In need of woman's opinion
December 10, 2008 6:45am CST
I know I should have seen a doctor. But I like to hear if someone else had experiences like me. I want to gather some strength before I'll do my check up. I did not get my period/ menses since October and I am not pregnant. Usually I have my menses as usual. I also did not feel any irregular feelings physically. Is this a sign of cervical Cancer? Help me.

Umm, I would take another test. And if it's a DEFINITE negative, then you should go to the doctor. I don't think you have cancer though. I have had cervical cancer and it didn't effect my periods at all. Many things cause a woman to bleed more or less or not at all. Stress is a major one. Have you recently started birth control? Some birthcontrols, like the 'depo' shot can cause you to go more than a year without a period. Stay calm. If you have been thinking that you might be pregnant, that can cause you to miss periods also. You kind of 'trick' your body into thinking it's pregnant. It's weird, but it happens.

Come to think of it. I do. I am so excited when I did not get my menses. So I kept thinking that I am pregnant. What's more I am under so much stress lately. Thank you. Having this problem made me realize that I should change my lifestyle. Thank you for sharing your experiences. Thank you so much.
