I haven't had mine for a year and a half. My doctor said it's normal for me, but I'm concerned.

Mine is pretty much every 28 days. Never skipped one ever. I hate it. I need to start going on the Pill so I can skip them... I always say this every month and never get around to seeing a doc for it

Mine last about 6-7 days with pretty severe cramps.

Stupid question, but is there any way to like... naturally speed up your period so it only lasts like 4 days or something?

Kissmesweet- make sure you are eating your fruits and veggies-- there is actually an id'd condition linking with athletes/loss of period/and lack of nutrients
Thanks for that! I'll make sure I do eat more.

i've never had regular periods. i didn't even get mine until i was nearly 15. the longest it's ever lasted is three days, and sometimes i'll miss it for a few months or sometimes i'll even get it twice a month. i'm thinking this probably isn't a good thing.

what are the actual risks of losing your period for, say, a year?

^it depends on the reason the individual loses it but possible risk of infertility or osteoporosis.

Mine is pretty predictable. I'm on the pill so I can tell about when it's going to happen. That and I always have to pee a lot more frequently a few days before it starts...which is annoying.

I know cinnamon is believed to do that, but I have no idea in what amounts you have to eat it

I also know if you want to delay your period eat lots of lemon, very sour but it works!

Mine is always very painful.
I get very bad cramps....
esp. in my thighs that hurt so much it's hard to walk.
Luckily it's only painful the first day.
A midol or 3 usually helps.

It was much lighter and less painful when I was on the pill....
but IMO that was the only benefit of the pill for me.

ditto, the pill stops cramps completely before i went on it earlier this year i couldn't get out of bed with cramps as they had got so bad :/. otherwise the only cure for cramps is a hot water bottle and nurofen.

however the pill makes you crave food all the time, so i personally have to go to the gym now.

Let's see...I always know when my period's coming due the following symptoms

1)the obligatory sprinkling of white pimples all over my face
2) extreme moodiness and frustration
3) cravings (usually cupcakes and cheesy doritos are the junk foods of choice
4) random millisecond crampin.

I feel much much better when my period has started.

Also, as I have gotten older, my cramps have significantly lessoned. I rarely have cramps anymore (I'm not on birth control, nor have I had a baby). Believe me when I say this is truely a blessing.
