For peace of mind, give your doctor a call. He or she may ask you to come into the office to be evaluated.

If you have not had sex since your last normal period, it is unlikely that you are pregnant. Ruling out pregnancy as a reason for the missed period, you need to look other possibilities. May I ask how old you are? Sometimes, in the first few years that a young girl begins menstruation, periods can be irregular. Stress, dieting and excessive exercising can cause menstrual changes. If you continue to have really short periods, make an appointment with your doctor. The menstrual cycle is regulated by a complex interaction of hormones. Abnormalities in hormone levels can be the cause. This can easily be checked with a blood test. Try to relax.
