Question Two missed Periods - Not Pregnant

I have missed two periods, this week is the second month that I did not have one.
The months before, my period kept getting lighter and lighter.

After I missed my period last month, a week and a half after my missed period, I took 2 home tests. Both were negative.

Any idea what could be causing this?

I am on Lo-Ovral 28s.

Help!!!

If I were you, I would call my GYN for a blood pregnancy test, just to be sure that it wasn't a false negative. Some people stop getting periods while taking birth control. If this bothers you, you should talk to your doctor about it.

I took another test yesterday because I start a new pack of pills tomorrow. This would be my second missed period.
It was clearly negative again.

So that's three tests that agree.

I did have some bloodwork done with my PCP last week because he was worried about thyroid problems. I told him I had missed a period. When he did bloodwork everything was fine.

Stress or maybe some meds I am taking for depression could be causing it.

Re: Two missed Periods - Not Pregnant

Have you ever had an irregualr period? I am usually very irregualr even on birth control. I can sometimes go up to 6 months without getting a period and still not be pregnant.

I have had a mix between either really bad periods or very very lights ones.

I don't mind not having a period, but it still worries me.

Re: Two missed Periods - Not Pregnant

I had the some of the same problems. It's either I don't have a period for two months or I have them very two weeks. Thats even on the pill. I took 3 tests and they all came out neg.. But I don't trust the tests that much. Before I found out that I was pergo with my son, I took 4 tests and they all came out neg.. The fifth one was pos.. What a waste of money. This last time after the 3 tests I went to my doc to find out. And I wasn't. : ( I think I am going to change from the pill to the shot. I am just so sick of being on my period! or not having one at all! I am also on a lot of meds. I take cortef(a steroid), and I am sure that has something to do with it! I hop things get better!

My doctor did a blood test a week ago, which was three weeks after my first missed period. This was after I took two home test which were negative.
After missing my period again this month, I took another home test which was negative.

Do you think it's even possible I am pregnant?

I talked to him on thursday and he said it was negative.
I took another home test tonight and it appears to be negative as well.

I am thinking I am not.

Re: Two missed Periods - Not Pregnant

Hi when you have missed periods it for a reason, I missed my periods it started over a year ago , sometimes i would have 2 a month and sometimes i would miss for 3 months, all the doctors would say its stress?? i started to feel realy ill like i had a bad flu aa the time it got so bad i could not move, anyway I am trying to tell the story in short, down the line I got diagnosed with a underactive thyroid. I know you said that you have a your thyroid tested but this dors not mean that your thyroid is working at (A1) it could be droping, if you can get your results with ranges and post them, I will have a look its your TSH and your free t4 here in England we dont get a free t3 test. Iam missing periods now for the last 3 months and its come back I have a high prolactin ( google prolactin) hope this is of some help... Mandy
