My period is coming about...
My period is coming about every 6 weeks. I am 33yrs old and never been on BC and no kids. Is it normal for them to be so far apart lately? They used to be every 4 weeks faithfully!
Also, I have never had a Pap smear (yes I know I should) but I have bad anxiety with this because I was sexually molested in high school.

It had been 6 weeks for the last 4 cycles. Period is the same except for the timing. No changes in body, no mood swings, and only on allergy medicine

Thanks for the information

If you have had regular cycles of four weeks before and now the cycle duration has lengthened, then there can be various causes mostly related to hormonal imba***** *****ke polycystic ovarian disease, ovarian cysts, fibroids, thyroid disorders, unmanaged diabetes etc. But since you have no other symptoms like change in body weight, excessive bleeding or excessive pain during menstruation, there seems no cause of immediate worry. Stress is another major reason which can delay periods.

I would recommend you to wait, take a good diet with fruits and green vegetables, start a regular exercise if not doing it before. If there is no change in the next 2-3 months or you develop some other symptoms, then you need to consult an Ob-gynae for a detailed evaluation including hormonal assessment.

I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you, and that I have earned my 5 star rating today! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen (rating me now does not close your question).

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
