Then two weeks pass and still no period so we took another test and still negative. Then as the third week comes on August 5th and still no period. We took yet another test and still negative. No faint line or any of the sort. She does have irregular periods and she also has NOT had any symptoms of pregnancy. Could it be the stress she is receiving? I know she has been extremely stressed about her job and het eating habits have changed a lot.

I am 14 years old, and I got my period for the first time in January. I had it for 3 months, so until March, and then it stopped. It has now been 4 months since I have had my last period, and I'm getting a little concerned. Is this normal? Should I not be worried? Thank you!

It is not unusual for periods to be irregular for the first couple of years. 

If you have had sex and there is any chance you could be pregnant then that is cause for concern.

Otherwise you can expect your period to start and  stop 

If you have any ongoing concern schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or Call Corner Health Center to schedule  

I've been on the DEPO shot for years, then I switched to the i.u.d method on October 23, 2020 but then got it removed a few months later. I started the DEPO shot again on June 28, 2021 then had unprotected sex several times after, could I be pregnant?

There is a lot of information needed to answer that question.
It is recommended that you schedule an appointment at Corner Health Center or with an obstetrician to discuss further.
If I had unprotected sex on the 9th and 10th and my period is the 18th is it possible that I'm pregnant.

If you have unprotected sex you are at risk for pregnancy. If you do not start your period and you are concerned, please take a home pregnancy test or contact your primary care provider or the Corner.
