I've skipped this period for certain, and I'm fairly sure I'm not pregnant (the last time I had sex was about a year ago, and all I have done since is fool around once or twice, as in handjobs etc- each time fairly careful not to contaminate...). My cycles are irregular, I've been plotting them on a calendar since Feb '10 and they look like this in terms of cycle length: 28, 29, 23, 31, 38, 25, 25, 27, 26, 28, 23 and now on 47. At which time I'm assuming I've skipped the entire thing. I'm still harbouring small pregnancy fears (only because in the past I have been completely consumed with grief and worry about the possibility, and any form of sexual activity makes me terrified) even while I know they are irrational- but I haven't worried myself enough to really make it change.
I haven't been abnormally stressed. I've put on a little bit of Chrissy weight but nothing out of the ordinary. I haven't travelled/exercised more than usual/eaten anything different/been sick. I do have highly irregular sleep patterns (frequently staying up until 4am getting work done before sleeping until 1pm or similar), but this hasn't changed. I'm not on the pill, I haven't taken the morning after pill or any sort of contraceptive at all. I do not take any antibiotics, or drugs (legal or illegal). I do drink wine, in a normal amount that hasn't really changed, I don't smoke. I am vegan, but I haven't changed my diet for a long time (several years) and I take all the necessary supplements. I'm 20 and I've been having my periods since I was 14- they have always been fairly irregular, painful and blah (I had an ultra sound for the pain I was having during highschool years, but they saw nothing wrong with me and just prescribed me stronger painkillers which I no longer feel the need to take). I missed my periods for several months at that age, but I have never skipped a period since.
I went through over the top PMS-ish symptoms, including terrible moodswings, before the skipped period and have had continually fairly awful skin (for me) since the symptoms, but I think it may also be the hot Australian summer weather. Or perhaps a hormonal problem? I'm suffering from occasional pains in my abdomen (I think this may be a combination of things though, and I'm prone to stomach pains) and have a couple of other aches and pains that I personally don't think are related.
While I'm trying to remain calm, it has me awfully freaked out. I don't really want to visit the doctor/ob gyn. Any idea as to what the hell might be going on? Anyone suffering from the same crap?
