    Okay so I've always had irregular periods

    but within the last year they have been a little worse. I once got it twice in one month and then it was late but I think it was due to a lot of stress. It then actually became regular for once and then all of a sudden two weeks after my regular one I got a light period which...

    Irregular For So Many Years, But No More!

    Hi, Just wanted to share my experience with anyone who has irregular periods, as it may help someone. I had irregular periods right from getting them at about 15 years old, until I was 38. I eventually found the cause of the problem when I gave up Gluten, my stomach pains made me...

    Grah.

    I *maybe* have one period a year. And no, that's not because of any medication I take. Its because I'm sick, on an 'endocrine' level, and haven't been able to get myself taken care of.

    Not Lucky

    Everyone thinks I'm lucky, not having periods each month, but it's honestly just a pain in the ***. I started having my period the summer after 5th grade, when I was 10 years old. At first, they were pretty regular, nothing to be worried about. Then when I was a freshman in high...

    As If Periods Weren't Annoying Enough...

    Having an irregular period is very complicated. It's not just the fact that you skip bleeding for one month. Sometimes it is months at a time. Sometimes you get symptoms of pms with no actual bleeding. Than once you finally get it after months, it is very heavy and uncomfortable...
