You are having amenorrhea, or a lack of menstrual periods.

Can you give us a few more specifics about your situation?

You say you haven't had a period in more than a year, correct?

Are you extremely overweight or underweight?

Do you have any other medical conditions?

Have you seen a doctor about your lack of periods?

Are you on birth control pills? Can you tell us all of the medications you are on?

Are you breastfeeding a child?

Have you ever had your thyroid looked at?

Do you exercise a lot?

Have you had children? Uterine fibroids? Endometriosis?

If you'll get back to us and answer these questions we'll do a much better job of helping you figure out what might be going on.

I'm confused by the information in your question, but hopefully this will help:

1. If you have had periods AFTER you had sex, than you are not pregnant. It is the absence of a period that can indicate a pregnancy. It does not matter if your period is different from one cycle to the next (lighter, heavier, longer cycle, shorter cycle), but if you are having a period, you are not pregnant from the previous sexual "encounter".

2. Anytime you have unprotected sex, you have a risk of pregnancy. The more times you have unprotected sex (not using a condom), your risk increases.

I hope you do not continue chancing fate with having unprotected sex, if you are not ready for the possibility of being pregnant. We can help you find a good type of birth control for you, so you do not worry each time if you are pregnant or not!

I noticed that another EmpowHer guide was able to answer this question at this discussion thread: Can I Be Pregnant; Please Help Me.

I wanted to let you know that menstrual bleeding is not an indicator of a viable pregnancy. A sign of pregnancy is actually the absence of bleeding, so as Diane said...your abnormal periods are caused by something else.

Since you have had three periods in one month, this is considered "abnormal bleeding" which is common for many women, but does need to be checked out by your gynecologist or family doctor. Since you are 17 years old, your family doctor can refer you to a specialist (a gynecologist) to perform an exam to make sure everything is working okay.

Let us know if you need any help with finding a doctor, or if you would like more information at what to expect at the doctor's office!

Also..going to the gynecologist is helpful, since you are having unprotected sex with your boyfriend and absolutely do not want to be pregnant...your doctor can talk with you about your options to have protected sex, so you won't worry about your chances of pregnancy in the future. That would be a relief, right?!
