Go to see another doctor. Do you ever have pain like in your uterus? If could be the onset of endometriosis, which sucks. I think your doctor should be more concerned. Do you have alot of stress? Stress can take your period away. It looks like you have a baby in your picture. Has it been this way since you had your baby? It sounds really wierd to me.

If you are concerned then you should go back to your Dr. Make sure the Dr is very clear about when you started not getting your period, for example, was it ever since you gave birth? Or did you have a couple of periods and then it stopped? If you haven't had your period for a while, and then you start getting it again, it probably won't be regular for a while so don't panic if you miss one. But if it starts happening more often then definitely talk to your Dr about your concerns. Has the Dr done any blood tests or anything to try and find out why you stopped getting your period? If you keep having problems then maybe they would consider doing an ultrasound (to check for cysts on your ovaries) or a laproscopy (to check for endometriosis). All the best - I hope you are happy and healthy! Don't panic about having an irregular period, but if you are even a slight bit worried then don't hesitate to get it checked out.

My period has always been messed up, ever since I first got my period. I would go months and months without having one. I have to say I didn't mind at all =) It can be a sign of things wrong, but I got checked out from my doctor and I am just weird in thet way, my period not being regular. But when I tried to get pregnant for the second time I had trouble because I wasn't ovulation, but I took some meds to make me ovulate and I didn't have any problems after that. Although after having two kids my period is a little more normal, but still I don't get it every month like most women do. If it concerns you I think you should go to a different doctor if you can and have them run some tests to try and find out what is causing it.
