Missed period

Edited , 3 users are following.

hello fellow mono warriors ๐Ÿ˜„

I went through some pretty nasty mono case. Most horrible symptoms lasted for a month but I still sometimes feel a little weird. I'm about 90% recovered, it took me about 5 weeks. Now I feel better and better everyday.

However, can mono affect your period? I missed a month of period and I'm not pregnant, no menopause. I got a lot of new acne on my face since I skipped period. Does anyone had similar? I'm freaking out...

    Hi Choowho,

    I did not miss a period but I did experience a couple months when symptoms were bad that my periods were shorter. Only 2-3 days.

    Disease processes can effect normal body functions, due to extreme stress & hormones can be messed up (acne & missed periods)...I had Mono in 11th grade, missed 6 weeks of school...it is a terrible disease, the fatigue and all my glands were huge, I also missed my period, so it can happen....if the weirdness continues you should definitely contact your Dr. just as a follow up...being so sick & run down can leave you open to other things, however Mono can take months to completely go away....hope you are feeling better soon, BEST WISHES๐Ÿ’’๐Ÿ€โ˜ฎโค๐ŸŒˆ
