I'm so terrified- I missed my period last month and figured it was nothing, after 3 pregnancy tests ruled I wasn't pregnant. Then, this month my period is already 2 days late. I'm on Loestrin 24 and I often have very short, light periods- but I never miss them, or if I do, it's rare.
I'm really worried I could be going through menopause at age 23. I have no other symptoms- I guess night sweats, but I've always been that way, it's not a new thing. I'm going to see a gynecologist soon but I can't handle being this upset. I'm mostly concerned about my body changing shape- if I'm a pear now, will I stay a pear or will all my weight go to my abdomen? I don't think I could handle that happening so early in life.
Is there any treatment that will keep my body looking relatively similar to how it looks now?
There can be delayed periods once in a while because of various factors. This does not mean that you are in menopause. It could be stress or hormonal issues. To keep body in shape and to remain fit, a healthy diet and regular exercise will help.
Take care and good luck.
