Just worried and concerned
My last period was on 15 January 2007. Ive had light bleeding for a day in February. Ive gone to a doctor to check whether I was pregnant and it came back negative. He said it could be my hormones. Im on antidepressants could that take my period away?

Please advice I dont know whether its fine not to have a period.

Stress and depression could certainly stop you having a period. Most antidepressants would not have this effect, but you would have to tell me which one you are using.
