Several possibilitys: 23 yo with no bc pills reported and first time for menstrual irregularity. This may be related to problems with the ovaries no longer functioning correctly; or it maybe you have a polyp in the uterus or 'fibroids' or less likely other tumors in the pelvis. Thyroid dysfunction or blood disorders must be included in the possible causes. Most commonly, it is hormonal irregularity. So see md soon. ...Read more

I'm 34/F I've noticed that in the past month I have gained weight. My habits haven't changed. Could something be wrong? It's not due to menstruation.

Age food & exercise: As humans approach middle age (welcome to the club!), our metabolisms slow down. So even with the same food intake and the same amount of activity (which I assume has not changed because your "habits haven't changed") you can gain weight. If diabetes, obesity, or other medical problems run in your family, they could be starting to come into play. You actually need MORE exercise as u age, not less! ...Read more

More: Women need more iron in their diet when they menstruate becuase iron in the blood is lost thru menstruation. A diet supplement with 325 mg of iron sulfate is a good idea. Have your dr do a complete blood count and iron profile to determine your iron status. If low, he may suggest iron supplementation. Meat (red) is a good source of iron. ...Read more
