I'm pretty sure (my memory isn't the best haha!) the last time I had my period was early August so 3 months ago, but it was literally a very small amount and only lasted like 1 hour.

I'm a healthy 16 year old, have never been sexually active and don't have any medical conditions. The only reason I can think of as a cause is possibly that I have lost a bit of weight - since the start of 2021 I've done more regular exercise like 30 minute sessions on weekdays, and I've not eaten junk food or sweets regularly other than very occasionally or at parties etc. I've lost 4-5kg since the start of the year, but I wouldn't consider that as sudden. Should I be worried, or has anyone else experienced this before? Thanks

Hello! Sometimes periods can take a while before they regulate themselves, however, if you feel concerned about this, then theres no harm in checking in with your doctor just to double check that everything is alright, as they will be the ones who will be able to tell you for sure
It could also be due to stress, if you have been dealing with a heavy amount of that lately?

hey! just wanted to let you know that I'm in an extremely similar posititon haha, I think I've had my period maybe four or five times in the last 2 years? I went to see my doctor about it and was diagnosed with PCOS. I'm certainly not saying that you have this same condition, but it's worth considering there might be a logical explanation to the problem. but sometimes, periods are just irregular!! as long as you're eating right and sleeping right then I really wouldn't worry too much. if this issue persists, you can always go see your doctor. hope this helps!!
