I am 20+ and worried about my periods.

Posted by nayanika @nayanika, Mar 17 4:34pm

Recently this month I've been facing menstruation for about more than 20 days now.I won't say it's heavy flow.I am also not facing any sort of stomach pain.3days ago it stopped but today again I found light bleeding . On the very onset of this month's periods,I wasn't very careful as always.I walked and get up from chair etc at haste.
Also 2-3years back,I was having an issue wherein I was not having periods for about two months.Doctor diagnosed that there was a small cyst as I was not into good exercise and Water (even now I am not into it). Treatment was done successfully that time.After that for 2 years I don't remember having any issue regarding periods.
Nowadays,I am sitting for long hours on a chair ; preparing for a exam to be held in May.

Can anyone mention the cause?

@nayanika Welcome to connect we all have different problems but try to help others. Have you gone back to your Gyn Dr You shouldn't be having that much bleeding I hope you get an appointment and have the gyn Dr see what is going on. Losing that much blood can have an adverse reaction on the body Please let us know and post back to us here we care

@nayanika– I know that this can be scary. Mine turned out to be a cyst on an ovary. Self-isolating does not stop you from getting medical help. Call your PCP and get another referral. You can certainly go out to see a doctor. Can you get a hold of your PCP?

PCP? I didn't hear about it earlier here in India.

@nayanika– GOod point. In America, a PCP is a primary doctor who gives referrals if you need a specialist.

@nayanika – thinking of you. How are you doing? Has any of the bleeding come back, or has it continued — stopped — as you mentioned a few days ago?

It has come back. The flow is again not heavy .No stomachache. I was on Homeopathy medication. I just don't know,if it is due to a minor irregularity in taking medicine for a day.Even the Ultrasonography lab is far from home . Can't go out . Lockdown in my country.

@nayanika – great that you saw a doctor. It is not unusual to have very irregular periods at your age. Stress is a factor too. Try to be more active and get up from sitting and walk around the house. Also, stay hydrated drinking plenty of water! When restrictions have eased up you can follow up with your doctor.
