¿Cómo sería "tengo ya dos faltas (de menstruación)?
Es decir, dos meses sin menstruación...
Missed o skipped.
I've missed two periods already.
first of all Congratulations!!
my period hasnt come for 2 months
I lacked my last two menses. (only as a medical term, not everyday use- thanks Aztlaniano)
Hope it helps
There's a medical condition "amenorrhea" which can happen e.g. to athletes in intense training.
Of course, there are other possible explanations.
I agree with aztlaniano that "missed" is the most common word in this case.
I don't think "lack" is correct, even in a medical context. I also don't think that congratulations are necessarily in order, as Dlyons points out.
I think it's clearly a joke. However, if you think that it can be offensive I can remove it.
You don´t know how right you are...
Only business, no personal experience.
El contexto es informal, por lo que me quedo con "missed".
(Hey guys, wanna have a baby? ;-)
NOO! Only kidding! Un poco de fun no está mal...
Gracias mil por tu ayuda (y tus congratulations ;-)
In a formal and technical style your can say:
I've opsomenorrhea (i.e. delayed menstruation: hypomenstrual syndrome)
Separate names with a comma.
