Period Problems: Irregular Periods, Heavy Periods & Menstrual Problems

Period Problems: Irregular Periods, Heavy Periods & Menstrual ProblemsPeriod problems can affect any woman. Even if you have a history of never, ever missing a period, it’s possible for you to occasionally have a period problem. You may be extra stressed that month, or maybe you’ve been traveling and suffering from jetlag. There are a lot of factors that can sometimes affect your menstrual cycle and lead to period problems.

For most women, their menstrual period arrives at the same time every month without fail. The textbook menstrual cycle is 28 days long, which means that there are 28 days between the first day of your period and the first day of the next. Not every woman follows the 28-day rule though. A normal menstrual cycle ran range from 21 days (your period is 3 weeks apart) to 35 days (your period is 5 weeks apart). What’s “normal” for you may be different for another woman.

Normal Periods Don’t Exist

You probably learned in economics that there is no such thing as a free lunch – nothing in life is free. And the same goes with your menstrual cycle. There is no such thing as a “normal period.” Every woman has a different menstrual cycle, and the length, duration, and days in between each period can be varied, too.

For some women, they have 34-day cycles. Other women have classic 28-day cycles. You may have three-day periods, in which you have one day of heavy menstrual bleeding and two days of lighter flow. Your best friend’s period may last for seven long days, where she has heavy blood flow for four or five days. That’s normal for her.

If you’ve been having your period for a while, you begin to get a feel for what’s normal for you. When you pay attention, you can see the pattern in your period’s frequency (how often you have periods), duration (how long your period lasts), and the flow (how heavy or light your bleeding is). When one of these elements is out of whack, it’s only natural to wonder what’s causing your “irregular periods.”

The Most Common Period Problems

All women should track their menstrual cycle. You can do this the old-fashioned way, or by using a period tracker app on your mobile phone. Paying attention to your period can help you spot problems when they occur, so you can get down to the nitty-gritty of what’s causing them. Here are the most common menstrual problems that women face:

Bleeding Between Periods

Spotting between periods can be normal, or it can be a serious issue.

There are a number of women who routinely spot between periods. This menstrual problem is often benign (not serious) for them. Spotting can be an ovulation symptom (due to the rapid surge and increase in estrogen around the time the egg bursts out of the follicle at ovulation), and it can also occur due to a woman forgetting to take her birth control pill.

On the other hand, if you’ve never spotted or experienced any type of bleeding in between your periods, and this symptom has appeared out of nowhere, you need to seek medical help. Sometimes bleeding can be due to cancer, an ectopic pregnancy, an irritated sore in your vagina, or a polyp in the uterus or cervix.

If you’re worried, visit your doctor for a pelvic exam to figure out what’s going on.

Missed or Skipped Periods

There are a number of factors that can cause missed or skipped periods. Pregnancy is the number one reason for a missed period. (You don’t have periods when you’re pregnant.) If you’ve been having your periods regularly (no irregular periods at all), you should always entertain the possibility that you could get pregnant. Birth control can be effective at preventing pregnancy, but it’s not always 100 percent. Even the most careful woman has a 1 percent chance of becoming pregnant, regardless of the birth control method she chooses. Abstinence (no sexual contact at all) is the only 100 percent way to prevent pregnant.

If you’re not pregnant, you may miss your period due to high levels of stress, excessive exercise, anorexia and eating disorders, rapid weight gain or weight loss, jetlag, and hormonal problems. Stopping birth control pills can also throw your menstrual cycle off, and lead to irregular or skipped periods. It can take several months after stopping hormonal contraceptives for your period to return to normal.

For further reading on this specific period problem, please read the post: Reasons for Missed Periods When You’re Not Pregnant.

Irregular Periods (Oligomenorrhea)

In the first two or three years after the start of menstruation, it’s common for teenagers to experience irregular periods. You may have a normal period one month, and not have another one for two months. You might have two periods in one month. Irregular periods in teenagers is normal, and it’s due to your fluctuating hormones. For many girls, their periods will even out and become more regular.

There are, however, some women who never, ever establish a normal menstrual pattern. They may suffer from irregular periods (the medical term is oligomenorrhea) all of their reproductive life. These women never know what day their period will arrive, and this can be a huge inconvenience for these women. Ovulation is difficult for these women to predict as well.

Once you reach your 40s, you may start to have irregular cycles due to perimenopause – this refers to the five (or more) years before menopause (the official end of your periods). Women who are going through perimenopause can suffer from irregular periods. One month, their period might arrive on day 30 of their cycle. The next month, it arrives 21 days later. And the following month, their period doesn’t arrive until 43 days after the last one. In addition to this period problem, women going through perimenopause may experience hot flashes, mood swings, sleeping difficulty and anxiety.

If perimenopause isn’t the cause of your menstrual problems, it’s possible that your irregular periods are due to stress, extreme weight loss or gain, the use of medications (especially ones that affect your central nervous system – such as antipsychotics and antidepressants), thyroid problems and other endocrine disorders, polycystic ovary disease, and other hormonal problems.

Painful Periods (Dysmenorrhea)

Unless you’re incredibly lucky, every woman will experience some degree of discomfort when her period comes around. Menstrual cramps aren’t fun, and their severity can range from mild to crazy intense. Cramps are simply uterine contractions (like you’d feel during labor) that help your uterus shed its lining. For most women, they only experience cramps for a day or two.

You may have dysmenorrhea – the medical term for painful periods – if you find that your abdominal cramps are so painful that it’s hard to get out of bed. Women who suffer from this period problem may also notice other uncomfortable symptoms, including nausea and vomiting, headaches, lower backaches, and even diarrhea.

Painful periods can be due to menstruation itself, or it can be caused by a reproductive problem, such as fibroids or endometriosis – a condition that occurs when the lining of your uterus grows in other areas of your body. If your painful periods are caused by fibroids or endometriosis, you can be treated with surgery.

The only way to figure out what’s causing your painful periods is to go to your doctor and get an exam. You may require a pelvic exam, pap smear, and possibly an ultrasound or a minimally invasive surgery called a laparoscopy.

For all women with painful periods, you may find that nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs – including ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), aspirin, and naproxen (Aleve) – help give you temporary pain relief. These medications prevent your body from producing prostaglandins (the chemicals in the body that encourage uterine contractions), and this helps you have less severe pain. Your physician may also recommend that you begin take hormonal contraceptives, like the birth control pill or an intrauterine device (IUD), to help make your periods more comfortable.

Heavy Menstrual Periods (Menorrhagia)

The average woman will lose about two or three tablespoons of blood every month with her period. This equates to two to four pad or tampon changes on her heaviest days. Women who have menorrhagia (heavier than normal periods) can lose five or more tablespoons of blood with her monthly period. Women with this period problem can go through five pad or tampon changes a day.

If you’re going through one or more pads or tampons every few hours, this is a sign that your period is heavier than normal. Please don’t ignore this menstrual problem – please go and see your gynecologist to see what’s the cause.

