I've had my period for 2 to 3 years now and it is still irregular. Is this normal?

No but common: This is a very common problem. Talk to a doctor about starting on a birth control pill to get things under control. For many young women, the irregular periods also cause a lot of cramping.

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

I've had my period for 4 years, & it's still irregular! Now I get it a lot more frequently, but I still don't get it once a month. Is this normal?

I've had my period for 4 years, & it's still irregular! Now I get it a lot more frequently, but I still don't get it once a month. Is this normal?

It can be: Not everyone gets their period every 28 days. Don't worry overly much if you get yours more or less often than this. Most women do NOT get theirs like clockwork. :)

Yes: There are many different ways to regulate it by taking one of various different types of hormones. But the first step is to find out why they are irregular - pcos, thyroid abnormality, uterine polyp, fibroids, etc. They an appropriate treatment can be given to make you more comfortable.

I got my period two weeks early and im a virgin is that normal? I have had my period for almost 6 years now

Likely yes: Unfortunately, a history of regular periods does not mean all of your periods will be right on time. Occasional break through bleeding or mid cycle bleeding can occur. If it just happens occasionally, it doesn't need to be treated unless it bothers you; then a bc pill may be in order.

No not normal: Your hormones are not working correctly, you need to see your gyn or a gyn for an exam, blood work and an ultrasound, and often your periods can be regulated with birth control pills or other hormones, I see this not infrequently in my patients.

Irregular periods: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections ; hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit.

It: It is possible to get pregnant from sperm present pre-ejaculation fluid. I would recommend that you perform a few pregnancy tests to rule this out. With irregular cycles you may not ovulate regularly. Also with a new exercise program, this can affect ovulation. You may wish to use a more effective birth control method than the withdrawal method if you are not ready to bring a child into this world yet. This would also regulate your cycle.

Spotting: Spotting can be normal at any point while on birth control pills. It is usually due to an imbalance in hormones or missed pills or a change in time that the pill is taken. If the spotting persists you should be evaluated by your doctor to rule out a pregnancy and to consider a change in pills with a different hormonal make up. Take care.

Tubal ligation: Tubal ligation simply prevents (usually) the ovum and sperm from meeting. The cycle itself is governed by hormonal fluxuation. Do you get regular exam (i.e. PAP) as bleeding is not always menstrual and could reflect uterine issue,

Hello.: Hello. After you have become menopausal (a year without menses), it is not normal to bleed. You need to see your gynecologist. Take care.

Sometimes: Sometimes hormone causes can cause dysfunctional uterine bleeding which is a possibility. Another possibility is that some women get increased secretions at the time of ovulation. If you are concerned about infection you should have a gynecological evaluation. If you are at all worried about pregnancy, take a urine pregnancy test. Also please be sure that you are up to date on your pap test. If you get increased bleeding, pain, or new symptoms then please be seen immediately.

The concern here: Should be a pregnancy. Take a blood pregnancy test to rule out a pregnancy including a tubal pregnancy and intraabdominal pregnancy.
