I haven't had a period in over a year.
But it's a little more complicated then that, I suppose. I'm mostly posting here because doctors don't have any answers for me, and neither does anyone I've ever talked to about this.
I got my first period when I was about 11, and my period was very regular (coming once a month, on the same day) for about two years. Then all of a sudden, it because extremely irregular. When I hadn't gotten my period for four months, my mom took me to the doctor for the first time. They took some tests, and couldn't find anything wrong with me. They suggested I go on birth control, but I had no desire to, if the irregularity wasn't hurting me.
I haven't had a regular period since. Most of the time, my period will disappear for about three months, and then I'll get one. Sometimes it stays away longer. To be clear, I don't feel any pain, even cramp pain. Sometimes around my 'time of the month', I'll have one day where tiny cramps come and go, but it's nothing at all serious. In fact, my cramps used to be downright lethal when my period was regular; when they became irregular, the pain greatly lessened.
Well, it's officially been over a year since my last period. Still no pain, and nothing else unusual at all. Just a lack of period. But a week ago or so, I started noticing trace amounts of blood on toilet paper when I wiped myself after urinating. At first I wondered if I was sick or something, but then I realized that may have been my period trying to come through... There was no blood in my underwear, only when I wiped. Then a couple of days later, suddenly this thick, brown mucus was found in my underwear. That happened for a couple of days, and now that's gone too.
I'm currently 22 years old, 5'6, and around 165 pounds. I'm not skinny, but I'm not overweight, either. I'm pretty medium sized. I'm active, but I'm not 'athletic'. My diet could be better, I don't eat very regularly, and sometimes I'm only eating one meal a day. I haven't recently lost or gained weight, (although lately I may have lost a little weight, but it wouldn't have been a huge loss, something like a couple of pounds...) and I don't have any notable medical conditions.
I've never been pregnant, and I never plan on being pregnant. I'm also not on any sort of birth control, or any other medications.
I would really like someone's help with this. It's been driving me crazy, and no doctor seems to be able to give me any answers. I would at least like to know what's going on with my body, and if perhaps there are others like me... I would also like to know if I'm sick or not.
Can anyone help?
