I haven't gotten my period for like two months now, and this is actually something that happens pretty much every year, at some point during my cycle. I have been stressed about applying to college and doing entrance exams, as well as finishing my senior year, and other social stresses, my boyfriend and I have not had sex, or direct genital to genital contact, I always have underwear on. So I'm wondering if it's something I should be concerned about

Skipping periods now and then, especially when you are younger, is not that unusual and often is not about something being wrong.

But it is something you can check in with a reproductive healthcare provider about. Have you started getting yearly GYN exams yet? If so, who you see for that is who you can check in with about this to make sure there is no cause for concern.

If not, this could be a good time to start getting that care, so you can ask about this. [Smile]

Thank you so much for responding so quickly and for this site's existence! Truly I am so grateful from the bottom of my heart. I am 18, but like I said this has always been common for me, I bought two pregnancy tests to rest my mind, but I really don't think that's it since I feel absolutely normal and am confident that I had my underwear on every time my boyfriend and I did anything. I don't have a GYN right now, but I really would like to see one, I don't have a regular doctor right now but I think I was planning on going to my mom's doctor so would I talked to her about how to get a GYN?

In terms of getting a referral to a GYN, you can just ask any general doctor for that referral, stating you simply want to start getting that kind of healthcare, and asking them who they like to refer patients to for it.
