  • Period is super off please help!

    About a month ago, during my ovulation, I started bleeding very lightly which is very abnormal for me since my period is pretty much stable now. Then 2-3 weeks laters, I got my normal period about 4-7 days late. It was the normal flow that I usually get. NOW, I'm in my ovulation phase once again and I just started bleeding very lightly again. SO BASICALLY, I started bleeding every two weeks for the past month and a half. I have no idea why this is happening. Some of the changes that have occurred in my life would be: I started working out a lot more than I used to, I have been a bit more stressed than usual, and I lost my virginity about 5-6 months ago. My bf and I do it with condom mostly. There are instances where he sticks it in bare for about 20 seconds, but he never ejaculates. Can anyone explain what is happening?

  • I take it you are not on the pill. Have you seen your ob/gyn? Have you used a pregnancy test kit? For a theoretical scenario, implantation bleeding could explain light bleeding during ovulation and a miscarriage could explain both the late period and later light bleeding since all of the tissue may not have been expelled (a reason for a D&C). I am not saying that such a scenario is likely, but talking with your ob/gyn may come up with the reasons why your cycles are off and why you have light bleeding. Having sex without birth control opens up a greater possibility for pregnancy.
    I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience.
    Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

    From a speech by Patrick Henry on March 23, 1775 at St. John's Church, Richmond, Virginia
