Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello,Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** and I will be helping you today.
Can you give me some more information, please?
What is your age?
How many days apart are the periods?
How long does each last?
When was your last checkup with your gyn?
Actually, 26 days apart isn't unusual. Anything from 20-40 is generally okay.
How far apart were they before they started being too frequent?
Okay, now I understand.
There are some fairly harmless causes of frequent periods such as excessive exercise, stress, some medications (such as blood thinners, and hormones meant to encourage endometrial shedding), and women going into perimenopause (the years leading up to complete cessation of periods).
More serious causes are things like ovarian cysts, pelvic inflammatory disease, underactive thyroid, uterine fibroids. Of course the most serious consideration would be endometrial cancer.
I'm sorry it isn't possible to tell you why your periods are so frequent. That is going to require an exam, probably an endometrial biopsy, ultrascan of the abdomen, etc.
Please let me know what additional questions you have.
Then that is definitely not the cause. It must be one of the other dozen or so causes that can cause more frequent than usual periods. If I were your doctor I'd start with the scan and endometrial biopsy. That would detect uterine fibroids. Sometimes all it takes is a D & C to clear things up.
You're so very welcome. I'm sorry it is impossible to diagnose anything without an exam and proper testing.
