Dealing With Irregular Periods

The expert gynecologists at Pacific Women’s Center will help you resolve your menstrual irregularity.

Many women experience menstrual irregularity during their lives. Some women know exactly what day they will start, while others may not be able to predict the week. Your period will usually occur about every 28 days, but every woman is different.

While each woman may have a slightly different menstrual cycle, it’s important to know what’s normal for you. When you know your usual cycle, it will be easier to understand when there might be a problem.

If you have had a regular or predictable menstrual cycle in the past and experience any of the following, you should schedule a visit with your doctor at Pacific Women’s Center right away:

  • Missed period(s)
  • Shorter time between periods
  • Late period(s)
  • Abnormally long or short period
  • Menstrual flow that is much lighter or heavier than usual
  • Severe cramps or nausea

Dealing with these issues can be frustrating. Our compassionate, knowledgeable doctors understand what you’re going through. Seeking the help of an experienced professional is the only way to resolve your problems.
