Hi everyone,
apparently, I didn't get a period yet, ( it is pass my "due date" for week and a half already ) and I am not pregnant. Did any of you ladies have similar experience? I don't know what to do, should I go to the doctor or not? Maybe I am overly - concerned? I stopped taking Prozac recently ( I was on it for several months due to my anxiety problems ), so I was wondering can that be a cause? THANK YOU.

lastra - Yes, I have and I know someone on Prozac who experienced the same thing. Depression and anxiety can be caused by a hormonal imbalance. If you want to PM me for more details, I'm happy to share. Basically, you should go to your doctor and ask that you thyroid (TSH, T3, AND T4) be tested, along with your estrogen, progesterone (spelling?), and prolactin. You could also have cysts (PCOS or endometriosis), which would require that you have an ultrasound. Finally, you'll want to have your blood sugar tested just because high blood sugar is a symptom of other health concerns that are related.

You might experience other side effects, which would signify that you have another health concern. Side effects could include nausea, dizziness, insomnia, hot sweats, weight gain, abnormal hair growth/loss, weight loss, sudden increase in forgetfulness, emotional instability, and other fun stuff.

I thought I'd add that the cysts may not show until a couple periods were missed.

If you go longer than a few more weeks with no period you should definately see a doctor. It could be the Prozac but it could also be something more serious that you should be seen for.
