Maybe you just have irregular periods?

This seems like a pretty bizzare leap to make… did you diagnose yourself via WebMD or Google? I’ve had irregular periods occasionally and I’m not sure if anything other than concern about being pregnant crossed my mind…

I mean obviously no one here can tell you if you have cancer or not, you need to go to a doctor if you’re really that worried.

My sister had ovarian cancer and her symptoms were: irregular cycle (really really irregular), back pain, loss of apetite/getting full quickly and weight loss.

Don’t get yourself all worked up. Just see a doc as soon as possible to put your mind at ease!

Do you have an annual appointment with a gynecologist? If you don’t have a history of abnormal paps I’m sure you’re fine.

@pictureaccount:  I HIGHLY doubt you have ovarian cancer. That seems like a very unlikely outcome from a few missed periods.

Going from one late or missed period to ovarian cancer is really extreme.

Stress, a chemical pregnancy (you can def get pregnant on the pill) that didn’t show a positive test, natural changes in your cycle, cysts/endo that hasn’t been diagnosed, etc are all much more likely.

Talk to your doctor.

If ovarian and/or breast cancer run in your family, it may be worth getting BRCA tested.

@pictureaccount:  I used to be on Loestrin and I would miss periods all the time. However, I never missed two in a row. I ended up switching to a generic version of Leostrin called Junel because my Loestrin was costing almost $40 a month. Now my BC is free! I really wouldn’t worry but if you still don’t get a period this month, I would visit the doctor. Your insurance should pay for a well visit once a year, even though you really only need a Pap smear every three years. You can still geta an exam without getting a Pap smear. Hopefully this helps a bit.
