I am 22 years old, I have a very regular cycle. Last month I started my period on the 13/04 and 17/04 (which is normal), but then I started again on19/04 and finished on 24/04 and then I started again on 26/04 and ended the 30/04. The last two times I got it, it was not like normal, it was when I urinated and was very strong. It is now the 17/05 and I have not received my period. Should I be worrying. The last time I had unprotected sex with my husband was 8/04, but still sexual active with protection. Does anyone have advise for me?

Hi Loli-

Any time you have unprotected sex you risk pregnancy. I don't quite understand whether you are trying to get pregnant or avoid pregnancy from your question.

Your cycle is sounding very irregular. I think it might be wise to do a pregnancy test and see if that is what's happening with you. When you use an over-the-counter test, be sure and read the instructions carefully, because they are not the same for every test. If you don't follow the directions, you could have a false result.

Even if your test is not positive, I suggest you call your gynecologist. You are pretty young and that is a big change in your cycle. It's a good idea to get checked out and be sure you don't have any kind of health issue there. A little irregularity is very common, but 4 short periods in one month is not.

We get a lot of questions similar to yours. Perhaps reading the discussions will help you: http://www.empowher.com/condition/menstrual-cycle

Good luck to you.
