    ¿Cómo sería "tengo ya dos faltas (de menstruación)?
    Es decir, dos meses sin menstruación...
    Cheers!

    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. :confused:

    You don´t know how right you are...
    Only business, no personal experience.
    Thanks anyway!
    El contexto es informal, por lo que me quedo con "missed".

    In a formal and technical style your can say:

    I've opsomenorrhea (i.e. delayed menstruation: hypomenstrual syndrome)
