I am 30 years old. I've never really had irregular periods. I also never count days in between, but yesterday i started my 3rd period since a month ago. Not sure if has anything to do with it or not but I hurt pretty bad during sex with my husband. I also can not have sex two days in a row. If I do, I feel like I am seriously dying. Somebody please help.

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
I'm so sorry to hear you're experiencing these symptoms. I am a bit unclear on the pattern of your menstrual cycle. Please be a bit more clear on the menstrual cycle you are experiencing and I'd love to give you helpful information.
Do you mean to say that you have had periods for the past 3 months? Or do you mean that you have been bleeding for 3 weeks straight?
In regards to having painful sex, if it is not related to vaginal dryness you may have a more serious problem such as in infection. I suggest that you see a gynecologist and get a pap smear.

Since the beginning of July, I have had a normal period, about 4-5 days, every two weeks. A period is suppose to be like every 28 days, right? I've pretty much always had a normal period up until the first of July, now it's 14 days between, if that.