Heavy periods can be caused by an early miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, uterine fibroids, polyps, benign (not dangerous) tumors in your uterus, uterine cancer, clotting disorders, a change in your birth control pills, the use of certain drugs (including steroids and blood thinners, and other conditions.

When to Call the Doctor about Your Period Problems

It’s always a good idea to make an appointment with your doctor when you notice anything out of the ordinary. If you feel uncomfortable, or you’re worried about your menstrual period, contact your physician and get a gynecological exam to make sure that you’re healthy down there.

You should definitely go see a doctor if:

  • You have always had regular periods, but all of a sudden, your cycles are irregular.
  • You’re experiencing missed periods for several months in a row, and you’re positive that you’re not pregnant.
  • Your menstrual bleeding lasts for more than seven days. Or your period comes more than 21 days, or longer than 35 days for at least three months.
  • You haven’t had a period in three months.
  • You have painful periods that are interfering with your life.

If you’re having period problems, you should really make an appointment with your gynecologist or doctor to figure out what’s going on. Don’t let menstrual problems make your life miserable.

    Hi I had sex on August 16 & 18 had my period on August 3 to 10 2014 then I cane back on August 30th then it only lasted for 3days normally my period is seven days what could this be.

  • Anna September 12, 2014, 8:39 am

    I am 37 have always had period on normal time range 7days heavy bleeding ,it is time for my period I had what seem to be normal one day heavy and then woke up no blood no spots just gone last mth had normal period what is wrong is this normal i am fixed too over 16 years should i worry?

  • halie September 6, 2014, 1:31 am

    Hi I’m 18. I started the pill and its azerette and I’ve just started my fourth pack. My periods were very long and extreme cramping came with it as well as the fact that I went through an extra large tampon and heavy pad (together) in about an hour…since I started the pill my periods come right when I start the blue pills, are light, hardly any cramping, and end on the last pill (5 days). This period I was suppose to have stopped yesterday but I just went to the bathroom and a bunch of blood came out… I have extreme pressure at the bottom of my tummy right above my vagina and the pain is like someone is threading needles through my stomach and yanking… It hurts very very bad and I would rate it a 9 ….I’ve had a kidney stone so that’s why I’m not rating it a 10… Is there anyway I could be pregnant and miscarrying? Or the egg is implanting in my uterus? I was pregnant a lil over a year ago and had a very bad miscarriage.. Lots of blood and pain… And tissue also came out. I’m just wondering if something like that is happening again… I want to know asap so I can stop the pill so I don’t hurt the baby or what ever is going on… The pain is just similar to the miscarriage and I really need help… Thanks

    I had my period on july 9th and my bf and i have been trying to get pregnant
    Its the first week of august and i was a week late
    I thought my period tracker was wrong but then i just waited til i recieved
    My period now its august 12 and its my second day of my period. Well atleast
    I think its my period but 2 days before i started my period i felt nausea and until now i still
    Feel nauseas. My period is much lighter because i usually have bad cramps
    And a heavy period. This time its lighter and i feel like i never know what to eat.
    Everytime i eat i have the feeling of throwing up but i never do. I also just stuck my finger
    In my throat just so i can get the feeling to go away. But when i threw up it was like nothing. I have no clue whats going on. I honestly hate the feeling
    Of not knowing what to eat and when i think of something and i eat it
    I end up not wanting it.

I don’t get cramps or anything..but i’m really worried and concerned because I don’t have my period for about 5-6 months then now I’m having it for 16days.. Please help me. Thank you!

  • Rebecca August 6, 2014, 12:30 am

    Hi! Im 17 and all worried!): I have a question. Normally I start my period at the begaining of every month. Last month when I had my period it was very very light but I normally have light periods but not as light as last time. And my periods last for about 3-4 days but it was shorter. Now this month I started to bleed but very very light again! Me and my bf had sex since there was nothing really there and after we did, I stopped bleeding again. And it keeps going from bleeding to not bleeding. What does this mean? Could I possibly be pregnant? (Periods are so light that it looks like red water color) and also when I first started having this very very short period a month ago was when I had sex with my bf like 2 weeks before

  • priya August 5, 2014, 12:12 pm

    Hi,
    Mostly my period comes between 42 to 50 days.Last time it didn’t come for 75 days but I got light red discharge for a week. After 75 days I have been bleeding for 19 days and still happening.
    Normally when I lose weight period comes early.Also I overate due to work stress and put on weight 2 mnths back.
    Im travelling 1.5 hours in the mornings and 1.5 hrs in the evening as opposed to 25 minutes travel I was used to in the past.

    If i go to doctor what tablets will be prescribed to me.I had a very bad effect due to progesterone pill in the past.Will they give me hormone tablets if I visit the doctor.Thanks.

  • Ashley August 2, 2014, 11:23 pm

    Ok I technically didn’t have my period, but would see little blood clots in the toilet oonly for about 2-3 days during the time I was expecting my period.I have a 6 month old already and on sprintec pills. Could I be pregnant again?

  • Marie July 29, 2014, 3:06 am

    Im 38yr of age I have always been regular with my periods that would last 7 days, and I bled for a month after giving birth to my 3 sons, after my 3rd c section my cords were tied, Its been 11 years since my last child, but due to my heavy bleeding and being in white clothes Monday – Saturday for work, it became very embarrassing and uncomfortable. So I opted to get the injection that stops your period for 3 months at a time and take control, this was on the 21st May straight after my period, I don think the injection worked on me because I have been bleeding since the 26th June, going on 6 weeks now. -really worried now,yes I have seen a GP and he says nothing is wrong with me. any advice please

  • Shanae Dixon July 27, 2014, 4:18 pm

    • DP Nguyen July 14, 2014, 9:15 pm

      Yep, absolutely! Lots of women who have irregular periods are able to get pregnant!

  • Shannon July 8, 2014, 12:32 pm

    5 yrs ago, I was in a car accident. I was put in the hospital & put on steroids due to my injuries. Ever since then, my cycle has been very irregular. (I was on depo before the accident, after my daughter was born) I now deal with my period every other week. And sometimes, it lasts for 9-10 days. I don’t know what to do, now that I no longer have insurance. I can’t afford a doctor, but I can’t afford this problem, either. It’s draining me. I don’t enjoy life, with my kids one bit, because of this issue. I’m at my wits end because of this!

    • DP Nguyen July 14, 2014, 9:26 pm

      I’m sorry about your car accident! However, it is not normal to be bleeding every other week, and to bleed for 9 to 10 days. You definitely have something going on. I really think you have to go see a doctor, unfortunately, so he/she can run some tests. Perhaps there is a low cost clinic near where you live. Or you can find a women’s clinic that offers low prices. But you need to go see someone. Good luck!

  • Sarah January 27, 2014, 2:38 pm

  • Amber February 23, 2013, 4:03 pm

    For the last 4 years I started missing the occasional period to the point I could predict on what months I would miss them. However last year was shocking. By the time my doctor took my period problems seriously, I had missed 5 periods.

