Question: 2 months no period, Blood test=not pregnant


 mydevotedlove - Tue Sep 23, 2008 7:06 pm

I've been on birth control since I was 13, and if I ever missed a day my period would start. I haven't taken my birth control in 2 months, and haven't had my period that long as well. I thought I may be pregnant but I got a blood test done and it came out negative. I don't know what else it could be. I know something is wrong, but I don't know what. Like I said, I would start my period if I even missed a day on my birth control. There has been no spotting, no nothing. Anyone have any ideas on what could be wrong?

User avatar Hello,
My guess is that you may not be ovulating. There are a number of conditions that can cause this and often it is just normal; only a concern if you are trying actively to conceive. PCOS is one possible cause. The entire endocrine system with many glands can affect your periods. Even stress, extreme exercise and being underweight can cause an absence of periods. If you continue to not menstruate, it would warrant a trip to the doctor but a couple of missed periods alone in the absence of pregnancy are probably nothing to worry about and they will likely resume. If not, see your doctor.

Best wishes.
