Unhappy HELP!! Irregular periods??

Hello this is my first post .... i was woundering if any one could help me with some problems? I am nervous to post this :/
Ok so i started my period when i was 12 or 13 and it was irregular.. i would have it for about 3 days out of the month and it wasent consistant on which days it came.. then i didnt have a period for about 4 to 5 months and my mom took me to the doctor and they did a prego test and obviously i was not pregnant..so they told me to come back in a couple of months if i didnt start to do more tests. It started.. but it lasted for about 5 to 6 months and i was pale, tired and weak. they put me on birth controll. They took me off about a year later to see if my body could regulate by its self.. it did for about 5 periods(5 to 6 months). Then it stopped in my freshman year when i was 14 so the date was probably april of 2011 and it didnt start till about Jan-Febuary of this year.
Im 15 almost 16 and have been on my period for about 8 1/2 months now it'll be heavy for about 2 weeks and then light for a coupple days i am pale and tired but i think by body has gotten used to being on my period... my last doctor thinks i have PCOS because of my irregular periods and i am having problems with my bowels.. but in PCOS you have few to no periods and bowel probs along with other symptoms. My emotions are all over the place ill start crying out of no where or be mad/ depressed. If your reading this im sorry i typed so much! D:
My mom says if i dont have cysts on my overies i might have to have a historectomy. I was woundering what do you think?? Oh and im not sexually active!( and i say this because girls my age are) And since my recent move to kansas from missouri i dont have a doctor any more.

Re: HELP!! Irregular periods??

Hi Katydawn, Oh No you dont worry about a hysterectomy. This happened to me when i was a sophomore in high school. And, medicine has advanced so much since then, there were no in vitro, etc.lol If you were my daughter, i would take you a dr called a gynecologist. Ob/gyn has equipment in office to do ultrasound to check ovaries for multiple cysts if you even have one. At age 16, the BC pills messed me up just like you & they had to give me them again to stop bleeding for 3 months. When i didnt start for few months they gave me pills that i took for 10 days, then i started. 2 times & then i was ok.Have kids, Im fine. It takes longer for some people to get regular. Your bowels? What kind of trouble? Your weight can have affect on hormones, too. Too thin or too heavy. I was a dancer & active, this can affect it too. All affect the hormones that are in control of your period. Your body has many hormones controlled by endocrine glands. Pituitary, thyroid, ovaries, adrenals & they control your period & puberty,too. Eat right & dont miss meals. Get plenty of sleep.We will talk more after you tell me about this all when you tell me about your tummy. Ok? Remember,all these things & way more may need testing before you worry one bit. You cant embarrass me so dont be yourself. Let me know & I
will be here. Also, what kind of dr did you see? Between you, me , the dr,
your mom this will be ok. Thank you, gmak

Ps, you need a new dr to check you now, do an ultrasound, check endocrine hormones,see if you are anemic. Why hasnt your mom made an appt? Whatever the reason maybe i can help with ideas or your school nurse.




Ps your emotions feeling out of control indicates hormonal, too.

Re: HELP!! Irregular periods??

Thank you for posting back.
I do online school, im a sophmore, I get headaches all the time about by stomach...it seems like some of the food i eat make my stomach hurt real bad, it feels like when you twist a balloon and let some of the air squeeze in to the other side. And other times it feels like stabbing pains on right to my belly button and most times on the left and i have cramps in my lower abdomen..i have noticed that certain foods make my stomach hurt, popcorn,beans,milk and sometimes bananas and then just random other food do to also i do the #2 about every2 to 3 days and its not alot. The doctor i was seeing was a pediatrition no other doctors could take me because im not over 18, any ways i was told to take laxitives and i had been taking ducolax and it worked,i would say the best, But about 4 days ago i took 5 thats more than your supposed to ( i have taken that many before they worked great) I waited to see if i would have a bowel movement but..nothing for 2 days, is this serious? I took some castor oil on the 6th and i went but why didnt the other laxitives work?
My mom has Crohns Colitis, diabetes, and gastrophenesis. Her doctors name is Terromina and hes supposed to specalize in tummy probs. He cant see me because im not 18 , we were woundering if crohns can passed down in genetics? i have not seen a doctor since maybe... june of this year and since we moved my insurance didnt get switched over so were having to re apply. Shes been really sick( she went to the er yesterday) thats why i dont have an appt.
My mom says that if this free clinic she went to cant get me in quick enough then shes going to take me to the er. Do you think this is serious enough to go to the er now?

