    Irregular period

    I'm a fifteen-year-old girl, and I've been having problems with what I thought was just an irregular period. My periods tend to last 3-4 days with no cramps and is usually heavy at the beginning and gets lighters in the last few days.

A week after my second period I've been having a lot of brown discharge, and I feel as though I'm....

    Uterine polyps?

    Ok so I always noticed spotting or brown discharge for as long as I could remember between my periods but my mother always told me that is normal. So never thought to question the doctor. The last 2-3 years I noticed like a light period in between my periods. At first I just went to my GP he ordered ultrasound, regular pelvic and transvaginal one. They came back with a possibly mass on my uterus, so my GP sent me back for another TV ultrasound on specific day of my cycle and that one came back normal....

    Shortened Cycle & Anovulation

    I am a 30 yr old, no children but have been trying for 5 yrs intermittently. After 2 yrs of 55-60 day cycles, Ive had a 62, 54, 45 and now 32 day cycle...the closest to normal I’ve ever seen. But from lengthy to now normal, I’ve NEVER seen a positive ovulation test even with daily testing. I suspect that’s why I’ve never gotten pregnant. Was tested for PCOS and told I didn’t have it and all hormone levels are normal. So aside from 3 VERY small fibroids that my dr says are too small to operate on....

    Heavy Menstrual Cycle

    I stopped taking birth control pills within this past year and now my menstrual cycle is back to twice a month. I also use 20 super long overnight Always pads within the first 24 hours and then I go down to about 15 on my second day and then gradually slow down. The entire 8 days I can go through 3 to 4 packages of the overnight pads. There will be times that my cycle will stop for one day and I will have not one drop but then the very next day I'm bleeding heavy again. When I was on the pill....
