Question: Too Frequent Periods!


 miss - Sun May 29, 2005 12:53 am

Hi

I am 24 years old. I normally have quite regular light periods normally every 5 weeks, they barely bother me at all. Over the last period of Time since March this year I have had my period every two weeks and most recently started again yesterday with a unusually heavy period when my last one only finished 8 days ago.

These are the approximate dates
March 19th - 23rd
April 20th - 24th
May 1st - 4th
May 15th - 18th
May 28th - now

I am not on the pill and I am sexually active. I went to the doctor last week and had a pap smear done. I am just very concerned that something bad may be causing this bleeding.

Please give me some feedback on what would be best to do. I am very concerned. Is there something I can advise my doctor on what tests to be done. I would prefer to gain as much as possible before going to the doctor. Thankyou for you response, it will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Hi!
Have faith on your doctor and do accordng to his advice. From your history it seems you are suffering from polymenorrhea which is not necessarily abnormal so stop worrying!
