missed periods

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
i know this sounds weird but what do you do if you've missed a period and you're definitely not pregnant?

i didnt have one last month and its looking like not this month either, im usually pretty regular and it comes around the same date of every month so its very strange. i looked on the NHS website and it says dont bother going to the doctor until you've missed 3 (or something along those lines) so is it just normal to miss them sometimes? its just not normal for me and it feels weird. i had all the PMS symptoms and stomch ache etc but nada. do i just leave it?

    If it doesnt come next month then go to the docs but I'm sure its nothing, as you have had the usual signs of a period.

    Have you been under any high stress lately? Lost or gained weight, anything?

    I have missed 2 current;y, however I have been to the doctors. I had blood tests 3 weeks ago to check my thyroid, hormones, anemia and pregnancy etc. All came back ok, told me i was midway through a cycle, still haven't come on though. So I'm going back on Monday, they've told me i may have to have an ultrasound or a check up which by that I think they mean a smear tbh

    Goging to the gym, and losing weight both cause physiological stress.

    Well I went back today, got told that it currently isn't worth doing any further investigations as I don't have any symptoms or test results to show I may have anything considerably wrong with me. They mentioned polycystic ovaries, which has been mentioned in the past. So for now I guess i'll enjoy the break?

    I hope you got your period anywho!
