Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Need exam to Dx: It could be a small or significant thing but you'll need a good exam to know - maybe even lab tests or imagry - but it's worth a visit. Don't worry - it may be normal variations yet it's good to catch a problem early if there is one. Best! ...Read more

Whats the cause of my irregular period? I get my period twice a month, im really scared, help!

Whats the cause of my irregular period? I get my period twice a month, im really scared, help!

Many causes: Requires an evaluation to determine why. Need to check for thyroid problems, fibroids, ovarian cysts, polyps, and other hormonal imbalances (pcos, etc). If a patient is very overweight it can also disrupt normal ovulatory hormonal changes and cause overthickening of the uterine lining that can cause heavy, frequent, irregular bleeding. Precancerous changes of the lining need to be ruled out also. ...Read more

Hi my named is Alice and I am a 16 year old and wondering why do I have my period 3 times a month? Is this normal ? Does this considered being pregnant

Hi my named is Alice and I am a 16 year old and wondering why do I have my period 3 times a month? Is this normal ? Does this considered being pregnant

See Doctor Alice: It is not of the norm to have bleeding 3X/month. A normal period is cyclical on a monthly (roughly 28 day) cycle. You should tell your parents your periods are not normal and you are bleeding 3x/month, and a Gynecologist can see you and evaluate you for this issue. Best wishes. ...Read more

What would cause me to get my period twice a month even though i'm on birth control pills and I take them correctly at the same time every day?

What would cause me to get my period twice a month even though i'm on birth control pills and I take them correctly at the same time every day?

Maybe it's the pill: Sometimes women on birth control pills will have "breakthrough bleeding." that is unscheduled bleeding while taking the pill. If you're just starting this pill, give it a few months and it may resolve. If this is persistent, you may want to try another type of pill that will better control your bleeding. And, of course, take a pregnancy test to be sure that isn't the cause of irregular bleeding. ...Read more

I have been on Depo-Provera for 5 years and have been off the shot for 7 months can it cause a hormonal imbalance? I have my period every other week.

Common: Unfortunately the longer you are on depo the longer it lasts in your body. Even after stopping it, the effects can last up to 1.5 to 2 years. That is not surprising. Your doctor can put you on other meds until the effects are all gone if you like. ...Read more
