Hello and welcome,

Please do not worry so much.

The common reasons for this are hormonal imbalances that are usually minor and can be dealt with a little bit of regular exercise and following a healthy diet rich in fruits and cereals and avoiding fat and sugars. Atleast 20 minutes exercise daily is needed.
Other reasons are stress and ovarian cysts. So meditation and yoga are very helpful in these cases.
So please try this for a few months and look for the results. If the periods continue to be troublesome then you will need a gynec evaluation, hormone tests and ultrasound to look for the cause.

Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.

Is it at all possible for me to be pregnant? I ALWAYS use condoms , sometimes with spermicide and none of my condoms have ever broken. I take the birth control pill but I miss some of them or take some late. I got my regular, heavy, 5 day period which ended last Sunday. This week I have been VERY tired and INTENSELY dizzy. I am slightly nauseated and my breasts may feel slightly more sensitive than usual. Is it possible to get pregnant if a condom does not break and is it possible for me to be pregnant based on my situation?

Recent questions on  HIV

Hello, 4 months ago i was diagnosed with prostatitis in China. During the treatment - which went on far too long because the doctors tried to cheat me out of my money - I developed small wart like bumps on my penis. I asked the doctor and he said it is nothing and not contagious.
While the prostatitis is gone, the 'warts' have started to spread and another doctor diagnosed them to be Molluscum Contaigiosum. I have no idea where i got this and I'm fairly sexually active.
My biggest concern now is that I might have AIDS. Because after reading up on prostatitis and molluscum contaigiosum, both diseases are said to often appear on AIDS patients.
I haven't shown any other HIV symptons and the last girl I had unprotected sexual intercourse with 4 months ago got diagnosed negatively for HIV 1 month ago.
Could it be that the molluscum contaigiosum appeared when my body was pumped full of antibiotics for the prostatitis treatment and now refuses to go away?

My concern is that only when I have been having an errection which is many times in the day. I have a clear fluid or precum dischage. I am working overseas and have not been with a woman for 6 months so when I think of my new never been with girlfriend or speak with her on the phone I get an errection and I have a lot of liquid discharge. I have not been with this woman and I am very stressed and concerned. Is it because of my age. No deceases detect except for the herpes which I was told that I had come in contact with someone and I had it it at some point of time. HIV 1&2 Negative. I have no problem with getting an errection or holding it for a good amount of time. Help please dont want to lose the girlfriend I have yet to meet.
