What could it mean if you get hives when you get your menstral period?

May not be allergy!: Hives that worsen with your mestrual cycle are probably not allergy related. Chronic hives are most commonly a form of autoimmunity. Hives are caused by mast cells releasing histamine. There are multiple triggers for mast cells to do this, most famously an allergic reaction.

Many possibilities: This could be a result of several different issues and it greatly depends on your age and overall health. For young women this can be completely normal. Sometimes the decision is made to regulate the periods with birth control pills for a few months. In older women, this can be seen as a sign of early menopause. Other medical conditions, life stress, and physical stress can do this as well. ...Read more

My menstrual cycle is so unpredictable I never know when to expect it. It is never monthly and once I didn't get my period for 6 months is this normal?

Doctor can evaluate: There are many causes for irregular menstruation. One common one is polycystic ovarian syndrome (pcos), a hormonal imbalance along with cysts in the ovaries. Though most irregular menstruation is not acutely dangerous, any woman who does not menstruate monthly should consider seeing her pcp or an ob/gyn for evaluation. ...Read more

Some thoughts...: In a woman with regular periods, some causes of a late period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (like birth control pills), hormonal imbalances, etc… Seeing a doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome.

My period just finished about a day or two ago, any chance i will get pregnant on the 8th/9th day of my menstrual cycle?

You tell us: You are asking the wrong question. We cannot possibly know when you ovulate in your cycle. The period is meaningless in this question. Ovulation is the cornerstone of your menstrual cycle and at 23. I would hope you know this and know when you ovulate. Sperm cause pregnancy if left in the vagina on any or all the five days before ovulation are the sperm that will cause pregnancy. ...Read more
