Yeast/migraines: Vaginal "thrush" (yeast) and migraines can be associated with emotional stress or situational stress (job, home) and are not usually categorized by "hormone imbalances".

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.

In 2015 :Feb 7,March 11,April 21,May 23,July 4 ,August 12,Sept 9,Oct 22 Nov 27,Dec 29. In 2016: February 4. Is this considered regular periods?
I think so...: Only once during the time you reported did your period come exactly 28 days later (in September), but on the other hand you had a period nearly every month ranging from 1 day late to 15 days late. So they are regular, but not perfectly so. I believe it is accepted that a cycle length varying between 2 and 20 days can be considered regular. But you certainly can't predict ovulation from them! ...Read more

Pregnancy test: IF you are late then check a pregnancy test. If negative then track the cycles over the next few months to see if they return to your usual regular pattern. If you do not want to be pregnant consider starting birth control for cycle regulation. 5 days late should be enough time to be able to trust the test results. ...Read more
I always have regular periods, 28 days exactly, in the last 6 months its coming earlier and earlier, really light and the last one only 2 days long?
Change is natural: Many women have changes in their menstrual cycle especially as they get older. You are in the age range now where the egg reserve (how many eggs you have left) is getting lower. You can definitely see shortening of the follicular phase (1st half of menstrual cycle) which would shorten the total length of the menstrual cycle. Also, if you produce less estrogen, the menses itself may be lighter. ...Read more

I am 25 years old and i don't have regular periods i get it maybe twice a year and i can go up to 7-10 months without getting it?Should i be concerned
Yes: Not having periods can mean that you are not ovulating. There could be systemic reasons for not ovulating, such as problems with your pituitary or thyroid gland. In addition, some women would be at increased risk for bone loss without ovulation, others might be at increased risk for uterine cancer. Bottom line, you need to see a doctor to discuss this. Birth control pills may be a good answer. ...Read more

Yes. Use an OPK kit: Regular periods mean you're ovulating regularly - try using an ovulation predictor kit (opk): test between 10 am and noon, starting on day 10 of your cycle. The first morning urine is not as accurate. Try the ovuquick brand if a drugstore test doesn't work for you. The day of a + ve test and the next 2 days are your most fertile days. If you're not pregnant after 12 months ttc see a rei specialist. ...Read more