    I’d have a period one month, then miss two periods in a row, then have a periods, miss one, have one miss another two etc. My doctor wanted to put me on birth control without checking for the cause until i also mentioned that I was noticing hair growing and darkening in places that it shouldn’t and i was wondering if it was PCOS. The doctor booked me in for an ultrasound -for my ovaries. I visited him in late November/ Early December and my appointment is in early April.

    I’ve missed December 2012, January 2013 and Febuary 2013. I missed three periods in a row. My last period was in late November 2012 and i didn’t feel a thing. I just went to the bathroom and boom. however that period was extremely light, to the point that the blood looked really washed out. That period only lasted two days, and on the second day, the blood flow was just above spotting.

    I’m not sure if i should call up my doctor again and let him know of the three periods missed in a row. He doesn’t know what’s wrong and seems to be more than ready to put me on birth control without even seeing what’s wrong with me. I’ve never taken birth control in my life and I’m not sexually active something that’s utterly baffling him as that was ruled out in the beginning.

    Every month, I get the symptoms of getting my period – the weird “fertile mucus” that my puberty book -for girls- describes- the weight gain, increased appetite, increased energy, Teary and emotional, bad mood swings, cravings etc. But every time I get that wet feeling that women associate with “oh I’m bleeding” there’s no blood to be seen. And for the last three missed periods, I’ve started getting this small weird discomfort/ pain on my left side, that comes and goes almost like pulsing. i get this feeling every so often.

    I’m almost 20 and this is not normal for a woman my age

  • lawl February 19, 2013, 1:25 pm

    I have irregular periods and have recently had my pill changed to cerezette, i havent been very good at taking these pills. Around 2 weeks ago i had unprotected sex 5 days before period was due and hadnt been taking my pill to the right times. My period was due last week but it hasnt come, i had all the symptoms ie cramping etc but a few days ago i starting having brownish colour discharge that has lasted a few days. i took a hpt and it was negative but i believe it was too early. I have very sore boobs, slight cramping but nothing major, very thirsty all the time, headaches and weeing more. What do you think this could be?

    • DP Nguyen February 22, 2013, 11:11 am

      There is always the chance you are pregnant if you aren’t regular with your pills. I would wait a week and then take another HPT. All your symptoms do sound like early preg symptoms

    I stopped taking my contraceptive pill in october, my periods quickly sorted out and last 2 came when expected. My latest one was 2days early and I am on my 13th day of bleeding, and it seems to be getting slightly heavier. I’ve been to my doctor who told me to do a pregnancy test, I did and it was negative, I’m worried what else it could be. Its really worrying me!

  • sarah February 3, 2013, 12:00 pm

    Hey, i am 20. please advice me. Iv had my periods throughout January and it is the beginning of February and they are now even getting a bit heavier. they were light in January. I have been told by a friend to take a contraceptive pill that they help to regulate with this sort of thing.. i have never used contraceptives before so is it true that they somewhat regulate hormones and will help in my situation?

  • Vikozux December 15, 2012, 4:52 am

    I can’t thank you enough wiseindividualspell@gmail.com for all that you have done for me. About a year ago I my partner split up, we had both made BIG mistakes in our relationship. He ended up moving away from me to pursue a new life. I knew in my heart that he would be the only one to make me happy. I was relieved when I found your wiseindividualspell@gmail.com address and what you had to offer. I requested 3 day casting of the reunite us love spell and within that 3days’s company had relocated him back to our hometown where I still lived. We immediately reconnected and move in with each other. Our wedding date is Febuaary 23/2/2013.

  • Amber December 13, 2012, 1:14 pm

    Hello. I have had a very irregular period for me. I usually have a heavy flow that leaves me in pain through my whole period. Before I got my “period” me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex, during the end of my last period and during my ovulation dates. I have a 7 month old son, I am experiencing some of the same problems as when I was pregnant with him. But my “period” came on time. It was somewhat heavy the first day. After that, it kept stopping and going. Kinda like spotting. I thought that may have been caused by stress, but now I am still experiencing things. I feel nauseous at random times. I still have cramps and I also have somewhat diarrhea, but sometimes I am also constipated. I am more gassy than I normally am. I have never experienced these things after my “period” so I’m not exactly sure on what is going on. I took 3 pregnancy tests when I noticed my period was very irregular, they all came back negative. I’m not sure if its to early to tell or not. Could it still be stressed related? I’m not stressed anymore but this has been going on for a week now. Could I still be pregnant and I just took the tests too soon? I don’t really have the money to go to a doctor, but I’d like to know if anyone else has ever experienced this and turned out to be pregnant? Please get back to me. Thank you. :)

  • Latoya84 November 11, 2012, 9:05 am

    I has on the depo shot for 8 years, and 3 years before that. I missed a shot the first time i was on Depo and my period didnt come back on. i went to my doctor and discovered i was pregnant. A got back on the depo after i had my son and 8 years later i decided to get off the shot for good.I have been off the shot for a year now. My period came back in august and has been fairly regular up intil November. I thought i could have been pregnant because i had sex on all my fertility day according to the iphone MYdays app. I was feeling tired, dizzy, lower back and adomenal pain then my period came 5 days early. No cramp, tender breast, very heavy, alot of clots, bright red blood and it seems like it has no end.(never had this happen, alway had light periods) It looks like a murder seen when i go to the restroom. Its been 4 days since it started and my period usally last 5 days, im on the 4th day now and its not lighten up. I never had a heavy period and this is starting to freak me out. I started taking prenatal vitimins because i heard there were good for you. Could the vitimins be why my period is early and heavy this month? could i be having a miscarriage? all pregnancy test were negative but i could have taken them to early.

  • crystal November 11, 2012, 8:37 am

    I have a 2 year old daughter and a 4 month old son. Since having my son I did not breastfeed so my period returned about 6 weeks after having him (after 6 weeks of very heavy bleeding from my labor) and it’s hasn’t stopped. The longest I have gone without bleeding is 3 days. I have changed my birth control twice to see if it would help stop the bleeding (this was a suggestion by my doctor) and so far it still hasn’t stopped. I’m at a loss and don’t what know I can do, any suggestions on what could be going on and how to try to get my period under control?

  • Sarah November 10, 2012, 3:47 pm

    Hi, I’m 16 years old. I got my period when I was 12 & it was really irregular & heavy for the first year or so. & then when I was 14, I got put on birth control, & I would spot the first few months. but after that, my periods would last maybe 3 days, very light, sometimes cramps, & no spotting. & I’ve been sexually active for maybe a year & a half, we don’t use protection. but the past few months, I’ve been spotting & crampy inbetwern periods & when my period does come, its usually brown-ish & lasts like a day. like right now, I’m not supposed to get my period for another 2 weeks. (I can keep track with my birth control.) but I just started spotting & I’m crampy again. any help? my mom doesn’t know I’m sexually active, so if it isn’t anything serious, I’m not gonna tell her.

