MorganANderson posted:
hi, im 17 years old. when i started my periods i only had them every 4 months. then when i because sexually active consistently i got them every month on time, now my periods are late every month and the only time i get them is if i have sex. im really confused, when i went to my gynecologist she said just too lose weight and then come back but i dont think thats the problem. i have hair on my chest and chin that grows really fast and is visible if i dont shave every day. im only 17 this shouldnt be happening to me. if anyone has any advice i would really appreciate it.

I'm no expert on this but I was just diagnosed with PCOS. I got my period when I was 13 and never got it again. Im 16 now and get it because of the hormone pills my gynecologist put me on. I'm not extremely sure but it does kind of sound like PCOS. But what your gynecologist said was right. Losing weight might help diminish any period problems. And if you dont mind my asking, do you have any unusual darkness on the crevice of your neck? It's one of the side effects of PCOS and I have it.

Like I said, I'm no expert but I hope I helped in someway
