Period Came Went
I'm sexually active my period came&went twice in the past 3months (I'm not on BC)my breasts have been feeling tender&sore for about 3month why is that?
Maybe you need to: Check for pregnancy. If first test negative, then check again in 1 week. It is always good to assume that you may be pregnant, since breast tenderness is one of the first signs of pregnancy. If both tests are negative, and you have a period, then you know you are not pregnant. Breast tenderness can also come from hormonal imbalance and overstimulation, or infection if it is just one breast. ...Read more
Ok I don't knoe how to add my cycle my period came feb9 went off on 13 when will I ovulate and what's my cycle length is it 28days or what?
Menstrual calender: February 9th would be day#1 of this cycle. The first day you bleed again should be day #1 of your next cycle. Once you have determined your cycle length, you can estimate time of ovulation (usually around mid-cycle). To make it easy, in a 28-day cycle, ovulation is around day 14. If you want to be more certain of ovulation time, you can check basal body temperatures and ovulation kits. ...Read more
I currently have the IUD paraguard and have for 4 years now. 1-2 wks ago my normal period came and went. Today I started bleeding again.
Irregular bleeding: Irregular bleeding with the paragard is a bit strange. Given that it's a nonhormonal method, I would expect for it to maintain your regular periods and so if you're having an earlier bleed it would signify that you either have a hormonal imbalance related to ovulation or something structural that caused bleeding. It might be a good idea to get examined. Unlikely anything serious if the first time. ...Read more
