I am 42 and for the last 2 years have had really heavy but regular periods but for the last few months my periods are erratic. i am also bleeding ever?
Im usually very irregular on my periods but for the past 3 months I've been having my periods each month and last 2 weeks, what do you recommend?
I have been having irregular periods. I will skip for 2 months and then my period will come and when it comes it last for a long time. Why?
Shedding lining: If you are taking Depo-Provera provera, (medroxyprogesterone) the constant Progesterone makes the lining of your uterus shed. Unfortunately, it does it a little at a time, making you have irregular bleeding that may be pretty long. If you feel dizzy or tired or the bleeding is heavy, see your doctor. If it is spotting, give it a week and then see your doctor. Irregular bleeding can happen for up to 3-6 months. ...Read more
Hi I am 22 years old virgin and have periods on time every month. But is it okay to have periods for just 2 days? Is it too light and abnormal?
Possibly OK for you.: Each woman will have her own menstrual pattern. If you have always had short, light periods, then everything is probably OK. But if you have noticed a difference with your periods going from 4 days of average flow to 2 days of light flow, you should see your gynecologist for evaluation. Light menses can be normal but can also signal low estrogen levels. ...Read more

I am 28 and my periods are still not coming on a monthly basis. I skip months and then when it does come it last for 2 weeks is this normal?
Is there a medicine to get periods immediately? I haven't got my periods from past 2.5 months. I usually get my periods every 45days..This time it is more delayed
Please : Please be seen and be evaluated for this. Not having your period for 2.5 months is concerning. If there is any chance of pregnancy then please be sure to take a pregnancy test. Sometimes weight loss can cause period changes so let your doctor know about that. If you get any pain, light-headedness, or vomiting then please be seen as an emergency. ...Read more

Time to see a GYN: When's the last time you visited a gynecologist to get imaging done to see what the cause might be of your excessive bleeding?

When are you most fertile is it before your periods or after mine only go for 6 days every month I have recently just finished my periods?
Hello my periods are always the same every month . This month it was late and two days long what could this mean?
Normal variation: It is common for the cycle to vary from time to time. A few days difference in start time of menses should not be worrisome. The intensity of the menses can also vary so it should not be alarming to have an occasional lighter (or heavier) period. Of course, there is always the possibility of conception if you are sexually active - so if there is concern it would be proper to check a pregnancy test ...Read more
Hormones: Your periods occur because of changes in hormones within your system. While a lot of women have a period every month around the same time, there is variation from cycle to cycle. Ie – a period may come on a few days earlier or later and maybe heavier or lighter depending on the endometrium lining. It may come continuously or with intermittent spotting.

Menstrual cycles: It is common for teenagers to skip a period and have irregular cycles. It is also more likely to happen if you are very athletic, gain or lose weight, using birth control pills, or have an eating disorder. Still, if you are sexually active, you could be pregnant. I would track your cycles to see if it happens often and see your doctor if you notice that it becomes more irregular. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
