I have not got my period in 3 months

Hello, my last menstrual was on Aug 19. I have not got it since. I did see the Dr and he prescribed me some pills that would make my period come down. It's a 10 day supply. I am all finished with the pills and i still have not got my period. I have taken pregnancy test and even had blood drawn. I don't know what else to do.

If you were my patient, I would advise you that it can sometimes take up to 2 weeks after finishing medroxyprogesterone acetate for it to work.  So, you may still have your period.  If you don't have it within 2 weeks of finishing, you should probably call your doctor back.  At that point, I would then do some blood work including prolactin, thyroid, fsh and lh levels.  I would also ask questions about weight loss and exercise. Stress can play a role in causing menstrual periods to stop temporarily too.
Good luck!
