Excessive bloating and missed periods...

I am 17 years old, and I began having my period three years ago. However, I have not had a period in over four months. I am experiencing discomfort and bloating (an overall sensation of tightness in the lower abdominal region) as well as back pain and stiffness. I exercise regularly, drink water and eat well. Any ideas as to what could be going on?

Re: Excessive bloating and missed periods...

Are you on birth control? Have you been having any sexual intercourse? Did you take any pregnancy tests to see if you were pregnant? It also could be that you are irregular. Have you see seen a doctor for this problem? If not then it would be a good idea to do so.

No birth control and no possibility of pregnancy. But I'll check with my doc! Thank you.

Re: Excessive bloating and missed periods...

At your age Periods can be irregular. Are you on any medication for anything these past few months.
It might be a good idea to get checked for Anemia as this can have an effect on your periods.
It dosent sound anything to worry about but its a good idea to let your Dr decide that.
All the best, Solofelix. PS. What is your diet like !!...

Re: Excessive bloating and missed periods...

I'm on no significant medications, and my diet is primarily vegetarian with limited dairy. (I eat meat perhaps 5 times a year; fish I eat about 10 times a year.)
