Question: I got my period last April ( one year ago). My period was like clockwork (very unusual for girls my age). Until December, the date of my last period. So I have skipped my period for 4 almost 5 months. I have started up gymnastics again but only go 2 times a week ,2 hours a day. I eat a lot, and actually have gained weight since december. Does anyone know what is going on? thanks, and God bless :) oh yeah, I am NOT pregnant I haven't even had my first kiss :)

Having irregular or missed periods can be caused by a number of things such as significant weight gain or loss (although low body weight is a common cause of missed or irregular periods, obesity also can cause menstrual problems), over-exercise, poor nutrition (or a diet too high in carbohydrates), smoking, certain medications, caffeine, excessive alcohol use (interfering with how the liver metabolizes estrogen and progesterone), eating disorders, increased stress, PCOS (Polycystic ovarian syndrome or estrogen dominance), uterine abnormalities such as fibroids, ovarian cysts, polyps, endometriosis and hormonal imbalances. I would recommend you consult with your doctor/gynaecologist for further evaluation to see what they think could be causing this if you have missed your period for more than two months. Good luck :)

I have been to the doctor for this myself. Turns out that you should be having your period at least once every three months. If not, you should go to the doctor and they will give you a medication to cause it to begin. Although it is common for women (especially younger) to have irregular cycles, you must shed the lining of your uterus to prevent a condition called endometriosis, which is painful and caused from a build up on your uterus. Sometimes weight fluctuations and added exercise cause hormonal changes which may throw your cycle off. Good luck and you should consider getting this checked out if it continues.

it might be considering that you weigh so little, if you're too thin, you do not ovulate after which would not have a interval. this will motive issues one day, so i might speak to a dietitian to peer in the event you must difference your consuming behavior. you might additionally simply be sporadic considering that you're younger and that i count on you have not had your interval for terribly lengthy. more commonly, issues like this paintings themselves out as you grow older. well success:)

Reasons for amenorrhea (lack of periods): 1. Pregnancy. Probably not an issue here! 2. STDs. Probably not an issue here! 3. Youth. After menarche (first period), some girls take several years to become regular. 4. Weight loss/gain of more than 10 pounds. This can affect your hormones. Even beginning a diet can affect your periods. 5. Stress. Even everyday stress can affect your menstrual cycle. Usually, however, the stress will be long-term. 6. Recent abortion/miscarriage. Not a factor here! 7. Medications. Any medication can potentially affect your menstrual cycle. 8. Recently-begun exercise programs. These can affect your menstrual cycle. 9. Using inexpensive tampons. These can fragment or even break off in the vagina, result in blocked blood flow; but this is usually accompanied by a foul odor. Fortunately, you've never had sex and date rape doesn't sound like a possibility here. That rules out any "sinister" causes for your amenorrhea. If you're still concerned you can of course see your physician. He/she can perform a FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) blood test to see if your hormone levels are, as another poster put it, "out of whack."
