Here’s one of Ask the pharmacist latest questions;

Q) My daughter had her first menstruation at 14 years old. She only had 2 cycles and stopped. What could cause this other than pregnancy?

A) Hello and thank you for your question,
In order for me to establish a full picture, can I ask how long your daughter has now been without a period? Has she started any new medication or changed her lifestyle in anyway; for example her exercise regime? Does she suffer from any symptoms at all?
There are a few medical reasons why periods may stop, however it may be worth noting that it usually takes a few cycles for a girl’s periods to settle into a routine when they first start. If you are concerned then please make an appointment at the GP. However if you are able to answer my questiperiod_painsons above I may be able to give you a more specific response.
Kind regards
