i have not had my period for about 3 months. i'm 17 and have never had sex with a man. is there something wrong with me? i'm starting to worry that there is something wrong. it feels a little swollen inside and i don't know what it could be. there is no way i could be pregnant because of not having sex
does anyone know what it could be?

Do you have a family member who would provide a good recommendation, or do you have a friend who has been to the doctor? You can also call your regular doctor-- this would be a great place to start---and talk with the nurse/doctor there about what you should do. (They would have recommendations, and also be able to talk with you about your symptoms, since they have a history with you).

Absence of a period, called amenorrhea, can be from many causes in unpregnant women. It is defined by having previously menstruated on a regular basis, and then missing three or more periods in a row.

You can read more about the specific causes of Amenorrhea, but a few include: dramatic weight loss, an existing medical condition, lifestyle, emotional distress, hormonal irregularity, or medication.

It is important to call your family doctor or Gynecologist, so that you can discuss your specific condition and possible causes. Do you have a Gynecologist?
