Gynecology

Missed period

05/10/2006

Question:

I missed my period this month should I be concerned? I am 21 years old, never had sex and my periods have been pretty regular and have never missed a period before. Thanks

Answer:

It is not uncommon for a woman to occasionally miss a period. If you continue to miss a period for another two months, or are missing periods on a regular basis, you should see your gynecologist.
