    I'm almost 100% certain that the cause is that I went on a diet and lost 1 stone and 4 pounds in about 3 and a half months
    however I now eat a lot some days and then try to be healthy on others but my period hasn't returned

    I feel stupid going to the doctors when I know the cause but I don't know how to get them back.
    would I have to regain all that weight because I really don't want to

    btw I'm 18, about 5 foot 7" in height and weigh about 8 stone and 8pounds so my BMI is about 18.9 which is in healthy range
    thank you!

    How do you know you're not pregnant? I mean, Mary only knew when the baby came out, so who knows?

    It could be due to changes of your diet i would advise you to see a doctor and they should be able to help. In the mean time take a pregnancy test just incase?

    You sound very stressed about not having a period and funny enough, stress is something which delays period. Also a change in diet.

    Just enjoy not having them whilst you can. If you can't be pregnant then what's the worry, you're free for a while

    4 months is quite a long time for your period to be messed up by. It's still totally possible that it's diet or stress or any of the usual culprits, but by this point it is worth booking to see your doctor just to be safe cos there are some more sinister causes and there can be issues that arise from not having your period.
    Btw you will not have to regain the weight to bring them back if that is the cause.
