Latest Questions

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 19 and half and for the first time i have my periods 10 days earlier is this normal or is this something else"

Getting your period early is most likely a variation of normal.  Periods can be effected by many things such as stress, changes in routine, nutrition, weight gain or weight loss.  If you have had unprotected sex and there is a chance you could be pregnant light bleeding can be implantation bleeding.  

I have struggled with irregular periods ever since i can remember. I had my son almost 3 years ago and I have been trying to get pregnant again, I recently went 5 months with no period ( constantly taking pregnancy tests ) and 33 days ago i finally got my period . thing is now it wont stop, I have been bleeding for 33 days now ; every time I think it will stop because I to some hours without bleeding I will bleed again as if Im starting a whole new period.

From what you are describing it seems like you have a hormonal imbalance.  It is recommended you schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or a gynecologist.  Lab test can determine if there is an imbalance and there is treatment to help regulate your periods.  

I have light periods(Contained by a light tampon) ,but I just had a fairly large clot. Somewhere in between a nickel and a quarter. I had cramps and back pain before I passed it. Why am I getting these clots if my flow isn't that "heavy"

Having clots during menstruation may happen for many reasons but mostly are part of normal menses  If these worsens or is bothersome you may wish to speak with your primary care provider. 

If I am ovulating had intercourse and took my pill 13 hours late could I get pregnant

Yes, it is.  If you ovulated and the egg comes in contact with sperm it can result in pregnancy 

If I were to come in and get birth control, would I have to pay for the session? I was told by several friends that it was free for school students.

Corner accepts all health insurance.  If you do not have insurance or you do not want to use your insurance we have a reduced fee and payment plan as needed.  

Some insurances can be used without sending any information home to parents 

We will not turn anyone away from Corner even if you cannot pay. 

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 .  

I’m having a weird discharge and it comes out a lot frequently. First it was thick and clumpy which happens before I start my period. But it started getting very watery and yellowish and come out a lot. I can feel it when moving around. I thought it would go away after my period but it’s still here. The last time I had sex was 2 weeks ago and a condom was used. I’m scared I have a std or something. I just want this discharge to go away.

An increase or change in vaginal discharge can be caused by different things including stis.  Please schedule an appointment with your PCP or at Corner health center to get it checked.  

I have a vagina and when I was younger I started masturbating with an electric toothbrush. Now that I'm older I've bought a few vibrators and none of them work for me like the toothbrush? This is a stupid question but is it possible I've programmed myself so the only thing that works is that dumb toothbrush? What about having sex with other people? Am i desensitized?

That is a complicated question and I would recommend you speak with a gynecologist or sex therapist/counselor to get more information.
