Abnormal periods: The answer to why women have abnormal periods can be tricky. Depending upon your age, you menstrual periods occurring two times per month is hormone balance related. However, there may be growths within the uterus that can lead to the same issue. We can evaluate hormone levels, and look inside the uterus with a telescope to obtain a tissue sample.

Hormones a bit off?: A doctor can check to see if there is any worrisome medical issue, if a woman has mild menstrual-related symptoms. Many women have some variation of their periods or a missed period on occasion. Some women feel normal after a few days, but others do have bothersome symptoms and follow-up with their doctors. If the doctor wants to rule-out pregnancy, he can do a test, which is very accurate.

Common problem: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test . There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle.

"Nothing": Mother nature, at age 46, is sending a message that the "reproductive/menstrual cycle factory" is closing soon, also known as menopause. It is common for periods to be irregular and skipped. However, don't "skip" contraception until "the fat lady sings for six months or more"(no periods). As "change of life babies" are also very common.
