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

Even : Even though the most common symptom of pregnancy is a missed period, some women will continue to have some spotting or bleeding throughout the first trimester. Pink to brown spotting could even be a sign of the fertilized egg implanting into the uterus. If you think that you might be pregnant, you should take a test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come. You may want to wait a week or two before taking a pregnancy test to maximize its accuracy. There are other reasons for an irregular period besides pregnancy such as stress, poor diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance. If you are not pregnant and continue to have irregular periods, you may want to speak with your doctor - especially since you are trying to conceive. An irregular cycle can indicate a problem with ovulation and can affect your chances of becoming pregnant. Good luck! ...Read more

1 UlcerOnTopAnother: To make an intelligent answer it would be necessary to know what antibiotics and what doses and any other meds you take. Some antibiotics are known to alter the period but it's a rare occurrence and usually not severe. But it may be something else. I wouldn't stress over it unless it recurs for, say, 3 months in a row or other symptoms develop. And make sure you're not pregnant with a urine test. ...Read more

No, not normal: There are a variety of possibilities for irregular bleeding which is hard to address w/o more details; some common reasons are varying hormone levels, seen in times of stress, fluctuating weight, or irregularly taken birth control pills.

I had a six week long period it stopped for two days and now came back and heavier with a lot of clots. What is wrong with me?

Bleeding: It sounds like you have dysfunctional uterine bleeding. This is caused when you do not ovulate and your hormones continue to stimulate the lining of the uterus until it sloughs off with heavy bleeding. The bleeding can last a long time and sometimes you need a D&C to stop it and regulate your periods again. You need a good exam for this and to rule out other problems. ...Read more

It happens sometimes: 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
