    Good evening. How often do you see your period and how long does it last? Are you on any or have you had form of contraceptive? Any abortion in the past? have you had any child? Any lower abdominal pain or vaginal discharge? Any headache, dizziness or nipple discharge? Ovulation tales place 14days from your last menstrual cycle.

    Thank you for answering, (1.)My period has been monthly this year but cycle isn't regular (may be 45days or less), except in June (missed & wasn't pregnant)..and sometimes lasts 7days or more (usually light); but it has been 5days since July (normal quantity).. (2) I stopped contraceptives early 2010.. (3)Yes, abortion in Jan 2011 (8weeks old).. (4)No pregnancy/child since then.. (5)Yes, abdominal pains & discharge (usually white, no odour).. (6)Yes, headaches and dizziness most times, no nipple discharge.

    It seems you have secondary infertility probably due to infection of your reproductive system (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease). This is suggested by the abdominal pains and vaginal discharge which has also caused your periods to be irregular. Let a gynaecologist have a look at you. You would probably do hormonal tests and Abdominopelvic USS. Also go with your husband so he can also be treated for any infection. Your partner has to be involved in the treatment of infertility.

    I forgot to mention, I already went to a hospital abt 3wks ago and did tests and even tested the discharge..then the doctor said the only they found was a yeast infection that every other thing looked normal. Then prescribed Gynotab and Diflucan 150mg for me; My partner was diagnosed with urinary infection instead and was given his own set of drugs..But my period came 15th dis month; last month was 20th..Is it still within normal range?
    Dr. Gbenga A answered:

    The normal menstrual cycle ranges between 21-35 days, and usually lasts 3-5days. So it is normal if you menstrual period started 15th of last month and the next one 20th of this month.

    Goodmorning Doc, today is day 22 of my cycle and I'm not having period symptoms(normally I start cramping with swollen breasts abt a week b4)..except yesterday when I woke up, I felt really dizzy for abt 2hrs and I've been bloated also. What should I do? I don't want my period to be irregular again.
    Dr. Gbenga A answered:

    Good afternoon. Do you mean 22days from your Last menstrual period? It is not unusual for period to be delayed due to stress, weight loss etc If you are feeling dizzy and bloated you should see a doctor and be sure you are not pregnant.

    Yes 22 days after last period..but will a pregnancy test be accurate now? Isn't it too early to test? Or should I just wait a little while and watch if other symptoms arise?
    Dr. Gbenga A answered:

    Yes, it may be too early to test, however, in pregnancy period is absent . More emphasis on the fact that you have to see a doctor because of the other symptoms you complained of

I jst hope I'm not being paranoid

    Good afternoon. What you have described sounds like a thyroid problem. I suggest you see an endocrinologist for complete assessment.

    Goodevening doc..my period is abt 2wks late nw..no period or pregnancy symptoms., abdominal pain, white discharge(no foul odour), nausea and a negative pregnancy test.. I'm confused.

    Good evening. Have you seen a Gynaecologist or Endocrinologist, if so what was advised? Abdominal pain and discharge with late period sounds like PID ( Pelvic Inflammatory Disease). You need to see a specialist.
