| | No Period for 9 months -- last period was Black, not Preg. (Please help)
This is for someone really close to me. When she was 15 or so, she went a year without her period, but eventually it recovered. Well, 9 motnhs ago, she went through a hard breakup, and she was literally crushed. Her period then was black. And she hasn't had a period since. She turns 20 next month.
I keep telling her to go to a GYN, Doctor, anything , and she won't do it. Too scared it means she'll no longer be able to have kids, too scared that she'll have cancer, just a bunch of paranoia. I've tried to research this, and the only thing I could find was that it was stress related. It makes sense, but I don't know if there's serious problems with this.
And thats why Im here. Is there any big problems that can come out of this? What possibly can I tell her to go through with going to the doctor? On one hand, she's scared of finding out something.. so scaring her into it may not work, but perhaps it's the only way. Maybe if I tell her there's nothing extremely serious, and should check it out for minor things.. but I'd need to know that's true. I've always sucked at lying to to her face and she not figuring it out it was a lie.
Please help. This is such a huge thing on my head. It's terrible knowing I can't help a friend.
