Hello to everyone!-

My periods have always been irregular and about a year ago I was taking Seasonale. The pills gave me headaches so I stopped taking them. Anyway, I haven't gotten my period for over 2 months now. I had protected sex on August 15th. And after about a month and a half of not having my period, I took a pregnancy test just to be on the safe side. It was negative. That was almost a month ago and I still haven't gotten my period. Should I buy another pregnancy test? What could be the reason(s) for not getting my period?

Thanks-
Jess

I am not sure exactly why you have not started your period. It could be the after effect of going off of Seasonele. But what I would do is see your gynecologist to see what is going on and maybe get another pregnancy test from them to double check. If you want a free pregnancy test you can go to a Planned Parenthood near by if you have one. They give them for free.

I stopped taking the Seasonale long enough ago to where it shouldn't be effecting my cycle anymore. I have talked to my mom about going to the doctor to see why my periods are so late, but she said I should just be thankful that I don't get it. As far as she knows, I'm still a virgin...which I'm not. So she doesn't see any reason why I should go. I almost bought another test today but decided that I would hold off another week.

Well...I went out and bought another pregnancy test. This one came out negative as well. So tomorrow morning I am going to make an appointment to see the doctor for an exam and probably birth control. I just don't understand why I wouldn't be getting my period?!? Is it possible that I am pregnant and the tests just aren't working?..twice??

Actually, there are a number of reasons why a non-pregnant woman may miss a period. Here is the Scarleteen article about it:

MIA or Dude, Where's My Period?

But, yes, having your period cease over several months is worth a visit to you GYN, if only to rule out serious health problems.
