Post infrequent periods and stuff.

Im getting pretty worried about my infrequent periods. Sometimes i dont have a period for 5 or 6 months. Im wondering what could be wrong.. i dont eat the healtiest meals so i thought that could be the cause at one stage. I am 5'0 tall and 7st. But then my friend told me about her polycystic ovarian syndrome and when i looked it up a couple of things seemed to point to me. e.g facial hair. Im 19 years old and not on the pill or anything. Please tell me what you think.

Alot of things can disturb your period (the facial thing alot of girls have facial hair especially if you have dark hair) but eating, excersisng ive even heard of nerves and changes in environment can throw off your period. You really should go see your doctor though to make sure it isn't anything serious. GOOD LUCK!

Whether you have PCOS, or something else, or nothing at all, only your doctor can tell. An ultrasound and a hormone profile should be enough to detect if anything's wrong.

Irregular periods are actually quite normal in young women, just because you have very irregular periods doesn't mean you have anything phyiscally wrong. I'd suggest having a check up with your gyno, and then if everything checks out okay, you might want to consider going on birth control to regulate your periods.
