Anyone have a missed period for over two months and NOT be pregnant?

I know 100% sure I am not pregnant, but I have not had a period since October 2009. I was very stressed in October due to holiday's and family and such, but now am feeling better but no period. I suspected PCOS because I am over weight, but my gluclose levels are normal and I have no other symptoms. The only time this ever happened to me was when I had a miscarriage and I had to have a shot of progesterone to jump start my period so now, I am using progesterone cream and have been since January 2. Anyone ever had this happen to them?

  • I didn't have a period for like 3 months. I'm not really sure why, but my doctor perscribed me something (can't remember the name) and it helped me to start my period and then I was regular after that.

  • I get my period 3 or 4 times a year. Not pregnant, not stressed, both on and off the pill it doesn't matter which- the doctors don't see anything wrong with it. I personally think it's a little weird and it definitely was hard trying to predict when I could get pregnant, but even having a baby didn't make me regular! I also had a miscarriage with baby #1 and then they found I had very low progesterone levels.. so that might have something to do with it. What is this progesterone cream?

  • The progesterone cream that I'm currently using is called Meno-Ease or something like that. That's a new name and it's used by some women who are going through menopause but from what I read, a lot of women who are NOT pre menopausal or going through menopause use it. From what I read, a lot of them who have not had their period get their period 2 to 4 weeks after using the cream so I'm hoping that's what happens for me!

    Thanks for all of the answers! It makes me feel better that it's not only me. I haven't been on birth control for about 4 or 5 years now.

  • Yup I did frequently before my new birth control kicked in (now I don't get them at all). Mine would stop due to stress and then it would take about a month or 2 to get restarted after the stress died down.

  • My period is very irregular. Six months I might go every month (regular) and then suddenly it will be 3 months and nothing. I am not pregnant and not too much stress (notice I said not too much I have 3 kids under 5 that drive me nuts sometimes). My doctor say that is not that common but is nothing to worried about it (in my case anyway). So, i just wait until my next period :)

  • Last year, I went 6 months with no period. I knew I couldn't be pregnant, because I had a tubal ligation in 2005. Doctors said it was 2 things: 1. Hormones 2. Ovarian cysts. They swore birth control would fix me up, but I decided to let my body work itself out. It eventually did, but it was frustrating. best thing to do is talk to your doctor and decide what's best for you.

  • I have PCOS and was pleased to see that you were taking this into consideration. And the only thing that I want to throw out is that PCOS can lead to diabetes. So if it isn't staring you the face already loosing the weight really is important... I know it's hard.
