How old is she? Being irregular is common in the tean years but going a year without a period is not. She needs to be seen by a doctor.

First of all you need to tell her age and her marital status means if she is married or unmarried.
Here I am prescribing some tips and treatment for unmarried status:
She is suffering from Amenorrhea in which a woman usually experience absence of periods for three to six months or longer. A woman get it due to her body hormones estrogen and progesterone imbalance. Due to this hormonal imbalance a woman usually got disturb her normal pattern of periods. And another reason for it in women can be PCOS and Hypothyroidism. [br>[br>So, if you want to regulate her monthly cycle you need to keep her on HT (Hormonal Therapy) in which a woman need to go on birth control pills to balance the body hormones. These pills or contraceptive pills contains body hormones estrogen and progestrone and help to control irregular periods. [br>[br>And for this she can opt for Depo Provera, Ovral G, Nexplanon and Mirena etc. But before having any of them consult to your doctor.
And these pills can be easily available at your doorstep from online pharmacies like, Meds247online, drugpillstore and Medsonline4u etc.

No offense but birth control pills don't "balance body hormones". They can replace hormones in some cases and provide what women assume are "normal" menstrual periods in the sense that one would bleed when taking the placebo pills.

These tend to give those with a concern over irregular menstrual cycles a sense of well being because they now tend to bleed on a regular schedule but the pills themselves "cure" nothing. Once off of them it's not unusual to go back to the "pre-pill" schedule.

In the case of the initial poster, she stated her daughter started her period in August of 2012. This would imply a young woman; perhaps just a teenager. Menstrual cycles can be, well, screwy those first few years. This isn't unusual. Birth control pills may help, although a parent may be hesitant to place a young teen on this.

Your daughter is quite thin for her height, even at age 16. Is there an issue of an eating disorder/problem here?


When there is not enough body fat/protein present it is not unusual that menstruation would cease. It is almost as if the body can sense that the nutritional status is so poor that pregnancy would not be safe at that low body weight. We see this in young women battling eating disorders. Once their weight and intake begins to improve, menstruation returns.

At 5'7" and 98 pounds she falls in the under 5 percent weight category. Perhaps this lower weight with less fat stores is the reason for her lack of menstruation.
