Irregular period.
kiarasw91 posted:
Hi I hope someone can help.
I am 19 and started my period when I was 11 and it's still not regular.
My period skipped 2 months (September and October) This is the second time I've had it this month. The first time I was vomiting and I broke out in a cold sweat and had to call in and miss work. When it began it wasn't the normal bright red color it was a very dark red and almost brown, like it usually is at the end. It just recently started again and is the same dark brown color, but this time the cramps are minor and I have an intense headache. I'm not sure what the problem is. I'm not over or underweight, I'm not sexually active, I don't smoke or drink. I can't seem to figure out what's wrong. People keep telling me that birth control may be the only option. Can someone help?

how can stress affect having your period? My daughter is a law student and hasn't had her period in over six months. She is
healthy but did lose weight due to the stress of school. She was seen by a doctor who basically said she is healthy and her cycle should re-appear...that was two months ago.
