You : You can get pregnant at any point during your cycle, even though it is much less common to get pregnant during menstruation. Even though pregnancy is the number 1 reason for a missed period, other things can cause an irregular cycle also such as stress, poor diet, lots of exercise and hormone imbalance.

No relation: The hpv vaccine, (gardisil and cervarix), do not affect your period. You are having dysfunctional uterine bleeding for another reason. At your age, this is not typically anything bad. That being said, if your abnormal bleeding persists, call your gyn and make an appointment to be evaluated. Best of luck. ...Read more
