me and my girlfriend have been talking for a while about having a baby and build a happy family together but there seem to be a problem and my girl was kinda ashamed to tell me about at first.
my girlfriend has said she has not had her period for around 3 months now and of course her mind is going nuts over why she has failed to get her monthly dues but it also worry me a little as well.
she had complained about a little pain in her belly around the times we started to have sex i kinda put that down to the fact i am quite large in the downstairs department and my girlfriend being quite small in hight and slim but the pain it come and go i think she only complained about it for around 2 days the pain only lasted a few seconds to maybe a minute at any time.
when having sex everything seems very normal she and i both enjoy it and always wanting more.
i have been reading that some times a period could stop or not come on its normal dates or when on a period the amount that is normal suddenly changes to little drops and so on and that some of the causes are things such as stress and hormone imbalance.
as i said above she had noticed the problem started around 3 months ago and she told me before everything was normal so we are kinda wondering what could be the problem.
a little about my girlfriend
my girlfriend is quite small around 4ft 8in tall and slim and 28 years old before we met she had suffered with some stress mind we both have but as we are together we are both very happy and madly in love.
because my girlfriend is scared to see a doctor about the issue she has asked me to research online about the issue but some places i research dont really give much advice so i am here leaving my post.
any information and possible causes would be most greatful
but the most important thing i must ask as we are trying for a baby and my girlfriend not having her period is it still possible for my girlfriend to get pregnant
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The missed periods could indicate chances of pregnancy if you have been sexually active. If pregnancy is suspected, she should consider visiting her doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If you are trying to conceive, it is important that she has regular periods (regular periods suggests periodic and regular ovulation). If you have been trying for pregnancy and have not been successful, you should consider getting a complete infertility work-up done for you and your partner to see if there are any underlying causes for the infertility/inability to conceive. Hormonal issues, problems involving ovaries and ovulation, uterine problems, tubal blocks, cervical or vaginal infections, ovarian failure/suppression etc., should be ruled out for her. For you, semen analysis should be done to rule out infections and to confirm the quality and quantity of sperms produced. Treatment as required (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help her get pregnant. Consider visiting her gynecologist/obstetrician for further evaluation and assistance and be in regular follow-up and monitoring as instructed.
