I had unprotected intercourse in December. I had urinalysis first week of January and found out that I have Pyuria. I had my period in the 2nd week of January, it was 5-day menstruation. But I haven't had my menstruation in February and until this month, March. I do not sleep at night, only in daytime and 9 hours I am facing a computer. I am asking what probably is my problem.

Hi May,

All the information you provided in response to Diane’s questions would suggest that due to your recent life changes, you are experiencing missed periods which are common. Your body is adjusting to sleeping during the day instead of night time which can be extremely stressful on the body and could cause missed periods.

The pains in your abdomen sound like menstrual cramping. If you are not experiencing abnormal pains in the abdomen area, you should be fine. After answering your questions posed by Diane, I will agree and say that you should not worry about your missed periods at this time. If you miss another period, go to your physician and explain to him/her what is going on and they may offer birth control pills for regulation of your period as your body transitions.

I hope this information settles your nerves. It would appear that due to the changes in your lifestyle, your body is just adjusting. Keep us posted.

Hi, May,

Welcome to EmpowHer. Let's see if we can help you figure out what's going on.

In terms of the unprotected intercourse in December, that should not be an issue since you had a normal period in January unless you believe you may have gotten an STD?

May I ask why you had urinalysis in January? Was it due to symptoms of the Pyuria? As you know, phyria is simply a urinary tract infection. I am assuming that the doctor gave you antibiotics for this, is that correct? Did it clear up and did you finish your antibiotics?

If I did the dates correctly, you basically skipped a period and are now to the point where you are about to skip two. Often women will be late on their periods or skip one for no apparent reason. But by the time you skip two periods, you may want to see a doctor. Your hormonal levels may be off or low, or the doctor may put you on birth control pills to help regulate your period.

Are you usually regular or irregular?

And did I read it right, you work a night shift on the computer and sleep during the day? How long have you been doing this?

Has anything changed in your life in the last two months? A new medication (or stopping a medication), a new source of stress, a big change in your diet or exercise pattern?

Have you had any abdominal pain or cramping?

Can you get back to us and answer some of these questions? It will help us know what to research for you.

I had urinalysis in JAnuary because it is an order of our company, all employess must undergo medical examinaton. I had UTI first week of January and I had completed my antibiotic treatment for one week.

I am usually irregular, there are times that it takes me 40-50 days before having my another menstruation. I have been in gravyard shift for two months now.And I am 17 years old.

Sometimes, I feel pain at my lower back and in right lower part of my abdomen or sometimes in my abdomen.