    • crystal November 11, 2012, 8:47 am

      Don’t take this to much to heart, but when I was younger (about 15 years ago, LOL) I had something very similar happen but it didn’t just occur during my period time I could tell something was off before and after my period. I went to my family doctor and I had an infection which was what was causing the pain, spotting, and brownish colored discharge. I was able to take antibiotics for a week to take care of it so it wasn’t a big deal but things like that you can’t just let go without doing something. Keep in mind it was not an STD, so don’t worry, it was merely a vaginal infection. I am also a mother of a boy and girl and as a parent I know that the “sex topic” can be uncomfortable for both parent and child, but I would feel so great inside if my daughter came to me with her worries above anyone else. I didn’t go to my mom because she was not approachable at all and to this day I’m still angry with her over that because being young can be very confusing and overwhelming. You know your mother best and if you feel you can be honest with her you should, but if you can’t I understand that too. I don’t know what area you live in but if you need to seek any type of medical attention just to make sure everything is ok, I remember I went to planned parenthood when I was young and couldn’t go to my parents. They were a lifesaver.

I went to my gyno and he did a pelvic exam and pap. He said nothing was wrong. So now it will be 2 weeks and I still see blood. What could be the cause of this? I’m really worried since this has not happened to me before.

  • SDey November 9, 2012, 2:48 am

    I am 32 years old and have been married since 3 years. Never had any birthcontrol pills. Since March , 2012 I have been noticing very light periods. I have been trying to conceive since May, 2012. but I didn’t conceived the same month, I got panicked and visited the GYN doctor and after he confirmed of having poly-cystic ovaries and suggested proper diet and exercise to conceive naturally.
    and ordered for a few blood tests , PAP Smear which was normal.
    I ttc naturally for a couple of months until July, but ended up with no good. I visited the GYN doctor, the doctor ordered for HSG test and the results were normal. I was suggested to take folic acid every day .
    The periods were very very light but comes regularly every 30-32 days. But after taking folic acid supplements, my period volume was a little more.
    Immediately after HSG, the same month , I conceived in Sept, 2012 , the hpt showed positive and I visited the GYN the next day , the doctor confirmed the pregnancy but ordered for the blood test.
    After 3 days of my test, I started spotting and got scared. I called the doctor, the doctor said the HCG was 31 and progesterone was 3.4 which was not sufficient to carry a healthy pregnancy, so unfortunately ended up with a miscarriage/chemical pregnancy and the periods came the immediately after 2 days. The transvaginal US showed a 5 centimeter cyst, which the doctor assumes could be a functional cyst, though not sure. He suggested to give a gap of a month before trying again .
    The GYN doctor has given 2 options either to still try naturally or to go for Clomid treatment. Now
    Now today 8th nov, 2012, I got my periods after 34 days of my last menstrual period , but they are again very very light, not even a table spoon . I am worried ,
    Now i am confused, if I can conceive naturally again? Shall i try to conceive naturally this month or I should now go for Clomid ?
    Please advise. Thank you!!

My last regular period was october 8th 2012 well 15 days after i started bleeding for 4 days, but only 1 day was heavy the rest were just spots. My next regular period should have started november 3rd 2012 but I didn’t. I took a home pregnancy test and it was negative. Could I just have started early or am I pregnant?

Normally my periods only last 4or 5days. I’m really confused because I thought the pill was supposed to help regulate my period and now the last two times its been worse and longer (like I said last time it was two weeks long)

  • worried November 5, 2012, 10:15 am

    HI, I am 33 years old. I had my tubes tied 8 years ago after i had my son. For the past year my menstrual cycle has kind of “rotated” around the month. Usually I would get it around the 20th, but it started coming a week earlier every month. For the past 6 months or so they are getting closer and closer, and now are only ten days appart from the start of one to the next. some times getting 2 in one month. They are heavy (kind of normal) and last about 4 to 5 days each.(used to last 5 to 7) I have never cramped before like I have been the past few months. Every month the cramps get worse, and is always on my lower right side of my abdomen. They are severe. I dont want to go to the doc. if it’s normal for my age, but I am scared as I had one child with cancer, and just found out that my other may as well. Please tell me what could be going on, I’m freaking out. Thank you for your time

    I’ve never in my life had a normal period. It’s always extremely early or day or two late. Always a heavy bleeder, changing 2-3 times in 2 hours at least. I have recently been naseous at night for the past two months. My period is still coming when it wants to but has been a little lighter. I’ve also felt wierd movements in my stomach but passed it off as gas. I have been really tired and have a lot of lower back pain lately. I have tested 3 times in two months. What could this be?

  • Nicole November 2, 2012, 10:30 pm

    I am 30. I have a daughter that is 3 so hubby and I are talking about getting pregnant again. I have been the birth control pill (Aleese) since college. Was taking daily at the same time since our daughter was born. Had my last period Oct 10th – 12th, then started the new pack on Oct 14th for 2 days. Hubby and I decided to stop the pill to focus on getting pregnant (last day I took it was Oct 16th – probably shouldn’t have started the next pack). Got what seemed like “another period” on Oct 20th, which was heavy the first day, then less (much less) the next 3 days. Since Monday, Oct. 29th thru today, I have been exhausted, my uterus felt “heavy” – especially after eating and when I have to pee, sort of sick to my stomach. I’m trying to figure out which date to use as the first day of my last period and how to figure out when my next period should be due to come (and when a pregnancy test would be accurate to take)?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi,

    I’m 27 years old and I was on the pill since I was 16 years old. In August 2011, I came off the pill so my husband and I could start a family. My period had never been a problem until January 2012 when I started having my period every 6-7 weeks. I finally fell pregnant in August and found out I was 6 weeks pregnant. A week later, I miscarried. After I miscarried, I thought my period would get back to normal, but it hasn’t. Six weeks after I miscarried, my period starts. I want to be a mother so badly but I don’t want to go to the doctors cause I feel like I would be waisting their time. I will go to the doctors soon but can someone give me some advice please.

    Thanks for your time if anyone reply’s back xxx

    Hi i have a question about my period. usually i have it for 5 days. and its always on time except when i was pregnant 2x and when i was on the depo shot where i bled for 2 yrs straight this is nothing like that. For some reason i started my period on time and ive had it for 9 days now. It started out like usual really light for the first 2 days then heavy a day and since then its been really light but i stop bleeding for a couple of hrs then when i wipe after using the bathroom theres light pink blood on it. its not bad enough for a pad or anything… I just wanted to know if anyone had any ideas of what could be going on. Thanks

    • marie November 10, 2012, 8:31 am

      I’m on the same boat. My cycle started 10/22 stopped on 10/27 been seeing blood when I wipe since 10/30 until now.

