Hello there. I've been getting my period every two weeks for the last 3 months. I am sexually active, on a side note. Why would I get it so often?

Maybe not period: It might not be your period. See your GYN MD ASAP. Possibly some other mass causing the bleeding so often. Recall if the bleeding occurred about the same time as sexual activity and make note of this to report. Do not delay -- make the appointment-- tell them you are having this bleeding so frequently. Good Luck. (Be sure to stay hydrated and have enough iron in system) ...Read more

Getting my period every 2 weeks for a 5 months? How urgent is it to see a dr. Can i risk waiting? Cant afford insurance and don't qualify for medicaid

Getting my period every 2 weeks for a 5 months? How urgent is it to see a dr. Can i risk waiting? Cant afford insurance and don't qualify for medicaid

Vaginal bleeding: Perhaps you have vaginal bleeding (vb) that is not related to your cycle. Go to a gynecologist (g) and have an ultrasound done of your uterus to see if your bleeding is coming from a bleeding fibroid. Have the g go over your hormonal levels and ask for the g's comments. Excessive vb for 5 months is clearly not normal and it needs to be evaluated before you become severely anemic. Good luck. ...Read more

Im 19yo and i havepcos, im currently living abroad and taking birthcontrolpills prescribed by my doctor, im getting my period every 2 weeks, what's wrong?

Im 19yo and i havepcos, im currently living abroad and taking birthcontrolpills prescribed by my doctor, im getting my period every 2 weeks, what's wrong?

Wrong Pill: Patients with pcos have a lot of "hormonal background noise" that can cause irregular cycles. Low dose or tricyclic birth control pills are not optimal for these patients. They are effective in birth control, but not so much for cycle control. The effectiveness of your pill to control cycles can also be affected by other medications you are taking as well as some foods. ...Read more

I'm 18, I take my birth control pills everyday and I've been getting my period every 2 weeks for the last 2 months. Should I be worried? Cause I am.

I don't know that: you need to be worried, but it does make sense to contact your gynecologist, or whomever is prescribing the birth control pill. If you have been on them for 2 months or more, you should not be bleeding so often. There may be other birth control pills that might be better for your system. Your doctor will know best, and be able to help. ...Read more
