Re: Why have I missed so many periods?
Menopause at such an early age is rare but possible. However, it sounds like your body is just having symptoms due to the birth control. It probably holds your periods back and that explains the cramps but no bleeding. The hotflashes are a part of the birth control and your hormones changing. It's like when a woman gets pregnant, she has hotflashes because her body isn't the same anymore. Our hormones change. I think you're fine but I also think if you're really bothered by the symptoms, talk to your doctor about changing your pills.
