User Profile
I have an irregular menstrual cycle. I used to miss periods for months at a time. I was put on birth control to regulate it and for a while it did but then it stopped, so I stopped using it a little less than a year ago. Just recently I have started having periods two weeks apart which is physically wearing me down. In addition to normal menstrual cramps, I am having an additional lower abdomen cramp, which feels more like a sports cramp, and persist every time I walk. Should I be concerned? This is my third period in one month and a half.

Hi there, thank you for posting your question on Ehealthforum. This is not intended as a substitute to visiting your own doctor.

Yes, I'm afraid that you should be concerned. You need a diagnosis -- blood tests fro hormone levels and an Ultrasound to rule out Polycystic Ovarian Disease and so on. You need to see a gynecologist now.

Dr Andrew Rynne.