  • Holly October 31, 2012, 9:49 pm

    Hi, i am holly and i am 18. my problem is that I haven’t had a period in a year.. I have shown no signs of having one either. I am on no birth control, I rarely stress, I exercise normally I’m about 5’0 and I weigh 165 so I know it’s nothing to do with my weight. I mean I’m hence rally happy? The only thing is I don’t have a period and sometimes when I got to have intercourse with my fiancé I have a REALLY hard time staying wet? And most of the time it’s hard to get it in? (this problem recently started a few months after my period problem. I use to be fine with being wet and getting it in) also since I haven’t been having a period I’ve quit using protection. But I am now getting HORRIBLE hot flashes all the time now and random pains in my lower stomach. Do you have any idea of what might be going on? :/

  • Kita October 31, 2012, 8:09 pm

    Hi,

    So, over the course of the summer (from about June to September) I wasn’t getting my period at all. But in early October, I suddenly got it and have had it for three weeks going on four. I was just wondering, if you haven’t had a period for a long time and then suddenly get it, is it normal for it to be this long? Its not all that heavy, but it’s definitely there.

  • helen October 31, 2012, 6:26 pm

  • Claudia October 31, 2012, 3:17 pm

    Hi, I’m a fourteen year old girl with extremely irregular periods. I started menstruating at 12, and it was very light. But I didn’t have a period again until three months later, still light. Then about three months later I get the heaviest period ever, and its been like that ever since. But I’m also just now getting cramps and menstrual pains. Please help me!

  • Jenny October 31, 2012, 5:33 am

    Hi, I’ve had long periods for years (I’m 26) but never tracked them. I recently started using a mobile app to do this and realised that I regularly have periods that last up to 3 weeks (including days with spotting, then becoming heavier again unpredictably), I usually have a two week or three week break and then it starts again. I’m using the Implanon implant for contraception, and have been for 4 years (just got another one last year) and before that I had regular periods as I was using the patch. Could this be related to the implant? Is it normal? Thanks, Jenny

  • Hestie October 30, 2012, 1:31 am

    Hi My name is Hestie.

    I am very concerned about my period. For about the last year i have had my period constantly. I dont bleed for maybe 3-4 days out of the month, the rest of the time im bleeding very heavy. i dont know what to do anymore. i went to my doctor abour six months ago and he said that its because of stress. This can not be the reason. i just want to add that i had one of my overies removed when i was about 18. I am so tired and weak because of all the blood that im am losing. What can be the cause of this and what must i do. i am 25 and ive never been pregnant before and i am also not pregnant now.

    Thanks

  • Les October 29, 2012, 4:20 pm

    Hi. I am 31 years old. I have 2 boys…6 & 2. I have had my period since the age of 12 &, unless I was pregnant, never ever missed it. I missed my period completely last month! I finally got it towards the end of this month. It’s been awful. I bled heavy for the first 2 days & then it stopped & was followed by a little brownish blood, extremely painful migraines, body chills & cold sweats, pain down my spine & lower back. I slept for 2 days…so weak & tired. Total loss of appetite. The headaches & body aches are gone as of yesterday but I’ve still been feeling low on energy & kinda dizzy & lightheaded. Any ideas on what it could be?!? Thank you!

  • Jade October 29, 2012, 8:52 am

    About 3 months ago I was a day late, I finally came on but had days when I stopped bleeding, the following month I was a day early but finished day early and had brown discharge 2 days later and this month I was a day early again and stopped belling for a day. I’m on the pill and me and my partner have reagular sex… Any advice would be great x

    Hi I am 19 years old. For the last year I have been missing my period for about 3 months and then I get my period and then it will come every month for a couple months and then won’t have it for awhile. I have a little pain in my abdomen sometimes and I am for sure not pregnant. I can’t go into the doctor. What should I do?

  • Rena October 28, 2012, 7:21 pm

    Hello ladies,
    I’m a 22 year old healthy girl, I’m engaged and have regular sexual relationships with my fiance. The last 2 months ,my menstrual cycle has been messed up. My cycle became a 39-day cycle. And I was 28 days for 95% of the times in my life. I finally got my period this month and it was just spotting for a day,the next day in the morning heavy blood. And now in the afternoon it’s brown, like dirty brown and thick,no more red blood as I always have the 3 first days. It’s like my period ended in 2 days. I’ve never seen this. Should I be worried? How could I count my ovulation day?
    I would appreciate an answer before I go to a gynecologist.

    Best Regards, Rena

  • Caitlyn October 26, 2012, 9:25 pm

    Hi!
    I just want to get some worrying off my shoulders.
    I’m 19 years old.. Let me just state that I am in no circumstances pregnant. I haven’t had sex at ask so I know for a fact that I’m not pregnant. :)

    But it started about 2 months ago. I’ve had regular periods since I started in middle school, my periods would always be about 4-5 weeks apart from each other but that was regular for me. But 2 months ago I completely missed my period, looked up to see if it could just be normal and so I stopped stressing about it. The next month I had my periods right when I was supposed to, so I was happy of course. And now this month comes and I’m about 1-2 weeks late for my period. Its frustrating only because I went through this just 2 months ago. Is my period just going to be late since my cycle is kind of thrown all over since I did miss my period 2 months ago?
    I just don’t have any solutions or thoughts, anyone willing to help?
    Thank you..

    Hi! I started college in August, had a normal period then, and then my cycle started getting weird. I’m seventeen, a virgin, and I started having periods when I was ten. Last month, my period was a week early. This month, it’s over a week late and still not here. It’s really starting to freak me out. Is this at all normal?

    • DP Nguyen October 21, 2012, 11:11 pm

      You’re in college, and if you are under a lot of new stress, it’s pretty normal for your period to be a little unbalanced. As long as you are having a period every month, you don’t have anything to be worried about.

    • Lisa October 12, 2012, 4:28 pm

      hmm how old were you when you first started your period? it could be because your just still young i had and have irregular periods…when i was 19 irregular periods all the time it felt like i had 2 periods in 1 month…and once you get older it gets better…i would advise you to keep a period diary and keep tract of when you bleed and for how long for about 3 months and then consult you doctor…good luck! =)

Now it is October 7th and still nothing. I had some problems last year also where i missed a couple cycles, but nothing to be worried about (It was a very stressful time for me).

  • Rachel October 5, 2012, 5:32 am

    Hi, I have always had irregular periods since I first stated when I was 13. Then one time I had my period and it was the normal flow for the normal days, then all of a sudden I am on my period again just 6 days later.. Is this normal? I am a little worried and concerned! Should I be freaking out awaiting the response from the dr? Im not a young child anymore, and I am trying to get pregnant, so this causes me to be a little more concerned than ever.

  • Lauren October 4, 2012, 12:34 pm

    Hi, I am on birth control and I decided to keep taking it to delay my period (So instead of taking the 7 sugar pills at the end of the pack I started a new pack right away..) And I spoke to the pharmacist before this and she told me it is normal to have some spotting for a few days if I do that, however it’s been a week or just over a week and I am still spotting…And I am also feeling a little bit of those pms cramps, llike the ones I usually get a couple days before getting my period. Is this all normal?
    This is the first time I use birth control pills to delay my period…

    • Melissa October 3, 2012, 11:29 pm

      Also, I do have cysts on at least one ovary, not sure about the second. Would this have anything to do with the feeling of menstrual cramps?

