Maybe they can check your hormone levels with a bloodtest?

 This is the information we use:

If you are not pregnant, other causes of missed or irregular periods include:

  • Excessive weight loss or gain. Although low body weight is a common cause of missed or irregular periods, obesity also can cause menstrual problems.

  • Increased exercise. Missed periods are common in endurance athletes.

  • Emotional stress.

  • Illness.

  • Travel.

  • Hormone problems. This may cause a change in the levels of the hormones that the body needs to support menstruation.

  • Breast-feeding. Many women do not resume regular periods until they have completed breast-feeding.

I know it is frustrating not having a clearcut reason, but whatever you do don’t go off and start treating yourself with suggestions from other Bees until you have had proper testing and a diagnosis.

No ethical health professional would diagnose or prescribe withoout examining you and doing the proper testing.

@NYMeetsPA:  You might be in the very early stages of pre-menopause. Not to alarm you since it can take years to go from pre-men to actual menopause. But what usually happens is the body doesnt produce the correct amount of progestrone and you get to be estrogen dominant. 

I would try using bio-identical progenstrone cream. I found the one that come premeasured work best. 

Here is an article, but do your own research.

It sounds like it could be a thyroid issue… I would go get a blood test to check your hormone levels and see what shows up.

Same thing happened to me, my doctor told me that once you come off birth control this happens often to women, and takes a year for your period to get back on track.  Has it been under a year since you stopped taking BC?

I’ve had… periods of irregularity with my periods since my teens. Sometimes I’ll be regular for almost a year, sometimes I’ll only have 4 or 5 periods a year. One doctor suggested PCOS when I was like 14 or 15, but I don’t think it was ever confirmed by tests. I’m a healthy weight, no hirsuteness, I don’t abuse drugs or smoke, no doctor has ever been concerned when I’ve told them my issue. They all seem to just chalk it up to stress/travel (mostly stress, since we’re all hysterical women, don’t you know).

I don’t have any advice for you, just camaraderie. Maybe periods aren’t as regular a thing for as many women as we think? My mom said she was the same way, and she still managed to have me.
