    Skipping Period every other month what to do?
    sky_ler86 posted:
    I am twenty five years old. I am about sixty pounds overweight. I have progressively gained weight since I graduated high school in 2003 but I am the heaviest I've ever been at 195. I just recently put on the extra twenty pounds and have been skipping my cycle every other month. I have had problems in the past with irregular bleeding but I thought I had it under control. I seem to be much more depressed, tired, and just want to eat more all the time. I don't know what to do. I don't have health insurance so going to the doctor right now is out of the question. The worst part about it is my boyfriend and I are trying to conceive and I feel horrible every month that I miss and get hopeful and than I start the following month. It's so frustrating can anyone give me some advise? And yes I have tried diet and exercising but the more I do that the more I crave the food that I shouldn't be eating.