  • Rainbow Galz October 3, 2012, 9:40 pm

  • Diana October 3, 2012, 4:30 pm

    Hello,
    Thanks for the insight, but i have a question or i may say a concern. I have been as they say Regular all my life.this month all of the sudden i only bleed really heavy out of the norm for me for just 2 days.and that last day i must say that i had and accident at home and literally had to throw my under clothes away and take off my sleeping gown over a sneeze! if you get what i trying to say.and then all i did was spot after that .mind you i am only 32 years old I am truly worried what makes it worst is that at this point i don’t have health insurance to go see a doctor .I would really appreciate it if you could give any advice..Thanks!

  • Alexandria October 2, 2012, 6:32 am

    I have took three pregnancy test in the past week. 2 were the cheaper ones and one was the more expensive ones. I’m not a week late on my period. I’m never late,always on time give or take a few days. My last period started o n August 26 and lasted two weeks. Due to my birth control. I haven’t took my birth control in month me and my boyfriend have sex almost on a daily bases and we don’t use protection. I went to the doctors on the 12 because of my two week period and he didn’t know what to think of that. He did a pregnancy test on me and it came back negative. I then went to the an made a appointment at Gynecologist for the following Monday and told him what went on with my period. They did what i guess is called an ultrasound from inside my Uterus to make sure everything was right. Everything came back normal,but he warned me five times before i left to be careful about getting pregnant. That was three weeks ago. Could I be pregnant?or do i need to go back to my gynecologist and see whats going on?I’m healthy and everything checked out normal.

  • Sammantha September 27, 2012, 11:15 pm

    +i my name is sam . I had my period aeptember 5 and I was due to start again swptember 25th and havent yet. I have taken quizs,and deacribed my aymptoms and they all say its highly possible that im pregnant. I took a pt but it said negative. Is it possible that im pregnant and I took the test too early? Im rwpulse to ceetain smells and food now. My breasts are sensitive but more so the nipples than anything. I feel bloated and quesy but with no period to follow. Im tired more often than usual and my bf says that he thinks I am? Can you help me figure this lout? If im not pregnant then what could it be?

    Plz help im worried

    • Alexandria October 2, 2012, 6:29 am

      It sounds like you could be,but if you are it would probably be to early to tell. Those are all symptoms that occur 1-2 weeks after conception. Even though pregnancy test claim to show positive even after the first day of your missed period that’s not correct. A pregnancy detects the hormone Hcg which is release after the egg implants itself into the uterus wall. This generally becomes present within two weeks after the egg inplants. Generally cramping and light spotting is present when this happens. You can either wait two more weeks and take another test or go see a doctor.Either way seeing a doctor is your best bet.

  • Rebecca September 27, 2012, 11:58 am

    I have a question. I always start the same time every month, I am 28 years old and my husband and I have been TTC. My cyles last 5-6 days and I started on the 7th and ended on the 9th of Sept., we had intercourse since then, and now 2 weeks after I ended my cycle and 2 wks before I am supposed to start another one, I spotted for a day, then a light thin flow (not like a menstral) for a day, and then spotted again and that was it. What could that be? I have been real moody, emotional, and getting hot flashes, and tired by like 6pm… This has never happened to me before…

  • koyal September 27, 2012, 7:56 am

    i m having periods since 8 years ,bt this month i found a change that i had periods 2 times after a duration of 15 days..so is it going to be the same every month or it is just for this month only.and what are the causes for such irregularity??

  • Nell September 26, 2012, 11:25 pm

    I havent had a full period since june 2012.. I went to the dr in july because I was a month late and had only spotted twice throughout the whole month.they did a pg test and I wasn’t pg,or they possibly couldn’t tell yet because it had only been a month late. Well since then I still haven’t started my period,but for the last month(maybe month and a half) i have been spotting here and there very very light.i have been experiencing some cramping in my lower abdomin,and back pain. I have always had a pretty heavy flow that lasts exactly 7days since i was 9 years old,and even after i had my daughter 2years ago.(i had my period for the first 2and a half months of pregnancy with my daughter. Can you tell me what could possibly be going on???

  • Lace September 26, 2012, 9:50 pm

  • EEJ September 25, 2012, 12:27 am

    Hi, I’m 22 years old. I have irregular menstruation ever since I start my period when I’m 12 y/o. but when I became 16y/o, I then have an almost normal cycle since i am having my period monthly unlike before that sometimes I didn’t had a period for a month or two. Last year, (2011) I tried a different panty liner with the ANION, and then I started having irregular menstruation. since June or July 2012, I only had small blood clots when I pee as I sign that I am having my period. There were no stain in my panties, not even a little, but my period goes with my pee. I don’t know what’s wrong with my period. I hope you can help me. I don’t even know if I should consult a doctor, or just wait for my period to be back to normal. And, what kind of specialist/doctor do I have to see?
    I know you’ll be more than willing to attend this message, and I thank you for that :)

    Hello, I’m 21 and I’ve always had irregular periods. Sometimes 2 months will pass until I have one. But its been 3 months now and its starting to worry me. I know I’m not pregnant but don’t know what it could be or if there’s anything to even worry about since I’m use to being irregular. Should I be concerned? I know my best option would be to go see a doctor but I honestly don’t have the money to go right now. Please help me with some advice!

  • Irene September 20, 2012, 3:43 pm

    I am a little confused right now. I am 30 I have four children with the youngest being six. At my last birth I had a c section and had hulka clip placed on my Fallopian tubes. My last three cycles have been crazy one was two day early the next was one day early but it was real light and kinda pinkish for about the first three days and this one came four days early and seems to be regular but not to much regular for me, I usually am a heavy blessed but this one is not as heavy as normal. I have had the same sex partner for some time and we always have sex unprotected. Is there anything to be worried about. According to some articles I’ve read on the Internet , an early period could be an early sign of pregnancy…..help me please

  • Sabrina September 19, 2012, 1:56 pm

    Hello. I’m hoping someone can help me, because I am freaking out a little! I am 18 years old, almost 19, and have had periods ever since I was 10 years old. When I first got them, they were regular and 7 days long with a heavy flow, but as I got older they have been regular still, but now only last 5 days with heavy bleeding. This has been happening ever since I was about 14 years of age. Just recently though, I was supposed to get my period on the 7th of September 2012 (it came on the 6th) and it lasted 5 days just like always. But now (it’s the 19th of September), and I got another period started today with light cramps. This is the first time that I have had two periods in one month, and I’m a little worried! This period was not supposed to come until October 4th, but it’s September 19th! I’m still a virgin, and nothing has changed out of my lifestyle! Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated! I really hate doctors, but if it is something very serious, I will most definitely go! Thank you!

I’ve been taking the lo loestrin and it hasn’t really changed anything but I recently missed my period when I was scheduled to have it, and I’ve never missed a period before while regularly taking my birth control. What could that mean? That I’m pregnant?

  • Joanne September 18, 2012, 5:39 pm

    Hello, I just turned 24 and my period has always been regular. It normally lasts no longer than 4-5 days, but this past month is lasted for a full 7 days. Almost a week later I went to use the bathroom and I noticed a spot of blood on the tissue. Two days after that the same thing occured. It hasn’t happened since and it has been about a week and a half. Does this mean that I could be pregnant?

