No! Not possible: Bleeding in pregnancy van never be a cycle. It is "bleeding in pregnancy". Ovulation cannot occur during pregnancy due to the hormonal environment. Additionally, a period is the shedding endometrium layer. This cannot occur in pregnancy. It is a very unfortunate medical myth that should be halted with education. All bleeding in pregnancy needs evaluation.

How to naturally lose buccal fat in a short period of time? For example, would going on a caloric deficit help fat loss?

Why would u want to?: Lose buccal fat? In the 60s it was common for models to have their cheeks reamed out to get that "Twiggy" look. They never got it back and started looking old at very young ages. Most of us need all the fat we can in our faces to avoid looking old prematurely. Many of us pay a lot to get fat put backwhere it has disappeared naturally in the face! Please cherish that young healthy face for us.

Comes when it does: Some women have delays or skip periods. There are hormone pills that can trigger a period when due, but you will just have to wait. It will happen when it happens. There are no herbs or diets that will trigger it unless it is ready to happen anyway.

How do I stop my period forever? Not for three months or a year, but forever! I would prefer naturally, but I want to know my choices regardless.

Surgery: Depo-provera will work, and if repeated every 12-13 weeks, will keep your period "away." Implanon is a device inserted under the skin for a year at a time, and will keep them away "permanently" if replaced at these intervals. A Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud will work for 5 years before it needs replacing. Endometrial ablation may stop periods, but is not always 100%. A hysterectomy is the only permanent method.

Pregnancy test?: 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.
