    Default Getting my period way too often


    I've been getting my period on average of every week and a half for a few months now. My last one ended last Saturday and come today (Monday) I am on a new one. I am 26 years old. My periods have never been irregular before. I had a pap in September that came back fine. Have not been sexually active since mid-November. I have been under a lot of stress lately but could that be causing it each time? I'm at the point where I don't even care if there is anything wrong so it would be useless seeing a doctor, just wondering if I should possibly prepare for something wrong and am lost.

    Normally I would say that it was probably stress that was causeing your irregular periods. But every week and a half for a few months consistantly seems odd to me. I would try to see a doctor just to be sure everythings ok.
    What makes you say that you don't even care if something is wrong?

    Long story short I have been having some big issues and no doctor has been willing to help so I gave up caring about myself. Even if it were something big I would just refuse treatment. I am just curious as to whether or not the chances are that I should prepare for something big.

    Well I'm no doctor but I think it could be a number of things. Did you try to google it?
    I'm sorry to hear about your previous bad experiences with doctors but I would really urge you to go if this continues for much longer. Its pretty possible you have just seen the wrong doctors in the past.

    Hi Anne,

    I started my period at the age of 15 and have never had a regular period. My periods would last for 4-6 month then stop for about 3 month and continue like this I have had to have blood transfusion almost every year. I have been refferd to the hospital for this and no doctor could help me with this and felt hopless and stoped caring about myself. I have had scans after scans and they couldnt find anything. I had a Mirena Coil fitted however i had really bad cramps and couldnt even walk. I had contraction like pain which started making me push and the coil came out. since the coil came out my pain has dissapeard but the period problem was still there. I went to Holland and Barretts and they gave me Primrose Capsuels 1300mg and it made my period regular. Hope this helps

    So my doctor won't give me a (renewed from September) script for birth control unless I go in. She knows I can't go in. She knows I am getting periods this frequently. She is telling me to go to a specialist and she knows I can't. At this point, do I just wait to die? Because I feel that is what I am doing...

    Of course your Dr wants to see you, you are having health issues.

    Is it that you can't or that you won't go into the Dr?

    Whoever said anything was possible obviously never tried slamming a revolving door.
