  • Sudden, irregular period.

    I am almost 16 years old. I started my period in July 2005. My period was always regular. I've never missed a period. In June, I didn't get it. In July, August, and September It was so light I wouldn't even count it. I didn't get it in October or November. I finally got it on Christmas Eve and it lasted a little longer then normal. I think I'm gettting it again. Two weeks after. My periods used to be a month apart? What's wrong with me? Should I go to the gynecologist?

  • Many young women experience irregular periods. I did, my daughter did. Have you talked to your mother to see what her experience was? I bet she had them too. A GYN will put you on a low level pill to regulate you. It is a lot easier when your cycle is predictable.

    • Am 19yrs old and even now I still have the occasional irregular period, I have found that if I get stressed up with something, feel pressurised or not eating as regular as I should then this can affect my "time of the month".

      It is quite awful I know, but it is something we learn to understand and deal with, and hope that later in life it all settles down.

      Like WC has mentioned.......We are not alone.

      • That is exactly what has been happening with me. I had missed two months of my period and barely started two weeks ago. Now today, it seems as if I'm starting my period. But I'm not quite sure.
