I've been in a weird period cycle for a while.

Ever since March this year, I've had a very weird period, it's late or early or not coming at all. I'm not on the the pill, and was sexually active using condoms.

Finally in May after 3 months of it, I decided the weird period made too much stress, so I stopped having sex because I was too paranoid every month about being pregnant. But even since stopping, I haven't had a normal period.

In June I went to the Dr. and they did some thyroid tests and said I was normal, and that it was probably from stress, but before this I was normal to the day, and I have been way more stressed than this before.

Now it's almost October, and I haven't had my period since July 30th. I'm seeing the gyno again later this month, but I'm wondering if you have any advice of what things could cause this.

Pixledot: Have you had a chance to read our article MIA or Dude Where's My Period? yet? It explains a lot of reasons why periods can be missed. Do any of those apply to you? Are you up to date on STI screenings as you have been sexually active?
