What does this mean about my period?

I haven't had a period since March, skip it April and haven't had it this month yet. The day i would of been due for my period this month, had a little bit of period blood(only one wipe of it) in the morning and the same day in the afternoon i had spotting of light brown. I've seen my local doctor about this, not very helpful. I've took a pregnancy test, it showed negative. I've never had this before in my whole cycle. Could this have something to do with pregnancy even though the test showed negative? I'm very worried. Please help.

C, did your doctor due a pelvic exam? Was it normal?

If your weight gets too low, you can stop having a period. You said you were exercising heavily and lost weight, so I'm wondering if you are underweight? That can stop your cycle in its tracks.

As far as constipation, drink fluids, eat fiber like in vegetable and oatmeal, and walk a lot. That should help some. How is your diet?

I would definitely go back to the doctor if your symptoms don't change. Something is obviously going on with you. If it isn't pregnancy, it is important to figure out what it is. Is your doctor a gynecologist?

I hope you feel better soon.

Hi C Bear

I have some questions for you. I can understand your worry. How old are you? Are you using birth control? Have you had unprotected sex? I am also wondering if you saw a gynecologist. What did your doctor tell you about your problem?

I am also wondering about your general health. Have you recently lost a lot of weight or started exercising heavily? That can affect your cycle. Stress can as well, but you say you have always been regular and now a couple of months of irregularity including a missed period altogether seems like a lot for just stress. When did you take the pregnancy test?

If you can get back to us with more details, hopefully we can point you in the right direction. Thanks for writing.

Thank you for your reply, i'm 20 years old. I'm not using birth control and yes i've had unprotected sex. I took a pregnancy test myself about 2 weeks ago and had a pregnancy test done when i went to see my doctor(the same about 2 weeks ago). My doctor didn't say much just it could be stress and to come back in 2 months time if i still didn't have my period. In October(2009) last year i lost 10-15 kgs and i was exercising heavily. In the last week i've been feeling sick mostly at night and feeling a little dizzy, also i've been suffering from constipation. If you can help i'll appreciate that alot.
