I am a 19 year old female. I am concerned about my menstrual cycle. About two weeks ago, I noticed spotting in my underwear. It went on for two and a half days. On the first day it was reddish, and on the second day, it seemed a bit brownish. I was supposed to get my periods four days ago. Last week, I felt slight cramping, and I was quite sure that my period would start, but it did not. On the same week that the spotting happened, my boyfriend and I were intimate. He was rubbing my genitals very very roughly, but we did not have sex. He did not even stick his finger in me. I am still a virgin.
A little background on my period and my health: I started my first period when I was 13. Since then, I have always had very painful cramps every time. Also, I would experience some nausea and diarrhea. The bleeding is somewhat heavy. I cannot remember if I have ever had a light period. My periods are sometimes irregular. But, they go back to normal by themselves. They would be late by a maximum of a couple of days or a week.
I have gotten my blood work done last spring, and everything was normal, except maybe a slightly elevated testosterone level, which my doctor concluded to be normal for my age. I was tested for polycystic ovarian syndrome, and I was negative for that. I was also tested for thyroid problems, and my doctor did not say anything was abnormal. I do not think I am anemic, but it does run in my mother's family. My mother was also diagnosed with stage two breast cancer last year. Other than that, I am healthy. I do not feel any other symptoms. I weigh around 51 kg, and I am 5 foot 3. I do not know if this piece of information will help, but I am a first-year medical student, and my stress levels have been extremely high lately.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
How are you doing? That was an excellent and elaborate history. You will do well in medicine. And, I am happy that I can use medical terms. Let me tell you though that the only significant part of this history was the high-stress levels which you laughed away.
Hope I have clarified your query. Do write back. All the best.
