Ocp questions: One usually gets a period after taking the full cycle [21 or 24 active pills. However, if you have had irregular menses, you may not get a period after completing the active pills. If you had intercourse without using a condom before completing the first cycle of active pills, you might have gotten pregnant. I would do a pregnancy test one week after intercourse to make sure you are not . ...Read more

There : There are lots of reasons for a woman to have irregular periods including: -stress -diet (too few calories) -weight loss -excessive exercise -thyroid problem such as low thyroid hormone -polycystic ovarian syndrome -being within 2-3 years of starting your period (many women have irregular periods for the first 3 years) if you are otherwise feeling well, my guess is that you fit into the last category since it has not yet been three years since you started your period. Reasons to speak with your doctor are if you are experiencing pain, cramping, bloating, breast tenderness, bad acne, no period for more than 45 days if you are sexually active or irregular periods that continue after 3 years from starting your period. If you are having other symptoms such as weight loss or weight gain, thinning hair, constipation, dry skin, fatigue, or swelling of your neck, also call your doctor. ...Read more

I am a 26 female, irregular periods, trying to conceive. I am having weird cramping and had a severe cramp on my right side early am. Pregnant?

Could be: I hope so! you should check a home pregnancy test. If it is positive, and/or if the pain continues/worsens and/or if you start bleeding, you should consider seeing your doctor for more testing (blood pregnancy/hormonal testing, possibly ultrasound). Dont ignore significant pain for too long, because rarely it could signal something worrisome, like a miscarriage or an ectopic pregnancy. Good luck! ...Read more
