Hi so, firstly i am a late bloomer, i only have my period when im 17 (im 19 now).
I have went to lots of obgyn, had mri/ultrasound (?) and even endoscopy (through my anus as im a virgin), and had my hormone checked when i was about 15-16 and all the results said that i am perfectly fine except my uterine lining is very weak and thin!
So far ive only had my "natural" period for 4 times (the last one was in november 2013) and only had the next one in february '14 bc i took birth control pills. After i stopped my cycle stopped as well and again i had my "period" in july bc i took birth control once again.

Up till now i havent had my period again and didnt take any birthcontrol pill bc i was worried! More info, in late 2014 i went to an orthopedist bc my back started feeling painful (i had scoliosis as from bad posture). And out of curiousity, i asked if spine problem could affect cycles and my orthopaedist said it could most likely happen but idk?
And from all research that i did, it always said that unstable cycle could be caused by anxiety? (Ive always been very anxious esp socially) and stress (i feel pressured a lot but imnot sure if im even VERY stressed)

Hello and thank you for using EmpowHer,
I'd love to give you some information on the matter.
Not getting a period does not necessarily mean that something is terribly wrong. Sometimes it can simply mean that your body cannot sustain a menstrual cycle hormonally.
It is not an unhealthy condition. However, it can make pregnancy more difficult in the future.
If in the future, if you find it difficult to conceive there are many treatment options for you. In the mean time, as long as you are not experiencing sever pain or any other negative symptoms, you do not need any immediate treatment.
