Question: irregular period


 loveskiwigirrl - Sat Sep 04, 2004 11:31 am

HI,
I am 23 and have never had a regular period. I was on birth control until last year when I decided to stop taking it. Since November I have had 3 maybe 4 periods. What could be causing this? Should I be worried?

User avatar Yes I think you should consult a gynecologist on this. There are many causes for irregular menstruation and some important ones need to be excluded.

Best regards,
