Period question? - November 16th 2010, 10:29 PM

So this is the 2nd time where my period comes and I spot for a few days and then it stops altogether and then comes back a week or two later. Is there any way to prevent this? I don't like getting the surprise twice a month

Hey there,

A good way to make sure that your period comes at the same time each month is to go on the pill. It regulates your period and makes sure it comes each month and soon you'd get used to the schedule and know when to expect it.

You could speak to your mum about this or just go straight to the doctors. It's not a big deal but it could really help your situation.

I hope things work out, take care.

Eventually you'll settle. Just give it time.

Well, I'd give it time to regulate and if it doesn't stop then go to the doctor and get put on the pill.
I had a similar issue where I would get it two or three times a month and I was almost anemic. I almost had to go onto the pill but then I regulated again.
So, give it maybe another month or two to regulate and if it doesn't call your doctor.

How long have you had your period for? If you've had it for three or more years, I'd go to your doctor and maybe discuss going on the pill. You could even have a small cyst or something that is making your period a little wonky.

This happened to me about three years after I had started my period. I told my mom and she ended up taking me to the gynecologist. He put me on birth control, which I was on for about three years. After having been off it for about three years now, it hasn't happened since.

Re: Period question? - November 27th 2010, 03:13 AM

I have had my period for about 3 years I believe. More or less. I have been wanting to go on the pill to regulate it so I asked my mother but she said it was too expensive. So I guess I'll just wait :/

Re: Period question? - November 28th 2010, 04:19 PM

After three years your should be coming on a regular schedule. Once a month, every month.
Sometimes spotting between periods can be normal. However it can also be caused by a number of things such as hormonal dysfunctions, low thyroid levels, or even simply stress. Even if you can't go on the pill, you really should try to get to a doctor to make sure it's not something serious! Chances are there is no big threat, but as they say, better safe than sorry! Try keeping track of menstruation and spotting, both when they occur and how heavy the bleeding is. The more information you can give your doctor, the better.
