  • No Period for 5 Months...

    Im a virgin. 24, and not pregnant. I've had irregular periods since i've started the menstrual cycle, usually skipping 2 months...but this is the first time in a long time, that i skipped 5..i have an appt(even though i dont want to go!) but does anyone know if it could be cysts, or an imbalance, or cancer? dont want cancer...

  • Well there is something called PCOS (Polly Cystic Overian Syndrom), and that is what this sounds like to me. It is when you have more than once cyst on your ovaris that causes irregular periods and the more cysts the less likely you are to even obtain a period. Dont worry the cyst is begni and can be taken care of easily. It doesnt sound like cancer to me. One other thing that I can think of off hand that this may be is a hormonal imbalance. Ask your doctor to check your T3 levels and your levels of TSH in your body to check for a thyroid dissorder. You may also want him to check your estrogen and progesterone levels in your body to see if they are off. Keep us up dated as to how your appointment goes. Hope I have eased your worry. (oh, something else is stress causes irregular periods and may even cause no period at all! Some times birth control may help to regualte, and it is good to take even if you are a virgin)
    Life is like play dough, you mold it into what you want.

    • Thank You. I will keep you updated for sure, I'm going tonight. The only reason why i dont think its PCOS is because i havent gained weight, or have more facial hair than normal lol...IDK Guess i'll find out soon enough!

            Lube definitely helps me! I love using it with sex toys and partners alike and always finds that it only enhances my experience!
