Hello doctor,

I had my period 15 days after my previous one. Normally, my periods are irregular, they are 10 to 15 days late or sometimes early, but not 15 days after the old one. Is it normal? I did not have sex but was close with my fiance just two days after my previous periods. His penis was on my vaginal part but was not inserted and neither did he ejaculate there, and then I had my periods 15 days after the previous one. I read that implantation bleeding also occurs like the period and is hard to distinguish. My period lasted for 5 to 6 days, and the bleeding was normal. What can be this? Was it a normal period?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

As you have described your history that irregular periods are already there. You are a teenager as well could have some irregularities in cycles as the phase of development but continuous irregular cycles need to be investigated actually. Strict diet, strenuous exercise, hormonal imbalance, illness, medications, contraceptives all can delay periods actually. For pregnancy, a single sperm can help to conceive otherwise in case of hormonal imbalance women used to take medications, extra health precautions for years to conceive. So it is luck as well.

For safe side, you can have serum beta hCG (blood pregnancy test) to check your pregnancy status. If it comes negative, then you can have combined oral contraceptive pills cyclically for three months to aid your menstrual imbalance. In case of a negative test of serum beta hCG, you can have a transvaginal scan and on day two periods can have blood tests (serum progesterone, testosterone, insulin, thyroid function test, prolactin), collect all results and can discuss here or with your local gynecologist as per your convenience. Blood pregnancy test will completely guide you correctly.
