Take a preg test!: I am assuming that you are asking this question because you are sexually active and worried about possible pregnancy. If this is the case, then check a pregnancy test. If the test is negative, then the problem is that you are not ovulating regularly. When this occurs, your cycles are irregular and unpredictable, and sometimes absent. Weight gain can be the cause or the result what is going on. ...Read more

Variation on normal: What you described is likely a normal variation on your menstrual pattern. 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.

Late period with brown discharge followed by clear mucus?

Late period with brown discharge followed by clear mucus?

Check preg test: The color of the blood in your menstrual cycle is not useful or relevant. It reflects how long the blood has been sitting inside your uterus or at the back of your vagina. Red is new. Brown or black blood is older and the blood products have started to break down. Menstrual blood color is not something you need to pay attention to. If you are unsure if you are pregnant then check a test today. ...Read more

Blood??: Stop being so rough on yourself. I don't know if you use lubrication enough, if you have sharp nails and inadvertently nicked yourself and so have intravaginal bleeding (a scratch) vs intrauterine (the beginning of your menses. Just lay back and "pleasure yourself" until you find a good partner. ...Read more

If similar symptoms, need gyn eval to investigate cause. Hope this helps. Best of luck. Dr R ...Read more
