  • Mirena, 4 STI Tests, and I am just flat out angry now.

    I recently came to the point of utter confusion, anger and sadness. I want to hear all potential options, and their weight. I will give the facts, and do my best to avoid the emotional aspect. A little about me. I have been on the pill, nuvaring and now Mirena IUD. All consecutive. I have recently been diagnosed and treated for chlamydia. I am 18 and healthy and fit. I am very emotionally dedicated to my partners. No previous pregnancies. Only sex partners of mine are mentioned here. Chronological....

    I got the mirena one year ago and I always got periods that lasted about 7 days it would start heavy and lighten the first 3 days then I would spot the last 3 but the past two months I have only had a day of spotting and then nothing should I be worried.... is this just my body getting used to the mirena or is there a possibility I'm pregnant? I will go see my doctor soon I just want to know if this has happened to others as well or if I should try a at home test before my appointment..?
  • POST menstrual syndrome?!?

    (Im 21 btw) Ok, so I've always dealt with pretty intense pre-menstrual syndrome (cramps, back pain, bloating etc) but in the last few months I've also been experiencing symptoms AFTER my period, albeit different ones. I did google if this is a thing, and apparently it is, but from the very limited info available on p(ost)ms it seems as though either pre or post occurs but not both. Lately I've def had pre but the post is almost worse: I cant eat for a good week after my period stops because....

    Should I be worried about iron deficiency?

    I had my period on May 13th- 18th and then 11 days later I had my period again on May 29th- June 4th and now 9 days later I have my period again on June 13th. I'm really irregular at the moment and my periods are very long and too close together. So should I be worried about iron deficiency? Or anything else because I'm menstruating so much?

    Irregular Periods

    I am 18 year old and am concerned with my periods. My periods would come every week and stop for about 2 or 3 days only. When explaining this to my doctors they all had no explanations. I was given blood test and results cane back normal. Since, I have been on several types of birth control pills. The pills usually last a few months before my body just starts bleeding in between periods again. During this time I am really shaky and weak. I recently have been fine but now I'm bleeding in between....

    I have been feeling so out of it lately? PMS related?

    I have had an aching head, as if there is high pressure. A little bit of neck pain. It hurts more when I lay down. I have felt detached from my body and reality, as if life feels like a dream. My vision has been spotty, not bad, but I see those eye floaters and I have been experiencing a lot of anxiety and depressed emotions. I am on my period, and these symptoms have started occuring about 4 days ago, right before my period started. I feel so out of control and crazy. I wake up every morning hoping....

    What's going on with my period?

    I'm a 29 year old woman and my periods have always been very regular since I started them at 14. However a few months ago, they started to become irregular. My period was 2 weeks late and I definitely wasn't pregnant as my partner has had a vasectomy. I felt like my period was imminent (cramps etc) but it only arrived the morning after sex with my partner. Now my current period arrived 10 days late and again only started after I had sex with my partner. Any ideas what could be going on? I....

    Why do I have spotting and cramping 11 days after my period ended?

    I am on birth control pills (Trinessa Lo Tabs 28). I am in the 2nd week of a 28 day pack. I had sex during the week of May 7-13th. My period started on May 13th and it ended on May 18th. It was 6 days, which is very unusual because on the pill my period is usually 3 days. Yesterday (May 29th) I started spotting 11 days after my period ended, I am still spotting today (May 30th) and have cramps. I know that spotting can be a side effect of the pills but I have never experienced that side effect before....