  • Shana September 18, 2012, 1:23 pm

Well the bleeding stopped for a couple of days and now it’s back to spotting again. I’m so tired of this. How long does it take for the depo hormones to leave my and is there any way to stop the bleeding completely?

    Last month August 1st – 5th, 2012 would of been my week to get my
    period but it never came. I took a prego test a couple of weeks later After no arrival and it
    Read negative. So I waited some more…a week after waiting took another prego test still popping negative. Along with abdominal pains in lowers stomach and thats it is now September 16th, 2012 and still no period. Record of 43 days late. But last time this happened a year ago with strong abdominal pains and I was 33 days late..but my period eventually arrived. If I haven’t gotten my period at all this time. and I’m not prego then what would be the problem and best solution to this?

    Hello my period’s are always regular and on time. My husband and I are trying to conceive and it’s been difficult. I was supposed to get my period on august 31st and it was 5 days late and we thought for sure we had gotten pregnant. But on September 5th I went to the bathroom and blood starting coming out I assumed it was my period. As each day went on my period was lighter than normal i never once filled up a tampon like i always do on the first three days of my period it was light pink and red and also brown. I also didn’t experience cramps like I normally do. This struck me and my husband as odd because even when I was 10 days late in June it was a heavy period like normal. Is there a chance I still could be pregnant or was that just a light period which would be a first for me?

    • DP Nguyen September 12, 2012, 10:49 pm

      Yeah, it is possible that you are pregnant, and the light period could just be implantation bleeding. I would take a home pregnancy test to see.

  • annie September 11, 2012, 6:48 pm

    I haven’t had a period since i was 17. I’m now 24

    • DP Nguyen September 11, 2012, 10:49 pm

      You need to go see a gynecologist to figure out why you have not had a period in so long!!!!

  • Catalaya September 10, 2012, 4:34 am

    Hi!!! I’m 27 years old and I was pregnant last year then I gave birth to a still born so we are trying to get pregnant again a year later, I was so happy coz I missed my period for 6 wks but then in the morning when I woke up I had my periods could there be somthing wrong with me???? pls help!!!! :(

    • DP Nguyen September 12, 2012, 12:19 am

      I am so sorry to hear about your stillborn. Have you talked to your doctor? Were you pregnant during the time you missed your period? Sometimes, stillborns happen for no known reason and people are able to get pregnant again and have normal babies. Have hope.

    Hey so my girlfriend and I thought she was pregnant so she had went to the emergency clinic to get plan b. She told me it had worked and she had her cycle this week. She said she was done today or yesterday but she is still feeling extreme stomach pain and we don’t know what to do about it. Can you help?

    Hello!
    Usually a week before my period , when i have sex i see blood.. is this normal?
    Thxs

    • holly October 24, 2012, 12:11 pm

      generally when you have sex and you see blood its because the sex you are having is too rough for your cervix or the lining for your cervix is thin

  • Erica August 30, 2012, 2:49 pm

    Hello,
    I have been having unprotected sex ever since July and my cycle is normally abnormal but I keep track of my cycles with a cycle tracker on my phone. And my cycle wasn’t suppose to come until the 24th but on the 20th I had spotting…the same on the 21st but only blood when I wipe….and on the 22nd it was still light with a little cramping…..and on the 223rd through the 26th it was light and on the 27th it went off. During all of this I may have went through 5 pads in which none of them were full at all. So my cycle was never heavy like it used to be and it was for an entire week…is this the result of implantation bleeding?

  • Amber August 29, 2012, 10:31 pm

    Im 24 n I have had irregular periods my whole life due to my weight and diabetes. I was on the depo shot until may I had a period n june n a three day one in july. I am having pregnancy symptoms such as fatigue, cramping, sore nipples, naesua n heartburn, my abdomen is hard n hurts, apetife increase and ive been wanting food I donteat that often, n a messed up sleep pattern. I have taken 3 different test 1 four weeks ago then another a week after and one yesterday and all have come back negative.

    • Alexandria October 2, 2012, 6:20 am

      The shot has known side effects for when people come off of it. It was been known that it will delay periods or cause periods to not come at all for months. There are other known side effects also. If your also severely over weight that will effect your periods also. I’d make an appointment to see a doctor. If your first pregnancy test was four weeks ago and you just took another,if you were pregnant it should of showed that a positive,but you could of gotten a false negative.As for the symptoms they are all associated with pregnancy,but if you’re worrying about it then that can also trick your brain and body into feeling that way.I’d go see a doctor though just to be sure .

  • Clblack August 29, 2012, 10:52 am

    This is an update on my current situation. My period has been on since August 11th and on the 26th I became weak and lightheaded. I went to the er the next day and thank God I didn’t need a blood transfusion. They did give me fluids and gave me a diagnosis of heavy periods and told me to follow up with my ob/gyn. Well that appt is not until next weds. I havent been able to go to work, im tired all tje time and and cant do nething. I hope the dr can make the bleeding stop or at least tell me why I have been bleeding for so long.

    Hi
    I had my tubes tied in feb 2010 after my third child. My periods havd been regular until june and july 2012, didnt get one. On august 3rd it came on but was so lite I only needed lite. It wnt off the next day. On august 6th the same thing happened. Then on august 11th it officially came on. It was heavy and i’ve been passing clots I know I can get pregnant in my tubes but im in no pain, jus an occasional lite pain in lower belly and maybe mild back pain at times. Has anyone else been through this?

  • katelyn July 25, 2012, 2:23 pm

    Hi im katelyn and im 17 almost 18 I`ve been missing a few of my periods lately it`s been about 5 or 7 months, I though it would come back after my doctor gave me this pill that would help boost my period back up and I only had to take it for ten days and it help for about a few periods then I havent had another period after a while then Ihad another one about 5 or 7 months ago . Also I never had sex at all, so im definitely not pergnant, do you think I should make a doctor visist or does it not sound serious ?

  • Vanessa July 24, 2012, 1:20 pm

    I have always had heavy periods, I mean heavy. Like I have to change evey 2 or 3 hours. It was always this way so I thought it was normal. Can it be normal? I started when I was 11 and I am now 26. Also for the last 3 years my period switched as in the first 4 or 5 days are extremely light( practically nothing) and then it all seems to come out in on the 6th and 7th day. Is that extremely unusual to have your heavy days at the end?
    Thanks for your time.

    I lost my period being on heavy pain killers. I since got treatment for my addiction. I got my period back in march, then I get pregnant. Since being preg I have had bleeding. I go to the ER and they said my hcg was 2012 so I was still preg. I am bleeding again tho so I’m scared I’m mc again but it’s much like the last bleeding I had. My question is if I lost my period all that time could I still have it while preg cuz my body needs to get rid of all that stuff????

