My period is late? -_- HELP

Thursday, February 28, 2013

I know im not pregnant its not possible I haven't been sexually active since last April . However my period hasn't come in 4 months . Don't get me wrong I love not having a period but yea I would like to have one to at least make me feel normal . And the tough thing is , is that when I finally have one its horrible , cramps,nausea and fever . It's like my body hates me for being normal. I began to become worried so I looked online to see what was wrong with me being that I haven't always been irregular . I saw an article that said "being overweight can make you not fertile" . It scares the living crap out of me . I'm a young 20 year old woman that cant have children at this point in my life? Granted im nowhere ready for a child . But it freaks me out that I may be UN fertile . I refuse to go to a Gynecologist because my mother would want to go and she would find out im not the "good girl" she thought I was it sounds cliche but its how I feel . I wanted to know if anyone on this site has or is going trough the same thing . If so Leave you'r input .

I take zoloft ( but I have been taking this for some while now)
Im a night owl and my schedule is out of control (can this be a contributer?)

    I've gone 3 months without a period before. Twice. It was because of my weight, 300 pounds, and the fact that I have PCOS. I know you don't want to see a doctor but perhaps you should. There could be another issue entirely that needs to be addressed. I do hope this helps and I wish you the best of luck.

    Sounds to me like maybe some birth control for regulating your period would be helpful. And you are an adult now and if you can drive yourself, then schedule a gynecology appointment. If your mom drives you, she waits in the waiting room. She should be able to accept and understand that. I have started to try and get my 15 year old son to go in and see the doctor by himself and we wait in the waiting room, but since he is under 18, they tend to call us back towards the end.

    Sometimes when your body is going through a shock to its system, it will stop mentruating. Your body will go back to normal when the shock wears off. Give yourself time. You are not infertile forever. You are losing weight and exercising, right? Your body needs time to adjust. Make sure you are eating right. Don't skip meals. Get enough rest. Give yourself time. If you don't have a normal period after about 6 months, then you should see your doctor. Even if you don't go to a gynecologist, see your own doctor about it. It could be something simple we just don't realize. Don't panic. Good luck!
