I'm 32 years old and my periods have been regular since I was in my early 20s. I am not sexually active and haven't been sexually active for a few years now. My stress level is the same as it always has been, so that's nothing unusal. I'm not even cramping or feeling any lower back pain, which are the symptoms I usually get about 6 to 12 hours before I start menstrating. I'm not taking any medication aside from a multi-vitamin.
I've Googled causes of having missed periods with regard to not being pregnant. In one case, it can occur if a person is overweight. I'm 5'5" and 175lbs with 37% body fat. I was the same weight these past couple of months and I got my period at that time....so I don't think my weight is the reason for my missed period.
Another cause could be that I'm entering peri-menopause. I may buy that, but I'm only 32 years old and my mother was 48 years old when she hit menopause. So I think (hope) I'm not going through that.
Other articles stated that it could symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome or a sign of diabetes.
The articles I read stated to seek medical advise IF I miss my period 3 months in a row. I don't think I can wait it out that long. I usually get my period the 5th of every month. Even though I'm trying not too worry (I wasn't worried at all until I realized that it's been over 10 days since I was schedule to have it), it is in the back of my mind all the time.
Any thoughts on what's going on with my body?