  • Lizeth June 27, 2012, 6:04 pm

  • sasha June 23, 2012, 12:55 pm

    Hi I’m 12 and I just started my period 4months ago. I’m really scared and everything because like there’s so much blood! I use about 4 pads each day and it doesn’t help. Some how blood always leaks 2 my underwear or bedsheets. Dunno if it’s d pads I use of anything, so could u recommend a pad dat u know effectively works. Also, most times the blood is really heavy and I use like 7 pads in one day I just don’t know if it’s normal. Help me please. Also what can I do to make it hurt less. Last month I had a one week late period and I’m 100% NOT pregnant I haven’t gone any where near boys so what could be d cause of dat? Please answer I need help. It’ll be great if this wasn’t posted on the website.

    • Jessi October 4, 2012, 5:50 pm

      Hi Sasha,
      I’m not a doctor, but I might be able to help. I have dealt with heavy periods most of my life (I’m 34), and here’s what I’ve found:
      Tampons seem to be a little more reliable when it comes to heavy periods. I usually have to use the super absorbancy for the first day or two. You can use these with a pad or panty liner for extra protection.
      If you’re not comfortable with tampons, you can try the overnight pads with wings. The wings seem to help keep things neater and they keep the pad from bunching up, which can also lead to leaks. The overnight pads are also longer, so they cover a little more.
      As for pain, ibuprofen (like motrin or advil) really helps, and so does a heating pad.
      I hope this helps!

  • maybelline June 11, 2012, 6:04 pm

    hi I’m 22 years old and my periods have been pretty much the same until I want to say November of 2011. Since then my periods have skipped every other month. I left the reasons due to me gaining weight since September. ( I’ve gained like 20 pounds lol) but secretly I am trying to conceive so would you know how I could go about calculating my ovulation days since my period has come on every other month ( except for Jan and Feb AF came on both months).

  • Rahul Kumar April 21, 2012, 3:51 pm

    Hello!! My girlfriend skipped her periods a couple of months back. We were concerned she might be pregnant though we just had oral sex & probably could have undergoing the consequences of carelessness that time; fortunately, she did have 1 after skipping 1 period :)
    But immediately the next time; i.e; this time she has been undergoing heavy bleeding from past 5 days. Mostly her periods end by this time but till now she has been suffering heavy bleeding & lower abdominal pain. We again had oral sex some 3 days before she began with her periods & just before the starting of the periods we both lost our virginity. To be on the safer side, she had a contraceptive pill on the 1st day of her period but still very concerned as to what could have been the possible reason of this irregularity or “chaos”. Please update regarding the same issue. Thank you for the same :)

  • Alayna March 15, 2012, 11:37 pm

    Hi ma’am.
    I just turned 18 and I am a virgin, so I am 100% sure that I am not pregnant haha.
    My periods have always been a little irregular, mostly just in their timing, but it would always be heavy and last 5-7 days. But… In the last year, I have had extremely irregular periods. I think I might have had 6 period in 12 months and they were all extremely light. With only 2 being in the last 6 months. I have no other symptoms, nothing hurts, nothing is swollen, etc. I’ve made an appointment with my doctor but I’m scared. Could I be infertile? What could be wrong?

    • Someone October 21, 2012, 9:09 am

      Hey hi, am 20 years old and am from Asia. I had been a really heavy period 2 or 3 years ago. But recent 2 years my period has became a light but i think no need to worry about that. It is not so extremely light. For this month, it has been too ultra light. It is like nothing. Now I am little worrying about that. I study in shanghai also fro another country. I have just came back month ago. In my country my period was totally normal, timing was regular. I could lose a 3 kilograms thankfully. Now i considered if there is any relationship between period and weight. 3 years ago i gained a 10 kilograms in a 5 month, then my period became a lighter than before. In here, is it normal? Is there any relationship between period and weight?
      Thanks for ur time.

      • DP Nguyen October 21, 2012, 11:10 pm

        Yes, there can be a correlation between periods and weight. For example, some women with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), they often experience irregular periods. However, when some of these women lose weight, their periods become more regular. But because your periods are very light and then becoming ultra light, I would highly advise that you go see a medical doctor to help you figure out what is causing your light periods.

  • aderemi March 2, 2012, 7:22 pm

      There are many reasons why you could have missed your period. If you miss your period again this month, please go to the doctor.

      • Alexandria October 2, 2012, 6:10 am

        Even though your boyfriend didn’t cum inside you,as far as you know. Pre-cum is a known factor to cause pregnancy,but you had you’re period after that. If you haven’t had unprotected sex since then i doubt your pregnant. You could always go see your doctor,or wait a little longer and see if your period comes. Try not to stress over it,because stress is also known for messing with your period.

  • michelle February 15, 2012, 2:28 pm

    yes hi my problem is that i’ve been noticing for 3 months now that my period is not coming normal. example in dicember i got it like in between the 1st and the 4th. on january i got it about the 9 or 10 and now on february i havent had it yet. and i’m not pregnant. i’m wondering that after each period it comes like 5 days after each period i have on each month. cansomebody help me with my question

    • DP Nguyen February 18, 2012, 10:44 pm

      I really wouldn’t worry, even though it’s not coming on the exact same day. You should try using a period app on your iPhone or smartphone, if you have one. But as long as you have it once every month, then you’re fine. Sometimes, stress and emotions can make our periods not as perfectly regular as we want. But yeah, I don’t think there is anything wrong with you.

      • Ashley Hudnall August 19, 2012, 1:13 am

        Hi my names Ashley, I was put on birth control about a year ago I have been on about three or four different kind, one was to high in horomones for me they tried switching me to a lower dose they ended up giving me a higher does in birth control pills… Ever since then I haven’t had a period I am really scared that I won’t have another period and that I won’t be able to have kids when I am ready! I also had breast leakage for a few months then it would come and go … It is currently back right now! If you could tell me what you think about my situation it would be much appreciated ! I had been freaking out for months! My obgyn said It my be thyroid issues but I haven’t been back since to have blood work

  • Smano February 13, 2012, 5:20 am

    Hi,
    I’m 21 years old going on 22 next month. since dec 2011 i’v been experiencing light periods that last for about 3-4 days. Normaly my periods would last for 5-6 days with heavy flow for the first 2 that reqired upto 5 pads.
    In the months of dec and jan due to gal stones i had been taking stronge pain killers.
    Can pain killers affect your period? if yes how long will it take for my period to get normal again?

    • DP Nguyen February 18, 2012, 11:12 pm

      I don’t think pain killers would affect your pregnancy like that. It may be the gal stones and the stress thats making you have lighter periods. I would go see a doctor or call their office and get their advice, though. If you are worried. A normal period can last between 3-5 days though.

  • normal menstrual cycle January 5, 2012, 2:35 pm

    Thanks, read everything!
    After all the information, still have a question..
    Are blood clots during your period normal? Even if it is a light flow?
    Would be great if you can help clear that up.
    Many thanks!

    • holly October 24, 2012, 12:04 pm

      generally i would say yes, because you have the lining of the uterous shedding or what most women reffer to as blood clots its completely normal.
