Hi there! Thank you for your question. As you have mentioned, you have missed your period for about 2 months. There are many reasons for menstrual irregularities such as:

  • Polycystic Ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
  • Primary ovarian insufficiency (POI)
  • Eating disorders (anorexia nervosa or bulimia)
  • Excessive exercise
  • Thyroid dysfunction (too much or too little thyroid hormone)
  • Elevated levels of the hormone prolactin
  • Uncontrolled diabetes
  • Cushing’s syndrome (elevated levels of the hormone cortisol, used in the body’s response to stress)
  • Late-onset congenital adrenal hyperplasia (problem with the adrenal gland)
  • Hormonal birth control (birth control pills, injections, or implants)
  • Hormone-containing intrauterine devices (IUDs)
  • Scarring within the uterine cavity (Asherman’s syndrome)
  • Certain medications

To avoid unwanted pregancy, you can :

Barrier methods

Reduce your risk of contracting an STI with a barrier method

This includes condoms, gloves, and dental dams for oral sex.

When using condoms, check that they aren’t expired and avoid opening the packaging with sharp objects to prevent accidental nicks or cuts on the surface.

Secondary contraception

While condoms will help protect against STIs, they can cause some issues if used as contraception.

If you want a more reliable method, think about using an additional form of birth control, whether it’s a pill or a more long-term method like an IUD.

Thank you.
