Stress can affect your period and getting anxious about not getting your period certainly doesn’t help. Have you detected any signs of ovulation yet?

I had a very similar experience as you – I got off BC and got my period somewhat regularly for about 5 months then had a cycle that was almost 3 months long. I had a doctor’s appointment for something else and mentioned it and she tested my blood for various hormones which all game back normal. I think I was a week or so shy of 3 months at that point and she said 3 months is when she would normally advise patients to come in. She prescribed 7 days of Provera, after which I did get my period and I am now 20 days into that cycle, so I am still waiting to see if my body is getting itself back on track or not. I know it’s easier said than done, but try not to worry about it too much just yet and enjoy your wedding! I would contact your doctor if you still haven’t seen anything by the time you are back from your honeymoon if you are going.

It sounds like you might have PCOS or something else messing with your hormones – may as well call your doctor to find out.  It’s really not something to freak out about, most of the things that can cause issues are highly treatable and many are even curable. 

Also, if the doc confirms you’re not pregnant, you can ask them for a cycle of provera which is artificial progesterone and will trigger a cycle to get things moving again.  (It’s like $4 without insurance, so no worries if it’s covered or not) 

If it is PCOS, it’s not something to freak out about, there’s a lot of treatment options available that can help now and when you’re ready to try for a baby.  (I have PCOS and am due in after 2 cycles of fertility meds Jan!)

mjharri4:  Try not to freak out too much. Irregular cycles happen to a lot of women for various reasons or for no reason at all. My bloodwork all came back normal and I am at the tail end of a relatively normal (for me) first cycle after taking Provera. And if the bloodwork does reveal something, I hope it is something that can be easily treated. Good luck!

I know it’s hard, but the less stress the better. I know, horrible advice. Some bodies are just nuts. I went without a period for 3 months, and wasn’t on BC before that ever. My doctor had me do a vaginal ultrasound just to check things out.
