What can do to get my period if I haven't had in a year?

See your doctor: That is really too long to go unless you have birth control on board. If not, you should see your doctor to induce a period. That first period may be a bad one though, so talk to your doctor first. ...Read more

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

What do I need to do to get my period regular? I only have one once a year, if that.

What do I need to do to get my period regular? I only have one once a year, if that.

You : You need to see your doctor for a work up of your amenorrhea (absent period). Lab tests including fsh, lh, tsh, and prolactin should be done to rule out a hormonal imbalance/issue. Depending on the results your doctor may start you on a birth control pill to regulate your cycle, or give you a hormone called Provera (medroxyprogesterone) for ten days or so to see if this stimulates bleeding. Your doctor will guide you through this process of uncovering why your cycles are absent. Best of luck. ...Read more

Abnormal periods: The answer to why women have abnormal periods can be tricky. Depending upon your age, you menstrual periods occurring two times per month is hormone balance related. However, there may be growths within the uterus that can lead to the same issue. We can evaluate hormone levels, and look inside the uterus with a telescope to obtain a tissue sample. ...Read more

Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone): It is not uncommon for some women to go as long as 18 months after stopping Depo before they start having a period. Since you only started menstruating 6 months ago, that would be when your count would start. It is not considered infertility until you have been trying to conceive for one year (and your periods are regular. If you are healthy, be patient and wait for your body to find its rythym ...Read more

17 year old girl & had sex on July 3 & 21 & very stressed thinking I wasn't going to get my period & then today I got it but very light than usual?

Stress after sex: Menstrual flow can normally vary from cycle to cycle. Rather than worry and stress yourself after the fact, consider practicing safe sex (always use condom ), and also get on some kind of oral contraceptive and you'll have nothing to worry or be stressed about in the future! ...Read more

If I have pcos and have my period like twice a year and take Clomid (clomiphene) will i get my period if i don't conceive this round?

If I have pcos and have my period like twice a year and take Clomid (clomiphene) will i get my period if i don't conceive this round?

Who knows?: There is no way to predict. Have you discussed metformin therapy with your doctor. In many women it reduces the Insulin resistance which causes pcos and can restore normal menses and even fertility in many women. Also diet, exercise and weight loss will help a lot. ...Read more

I have mirena (levonorgestrel) for 1 year and half now i used to get my period every month now im late 18 days i did 3 tests came back neg no symptoms just cramps?

Normal: I typically tell patients when i put in a Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud that it's common for some women to lose their period all together. The Progesterone in the iud causes the lining of the uterus to thin out so much that there's basically nothing to bleed from. Yea! so, nothing to worry about. It can be disconcerting, but it's completely normal. Best of luck! ...Read more

I was taking levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) for 10 years, 1 year ago I stopped & i'm yet to get my period.I've heard it takes time, but is this cause 4 concern? Not pregnant

I was taking levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) for 10 years, 1 year ago I stopped & i'm yet to get my period.I've heard it takes time, but is this cause 4 concern? Not pregnant

Could be: Not having a menstrual cycle after a year of stopping levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) seems abnormal unless you've reached menopause. If you are still pre-menopausal, your endometrial lining can overdevelop & put you at risk for hyperplasia or cancer. See your gyn for an evaluation which should consist of labs (tsh, fsh, upt, prolactin), pelvic ultrasound, & possible endometrial biopsy (emb). ...Read more

I had my first period at my late 16 and haven't get my second period for a year and 4 month. I'm 18. Is this normal?

I had my first period at my late 16 and haven't get my second period for a year and 4 month.  I'm 18. Is this normal?

Not likely normal: To start you periods at the age of 16, is a bit late. The average age for onset of menses is about 13 to 14, and most teens will have somewhat irregular periods for a while. If you were having even occasional monthly periods, i would not worry. However, since you are not having periods, you should see you doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more