Re: HELP!! Irregular periods??

Katydawn, Sorry this is so late!! Wrote post but token ran out??? So, yes, autoimmune diseases can be passed down. Im in complete remission. I had ulcerative colitis. First, i think with all your problems it would take testing to see what is wrong. Idk what is available @ free clinic. I dont think a 60 bed, rinky dink private hospital would be much help diagnostically. A multi faceted, big hospital with a pediatric gastroenterologist, gynecologist, pediatric neurologist all under one roof is the answer. These are the kinds of drs that I think you need to see, imho. You have symptoms that may or may not be serious. Headaches, irregular periods. Possible crohns/colitis,appendicitis,lactose intolerance, irritable bowel syndrome, ovarian cysts, laxative tolerant etc require a dr or two that can do a CT scan of abdomen, CBC & other blood work, MRI of head, pelvic ultrasound, urinalysis,etc for a start. So, if you are in any condition that makes you feel pain, fever, vomiting then go to ER where these types of tests can be performed, I think. Now, general info, imho. Crohns/ UC hallmark symptoms are diarrhea & cramping pain. Bloody diarrhea, if you eat anything it comes right out. Irritable bowel syndrome- bouts of constipation vs. diarrhea, intestinal cramps, bloating, gas etc. I dont think heriditary. No laxatives!! You can become dependent on them & you cant poo or get urge to poo. Yuk! No castor oil! You are 15 years old!!! Glycerin suppositories get hard stool out do that all can pass. Not for everyday, but when you are miserable from normal symptoms of constipation. Going#2 at your age doesnt have to be everyday, 2-4 days is fine as long as you are moving around like a normal, active teenage person, eating fiber filled foods like celery, oatmeal, raisin bran,beans, peas, fruits & veggies. Broccolli, cabbage,beans etc give you gas. Fiber in powder, capsules, pills @ drugstore, stool softeners, no laxative @ all on the label, imho. Pain in R side can be appendicitis. Classic symptoms are fever, knees drawn up, rebound pain which means that when you push in it hurts. But, when you let go from pushing it hurts way more, radiating, non-cramping, constant pain that shoots to belly button, vomiting, high WBC count on your CBC, blood chemisty off, etc. It could be an ovarian cyst. Your symptoms are
complicated but may or may not be serious. It will take drs & tests to get
the right diagnosis. Please let us know anything about anything if you think we can help in any way. I truly care about your health, so keep posting! Thank you, katydawn:) I truly hope thay you get better. Will pray for your mom too. :angel: ps: also,county or sometimes city hospitals have social workers that work on getting you medicaid, the hospital its money, while
you get cared for & well. Some Catholic hospitals also have free care or payment on a sliding scale, Bless you, katydawn.

Dear katydawn, seeing blood from hard stool & seeing bloody diarrhea not the same. Razor blades from your backed up stool tearing you when it comes out possible. Laxatives are bad for you. You eventually get where your own body wont or cant push it out anymore. With inflammatory bowel disease in your history, even though you never told me if you ever have diarrhea, & this laxative thing & pain yoir most immediate need, imo is to find a new pediatrician pronto. ERs stabilize people only until the person can get a dr appt or they admit you & call in drs.Describe facilities in your area for me please? Hospitals, all of them, size, private, county, catholic? Doctors? Do you have access to regular family drs or access to specialists? What kind of specialists?

Ps not that you cant go because of insurance. But describe medical care in
your area. Corn fields & 1 family dr for 100 miles?or what size & kind(as asked above)of medical care can you get to distance wise? Katy, FIBER & water.

Dearest katy, i saw that you hugged me. Thank you. Whats happening with you now? Did you go to Er? Free clinic? Start period? Hows constipation? , glycerin shouldnt burn very bad @ all. Bisacodyl suppositories will tear up up, imo. Please tell me if you are still sick because I think together
with your mom we can figure this out, to find a way for you to be seen by someone. Please let me know. Thank you.

Hi katy, Im still here & saw your name & im so sorry that you are still sick & on your period. Im glad that you came back to post. When is the move to Oklahoma? And, btw, its your urinary bladder or just "bladder" thats below your belly button, the gallbladder is above under the right ribs by the liver, a common mistake. When i had my gallbladder removed my kids told everyone that i had my bladder removed!Lol You dont sound like you feel good, when you say pain is it aching, cramping, all the time, off & on?
