Why Do I Have An Irregular Menstruation Cycle?
Dear BeingGirls Experts, I get a white discharge, and I haven't seen my period now for two months. The doctor is saying that everything is fine, but I feel like I have an infection. Can you please help me find out what my problem is? This is very important to me because I feel like I can't even have kids now. Natalie --- Dear Natalie, Having an irregular menstrual cycle, including the period, is totally normal during the first years after you start menstruating. Keep a menstrual calendar and record each period, including the flow pattern. Bring the calendar in with you when you have your next doctor's appointment and explain your irregular flow to him/her. It is normal to get a daily vaginal discharge. It begins a year or so before you start to menstruate and lasts for most of your adult life. This means you continue to have it even after you start having periods. Some days during your cycle the discharge is wet and liquidy, other days it is thick and ropey. If you don't like the way it feels or you want to protect your panties, try wearing a pantiliner each day. The pantiliner will absorb the vaginal discharge and help you feel fresh and dry. If your discharge has changed color and is yellowish/greenish or has an unpleasant odor or causes vaginal itching, you may have an infection. Let your gynecologist/healthcare provider know so you can find out the best treatment option. Hope this is helpful, Your BeingGirl Experts
