Hey everyone. I am 16 years old and had my first period at the age of 12. It was always extremely regular, 28 days on the dot and it would last 5 days. I have always had horrible cramps for pretty much the whole 5 days of my period. In the last 4 months I've noticed really weird changes to my menstrual cycle.
First of all my period started coming only every 35-39 days.
And when it came it would sometimes last only 2 days or 8 days.
The awful pain I had gotten used to also went away. It's great but also weird. I barely get period cramps anymore. However, I get this other pain that is around pretty much all the time. It is a dull sometimes sharp pain in my lower abdomen. Around where I would get cramps but the pain feels different and it is around even when I'm not on my period.
I also get my period twice a month sometimes which is really weird. Like right now I'm on my period and I got it 2 weeks after it ended. Also, it is not going away. I've had it for 8 days and the bleeding comes and goes...
I am anemic and so weak all the time.
And now I also am nauseated all the time and can barely eat anything. I am loosing weight but my abdomen is super bloated. It looks like I'm 4 months pregnant and I'm a virgin so that's not an option.
I am also having UTI like symptoms that come and go. I feel like I have to pee every 5 minutes and it hurts to pee. Then the next day it goes away. This is a bit TMI and gross but I have pain inside my vagina. Like the opening. Not my urethra but my vagina. It doesn't ever go away. It hurts and it's really annoying. I don't know what this is just that it is so annoying and I have been to the hospital about the abdominal pain and nausea but they sent me home saying it's just a stomach bug. But it's not going away... any ways, I have talked to my mom about this and I'm going to the gynecologist at the end of the month. I just want to see if anyone else has had something similar. I couldn't help myself but to google search it and it comes up as ovarian cancer (which I am a risk factor for because of diabetes and my family history of breast cancer) and endometriosis. Thanks for your input ahead of time.
