Hello Anonymous,

Polycystic ovary syndrome or (PCOS) may be the cause of your symptoms.

PCOS is a common hormonal disorder. In teenage girls, infrequent or absent menstruation is the signal of this condition.

Infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods, excess hair growth, acne and obesity can all occur in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.
Early diagnosis and treatment may reduce the risk of long term complications such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

Anonymous, does your mother know that you have not had a period since February? You should be evaluated by your physician to determine if you have PCOS.

Treatment focuses on management of individual concerns, such as regulating your menstrual cycle and reducing excessive hair growth.

EmpowHER has a Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Home Page.

I hope you find some information on this page that will be helpful.

We'll I did tell my mom I haven't had my period in 3+ Months but she said not to worry too much about it and to my knowledge still hasn't scheduled some kind of appointment probably because my mom is unemployed and were in a financial situation plus I have ADHD and I'm autistic and we're barely able to keep up with the regular bills and my medications
