Period

I’m 21 years old and up until about 2 years ago I had regular periods, but for the past 2 years I get a period every 3-4 months, I also started noticing hair on my neck check and stomach I’ve been tweezing and shaving because of how embarrassing it is. I can’t seem to get up the nerve to go to a gynecologist because I feel so uncomfortable having to be looked at.

Your brief description of symptoms could be polycystic ovarian syndrome.  (PCOS) The only way to know what is causing your symptoms is to visit your primary care provider or Corner health for further assessment which would include a physical exam (not necessarily a pelvic exam) and blood tests.  There are treatments that can be helpful. 

I recently took my contraception out after having it in for 2 years and 2 months. In that time, I never once had a period. I’ve had my bar out for about a week now and my partner and I have discussed trying for a baby. In this week, we’ve had unprotected sex about 5 times? I’m not taking the pill and we’re not wearing protection, I was just wondering what the chances were of getting pregnant? And when should my period come after having the bar for that long without a period?

Those are good questions but there are no exact answers.  Some women resume their normal cycles as early as  7 days after the Nexplanon is removed and pregnancy can occur.  Other times the return to a normal cycle can take longer.  

I'm 15 and when I started having my period at 13 it was regular but over the past few months had become irregular and I am currently 46 days without a period since the first day of my last period. I have been having a lot of discharge which changes color and consistency throughout the day and a few days ago I had blood tinged discharge and I'm not sure if that was ovulation because of how irregular my cycle has been.

Many women go through times when periods are irregular.  Often it is due to hormonal changes from stress, illness, change etc.  Sometimes there is an underlying reason that needs more medical attention 

You should schedule an appointment with your primary care provider /dr. or call Corner Health to schedule an appointment .  

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.
