Question: IRREGULAR period question

 shiny_delusion - Thu May 05, 2005 12:23 am

I don't normally get my period when I should, I seldom ever did. I started to get regular this past year, and I thought that it was finally straightening up, but now I am going on 3 months without my period. (I'm not on birthcontrol) I seem to be getting really moody, and I am getting really weird with my thoughts... I truely feel like I am losing my mind. Could this be related?

I don't mind not getting my period, and I don't want to go on birth control unless I have to because I will get a disease if I don't... Am I at risk for a disease by not getting my period?

User avatar Hi shiny_delusion,
Hormone dysfunction may cause moodiness etc. I would attribute this to be the cause. You didn't state your age but have you had any diagnostic studies to rule out disorders with the thyroid, diabetes, (any endocrine dysfuntion etc.?) Have you had an ultrasound to rule out gynecology disorders such as PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome). If you have not had any evaluative studies done, I would suggest that you inquire about these studies with your physician.
