No period
I am worried because I am late with my period by about two weeks. I am on Ginette

I am also bipolar (I have a relapse at least once a year so am on strong medication)
Tegretol CR200
Etomine 40 mg twice a day
Rivotril 2mg one at night
Camcolit 400 mg per day
Venlor 150mg once a day
Venlor 75mg once a day
Trazadone 100mg 2 at night
Pur bloka 10mg 3 times a day
Purata 30 mg 3 times a day

Could this medication be messing with my hormones? And if so, why only after a year? Am I sterile or could I be pregnant? What will happen to the baby if I am? Do you think it''s my thyroid?

Please help

You will have to consult your doctor for a pregnancy test to rule this possibility out. The doctor can also test you for diabetes and hypothyroidism. You will have to consult your psychiatrist and maybe discus another form of contraception, as I am sure that oral contraception in combination with all your chronic medication can lead to hypertension, cardiac disease, deep vein thrombosis, as well as a stroke.
