User :   hello
Doctor :   hi
User :   can nearly non existant periods be caused by irregular use of birth control pills and a new diet? my girlfriend and i had sex 5 weeks ago and the condom seemed fine she hadnt taken the pill that day she was supposed to start that months pills that day. 4 weeks later she had a virtually non existant period. she has no symptoms but the outside of her nipples seem bigger. do you think she could be pregnant or do you think the irregular pill taking and diet could have caused the near non existant period?
User :   she was talking to you a minute ago
Doctor :   how can i help you?
User :   she wasnt taking the pills regularly a week before the period

she was talking to you a minute ago
Doctor :   ok the fact is when period occurs its highly unlikely to be pregnancy
User :   even though it wasnt even like a perio?
Doctor :   if you need to rule pregnancy you can take urine pregnancy test
User :   she bled for like an hour a day for 2 days then brown very light spotting and brown mucus
Doctor :   yes irregular pills and dieting can cause irregular periods
User :   what about the bigger outside of the nipples
User :   can that be a sign of pregnancy?
Doctor :   not likely to be
User :   also can strict heavy dieting cause periods to keep being virtually non existant?
Doctor :   you can get her examined by her gyneacologist that will be adequate to arrive at any judgement
User :   she only eats about 1000 kcal a day after excercise
Doctor :   yes heavy dieting when it crosses a limit can virtually stop the periods which is not a healthy sign
User :   could the extreme dieting be causing the period problems?

Doctor :   anything else i can help you with?
