I have always had an irregular period and I haven't had mine in several months.

I am 14 years old, turning 15 in October and I am about to start high school. I haven't had my period in several months, I've actually lost count! I've read several stories like mine; haven't had sex, around the same age as me, ect. and what I've mostly seen is that it may just be my horomones. I am overweight and the last time I checked is was foot 5 and a half (not sure if that'll help....)

My grandmother knows about my very late period and has suggested seeing a doctor but I'm not quiet sure... Should we call the doctor and see if we can find out why I haven't had it or should I just remain calm and wait a bit longer? I'm not too worried as this might be a normal part of life and as such I feel I should just stay calm about it. I would very much like some advice back, please?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Anonymous,

This is not uncommon for your age since your body is just adjusting to womanhood but you should go and see your doctor. This happened to me when I was around 16 years old and the physician prescribed you medication to force your periods to start again and ever since, I have not had issues and I am in my middle 30s now. It is a pretty easy fix so make that appointment. 

Good luck,
