The beginning of my last menstrual cycle was the 26th July, the next expected on the 23rd August. However, I lost my cat on the 12th of August and so put down to it being absent to stress, especially as I'd already skipped a period back in May this year which turned up nine weeks to the day after my April period. I'm now nudging up on three months without a period, putting me in secondary amenorrhoea.
So basically, what other than stress can cause a period to be absent or skipped?
I'm booking in to see someone soon, but I'd like to get information up and ready before I head over, so I know what to ask for/look for/get checked over.
I know my maternal aunt had endometriosis and her uterus removed because of it, and it's suspected my half-sister (related through my mother) has it. So, naturally, something to suspect.
However, searching through a few other things highlighted symptoms of hypothyroidism -- depressive episodes/mood instability, fatigue -- and possible PCOS -- anovulation (although that could be something else) and pelvic pain (both left and right, tends to be occasional twinges/'stings' there).
Aside from those things, is there anything else that I might need to be on the lookout for/ask about?
