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 got my last period on June 19. I have an average cycle of 36 days but it always varies greatly randing from 30 to 40 days. I had unprotected sex twice- on 25th July and 3rd August because I assumed my periods must be almost here. But I never got them. Now its been 70 days since my last period and I have taken multiple home pregnancy tests- the most recent one on 19 August, but they all showed negative. The only pms/pregnancy symtom i seem to be having is sore nipples(which is common for me during pms as well). But my breasts are not sore or tender at all and I have no other symptoms. Also I did a lot of travelling in between(long flights and road trips). My air travel dates are 5 July, 19 July, 14 Aug. What is going on inside my body? Could I be pregnant?

You are most likely experiencing an irregularity in hormones which is causing an irregular cycle.  The irregularlities could be from travel.  I would recommend that you schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health for further assessment. 

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. 

I'm have an IUD that was placed in 2016. It's good till 2025. My periods last up to 5 days but this one is having me worried. I have been bleeding for 11 days now. Before i had this period my back would hurt so bad and my right side would hurt but that all went away cause i started bleeding. I went pee a few minutes ago. When i wipe on toilet paper there was a large blood clot. I have a photo of it. I'm worried. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with my IUD.

It is difficult to know what may be going on.  It is not unusual to get a heavy prolonged period with the paraguard IUD.

I think the best thing for you to do is schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or schedule an appointemnt at Corner Health. 

I just had my period 18 days after my previous period. I'm very confused. Can someone talk to me about this and help me figure out what causes this?

Regular monthly periods depend on regular cycling of hormones beginning in the brain.  These hormones can go "off cycle" for a number of reasons such as stress, travel, moving to a new place, change in diet, or age. Some medical conditions can also cause irregular periods.

Continue to monitor your cycles and if you still have concerns please schedule an appointment  at Corner Health or with your regular health care provider.

So i masturbated and i must of did it too hard accidentally cuz in the morning i noticed there was blood in my underwear. And i am on birth control to help regulate my period. And i am still bleeding but i am supposed to be on not the period pill. And i was wondering if i do take it what would happen? Like would it interfere with the bleeding i already have going on. And i am worried if i do take it would it stop or continue the bleeding, or when i do it again will i bleed afterwards?

Continue to take the pills on the same schedule.  It is unclear where the bleeding is coming from. If the bleeding continues you should be seen by your health care provider.
