The . The first thing you should do is take a pregnancy test. If it positive please make sure you are taking prenatal vitamins and schedule an appointment with your obstetrician. If you are not getting your cycles and your pregnancy test is negative, you may be anovulatory. This means that you are not releasing an egg from your ovary (ovulation) every month or the month in question. If you do not ovulate you may menstruate normally. It could be that your hormones are unbalanced. You may have your hormones evaluated by a gynecologist or a reproductive endocrinologist. There are 4 basic studies that may help you determine if there is a hormonal problem: fsh, tsh/t4, prl and testosterone. The fsh (follicle stimulating hormone) will check to see how your ovary is functioning and will determine if you are at risk for early menopause (high fsh) or physical/medical stress causing a lack of cycles (low fsh). Tsh/t4 (thyroid function tests) will check to see if you have a thyroid problem which can interfere with ovulation. Prl (prolactin) will check to see if the pituitary gland in your brain is producing too much prolactin, the hormone usually responsible for producing breast milk after pregnancy, which can prevent ovulation. Finally, elevated testosterone levels, often associated with polycystic ovarian syndrome, can interefere with cycles. A recent weight gain of more than 10 or 15 pounds can also lead to your cycles skipping. A pelvic ultrasound may be beneficial as well to see if you have a cyst or polycystic ovarian syndrome which can prevent cycles, and determine if the lining of the uterus is thick or thin which may give clues to the type of problem you are experiencing. If you are in your mid 40s or older you may be going through the menopausal transition and skipping cycles is expected.
