I haven’t had a period in 7 months but I still have symptoms of it coming each month (I.e. acne around when it should be due, stomach cramping and constipation and tiredness), it just never comes though. I am definitely not pregnant. I was talking about it to a friend who is a nurse the other day and when I said I was planning on seeing my gp, she said it’s not really a gp matter and that if there was anything wrong I wouldn’t be having symptoms of a period. I just wondering if anyone knows what it could be and also if you think it would be unreasonable to see a gp about it as it has been going on for 7 months now? Thank you

How old are you? If you're not menopause age it definitely is a GP matter!

How old are you OP? Could it be peri menopause? I would speak to your GP personally, get checked over.

Absolutely not unreasonable to go to the GP.

I'I not sure exactly where the nurse is coming from. It's not normal to miss a perird for this long, unless you are menopausal. It needs to be checked. Don't feel guilty for getting checked.

I'd see a GP.
With the best will in the world, unless shes a nurse specialist in gynae, she'll know diddley

Yep, definitely see GP.

Definitely appropriate to see a GP.

Thank you all so much for your replies! I’m glad that it wouldn’t be unreasonable as I am starting to worry now. My worry is that it’s premature ovarian failure as my sister has it- I haven’t had any symptoms (I.e. hot flushes) so I’m hoping it won’t be.

Yeah, this.

It would be extremely unusual to be POF at your age, Ella, though it must be worrying that your sister has it. In fact, this is another good reason to see your GP, as it is causing you anxiety. Don't feel guilty, get an appointment booked.
