Hi I am currently taking the mini pill, I want to know what could happen if I stop using it concerning physical and emotional changes, since I'm no longer sexually active.

For most women stopping the mini pill does not produce significant changes.  However, if you noticed any changes when you started the mini pill such as acne improvement, regular periods then those things will most likely return.  You may experience some irregular bleeding as your system readjusts.

I get bullied all the time for not having my period yet (im 14) i also get bullied for having aa breasts and its not something i can control but it hurts so much to get judged for something i cannot control at all.

Puberty begins for people at different ages.  Unfortunately, people can be very cruel and hurtful.    Please schedule an appointment with your dr or come to the Corner Clinic.  It is helpful to talk to someone about what you are experiencing.  

I have had discharge since i was 10 I'm 14 and i don't think it is before first period discharge cause if it was i would of gotten it 2 years before my period so, also it is a nonstop recurrence i haven't lived a day after 10 without discharge and its kinda worrying.

Most women have discharge that starts at puberty, age when periods begin.  Sometimes discharge changes or increases because of products /soaps, creams that are used.  If you are sexually active discharge can be a sign of infection.  If your discharge is concerning please schedule an appointment to talk about this with your dr.  Or schedule an appointment at Corner health.   

I had protected sex twice in a week. two weeks later I got my period, which was heavy and about 4-5 days. I'm expecting my period next week but I have 2 or 3 pregnancy symptoms. What's happening?

It is not clear from your description of the timing what is going on . If you do not get your period when expected it is recommended you get a pregnancy test. 


You can can schedule at Corner health or see you primary care provider 

My moms period is extremely irregular and so is mine. Because of this, there really isn't a way of telling when it will come and everyday I'm paranoid that it came and that I'm leaking.

That is a very frustrating situation. You may consider wearing a light pad in your underwear to prevent leakage should your period start.

The use of oral contraception pills can also be used to regulate your period so you will know when to expect it.

You can schedule an appointment  at Corner health or with your health care provider to discuss further.

My boyfriend came and stayed since sep 2nd - 9th and we "played around" on the 10th. I started my period but the first day was light, it also seemed like it stopped bleeding and then continued. It lasted for 8 days which has never happened before, hours and hours later after my period stopped i noticed tiny spotting of blood and that happened for like 2 days. I'm so bloated and my lower back has been hurting a good bit since i've started spotting. normal?? or?

It is difficult to know what is going on by what you describe.  Please schedule an appointment at Corner Health or with your primary care provider for further evaluation. 

Hello I am 13 I got something Brown on my underwear and it's like sticky and stuff and my family members said that it's my period I think that too but it's been a day after and bout to be another day but I haven't bleed or anything when will I bleed ?

Yes, it does sound like it could be an "early period"  Often the first few periods are irregular and may just last a very short time. 

For some young women it is a couple of years until periods are monthly and last 3-5 days. 

It is unpredictable. 

Hi I am a 21 year old. I am 7 days late today and experiencing cramping (usual cramps before periods) since 4 days. I am also having diarrhea since yesterday ( perhaps coz I am stressed). I have a 30 day cycle. Two months back (2-3 days after my periods), me and my partner made out..But we did not have sex. My Last month periods was normal and on due date. Can I be pregnant?

If you have not had sexual activity where sperm from your partner came in contact with your vagina then you cannot be pregnant.  Most likely you are having an unusual cycle due to changes in hormones. Stress, nutrition and other things can affect hormones.  You most likely will get your period soon.  If you continue to have irregular cycles schedule an appointment with your health care provider or Corner Health Center.

Can traveling affect your period? I went to America whilst I'm from the uk and my period is way earlier, it usually lasts 5 days but only lasted around 3 and it was much lighter? I'm all worried because when I Google it, things like spotting or implantation bleeding comes up?

Yes, travel can definitely affect your period.  It can cause changes in your hormone cycle.

If you have had unprotected sexual intercourse with a partner with a penis you could be at risk of pregnancy and should get a pregnancy test.

Otherwise your periods should return to normal once your routine returns back to normal.

I've recently started my period and I can't help but to think that it's disgusting. I feel bad for thinking that. What do I do?

It is not unusual for young women to have negative thoughts when they first start their periods.  It is important for you to get information about your monthly cycle to understand more about what is happening. 

It may be helpful to talk to an adult you feel close with or you can schedule an appointment with your health care provider or at Corner Health  for more information and assistance.
