Carly, I don't know if you are taking the pill, but that (weirdly enough) may have something to do with it. I started taking the pill in 1979, and by 1981 my periods had stopped altogether and my doc said sometimes that happens. I never had a period until I switched over to the Norplant implants (I don't think they make them anymore) in 1993. When those "ran out" I went back on the pill and have continued to have a period (much to my chagrin). One question you might ask is that didn't it make me concerned about my reproductive capabilites since that might be your concern as well, but I never wanted children so not having a period never bothered me. Something else that might affect it is low weight or lots of sports activities--some women athletes don't have periods.
