Question: Missing Periods!

 krazy10 - Wed Aug 11, 2004 10:27 pm

I am 15 years old and have had my period since december of 2002, so almost 2 years. I have skiped 6 months of my period. The last time I had it was in March and it was very light and lasted only a day. Its starting to worry me that something might be wrong. I know that periods can be irregular the 1st couple of years, but i don't know if my case is normal or not. Should i see a doctor about it or just keep waiting for my next period?

User avatar Dear Guest,

The first thing that the doctor is going to do is to test for pregnancy if you are seuxally active.

The periods don't tend to be irregular during the first two years only but for more than that in some cases.

If this continues to be a problem, i would recommend that you see your doctor, i can not tell you how long you should though, it is up to you.

i think that this is just hormonal imbalance during puberty.

Thank you very much for using our website and i hope that this information helped.
