

I've had a regular period for a few years now, is it normal to randomly miss/be late? (not pregnant/no unusual changes to life) Just curious.

It is not unusual: There are many reasons that you can skip a period. An occasional missed period is not to be concerned about. However, if your period is irregular, other possibilities must be investigated including thyroid problems, polycystic ovaries, pregnancy or other hormonal abnormalities. ...Read more

After regularly having a period every month is it bad to miss it for the first time during the first month of taking birth control? Ign of pregnancy?

After regularly having a period every month is it bad to miss it for the first time during the first month of taking birth control? Ign of pregnancy?

Normal, not bad: Birth control can definitely affect your cycle, especially in the first few months you take it. If you miss a day or more, that can definitely throw off the cycle as well. Regular daily use should, over time, help regulate your cycle. I don't think you're pregnant if you haven't missed a pill, but a pregnancy test could confirm if you are. Give your body 3 months to adjust to new birth control. ...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

If I use sprintec continuously to skip periods how many periods should I plan on having for the year? Is 4 a year ok?

If I use sprintec continuously to skip periods how many periods should I plan on having for the year? Is 4 a year ok?

Should be fine: There isn't much evidence out there that states you absolutely have to have a certain amount of periods per year. Some women are on types of birth control where they never have periods while using it (Depo, sometimes progestin IUDs) or use continuous contraception like you and are fine with little to no bleeding. So yes, four a year is ok. ...Read more

Seek consultation: The most common reason for irregular periods is ovulatory dysfunction, which may be due to a variety of conditions - pcos, hypothalamic amenorrhea, thyroid disorder, hyperprolacitnemia, perimenopause or poor ovarian reserve, hyperandrogenism, etc. An evaluation therefore is the most important first step as the management of irregular menses and conceiving depends on the etiology. ...Read more

Why does my 19 year old daughter occasionally skip her period. She's healthy now but did go through chemo for 3 years between the age of 3-6 for all.?

Could be normal...or: This is not terribly unusual in a 19 yo. If she received gonadal irradiation, then her ovaries may be compromised leading to irregularities. Also, chemo may have the same effect. It's best to see an gynecological endocrinologist to straighten this out. ...Read more

Irregular periods: Irregular periods are usually a sign of absence of an ovulatory cycle if pregnancy and related problems have been ruled out by a quantitative HCG blood test. You would initially need to keep a menstrual calendar to see the trend of your periods. If its confirmed that the irregularity is persistent you would need a hormone panel, a sonogram and a uterine biopsy. ...Read more
