Hormone: No period for 2 months in a person your age is usually pregnancy until proven otherwise. Once you have confirmed a negative pregnancy test, you will need an exam to really assess the symptoms. Your doctor will look for possible ovarian cyst, or other probable hormonal imbalance that might easily be remedied. By the way, any new food or supplements? Consider all over the counter meds or vitamins. ...Read more

Anovulatory cycles: Your description is very common - that of irregular, absent or delayed menses with symptoms that are consistent with the second half of a cycle (that occur when ovulation has finally occurred). So, I think that you ovulated and are now having normal cycle related symptoms. It is worth talking with your OB and also getting checked for a vaginal infection. ...Read more

Maybe not yet, 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). An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate, if there are persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

I had sex many times last week and was on the mini pill for this time but since I have had light brown spotting, tummy pains and sore breasts.?

Too soon to tell: I believe your question implies that you know that the mini-pill (progestin-only) is somewhat less effective than combination hormone BC pills...perhaps 90% effective vs. 99% effective. And it is also associated with more irregular bleeding. You can't know yet if sex last week resulted in pregnancy. Wait until your period is due, and then do a home pregnancy test. Continue condoms for STI prev. ...Read more
