Okay, so first I want to apologize if this post is all over the place . . . it's 4 in the morning and I'm not really right in the head at this hour. :/

I haven't had a period since 7 August (the first day of my last period). 6 months and 3 days ago, I had a tubal ligation along with removal of endometriosis. There were two spots she couldn't remove because they were too dangerous. One spot was on the artery that supplies my left ovary - yet ALL of my pain is on my right side - and the other spot is on my colon.

I had a shot of Lupron on 14 June and was told it would fix the problem. Wrong. It was supposed to stop my periods, yet I bled in July, I bled in August, both were very heavy - like always - and both were almost a week long, complete with the excruciating pain. The Lupron shot was a 3mo one, instead of the one month one, and it made me sooooooooo crazy, I decided I wasn't going to go through that mess again. I was an emotional roller coaster ride from h---, and I was scaring not only my family and friends around me, I was scared of myself. Yeah, it was that bad. :( I've never had Lupron before, and I don't think it would've taken that long to stop my period, but . . . yikes. I'm scared out of my wits right now as to what the heck is going on inside my body.

There has been only two major stressors, but stress really doesn't cause me to miss my period. I've been having periods since I was 13 years old, and whenever I've been under stress, my periods were always heavier. The only two stressors that I endured were a house fire which was the beginning of August, the 2nd day of my period, and I had an issue with someone who I had moved into her old house and she was going to rent it to me, just to bring her ex-husband into the mix, and . . .well, it was a mess, but I've since moved on, and I handled it with far more grace than I thought I had in me. I've gone through worse, trust me. I've never, ever missed a period b/c of stress, and I don't get stressed very easily. There are things that do get to me, but I rant for a day, and I'm fine after that. This is just . . . I'm . . . needless to say, this is not normal for me to miss a period. Not unless I'm expecting. I have had 3 children - one of which was a stillbirth - and four miscarriages. The most recent being 26 July last year. :(

possible triggers )

Thank you in advance for any and all information you may be able to offer. I put the warning and a cut as possible triggers, as I don't know who may have endured such a horrible thing, and I do not want to upset anyone.
