Many people who miss a period will take a test to check for pregnancy. If the pregnancy test is negative, a variety of conditions and factors may be responsible for the lack of menstruation. In this article, we explain how the menstrual cycle works and provide some possible causes of a missed period other than pregnancy. We also cover how to make a home pregnancy test as accurate as possible and when to see a doctor. The ovaries release an egg in a process called ovulation , which occurs approximately every 28 days. While a missed period is one of the first signs of pregnancy, there are a variety of other reasons why it can occur. If a person does not menstruate for 3 months in a row, this is called amenorrhea. This condition affects 3—4 percent of women.
Dysmenorrhea: Painful Periods
Pain associated with menstruation is called dysmenorrhea. Dysmenorrhea is the most commonly reported menstrual disorder. More than one half of women who menstruate have some pain for 1—2 days each month. Primary dysmenorrhea usually is caused by natural chemicals called prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are made in the lining of the uterus.
