Routine Periods

Monday, February 16, 2015


Question

Is it normal to start your period only 19 days into your cycle? My period almost always comes later than every 28 days, but it is typically unpredictable. I'm not sexually active or using any type of birth control. The only medication I'm taking is for an underactive thyroid.

Missed Period

Wednesday, January 21, 2015


Question

I have a question concerning my period. I have been on Emoquette/Apri birth control pills for about five years. I have missed a period here and there during that time but I have missed my period now two months in a row. Last month I had some gooey like brown stuff that came out instead of blood but this month there is absolutely nothing. I have had the usual symptoms of my periods each week when they are supposed to come. I am sexually active but my boyfriend does not use protection (however he does pull out). I try my best to take the pill at the same time everyday but some days I do forget until later in the day (not often do I forget). I don't believe I would be pregnant because I have done nothing differently in the last five years of being sexually active but I could take a test if suggested. What else could it be and should I go see a doctor or wait another month to see if it comes next month? I hope you might be able to give me some insight. It would be much appreciated.

Need a Plan B?

Question

I recently had sex with my boyfriend. He was wearing a condom and ejaculated in it. Although afterwards he went in for like a second after taking off condom and I stopped him. I realize he could still have had cum when he went in without putting on another condom. Should I take the Plan B pill?

I am a 20 year old female I have recently been seeing bumps on my vagina that usually pop after a few days with blood and puss. Some are small and some are big. Some bumps form around pubic hair. They don't itch, but sometimes hurt. I am not sexually active, and I am still a virgin. What could this be? Could I go to Student Health & Wellness for this issue?
