I was wondering if marijuana can affect my menstrual cycle because I smoke a lot daily and in the past I believe it's made my. A little irregular?

No one seems to know: I did some research and couldn't really find a good answer. I found lots of other people who asked this and various opinions expressed, but ultimately could not find a single scientific study on this. It's certainly possible it might, though many regular marijuana users don't have any problems and many who don't have irregular periods. You could stop for a few months to see if it gets better. ...Read more

I wear 3 corsets at a time (waist training) for about 20 hours a day and have been for a few months now. Could this affect my menstrual cycle?

I wear 3 corsets at a time (waist training) for about 20 hours a day and have been for a few months now. Could this affect my menstrual cycle?

Corsets create that: Hour glass look by squishing your internal organs and displacing them inward and upwards. They hurt your abdominal and chest organs primarily. The hip & pelvic bones tend to protect the pelvic organs. If the corsets are preventing you from eating or if you're seriously stressed out trying to achieve a look that isn't natural for you, they could affect your cycles indirectly. Not recommended! ...Read more

I haven't had my menstrual cycle yet this month, should I be concerned that I haven't had it yet? I haven't had sex.

Periods can vary: I would suggest you try not to worry about a late period. Since you have not had sex, the late period could be due to stress, lack of good nutrition, poor sleep, or many other causes. Some women do have variable periods without anything at all wrong with them. If you continue to be late, please see a physician to properly diagnose the problem, if any. ...Read more

I am 17 and my menstrual cycle isn't regular. I've my periods every 3 months. Is it fine if this happens?

Maybe okay: At 17, the communication between your pituitary gland that tells your ovaries what hormones to make is still maturing. It's possible that this is why your periods are irregular. It's also possible that extremes of weight such as too thin or too heavy can be a cause as well. Thyroid can also play a role. At some point, maybe by 18, if you're periods aren't regular, make an appt with gynecologist. ...Read more

Menstrual cycle is really painful every month and I can't take the pain anymore. What causes me to cramp so bad?

Menstrual cycle is really painful every month and I can't take the pain anymore. What causes me to cramp so bad?

Inflammation/bleed: Elevation of prostaglandins in the menstrual cycle is what causes the pain, alongside inflammation of the pelvic organs/tissues as well. Ibuprofen is the best medication for this. Sometimes women have endometriosis, however, and that can make periods more severe. Discuss this with your gynecologist if Ibuprofen doesn't help ease the pain. You may need more extensive treatment. Good luck! ...Read more
