Hi All,
I am 22 years old, and have been having a few problems with my menstrual cycle. If I get to into detail I am sorry I just want everything to be covered. I started my period when I was about 11 years old, and they have been pretty normal other then the first few years they were a little longer lasting about 8 days or so. As a got older they got shorter average 4-6 days. I have been sexually active since I was 16, and was with that boyfriend 3 years. I have only had sex with him and one only other guy whom was a friend of a friend which was totally unplanned for and I regretted after(this was March 2009). It was unprotected Sad In October 2009 I went and saw my doctor and got an exam/STD testing. The pap was normal and she only tested me for two STD's which where both negative. Before that I noticed a small growth on my outer vagina, I asked her what it was she said it was nothing and not to worry about it. My period was normal although I skipped July's but got in early in August, she told me it was probably just stress(which I was under a lot at the time). On Jan. 19th 2010 I had sex three times the same day unprotected(I know he is clean) with my ex (the guy was with for three years). It was a little painful and I bled a little. I don't know if it was just to ruff or what. I spotted until I got my normal period(5 days) on the 23rd of Jan. I have been spotted not badly just enough to be annoying. I have not had a real period since the Jan. one. I have been spotting off and on shades of browns, pinks and some red. I do have some breast tenderness, bloating/pressure, and a little cramping. My growth seems a little larger about 3/4 to 1 inch long. It's hard and not really painful if I squeeze it brownish pink fluid leaks out. I emailed my doctor about on getting my period, and she told me it is probably from exercising ( which I have only been doing since the end of March) so I slowed down but it seems to be less spotting when I am not exercising. I was just trying to be healthier. I have taken a pregnancy test every month I don't get it. I plan to go to the doctor at the end of May if I miss my May period. I just feel that doctors just try to rush you in and out I don't really care. She told me in my email it's probably nothing(which it probably isn't) and shouldn't worry, but what if it is something. Missing three periods isn't nothing IMO but I am not a doctor. I have been looked over in the past for something else by four doctors who told me it was nothing and a year later I had to have surgery on my hand which could have been taken care of much earlier. I just feel so rushed and looked over no matter how many doctors I go to. I just feel they may miss something that could be important. I don't know what to do Sad
