    Hi, i have not been getting my period for the past 2 or 3 months. Is this something serious? Also, i normally have very irregular periods but this is the first time that i've skipped this many months.

      Hi Sunny, there are a number of reasons why you might have missed a period. Stress, changes in body weight or exercise regimes, different medications, or a hormone imbalance could be at play here. Feel free to get in touch with more information, or if you aren’t sure what could be the cause, it might be worth paying your doctor a visit to have them check you over.

    I’m 16 w/ a very active life but w/ a very annoying period. It’s every 2 weeks for the full 7 days and my flow is supper heavy and I get bad headaches the first 2 days, nauseated, and cramping on my lower back and sides. I always feel gross and uncomfortable on my period. Is this all normal?

      Hi Taylor, we know that during our teenage years periods can often be heavier than normal and in many cases this sorts itself out as our hormones begin to calm down. However, although heavier bleeding can be quite normal in many cases, I would still recommend you talk to your doctor here as you may be at risk of becoming anaemic.

      Hi Babey, A lot depends on what age you are, what your previous pattern was, and if you are on any hormonal contraceptives. It is always best to check any changes with your doctor first. Best Wishes, Emma
