Started new pill 3 months ago. Last month, had period for 2 weeks but light. Now this month I have not gotten my period. What is causing this?
Do not ignore: If you do not get somewhat regular periods, it will be difficult (not usually impossible) to conceive without help. That can be addressed when you are ready to have children.

Have not gotten my period this month (may)? Is this normal. Should I be worried. This never really happens. I am not stress or anything. HELP!!

I'm 36 yrs & my 3rd child is now 14 months. She was exclusively breastfed. She still nurses but not a ton. I still have not gotten my period. Normal?
Normal: This is quite normal, but also be aware you may be ovulating on and off if she is decreasing her nursing. That means there is a possibility of pregnancy. I would advise you at least check a pregnancy test if you are not using any other form of contraception. I never had a period between my first two children - became pregnant with #2 while still breastfeeding #1. Otherwise, not to worry. ...Read more
