Patient : I am 18 and my periods are very irregular. I first started with I was 13 and they were normal to begin with. I was last on in January so 5months ago and it was three months before that. When I am on they are very heavy and painfull, sometimes to the point where I can't walk. I went to the doctors last year and they said I was just 'unlucky'. Any help would be much appreciated.
It is likely that you may have developed ovarian cysts, that may produce abnormalities of menstrual flow as described in your case. You need to visit a gynecologist for further assessment through ultrasound examination and proper treatment.
