Occasionally Absent Period
Q: I have a little problem. I am 23 and for the past 3 months I have not had
my period. I am not pregnant either. Is this normal? Please help me- I'm really
Dr. Donnica: This is a very common problem called "oligomenorrhea."
If you're sure you're not pregnant, don't panic! You should see your gynecologist
and have an evaluation. For most women, this is nothing serious and for
women who do not care to become pregnant now, the "treatment" is usually
birth control pills.
