Post late

My last period was shortly before thanksgiving, the 25th or 26th i think it started. Wondering what factors could be playing into not having a period since then. I have been kind of sick lately, with Acid Reflux, GERD, a lot of nausea, and weight loss, could that cause a perioud to be almost a month late? or could it jsut be a skipped period? Is this unusal? I haven't skipped a period totally since the first 2 yrs I started. Whats up with this?

Not sure of your age or other factors,but...could you be pregnant?The symptoms you listed sounds like symptoms women experience when pregnant..Also been enough time for you to get an acurate result if you are pregnant..

There is a possibility that you could be pregnant, so do a test to make sure.

Are you stressed? If so, this can be a reason for missing periods. Also, if you have lost a significant amount of weight from your stomach problems, this could be another reason. If you lose a lot of weight and body fat, then your body will stop your periods as a protection mechanism.

FOrtunatly there is no way I am pregnant, I am 17 and still a virgin, never had any sort of sexual activity at all.
As for teh weight, i am 5.6 and used to be around 107-109 and dropped to 105 ish then to 102 to 103. Is that significant? Right now the dr told me to drink Ensure to gain some weight back but still no period. Ah why am I really complaining? LOL i guess its just that its so not normal and I have no idea when it is going to just pop up.

Carry on drinking the Ensure and try to chill out a little and given time, I am sure that your periods will return. If not, then go and get checked out by your doc.

I would see your doc stress can cause you to skip or be late and with my knowledge of Gerd the pain can cause stress. Try to relax and a hot bath always brought mine on. Still I would see a doc about the weight loss if your not trying to lose weight.
