Past week=sudden increased appetite. Like I feel like a teenage boy about to go through a growth spurt. Got period 5 years ago, so prob not growth?

Not growing: 5 years after your first period you should be fully grown so a growth spurt is not likely. If you have an increasing appetite it is probably from other factors. Increased calorie needs can result from new levels of exercise, new body requirements (pregnancy), or nutritional deficiencies (iron deficiency anemia). ...Read more

I have been delayed my mestration period for 5 years? What is the possible cause and what should I do?

I have been delayed my mestration period for 5 years? What is the possible cause and what should I do?

Unsure: From your question I'm not sure whether your cycles have been longer than usual for 5 years or you haven't had a period in 5 years. The causes are very different. You could just naturally have a longer cycle. Up to 35-42 days (depending on your source) can be perfectly normal. 5 years is not. See your doctor for a full history, exam, and appropriate testing to know for sure what the problem is. ...Read more

My period is usually regular and this month it is 4 days early. I'm 17 years old. Is this normal? I've had my period for 5 years now

Normal: A period a few days early is pretty normal. Slight variation from month to month is typical. If you are sexually active please consider starting birth control.

I am an 18 year old virgin female, and I have started my period like 5 years ago but it is irregular till now. It could come after 3 months and then?

See below:: It's not unusual, especially in the first 2 years after menarche, to skip periods or to have an irregular menstrual cycle. Illness, rapid weight change, or stress can also make things more unpredictable because the part of the brain that regulates periods is influenced by events like these. Since your periods are irregular for 3 years or more, see your doctor for a thorough evaluation! ...Read more

Common: Most young women are regular for a few months after starting their cycles then become irregular in one fashion or another. The birth control pill is a good way to make your cycles regular and to possibly limit the flow or maybe even stop it (which is fine by the way) ...Read more

I'm 21 I have had mirena (levonorgestrel) for 5 years and 4 months I haven't had a period for 5 years but I have been having some spotting. Is my IUD still working?

I'm 21 I have had mirena (levonorgestrel) for 5 years and 4 months I haven't had a period for 5 years but I have been having some spotting. Is my IUD still working?

Don't count on it!: At 5 years and 4 months, your Mirena (levonorgestrel) is probably still secreting enough hormone to affect your periods but not enough to keep you from getting pregnant. I wouldn't count on it protecting you from pregnancy. If you like it, you can have it removed and another one put in. Best wishes! ...Read more

Home pregnancy tests are very accurate.: They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.  if you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

I have very irregular periods but have been on birth control for 3 years and have had my period for 5 years. Can also last 7+ days. Hormone problems?

After not having a menstrual period for five years from menopause, why would light bleeding occur?

Endometrial cancer.: Once you are in menopause, unless you are on cyclic bioidentical hrt, it is not normal to have any bleeding. You need to go to your gyn and be evaluated to make sure you don't have endometrial thickening or uterine cancer. It could also be due to a benign polyp. Good luck. ...Read more

I haven't had my period in over five years, but two of those years I suffered from anorexia. Is my period ever going to return? I am still under 21..

Not sure: It may not. The changes which occur to cause someone to stop having periods sometimes last a long time. Even if behaviors change there can be a long lag until the body gets itself organized (sort of speak) to have periods again. This can be very serious and can cause some serious consequences to your health (weakened bones, heart disease) and you should see a specialist to treat those aspects, which are more important that the actual periods coming. Time in this case makes a big difference and you want to get treated asap! ...Read more

Precancerous lesion: Worst case scenario for bleeding/spotting in menopause can be a precancerous lesion of the uterus. Another possibility is atrophic vaginitis, which is not related to cancer. A gynecologist will be able to sort things out before they become really serious. ...Read more

I'm 16 I have had my period for 5-6 years and I want to know should I be regular yet and I haven't had my period in about 5 months should I be worried?

Pregnant?: First of all, if you are sexually active, make sure that you are not pregnant. Pregnancy is the most common cause for missed periods. However, there are many other causes. If you have not had a period in 5 months and are not pregnant, then I suggest that you see a doctor as soon as possible. It could be a problem with your thyroid, stress, or other abnormality. Best to get it checked out. ...Read more

Have had period for 4.5 years now and not growing any taller, why is my jaw still growing out? Shouldn't growth plates be closed by now?

I had 2 polyps removed 2 weeks ago. I started to spot bleed a couple of days ago. I'm almost 55, and have not had a period for over 5 years. Is this n?

Polyps where?: If the polyps came from the cervix or uterus, then if the pathology was benign your doctor will probably just wait a little while to make sure the bleeding stops and does not return. If the polyps came from elsewhere (such as colon or nasal polyps) then the bleeding is not related and you need to see your gynecologist. ...Read more

Yeah, this happens: "Return to fertility after a DMPA-IM injection averages 9–10 months. " from a very good article provided by this site.

I've come off the injection and gone on the pill, feanolla, after a month I've just started bleeding, is this normal? I've not had a period for about 5 years due to being on the injection.

Yes.: Feanolla is a progestogen-only-pill (POP), or a mini-pill. It is not uncommon to have irregular bleeding. Observe for 2 more months. If bleeding remains heavy, persistent or you are worried, see a gynecologist about changing to a different pill or method. ...Read more
