Question: IRREGULAR PERIODS


 KAI - Mon May 09, 2005 11:44 am

I AM 24 YEARS OLD. I HAVE NOT HAD A PAP SINCE MY 3 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER WAS A BABY. I AM ONLY HAVING A PERIOD EVERY 4 TO 6 MONTHS. MY MOM HAD THE SAME PROBLEMS AS I DO. SHE ENDED UP HAVING A FULL HYSTERECTOMY, BECAUSE SHE HAD OVARIAN CANCER AT 31. I WENT TO MY FAMILY DOCTOR SHE SAID THAT THEY CAN NOT DO ANYTHING FOR ME UNLESS I GO MORE THAN 6 MONTHS WITHOUT MY PERIOD. SHOULD I WORRY ABOUT CANCER?
