Is having a cycle important? I haven't had a decent period in almost my whole life....What can be wrong with me?...  I'm 23 yrs old...

You : You need to have a complete gynecological evaluation. I am assuming that you are sure you are not pregnant now; if it is at all possible then take a pregnancy test. It is not normal to not have a normal period by age 23. There may be a hormonal cause that needs an evaluation. If your weight is too high or too low it can affect cycles. Please make an appointment with a gynecologist for a complete examination and evaluation. ...Read more

How much drug excreted during the 2nd "half-life" period?

For drugs in the body, how much is excreted during the half-life period?

For drugs in the body, how much is excreted during the half-life period?

50%: By definition, the 1/2 life of a drug is when 50% of the active drug is eliminated from the body by excretion, metabolism or inactivation. This value is important to allow adjustment of dosage to keep therapeutic levels at the proper level. For instance if a drug is eliminated in the urine, and you have some degree of kidney failure, the 1/2 life is longer so lower the dosage. ...Read more

What can cause a period to last a month when you have been have regular periods you whole life ?

What can cause a period to last a month when you have been have regular periods you whole life ?

Hormones: Hello,
When we speak of irregular periods, we think of something that happened or did not happen to change the nature of the period. Since this is a hormonal system then taking medicines with hormones, or hormone-producing cysts can influence the period in this manner. Also if there was no ovulation then there won't be the normal hormones present in the normal amounts to have regular periods. ...Read more

I'm 29 and was wondering why a woman's period would go from super heavy her whole life to this month being light and pink instead of dark red?

I'm 29 and was wondering why a woman's period would go from super heavy her whole life to this month being light and pink instead of dark red?

Hormonal changes: I wouldn't question a good thing, but sometimes a shift in hormones based upon changes in diet/weight/stress/lifestyle can affect the way your uterine lining develops and sheds. Having a lighter period would not be as concerning as missing a period altogether. Keep track of what happens next month with a menstrual calendar. ...Read more

If someone drinks for a short period of their life, let's say 4 years, but never again, will they have to be worried about health consequences? 20 yrs

Yes: It depends on how heavily they drank as well as their health at the time of onset of drinking. Also, if they drank and did something else harmful such as smoking or drugs, plus their genetic make up. I would not lull myself with the idea that short term drinking is acceptable. ...Read more

Is there anything i can change in my life to get my period back?

Optimal weight: A very common reason women stop having menstrual cycles is because of body weight, either too high or too low. Maintaining a normal body mass index (bmi) is important for lots of other health reasons, but for some women bmi does impact their menstrual cycle.
Other reasons you may have stopped having your period are thyroid problems, stress, some medications- really, a long list. ...Read more

I recently joined a gym. I have never really worked out in my life. And last month i only had my period for about 2 hours. Is that normal?

Increased activity : Can cause lighter periods in general. High level female athletes often have little or now period for years at a time. Typically seen in those with low body fat such as gymnasts and swimmers. If it persists and your workouts are routine and not overly strenuous talk to your pcp or ob/gyn. ...Read more

Why would i start getting my period twice a month? I'm 50, could it have something to do with change in life? I was always mark on with my period ?

Why would i start getting my period twice a month? I'm 50, could it have something to do with change in life? I was always mark on with my period ?

You may be correct: At your age, there is a good chance that your theory is correct. But, especially if you're not happy about twice the menstrual annoyance, you might want your doctor or obgyn to check it out and be more certain that there is nothing unusual. The diabetes could be combining with the hormonal changes and is worth checking out too. It's probably fine - but worth looking into. Hoping you're fine! ...Read more

I have just started taking Terbinafine (250 mg a day for 2 weeks). I have read different information about the half-life of the product and that it even stays in your body working a long time (even after the half-life time period). How long does it take f

Terbinafine halflife: Thank you for your question. When used for short-term use (2 weeks), Terbinafine's half-life is defined as 36 hours, therefore it exits the bloodstream after 72 hours. When used for 90 days for nail infection, Terbinafine may be present in the nail plate for much longer, but not the bloodstream. Varying underlying conditions may alter this and assessment by a medical professional is helpful. ...Read more

Does life expectancy decrease if you have a period at 8yo?

Does life expectancy decrease if you have a period at 8yo?

No: I am not aware of any link to life expectancy with menses starting at 8 years of age. This normal in those that do this. For obvious reasons, there should not be any other pre-adult like characteristics in these children. If so, a health exam is mandated. ...Read more

I haven't had my period for 6 years now iam 20 years old will I be able to have kids later in life?

I haven't had my period for 6 years now iam 20 years old will I be able to have kids later in life?

Need more info: If you haven't had a period for six years, it's possible a - you have no eggs left. B - you have good eggs, but you're not stimulating them with the right hormonal sequence or c - there is a blockage preventing the blood from coming out (although you would expect pain with this last one). With b and c, it's more likely you can have kids. With a, no, unless you use an egg donor. ...Read more

18yr old female. Woke up 2am feeling VERY sad. But, i am very hopeful and love life! Why suddenly sad then? On third day of period...is it related?

18yr old female. Woke up 2am feeling VERY sad. But, i am very hopeful and love life! Why suddenly sad then? On third day of period...is it related?

Sad feeling....: You may have just had a dream that you don't even remember that left you "sad" as you woke up from it. If you don't have variations in your emotions , then you are either a computer, robot or an alien. You MUST have times you feel sad in order to also feel happy and glad. Don't dwell on the why, when, where, who .... Sure, it could be hormonally related, but again, what difference does it make? ...Read more

I have take planb 3 times through out my life & the first 2 times i took it my period came next day this time it never did. does it mean it didnt work?

Possibly: No birth control is 100 %, I would suggest you take a pregnancy test now and then two weeks after your regular scheduled period. Please don't use planb as method of birth control. Contraception through an IUD or Implantable device like Nexplanon and condoms for protection from STD are the best method of preventing pregnancy. ...Read more
