Looking for advice on what could be going on. I have no insurance for a doctor but hope to soon. I'm only 23 years old but have gone over a year and a half with no menstruation period. Pregnancy tests are always negative, no pain, no noticeable bloating, nothing like hot flashes or anything. I have a family history of female cancers but I had the shots to prevent it.

      You need to be seen by a Gynecologist. Shots don't take care of all kinds of cancer.

      Have your thyroid checked with an Endocrinologist

      Ask if they have a charity form for people with no insurance. You may still have to pay, but it will be a lot less.

      Get insurance and get a primary doctor so they can help you

        @sho I can't afford insurance. I have too many medical issues to work right now but hopefully my husband can get insurance through his job. Problem with that is they rarely cover preexisting conditions so it would just be pointless.

      I would go 9 months without one. I have pcos and a fibroid. I don't have insurance either. I got on something called healthy texas women im not sure if its other states have programs like that. Its part of medicaid or medicare and it helps pay for lady stuff dr apps. She ended up putting me on birth control. It has helped with the regularity.

        @Rissaroo32 I'm honestly not sure if we have anything in Tennessee like that. We have Medicare and such but no program that you just described has ever been mentioned by anyone.

      Kayla, is right excessive exercise will stop your period or if you aren’t eating enough. Go to see a gynecologist. Second Dr would be an Endocrinologist for hormones. Thyroid

      Are you exercising a lot? Are you eating a fairly normal amount? Has this happened before?

        @Kayla_K1989 I exercise when I'm able, I have a lot of physical pain so I'm limited on exercise. I have stomach issues that make it hard to eat very well but I eat what I can. It's not happened before.

      It could possibly be pcos or a thyroid hormone imbalance.

        @BohemianAngel I do have Hypothyroidism and they suspect PCOS but I can't afford to be tested.

          @EmilyG go to a clinic. Public hospitals have clinics on a sliding scale
