Where have my periods gone?

Can anybody suggest why I might have stopped having periods? I am 100% definitely not pregnant, just to rule out the obvious. I came off the Clairette pill six or seven months ago, had one period as normal the first month after stopping, and then haven't had another one since. I haven't been particularly stressed and I'm not underweight, which are the only other reasons I know of for periods randomly stopping. I'm only 21 so fairly sure there's no menopause involved! I keep thinking I should wait a bit longer to see if things return to normal on their own before I go to the doctor... how long can I realistically put this off for? blush TIA...

Sometimes the pill can have a hangover effect on your cycle, so that may be it, but 6 months seems a long time.
How are your iron levels? Low iron can be a reason sometimes too. You would need to get a blood test to find out though I suspect.

Agree re going to get blood tests to check
