For years, i have been completely normal and on time when it has come to my periods. They have always started on time, give or take a day, regardless of whether or not i am on birth control. So far this year, i have not had ONE period. I have not have any indication of an approaching period (salt cravings, exhaustion- my usual pre-period symptoms).i brought this to the attention of my doctor who stated that it was normal for women my age to skip a period (I am 35). To me, this does not sound normal when it has NEVER happened to me before. I have taken a pregnancy test numerous times and they all come back negative. my husband and I did have sex on the 1st of January and on Christmas Day. My period was due on the 6th of January and the 2nd of February. Is it normal for a woman to quit cold turkey like that? My doctor suggested I try some meds to jump start my period, but I am not sure I should trust that, being that she hasnt even examined me. Any suggestions as to what may be causing this so that, when she finally does see me, I can give her some suggestions rather than listening to her reach out on blind faith as to what this may be? I just hate being assessed w/o being seen and told why this is happening to me, thanks in advance View Thread
