U should see a GYN. ...Read more

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Abnormal: A normal menstrual period is defined as a menstrual flow that occurs every 21 to 35 days but can be normal up to every 60 days with a flow less than 7 days in duration. Anything outside this is considered abnormal. The first thing to always consider when abnormal is a pregnancy and a simple drug store test will help rule this out.

Either way, heavy prolonged bleeding can lead to anemia and I would advise you to be seen by a doctor versed in women's health for testing. ...Read more

Why have I gotten my period three times this month? Could it be because of a Plan B pill?

Why have I gotten my period three times this month? Could it be because of a Plan B pill?

Perhaps it is the: Plan B because morning after pills use an absurd amount of synthetic hormones and chemicals to knock your uterus into not getting pregnant. You will continue to have irregular spotting for the next few weeks while your cycle tries to reset itself. It is generally safer to stick with traditional contraceptive methods to keep your cycle regular and predictable. ...Read more

My tubes are tied and burnt yet my period came on three times this month can i be preganant im in my 40s?

Possible: Pregnancy is possible in your 40s but, after a tubal ligation, there are more likely causes of having 3 periods in 1 month than pregnancy. These include infections, abnormal cervical cells, 2 periods and bleeding mid-cycle due to ovulation, annovulatory bleeding, medicines, and several other diseases. You need to see your PCP or GYN for a full history and exam. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I'm really scared and I don't know what to do I have had my period three times this month. I'm on it right now and I have had sex this past Saturday.

Vaginal bleeding: "Don't know what to do"? It's easy: see a doctor ASAP! All unexplained vaginal bleeding needs professional exam and testing. At your age, an STD like gonorrhea or chlamydia is a good bet. Also, I wonder if you're pregnant; or maybe just breakthrough bleeding if you're on hormonal contraception. Stop having sex until you have seen the doctor. Good luck! ...Read more

Not likely: Depo-provera is one of the most effective forms of birth control, as long as you get the shot every 3 months as directed. Irregular or absent periods are an expected side effect. Failure rates are 1-3%. Anytime you suspect that you may be pregnant the best thing to do is to take home pregnancy test. They are cheap, reliable and available at any pharmacy. In minutes, you will have your answer. ...Read more

I took postinor 2 three times in a month and period is late. Keep having severe crumbs as if am menstruating but no blood flow. What is wrong with me?

I am 32 and for the last year have only been getting my period once every three months or so, what could be wrong? I have not had any abnormal stress, exercise, or pain. Have not had any other symptoms. The first few times it happened took a few pregnancy

The : The most likely answer is that you are not ovulating correctly. Ovulation sets the luteal phase, meaning that if you ovulate and do not get pregnant then a period starts due to the drop in progesterone. If you do not ovulate the luteal phase is abnormal, there is no drop in progesterone, and no signal goes to the uterus telling it there is no pregnancy. Pcos (polycystic ovarial syndrome) is a common reason for this, but other hormonal irregularities may be at play. You need a series of blood test including fsh, lh, tsh, t4, prolactin, fasting glucose and Insulin levels, dheas, testosterone (free and total), and sbg (sex binding globulin), you also need an ultrasound to view the uterine linning and the ovaries. Depending on these tests and weather you want to get pregnant right now or not would dictate your treatment plan. ...Read more

My period is three days late &I had sex alot of times last month &this month. I'm having pregnancy symptoms but I took a test &it said neg. What now?

Repeat: It isn't for sure negative until 2 weeks after last mensrual period because of varaibility of the date of ovulation. You have to have enough HCG to make the test turn. A blood test might be more sensitive and if you are pregnant, your test could turn positive before 2 weeks after 1st day of missed perioe ...Read more
