Since running again after an injury I have started having problems with my periods. Now i've not had one for 2 months and its really starting to stress me out. I'm definitely not pregnant and just wondered if anyone else has experienced this type of problem because i'm really not sure what to do and i wondered if its something that will just correct itself as my body adjusts to running again
Thanks ladies xxx
That's interesting, as I've had the same problem and the docs can't find out why. My hormone levels are all normal (been checked twice) and I've had an internal scan which was fine.
I had the problem for just over a year. I would have 3 normal cycles then have one where I was always 2 months late and would have a horrendous, nagging toothache like pain in my ovaries until I finally got my period. The problem started when I started to take my running a bit more seriously about 18 months ago and started running more regulalry and built up to a half marathon.
Sod's law......as soon as the doctor booked me in for a scan at the hospital things went back to normal of their own acccord. They never did get to the bottom of it......but, touch wood, I haven't missed any since last October, although I do occasionally get the toothachey pain.
Sorry that doesn't tell you what it is, but at least you know it's not just you .
Might be worth you going to the docs to get checked out though, if only for piece of mind.
There are lots of reasons for irregular cycles, are you underweight, young, old?
well been to see doc this morning and he did say that starting up exercise etc can cause delays etc, but he has decided to send me to the hospital for tests to make sure as he thinks has gone on too long with not having one at all.
hope yours all sort themselves out soon
