Menstruation

For the past year, my periods have been getting increasingly heavier and more painful - so much so that I can barely move and feel as if I am going to throw up. My gynocologist said that it was normal and waved me off even though my Mother has PCOS and wanted to see if she could get me on birth control. For my last two cycles, my periods have only been a day long, extremely heavy, and painful. I'm a teenage girl and I don't have very much persuasive power - If I go to the gynocologist will I just be waved off again (& waste my parents' money) or will they actually help me this time?

There are good treatment options to decrease heavy painful periods . 

Please call Corner health to schedule a visit or get a referral from you primary care provider to get another opinion 

I have never had my period and I have brown discharge.I have searched the internet and it told me this could be a sign that I will have my period soon.Is this true?

Yes, that could be a sign that you are close to starting your menstrual periods.  

Talk to a trusted adult to learn the best way to prepare.

Hello. Im 24 . I got my first depo shot on jan 27 . 2 days after my last period. Had unprotected sex and the guy came inside of me on the 6th of February. Two days later from feb8-feb15 I had a heavy period. Usually my period last 3-5 days. It is now April 13 (supposed to be my second period that i missed). I Scheduled my next depo for today and Im so nervous that I might be pregnant .

You should have been protected against pregnancy on Feb 6th. 

 The shot can cause your period to be irregular at the beginning which is why you had a heavy period.  

It is important that you go to your scheduled depo shot.  

A pregnancy test is routinely done at your second depo visit.  

Hi, I'm 17 and I have sex with a condom and he pulled out. I have also been on brith control for about 5 months. I had sex last week Monday and on my pill tracker it said I was so posed to get my period Monday of this week. I'm one day late on my period and I haven't had any symptoms of pregnancy or pms to an extreme extent. Am I pregnant or is it just a missed period.

If you are taking birth control pills everyday at the same time everyday and you had sex with a condom you are protected against unplanned pregnancy 

There are other things that can cause your period to be late, including stress.  

Your period may get lighter and shorter when using birth control pills. 

Hello, I'm 18 years old and the condom broke during sex. I recently had my period, but I'm on birth control and I heard withdrawal bleeding is different from an actual period. (I unfortunately missed a couple pills as well) Does this still mean I'm not pregnant... or should I take a test?

If you missed a couple of pills and the condom broke then you are at risk of pregnancy.

Most likely the bleeding was a regular period and you are not pregnant but not 100% sure. 

If it is possible to take a test then you will know for sure. 

Also please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health to discuss types of contraception/birthcontrol that may work better for you. 

Hi, I'm 16 and got my period within the last year. I have currently been lightly bleeding for 21 straight days, however, and I'm concerned. What could be some causes and solutions for this?

Abnormal bleeding can be from a few different things such as irregular hormones, infection, pregnancy.   

Please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health for further evaluation.

Hello! I am 15 years old and I started my period on March 2nd and still on it (march 13th) making it 12 days on my period already. My period is usually irregular but nothing like this has ever happened, I'm just concerned it'something more than just an irregular period or something. Also it's like brown most of the time. thank you for reading this , I really need help thank you

Long and irregular periods can be from a few different things.  Please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center to discuss further.  

Can your period come back after months of getting (and still using) the depo shot

It is possible to have irregular bleeding while on depo.  Even if you have been on it for months 

Hello! I am a eighteen years old fellow girl. I've had my period when i was twelve years old since then i had it regularly. But after few years(maybe when i was 16/17 years old) i started to miss my periods by three to four months or even five and after that my period lasted for almost a month and then again miss the cycle by five months and again it lasted for a month. I've been to doctors but to no avail.

It sounds like you may have a hormonal imbalance or perhaps polycystic ovarian syndrome. 

Please schedule an appointment at Corner Health center to be evaluated.
