Missing period??

First of all, let me preface this by saying I'm going to the doctor in a few weeks so I'm sure this will be something I discuss with her. But I'm hoping someone might have a little insight for me beforehand?

I started eating LC in December, and I haven't had a period since then. I'm 26 years old and I am on the pill. Before eating LC I had my period like clockwork. And now it's vanished! No spotting, nothing. I have noticed around my TOM I still get PMS, bloating, upset tummy... basically all my usual period symptoms, but no visible period at all. What gives? Should I be freaking out? I should also add that I've taken like 5 pregnancy tests since then (one of which was given to me by a nurse at work) and all come back with a definite negative.

Maybe your BCP prescription needs to be changed? I never got TOM when I tried being on the pill (years and years ago) even when I got to the week with the little green "sugar pills". Your MD will no doubt order some blood work. Maybe calling your MD just to let them know what's going on would be a good idea, get the blood work ordered and have the results before your appointment.
