Customer Question

Hello. I am 40 years old. I have never had irregular periods. I just missed a period. I know I'm not pregnant because my husband got fixed about 9 years ago. Any idea what could cause this? I have no sudden weight changes or stress.
JA: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?
Customer: No pain, always regular
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Gynecologist should know?
Customer: No
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Gynecologist about your situation and then connect you two.

the hormonal cycle is a very sensitive procedure which can be influenced by many facts, even stress or climate changes can play a role. So period can be absent without a serious reason. If pregnancy is excluded, there´s nothing to worry, just await the further progress.

Kind regards,
