I'm 16 and I literally haven't had my period since April. The last time I had it I had a really really heavy flow and extremely painful cramps. But I'm still really worried about this. I'm sexually active but I have already 100% confirmed that I'm not pregnant. I have anemia if that makes a difference?
Is this normal? Like should I go see a doctor? I don't wanna go embarass myself if its nothing.
hello. since you have anemia and your last period was really heavy, theres a chance it affected your period which made it skip. my advice is go to the doctor and make sure you really are not pregnant. but i doubt you are because if its been 3 months im pretty sure you wouldve had a belly by now. but go to the doctor and tell them whats been going on,most likely they will give you supplements specificly made for your anemia diagnosis
You should see a doctor, and between heavy, irregular periods and bad cramps, birth control might be a good option for you. Keep in mind that the first few years after getting your period, your period can be highly irregular. I remember going for 5 months at a time the first couple of years.
