    Missed or Irregular Periods - Check Your Symptoms

    Call a doctor if:

    • You have lower belly pain and think you could be pregnant.
    • A home pregnancy test says you are pregnant, or you think you're pregnant even though the test says you are not.
    • You have missed two regular periods and don't know why.
    • You miss two periods while taking birth control pills, and you have not skipped any pills.
    • You have not had your first period by age 16.
    • You have not developed breasts or pubic hair by age 14.
