Today, I took a pregnancy test because I'd missed a few periods, gained weight, and been moody. Turns out I'm just fat and moody. FML
thanks4support tells us more :
OP here, first off I am not overweight, just gained about ten pounds shortly out of nowhere. Thank you to all of those who did have health concerns I am looking into all that.

Running not also improves your mood. It also helps to lose weight, so double win! OP, you should go to the Dr. it is not normal that your period is gone and you are gaining weight, it must be related... (PCOS?) Good luck!

Didn't you just love those episodes? I'm glad they stopped making them because they just didn't make sense anymore. Also, I couldn't understand how every baby born was healthy when the mom never changed her lifestyle. Yes OP please go to the doctor and get that checked out.

I'd still go to the doctor. The home tests aren't 100% accurate and if you've missed a few periods, even it you're not pregnant, there's still probably something not right.

I think if OP was pregnant, she would at least understand the cause of the weight gain, missed periods and moodiness.
Not knowing what's wrong with you can be an FML.

Hmm, she might want too, but I can go months without getting a period and still feel fine. I might want to add that I'm 13, so none of you think that because of the missed periods I'm pregnant.

If you recently started your period, having them sporadically and missing months is normal. it's just because your body hasnt gotten into its cycle yet.
im going to assume that you havent had your period for years and your body is still trying to get into a cycle.

if youre older and your period randomly stops for months, something may be wrong and you should see your doctor.

That's still pretty recent compared to the span of your whole natural cycle. It's only been one year, so yes, it's pretty recent.

That could be simple reason why your periods are irregular. Give it time for your body to sort it out. If irregularities continue for years, you should see your PCP to rule out any health concerns.
