doctor, I first had my period when I was 12, and it has been quite regular. it became irregular for some months, but my mother claimed it to be just because I was still young and i still had time for it to settle down. i began to masturbate some years later (rubbing only) and my period has been extremely irregular. whenever it does come it is particularly heavy and continues on for sometimes longer than one week. inbetween periods can also be up to 3-5 months, if so longer. i have not had any sexual intercourse, just masturbation. is my irregular menstrual cycle related to masturbating? thank you for your time and answer.

Dee, your menstruation is controlled by your hormones. Masturbation does not affect the hormones that control your cycle. So NO, masturbation and orgasm does not affect your menstruation, ovulation or any part of your menstrual cycle.

Some girls seemingly start their flow a bit earlier or bleed a little bit later if they orgasm right before or after their menstrual flow. The reason is that the contractions of the uterus during orgasm will push out some 'lose' blood. This is however not what you are describing.

Your mom is correct. During puberty your cycles can be very irregular and unpredictable. For most girls it will however become regular after a while. After a few years, having cycles that are 3 months long is however not natural. Of course there are many other factors that can affect your cycles as well: Low BMI, low body fat, super fitness, strenuous exercises, poor health, poor nutrition and others.

Talk to your mom again. If you are worried about it, a doctor should take a look at your hormone levels to make sure everything is fine and there is not some problem.

Best of luck!

My god! We have the same problem. I'm also masturbating everyday sometimes I got a pillow or anything that would satisfy me. Is that responsible for having my menstruation late? Thanks.

Zeddd, masturbation, sex and orgasms does NOT affect your menstrual cycle. Just like rubbing any other part of your body does not affect it. Just the opposite is normally true, certain phases in menstrual cycle can affect your desire for sex and orgasms. For example during ovulation or before your period.

Was your cycle regular at some stage? Are you old enough to expect a regular cycle?

Zedd, at almost 18 your cycles should be more regular. Various things can delay it, most of these affect your hormones. Your cycles are almost completely controlled by your hormones. Things that can affect your hormones:

Poor health
Super fitness
Low body fat
Stress and worry
Medicines
Conditions like diabetes
Pregnancy (masturbation cannot get you pregnant however)

Anothr culprit is ovarian cysts (PCOS/PCOD). If you are overweight, have an enlarged clitoris, having extra body hair growth (face/hands/arms) or hair loss (in the same pattern as men does), there is a chance that you may have PCOS.

A doctor will need to examine you to determine why this is happening.

Best of luck!

The medicine is more than likely plain birth control pills. These are used to control PCOS.

PCOS is the reason for your lack of period and it needs to be treated to reduce the androgen hormones in your body. Please talk to your mom again.

Masturbation and Menstrual cycle flow length
I am in a group and we are talking about masturbation and the menstrual cycle. Some of the women in the group said that if one masturbates during their period, it will shorten the time they are on it, is that correct?

Here is the theory:

When you orgasm, your uterus contracts. These contractions and menstrual cramps are the same type of thing, one just more pleasurable. Menstrual cramping is the uterus wall contracting to shed the lining. So having a pleasurable orgasmic contraction will do the same thing, and it may even speed up the shedding. The contractions, and the natural movement of your uterus will also cause a menstrual 'flood', pushing out the debris quicker than gravity will do it. So it is quite conceivable to shorten your flow by having an orgasm, or two, or three.

An orgasm shortly before your period can make it start a bit earlier, and an orgasm shortly after can make your period start again for a bit.

There are also some research that indicated that an orgasm during menstruation can reduce your risk for endometriosis. This is however not so clear cut.

Lastly, orgasms are fun. It can reduce your cramps, make you feel good, lift your mood, relax you and make you sleep better. So feel free to experiment and find out if you get any benefits. It does not matter if you orgasm from intercourse or masturbation.

Take care, and feel free to report back if you or your group get any benifit from it. It will be interesting to also get some real life feedback.

For irregular periods, you will have to see your doctor. It is normally due to hormone fluctuations or some physical condition. Hormone issues are caused by stress, medicines, nutrition, health or fitness/body weight. Physical issues are most often due to ovarian cysts (PCOS).

It is important that you keep track of the dates your periods start. Take this list of start dates with you to your doctor.

Cycles between 21 and 35 days are considered normal. And even if your cycles differ by 9 days, they are still considered regular. A longer or shorter cycle once in a while is not a problem.

Unless there is something big wrong (very unlikely), irregular cycles are most often treated with birth control hormones.

Regular masturbation does not have anything to do with your cycles. If anything, it is healthy and good for you. It helps you relax and sleep, it provides a safe way to deal with your sexual urges, it keeps your genitals 'fit', it teaches you about your body and sexuality and it releases various good hormones in your brain and blood when you orgasm. The urge to masturbate is also a sign of a healthy sex drive and general health.

Best of luck!

How often did you have your period before this?

Your period is controlled by your hormones. Things that can affect your hormones are:

* medicines
* worry and stress
* weight loss
* low body fat
* hard exercise and super fitness
* physical problems like ovarian cysts (PCOS)
* pregnancy
* menopause

I will suggest you see your doctor after you miss your period a secon time (so after 3 months)
