I think it is the time to rush to your gynecologist and get a vaginal examination done. Bleeding for so long is risky and has to be treated on an emergency basis.

I have come on and off my birth control for the last two months because when I stop it I get my period a few days later. This time I didn t get my period so I stopped my birth control again and never got my period but about three days ago I have lower pelvic/ abdominal pain and if my little dog steps on my lower pelvic area or even sitting and getting up it hurts. Not pregnant and still no period. Should I worry?

So... although I am a virgin (no penetration), my boyfriend and I have had contact. And although he did not ejaculate near my vagina, I can t be sure there wasn t any pre-ejaculate. I know this is extremely rare, but I am a week late on my period. I took a test myself, negative... went and had a urine test done at planned parenthood... negative.... but I m still concerned. I am trying to induce my period so that I can stop worrying, but what do you suggest?

gluten intolerant
hi doctor,

I'm a 25 year old Asian woman. I have had constipation and acne problems all my life. I eat a lot of veggies, fruits and wholegrain. I've been taking fibre supplements too but nothing helped. In the last few years I also have irregular period, but this time its my longest (5 months since my last period). I've seen doctors and did blood test, they think I have pcos, but the ultrasound showed I have no cyist. Lastly I've heard about gluten intolerant, and this can lead to all my problems, is it true gluten can cause constipation, acne and miss period? how do I know for sure that I am allergic to gluten?

Thank you.

Hi. I am 34, exercise 6 times a week, and eat healthy. However, recently diagnosed with polycystic ovaries from a huge weight gain when pregnant (had baby 3 years ago). I also have pain just below my left pelvic bone (it gets worse when I stand up, or lean towards my left side), but no pain on touch, so doctors have said its just stress. But pain is getting worse. I am gluten intolerant, eat a clean G/F meal. But with the pelvic pain, I have also noticed that my poo is dark and pebbly (though soft), with a bit of blood every so often, and lots of visible mucus. Any insight will help- are these symptoms related? Is it just stress? Am I worrying for nothing? I am currently on metformin for the polycystic ovaries. Thanks.
