Hormonal imbalance: I trust that pregnancy test was negative. 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.

The only way to know if someone had implantation bleeding or just irregular menstrual bleeding is to wait and see if you are pregnant. If your test is positive then this was implantation bleeding. If it is negative then it is just irregular menstrual bleeding. ...Read more

What does it mean when you have a pink/orange period for 2 days and then later had sex and then was spotting right after!

Irregular menses: I'm not exactly clear as to your sequence of events. If you're describing your period for 2 days, then sex, then spotting right after, you could be describing a 3 day period, right?

Not anally retentive: Abuse of any medicinal kind warrants not only what effect it has on the body but why this behavior is being done in the first place. Your first stop is to see a GYN MD, but only if you tell him/her of your laxative abuse issues to help clarify the impact on your menstrual cycle. Number 2 (pun intended), you need to see a therapist or psychologist to sort out your compelling need to abuse laxatives. ...Read more
