Weird Periods Watch

Please keep anon or delete.

I have been having periods for over three years now, and not only am i still not having them regularly, but for the last few months they have all been roughly five weeks apart, and recently they have increased to over six weeks apart. I am a virgin, so i have never taken the pill.

At the moment i'm not really complaining about the long gaps because it means i have less periods than most people, but i am concerned about what this strange pattern actually means, e.g. is there something wrong with me? Does this mean i'm going to have trouble if in the future i decide i want a baby?

I have to go and see a doctor in December anyway so i shall ask about this then, but i was wondering if anyone on TSR has the same as me, or has any idea about what could be causing this/what consequences there might be?

Has your diet changed at all? This can sometimes have an effect on your periods.

Apart from that I don't know, checking with your doc is a good idea. :]

I wouldn't worry about it too much.
Mine are always 2 months apart, and not entirely regular, as well.
I've seen a doctor about it, nothing wrong.

Well, I had irregular periods for a few years after I started having periods. It's normal for your body to take its time to adjust to changes It's probably nothing to worry about but see a doctor if you're still worried.

Nope, my diet and weight have hardly changed at all for the duration of the last three years.

Have you considered PCOS? or hyperthyroidism? Both well known for causing periods to be irregular.

It's perfectly normal for the length of your cycle to change gradually over time, it will probably continue to do so for the next 30 years. It is sudden and violent changes that need to be investigated. I am sure that hardly anyone has exactly regular cycles for the whole of their adult life.

A period can be every 28 - 35 days.

I got mine last month, but before that i hadn't got it for like 4 months, and before that probably about another 4 if not more. I'm now waiting to see if i'm going to get it this month now but they've always been so irregular with me.. i first got my period about 3 years ago and i've probably got my period about 10 ish times??
I haven't got it checked out either although i probably should, i dunno?
