So I've had my period for over five years, since I was 11, and it's always been pretty regular. I've also been on the pill for a year and a half to help really bad cramps. But just the other day I had my period for only two days. Its always been five to seven and on time. Should I be worried? I know on this site you keep saying its OK to be irregular, but I've had my period for five years now...
It might be an after
effect of your medicine, but I would talk to your doc about it just to be safe.
Even though it’s probably nothing to worry about, it’s good to get a pro

I tried tampons and they were a saving grace, they are not as bad as I thought and def worth a try

How do you know if your flow is heavy or light? It's not like you can compare with someone else.

Hey fbvb13, no your period won't stop if you don't continue taking pills. It may become irregular or how heavy or light it is might change. No worries though. Xoxo
I got my first period yesterday.... But a day b4 my doctor gave me Melatonin for my sleeping insomnia. It works great but I hear they were some type of hormone. I think it caused me to start which I'm perfectly fine with but if I stop the pills will my period? Because I didn't have many signs that it was coming anyways I just don't want my period to stop bcim14!!!!! Lynae P.

so I've had my period since the end of June last year and my cycle is averagely 32 days but this time I'm already 7 days late! I'm not sexually active of anything, but this is the latest it's every been! Do you think it's normal? Or what's up with it!? Lynae P.
by say.xoxo on 1/21/2012 6:07:16 PM
Does anyone know of the other ways of regulating our hormones other than being on the birth control pill? I thought that was the only way was to be on the pill but the article says there are other ways. One of my bff has been on the pill for a while to help regulate her periods and she said she has weird cravings during certain times and its all hormonal related.
by luckykel on 1/11/2012 10:58:04 PM
Hey emvhorses, yeah sounds like your period is on it's way. Be sure your mom gets you some pads and medicine just in case you get cramps. Xoxo

I am 11 and have had discharge for almost 2 WHOLE YEARS!!! I am also 110 lbs and 5'3. I have had boobs for almost 2-3 years. My mom had hers when she was 10 or 11. Do you think I'll have it soon? I also had the tiniest bit of blood when I wiped the other day. :-| Lynae P.

I am not on birth control but my cousin has been for a while and I have friends on it to regulate their periods and then others because they have bfs. I have been looking into it so I have been doing my searching and I have found some interesting facts.
1)50% more teens are on the pill than 10 years ago.
2)1 out of 5 teens 13 to 17 are on the pill.
3)Doctors are often prescribing the pill for girls 12 and 13 because of the pressures we are all dealing with.
More people are on it than you think, but just because you are on it doesnt mean you have to do anything, it just means you are being smart. Just thought you all wanted to know.
by luckykel on 11/28/2011 10:07:35 PM
yea the doctor put me on the pill too because of my period and it helps clear up acne on your face! its a win-win situtation lol. and its for "just in case i need them" ;)

when I get mine I take a hot bath for cramps and it calms my muscles down which relieves the cramps. My sister asked why I took so many showers and I told her and she thought I was crazy but the truth is she does the same thing

There is no reason to suffer. If its bad enough the doctor will suggest you getting on birth control. A few of my friends had to do it when they were really young like at 12 and 13, so if its out of whack you may need to get on the pill.
With one of them her dad knows and with the other her dad doesnt and we still talk about her not wanting her dad to find out because he may not let her do some of the things she is doing. But we all deal with things differently, and I wouldnt be embarrassed about getting on birth control because more people are on it than you think. Plus you may never know when you may need it for what it was really made for.

Nothingn helps my cramps. To the point where I look and feel so bad my guy friends ask what's up. And I get really short tempered. I always feel bad that the have tondeal with that throughout the month. Because more than 50% of my grade are girls. Yaaaa... Sucks to be them.
