I've had lower back pain around my hip area, nausea, and I feel uncomfortable. My mom said I'm about to start my period, but I missed a period for 7 months, and had pink discharge for a few days. I haven't seen the regular full flow of my period for a while. I just want to know if this is normal, and since I've only had 3 normal cycles if this will soon get better. Help. Thanks :) BTW: I'm 15, and I'm not sexually active.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your irregular periods could be due to anovulatory cycles (menstrual cycles without periodic egg release from ovary). As you grow up and pass through puberty, your cycles change to being ovulatory ones (menstrual cycles with periodic egg release from ovary) which are regular cycles and with proper bleeding. Wait and watch for your periods. Maintain good diet and hydration.
