Ive Had My Period For 2 To 3 Years Now And It Is Still Irregular Is This Normal

Shouldn't happen: It shouldnt happen. It is possible that your body is still 'adjusting' to the new birth control pill, and you may wait for another month to see if this stabilizes, but if it persists - this pill may not be best for you, and you may need to try a different pill. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Once : Once a Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud is placed, you have a less than 1% chance of getting pregnant. It is a very effective form of birth control. Many women who use the Mirena (levonorgestrel) will have light, irregular periods or no periods at all. Many choose this form of birth control just for this convenient side effect. It is not unhealthy for you to not have a period, but if it upsets you, discuss it with your doctor. You may want to choose a different form of birth control. ...Read more
I gave birth 5 months ago and have gotten my period for the last 3 months the firts 2 months it was normal as usual. But this month its been six days an im still on it I have never been with my period more than 4 days. What could it be?
Breast feeding?: Hormonal changes can create irregular cycles at first. Try not to worry too much. It is very rarely a problem. Oral contraceptives can help if not on them but the periods can be off for a while after delivery. If bleeding too heavy seek care, but it should normalize soon. Good luck. ...Read more
Can be: A common side effect of the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud is a change in the menstrual cycle. Half of women stop menstruating altogether once they have had the Mirena (levonorgestrel) for a year. Since it is an extremely effective form of birth control, it is unlikely you are pregnant.

I had my period for 5 days which is the usual. I have been spotting for the last 3 days since it ended is this normal?
More or less: What you described seems to fit with usual variations in menstrual cycles. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

I have the skyla IUD and usually everything is normal but, I just had a period 2 weeks ago and I just started again and it's very heavy. Concerns?
IUD check: Irregular bleeding is not rare with Skyla. Since the bleeding is heavy this time though feel for your string to make sure it is in the right place. If you can not feel the string then avoid intercourse without a condom and schedule a visit to have your doctor confirm the proper location. Most irregular bleeding with an IUD stops on its own without intervention. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have the mirena (levonorgestrel) for about 2 years now and I have a period every month my last period was 2 weeks ago and still having bad menstrual cramps is this normal? Could I possibly be pregnant?
Dislodged IUD: Menstrual periods are typically lighter and shorter, while on the Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD. If that is not the case, and in conjunction with severe cramps, the possibility of a dislodged IUD has to be considered. A transvaginal ultrasound may be helpful. A urine pregnancy test should be done, too. ...Read more
I'm 35 and had a tubal 13 years ago, my periods have always been normal except this time it has been going on for 2 weeks, is this normal?
Likely yes: The tubal has absolutely nothing to do with your period - not when it comes, not how long...Nothing. At 35 years old, you may simply not have ovulated and are having heavier bleeding. To be sure, check with your obgyn and do a pregnancy test just to be safe. Good luck - it's likely to resolve itself without any major treament. ...Read more
