Hormonal imbalance: 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.

Period has been light. Normally lasts 7 days. This time three, stopped and started again. Now it's stopped again. What does this mean?

Sometimes it happens: Many women have occasional variation of their mucus discharge, some spotting between periods, a heavier period, a lighter period, a longer or shorter period, or even a missed period. Having one or two of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean there is a medical problem, but a visit to one’s primary care or ob-gyn doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. ...Read more

Period 23days late. 5 negative digital tests. Tested last three days ago, negative again. Could I be pregnant?

Period 23days late. 5 negative digital tests. Tested last three days ago, negative again. Could I be pregnant?

Highly unlikely: Many things can cause a delayed/late menstrual period. With 5 negative tests it is highly unlikely that you are pregnant. It is time to start looking into some of the other possibilities such as medications, diseases such as thyroid disease, diabetes/ insulin resistance, polycystic ovarian syndrome, or pituitary tumors, exercise, stress, weight change, or changes in your schedule. Hope this helps. ...Read more

My period only lasted two days instead of five. Could I be pregnant?

My period only lasted two days instead of five. Could I be pregnant?

Probably not: The fact that you had a period, although it was shorter than usual, makes it unlikely that you are pregnant. Most women have an usual period (shorter, longer, lighter, heavier) once in a while and it is not usually reason for concern. If you have had unprotected sex within the past month, it is probably a good idea to do a pregnancy test. ...Read more

What can cause a three week period? My periods are usually normal I did not have one the last two months but now this one has lasted 23 days

What can cause a three week period? My periods are usually normal I did not have one the last two months but now this one has lasted 23 days

A: A three week period can be caused by "dysfunctional uterine bleeding", which is when a patient's hormones are out of balance for stress on the body or other reasons, and the patient has a very heavy period, often after skipping a period. This usually goes back to normal. Irregular periods are more common in women with abnormal weight (too high or too low). If there is any question of pregnancy, then a pregnancy test should be checked of course. Older women who are perimenopausal can have heavy, long periods. Patients with fibroids can have heavy bleeding. If a patient has persistent bleeding, then they should consult their physician for an evaluation. ...Read more
