I weigh 38 Kgs I'm turning 19 and 5'5" ft tall. No period for 4 months now, and I always faint and when I do I feel like dying, there are times that its hard for me to breathe?

Doctor can check now: If one's regular doctor is not available, the ER can help now. Presuming this is not a known condition already under treatment, a teen who is 65 inches and only 84 pounds and faints frequently, needs to be evaluated now... the local hospital can help, and can transfer to a specialty center if help is needed in diagnosing and treating the condition. ...Read more

Height: Eating right- fruits, vege and water along with exercise are very important to bringing your weight to where it should be. It is not easy as our society is based on marketing bad things to us constantly, but you can do it. You have heard and seen the consequences of obesity. You likely will not grow any taller. You have 2-3 years after your 1st period to grow then your done growing. ...Read more

Breasts: Breasts come in all sizes and they are all normal. Even small breasted women can breastfeed. For you this sounds like a body image/cosmetic concern. You should see a plastic surgeon if it is a problem for you. ...Read more

I'm 18 and about 5'9"-5'10" and weigh 232lbs. Can not having a period be because of my weight??

Unlikely: If you have missed your period, suggest you check a urine pregnancy test if its over 7-10 days late. You can miss periods early in life uf you just started to menstruate, but I am assuming you had regular periods for a few years by now ...Read more

I weigh 280 and I and don't have a period. Is there something that I can take to get a period?

Get evaluated: You do not mention how old you are or if you have ever had a period or if you had them and they are irregular.
First thing you need to do is make sure your lack of periods is not due to pregnancy assuming you have had periods.
Polycystic ovary syndrome, (pcos), is problem that can affect a woman's hormone levels, periods, and ovulation. You need to find out why you donĀ“t have them, and correct it. ...Read more

Irregular menses: Make sure you count from the first day of one period to the first day of the next. That tells you how many days are in your cycle. Longer cycles mean that ovulation occurs later-about 2 weeks before your next period. If you are trying to get pregnant, irregular cycles decrease the number of ovulations that you have during the year. Pregnancy is still possible, though. ...Read more

I weigh 80kg and I am 179cm tall, I do a lot of sport but had to stop for a long period because of an injury, am I overweight?

Maybe: Your body mass index is 25, which is just at the lower range for "overweight". This may not be the case for you, as your weight may be related to a higher degree of muscle mass.

I have included a link below for further information on body mass index.

Hormonal issues: Iron deficiency is not unusual in young women especially if they have heavy periods. Iron rich foods (leafy green veggies) and iron supplements can help. If sexually active get apregnancy test. Your weight and irregular periods could point to thyroid problems or polycystic ovaries.

I weigh 257lbs and am 5'7 I don't get a regular period the longest has been 4 years. I have had a pap smear and everything was normal. Your thoughts?

My thoughts: Must be obvious to you. Your serious overweight is clearly the answer. Unfortunately the hypothalamus (a computer in the brain) is part of the cause because of biochemical changes in it. The worst dietary offender is sugar in all its forms and even sweeteners. ...Read more

Do you weigh more on your period due to water retention? Thanks!

Possible...: Mild fluctuation in weight from adjusting water content may occur during menstrual cycle, but would be about the same at the same phase of the cycle if your lifestyle remains constant. But in life reality, such expected fluctuation should bear any concern as long as functioning well in conducting personal & occupational chores & tasks for survival, growth, and continuation. ...Read more

I have bad period cramps and I took two aspirins 81mg, I weigh only about 80 pounds. I know it thins out your blood but do you think I will be ok?

Yes, dose is low: And should not cause bleeding unless you have a specific bleeding disorder. That dose is low and it is safe to take up to 325 to 500 mg per dose for short periods of time If you have bad cramps, you may also find that 1 naproxen/Aleve will give relief. If you regularly get cramps, I recommend that you start Rx as soon as menses begin, as it is easier to prevent cramps than after they arebad. ...Read more

Could my fatty liver be getting worse if I missed my period? I have lost 50 since march still weigh 270. Worried

Could my fatty liver be getting worse if I missed my period? I have lost 50 since march still weigh 270. Worried

Unrelated: A fatty liver reflects a metabolic syndrome hypercaloric over nutrition. Losing weight and exercising are the best ways to repair it. The absence of a period may change your weight a bit mostly due to fluid retention, but doesn't participate in the metabolic syndrome process. If you were in your 3rd trimester of pregnancy, then a fatty liver may be a concern. ...Read more
