Dd is 15 days after expected period day and.... no period 😕 have been fairly regular before give or take a few days... she had 1 weird shoe light period almost a year ago and dd reckons she’s been having hot flushes once or twice a day (although getting warmer and not taking blazer off = warmth) she’s also been having sore top of leg/ bottom of hip
Help please.... upon research I’ve found early menopause so I’m trying not to use google doctor anymore.... help!!

Is she having a stressful time at the moment? That cab affect them too. I randomly missed one for no reason a few months ago

You could be right.... I think she’s been upset about grandmother being diagnosed with cancer (should get better tho) and she’s got RE gcse this year. Although she’s always been a stresser!!!

Is there any possibility she could be pregnant?

Symptoms sound much more like a benign ovarian cyst than early menopause. Very common in girls that age but ask GP to arrange a scan.

No, fortunately she definitely isn’t, everyone says that but no, she isn’t

Hi, I think it would be best for her to discuss this directly with a doctor, gynecologist or GP.
Try not to worry, general mood (incl. stress) does indeed influence and affect hormones and cycles. When I was in my Erasmus year, I had 6-7 months without period and nothing else wrong. Gynecologist was very reassuring. All the best.

When should she visit? 15 days doesn’t seem important enough, but when does it become a worry? Bear in mind she has only had about 2 predictable periods?!?!

I’d have thought this was quite normal. It certainly was for me at that age. And if she’s only had two predictable periods before it’s VERY normal!

Periods for 2 years and sort of monthly but a few days off...

It can be caused by different things including thyroid problems. I would arrange an appointment with the GP for blood test and they will send a scan if necessary too.

I missed my period for 4 months due to hyperthyroidism; feeling hot is another symptom, stress thriger it too.. Do not picnic and take her to the doctor.

I think the frequency of period at this age is maybe less concerning, but the other symptoms (if they seem to be more severe than typical period pain & aches) is what I would speak to a dr about.

The only problem is, that assessing whether there is any kind of issue might be relatively uncomfortable for her, especially with her being the age she is.

Someone more medically inclined might correct me on this, but when I had a suspected cyst, it was an internal examination and you may feel that that’s not the route you want to go down given that it could be totally normal to have an irregular period at 15.

Give it a couple more weeks, as others have said, stress is a possibility, maybe make an appointment for half term - do ask for a female dr as teenagers may feel awkward if it's a man (you can always cancel if not needed). Don't just leave it though as there is a variety of very rare but possible reasons other than stress.

I think we’ll leave it for a few weeks as she really doesn’t want to go but we’ll see in a few weeks!

Please take her to a doctor - if only to set your mind at rest.

Please don’t google symptoms. The internet will always come up with some horror.
