  • Do you have a low iron count? If so than maybe you skipped it this month because you dont have enough Iron. Are you on birth control or recently stopped. Other than those 2 reasons I cant think of anything else.

  • This happened to me when I was younger. After running tests they found out that my hormone levels (specifically, prolactin) was high causing my body to think it was pregnant and also to mimic pregnancy (absence of period, tender breasts, etc). It can signal an often benign tumor on your pituatary gland and I had to have and MRI to rule it out. There was no tumor, so they put me on birth control pills for a year to straighten out my hormone levels. It evidently worked, haven't had problems since.
    Make sure they find out WHY you aren't having a period!

  • Lab tests can be wrong. It's always safest to eat and drink and live like you are pregnant until you know for sure.

    My mom's tests didn't show up until 5 months with me, then 4 month with my sibs.

    Diet and stress can cause missed periods. Some forms of BC can cause them.
