im 17 and me and my boyfriend use the pullout method ive been rather moody lately .im usually about 2-3 days early and it has always been this way since i was 12-13 ive never had irregularitys before so im a bit worried and now im getting my period every 34 days. my eating habits have not changed and theres no real stress factors in my life. the women in my family have a history of cancer in that region and have to get historectomies (sry about the spelling) .
im curous as to whats wrong or as to whats happening im aware that the pullout method is not reliable .i dont have a family doctor and i do not want to consult my mother just yet.

First let me say that withdrawal is not a reliable form of birth control and you can most definitely become pregnant this way. If you are going to have sex please at least purchase some condoms. Otherwise, you can go to a Planned Parenthood in your area and they will set you up with whatever form of birth control you feel is best for you that is also reliable.

Menstrual cycles evolve over a lifetime. So as you age they change a little here and there. You don't say you missed a period so it may just be that your cycles are becoming a little longer. That would not indicate a health problem necessarily. Remember your body is not a machine, so things are not always precise and can change a bit from month to month and year to year. I would not be concerned about this if you have not missed a period.

Thank you for your question and please, please take control of your sex life and get on a reliable method of birth control. Good luck.
