Strange phenomina

Recommended Posts

It's strange. This year my periods have been very, very irregular. I don't know why. I have not had sex and I'm not on the pill or anything like that.


Just a week after my regular period it just starts again. Can anyone explain this?

If you are not pregnant, other causes of missed or irregular periods include

Excessive weight loss or gain. Although low body weight is a common cause of missed or irregular periods, obesity also can cause menstrual problems.

Eating disorders, such as anorexia or bulimia.

Increased exercise. Missed periods are common in endurance athletes.

Extreme emotional stress.


Medications, such as hormonal birth control methods, which may cause lighter, less frequent, more frequent, or skipped periods.

Hormonal abnormalities, which cause fluctuating levels of the hormones needed to support menstruation.

Illegal drug use.

Problems with the pelvic organs, such as imperforate hymen, polycystic ovary syndrome, or Asherman's syndrome.

Breast-feeding. Many women do not resume regular periods until they have completed breast-feeding.
