no period in almost 7 months?

i haven't had my period in 6 months, it'll make 7 months in june. when i first started my period (in 5th grade..i'm 17 now) i was regular. it seemed like as i got older, my periods became more irregular. i have pale skin, and dark hair, and i'm a little bit hairy. i had a pap test done about a year ago to determine if i had cancer, pcos, etc, but nothing showed up. the doctor was going to check my ovaries (and of course, that requires the doctor to stick his finger up there) and i screamed, and told him i wasn't ready for that. he was fine with it. i'm a total 100% virgin, and i'm scared to death of having that done. about a month or two ago, there was a tiny bit of blood when i wiped myself, but after that nothing showed up. i'm about 5'1", and i weigh about 165-170 pounds. any suggestions on what's wrong, or what could be happening?

You're young enough, the pill may help. Please make sure you get that new shot for cervical cancer ( I wanna be one less) God bless

Re: no period in almost 7 months?

Hello Littlemissannie, I too was 17 when I started missing my periods, I was also a virgin but my mom and I knew something wasn't right, so we did go to the doctor and they put me on the pill. But I wasn't diagnosed with PCOS many years later when I was 23. I had a laparoscopy and ultrasound, I also had all the signs like excessive hair, was orverweight, my blood sugar and cholesterol were high and that's how I was diagnosed. I'm now 33 I pretty much have PCOS under control. I lost 20 pounds by dieting and exercise and have been taking Metformin everyday. I'm no longer on the pill because I'm married and I'm trying to get pregnant and I get my period every month.
I know it's scary to have the pap smear test, but it needs to be done. Your doctor can't really say that you have or don't have PCOS only with a pap test, so you should go to a good doctor and make all the necessary tests so you can be properly diagnosed. It might not even be PCOS, but it's always good to know what is going on with your body.
And like Hulahoney said, I also think it's a good idea to have the cervical cancer shot, I wish they had it back when I was younger and a virgin.
All the best to you honey.
