Conditions with symptom: 'no periods'
Okay so I started my periods when I was 12/13 and I'm now 16 and I've noticed my periods are really irregular (thanks to a period diary app). I've never had sex or been on the pill and over half way through year now, I've only had two periods so far. I'm currently (for the second time that I've noticed) over 7 weeks late and I'm starting to think something isn't quite right. I've not told my mum or anyone yet because I find talking about periods etc really uncomfortable and awkward. Does anyone know why is this happening and what should I do about it?
I have been having my periods since I was 12 years old, I am now 26. Every month I have had my periods, normally every 26 days and only lasting for 4-5 days. In the last six weeks I have had 3 periods, lasting 5-7days, not even full periods, quite light really. I am a bit concerned why these have changed. I was wondering if this is something to worry about or just a normal change. Kind regards
Please ask your GP to be referred to a gynaecology to get it sorted it might be something serious. I was inthe same situation and was asked for a smear which came back abnormal. Got it repeated a month later and it was normal and had to have a smear test every 3months until they were sure it was clear.I thought it was overian....... but then it was a fibroid.
I have regular periods and I am on contraceptive pills . When this time I was having my periods the blood was reddish black and vowed in low quantities than the other days of periods. Why is that.
Redish black blood is old blood. Nothing to worry about. Not sure why its like that on the pill - guess because the period can be lighter on the pill?
Hello, im 19 i didn't start my periods until i was 17. Since i have started my periods i have had the implant, i have just had it removed and my periods are regular in that they are exactly 48 days apart not 28 so i skip a month. im worried whats should i do ?
i am 14 years old, i started my periods when i was 11. But for the last year i have been getting my periods every two weeks and they are really heavy. About a week before i get my periods i get severe cramping and i lose my appetite should i see a doctor??
..I think you should, as they can give you a conraceptive that can help lighten your periods. I had the same problem at your age and from that was put on the pill and after a few months my peroids were lighter and more manageable. The best thing I've found for cramping to to take FeminaxUltra (which can be cought over the counter) and eating little but often to keep something in your stomach, and putting a hot water bottle on the sore areas. Hope this helps :)
I'm 15 years old and 5 months old. My last and only period ever was 13 months and 1 day ago. I don't know why I haven't had anymore. It's not that I'm not completely in puberty, because my breasts are size 36C and I'm not overweight. I've been developing normally with everything except my periods. I know irregular periods are pretty normal, but I've never heard of them being more than years apart. All of my older sisters (I have 3) had their periods during the summer they turned 14, and their periods were only a month or two off, most of the time. What's wrong with me?
Hi, I'm 16 years old and I started my periods when i was 13 years old. I originally had very irregular periods and severe stomach pain. Since being prescribed Ovranette I now have regular periods but they are still fairly painful and stop me from doing things as I feel too ill. Does anyone have any suggestions for stopping the pain? or if I stop the pills for a few months whether my periods will be regular now?
its completely normal to have painful periods and the best thing you can do is take some pain killers like paracetamol or do some exercise but what makes me feel better is drinking some tea and have a hot water bottle across my stomach :)
i find feminax is very effective when i have extremely bad period pains :)
Im 16 and on the pill, i started my periods when i was 13. since i have ben on the pill my periods are really irregular, they told me that they would be for the first 3/4 months but i have been on for about 9months. my periods can last up to 2 weeks, sometimes a day. they arent always heavy but sometimes they are really really light. is there anything wrong?
i suffer from really bad periods i get painful periods where my periods pass blood clots i sometimes bleed very heavy heavy my hormones are everywhere and i might have a genetic problem called men type 1
I am 17, I've had period for a couple years and I got the Implanon in Feb 2010. My periods were very irregular for a while then they calmed down, and recently I've been getting periods that last so long I actually get excited when I get a day off. I don't know if this is due to the Implanon and I should get it taken out. I'm also worried whether I could generally just be bleeding and it's not periods...
I'm on implanon and I have the same problem, I can go without a period for up to 3-4 months and then I will be bleeding for a long time, the longest being 2 months with only 2 day with no bleeding, so think it may just be the implanon. Try going to your local family plannign clinic and they will probably help you :) .
im on implanon i have been on for 6 months i went to a g.u.m clinic and they said that bleeding sometimes lasts for as long as a year
