Irregularity and infertility ?

User Profile
I have never had a regular period I started when I was 15 years old and I'm 19 now. I don't have any STD's. I go for months at a time with no period I have gone up to 9 or 10 months without one. & When I do get it its extremely heavy I go through a ultra/super o.b. tampon in 1-2 hours and pass clots every period. Except for the last period I had which was 2-3 months ago that period was very light i only had to change my tampon 2-3 times a day. Now after 2-3 months of no period I had a bit of clear discharge with pink in it about 3-4 days ago. But never started my period and now today i had it again except this time there was ALOT of clear discharge with some pink in it. What is this from? Is my irregularity a sign of infertility?..Im so confused any explanation for this?...by the way i haven't had sex since January or February.

Hello,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
The bleeding that you describe suggests some abnormality in hormones or ovaries or the endometrium. Has any work-up been done to see what the real issue behind your symptoms is?
Discuss about the abnormal bleeding pattern with your gynecologist, go ahead with investigations (hormonal analysis, pelvic ultrasound, and other blood tests) to look for the cause and get started with treatment to regularize your periods if indicated. The investigations will also reveal if there are any infertility related issues.
All the best.
