Well i am 21 years old and havent had a period in nearly 2 years. I seen a Dr last year and they did blood work and a pap smear and a ultra sound and everything came back good. she subscribed me something you take for a few days and its supposed to make you start like a week later. but it didnt. then about a month later i kind of had a period / spotted for a week, i didnt take any more pills and didnt go back to the dr because i dont have insurance and couldnt afford any more bills. Just wanted to see if i could get some advice as to what i should do without spending a big bunch on tests that come back positive.

An annual pelvic exam should be performed in all females who are sexually active and in all women 21 years of age and older, unless your doctor recommends otherwise.

Lack of insurance is difficult if you want to see a specific doctor. However, there are options to get affordable or free medical care through your state, city or, if in school, the student health center. Please do make an appointment with a health care professional as soon as possible.

I had a pelvic exam also. But everything came back fine. I have gained some weight and wondered if maybe that has something to do with it. When I was in High school i was very active with sports. But now Im married and work so i dont have a lot of free time to do so,
