I missed my period entirely. Does that mean I’m pregnant?

If you normally have regular periods, this is a common sign of pregnancy.  However, missed periods might have a different cause.  If your period is often variable/irregular, this may be normal – especially for young teens.  Missed periods can also have a variety of causes, including: changes in weight, stress/anxiety, illness, medications (e.g., birth control), changes in schedule, exercise, illegal substances, breast feeding, other medical conditions (thyroid issues), etc.   Take a home pregnancy test, then see your doctor to find out more.
