so, i am a 17 year old girl and my periods normally last for 7/8 days. however, this time my period came just a few days earlier than expected and it was quite light flow and dark brown colour, becoming heavier on the second and third days. i thought this was normal as it may be old blood. Then three days later, my period became red and fluctuated from heavy/medium. i am on my seventh day and it is still medium flow and red. should i be worried? what food helps?

What can this be?

Unclear what your rash is.  You can ask your primary care provider for a referral to dermatology.  

I recently found out that I have chlamydia, I’m getting cured for it right now, it takes a week. And my partner also has it and is also getting cured. Can we still have sex with a condom? And can we have oral sex without a condom? Will i be fine?

The guidelines say to wait 7 days for cure of the infection.  Using a condom will prevent the reoccurence of the infection.  Oral sex without a condom may cause oral chlamydia infection.  

Hi, i use to have 5 day periods, now it lasts for 7 days. What could have caused this change and can is it possible to get it back to the 5 days.

It is not unusual for periods to change and become irregular.  It can be caused by many different things such as moving, stress, diet, or just an unknown shift in hormones.  There is not really a way to regulate it unless you want to try oral contraception pills which also regulate periods  

I have severe OCD... I used to obsess over cleaning... i am currently a 25 year old female. from the ages of 16-24 i over-used clorox disinfectant wipes and disinfectant spray. i would even use them directly on my skin sometimes... i spent HOURS (at least 4 a day) spraying my small apartment and car with no gloves or ventilation... I know NOW that this is very bad but in my head at the time I was keeping myself and those around me safe... do you think that permanent damage has already been done and i will develop cancer at an early age or die at an early age? i am very worried and depressed when i think about what i have done to my body...

It is hard to know how your body has reacted to the wipes and disinfectant.  Please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center to discuss your concerns. 

It is also important to get the appropriate treatment for severe OCD.
