How long have you had your period? It's not unusual for women to have erratic (too frequent, or not frequent enough, or occurring at weird intervals) periods for their first 5 years. I could be wrong about this, but I have not known doxycycline to cause periods to stop.

Here are some common reasons for periods to stop, maybe one applies to you?
1. rapid weight loss
2. stress
3. heavy exercise

anyway, you need to tell your doctor what's up with your body. i also suggest telling your mother openly because if it looks like you're trying to hide something, your mom is going to be more likely to get suspicious of stuff.

¿Qué es el dealio?
