No period since August - what's up with that?!

Okay, so I haven't had a period since August 11th of `08. My son was born in June, so my doctor has ruled out it being delayed because of birth, since I clearly had one after he was born. I have been formula feeding him since he was 6 months old so the lack of period isn't due to breast feeding. I've taken close to a dozen tests between September and November and they all came back negative. My doctor has also given me urine tests in her office and even an ultrasound to be sure. WE'RE SO CONFUSED!

We want to start talking about birth control and we're leaning towards Mirena, but she wants me to have a period before getting it just to be completely sure that I'm not pregnant. That having been said, we can't seem to figure out why I haven't had a period in 5 months.

Anyone been through something similar to this? Any idea why my period hasn't shown in so long? And yes, I plan on taking another test in about 2 weeks when my son goes back for his check-up, but until that happens - I'd like to have something to go off of.

have you gained/lost alot of weight?? under any stress?? those are a few reasons other than possible hormone imbalance to cause no period.

No to both of those, so I have no idea.

I'm right there with ya. August 17th was my last one. I had a baby in January and have had 3 periods since. I don't have any tubes so there is no need for birth control. It's really frustrating though. I have PCOS so I figure that is my problem.

Here is a bump for the missing period. If you figure things out and do get the Mirena, that is an awesome choice.  have it and love it. You may quit having a period with the Mirena. I rarely have one.



They just paid me my first $75.00 check :)
