I'm 22 years old and for all of the years I've been getting my period (since I was a teen,) it has been "regularly irregular." I would get it one month, possibly the next month, and sometimes every other month. I went to the gyno before Thanksgiving (3 months ago) and before going to my appointment, I had my period in September, then again in November.The doctor didn't seemed bothered by this irregularity; she barely even batted an eye. I tried to get birth control while at the gyno, but they wouldn't give it to me (twice) because I have high blood pressure, which I'm currently on medications for. I also refused the other forms of contraceptive because the idea of the others freaks me out. About three weeks or a month ago, I had sex for the first time with my boyfriend. I had some bleeding and cramps for the first hour or so after, but that's all; I figured this was regular for the first time. He pulled out and masturbated for a little before he came, do he didn't come inside me. I'm still waiting for my period to come and I'm starting to get nervous, it's been almost three months. I know this is pretty regular for my period, but I'm psyching myself out thinking that I'm pregnant. I've been having discharge (white/clear) for the past week or two, and I don't have any pregnancy symptoms, but I think I am making myself paranoid about it all. I'm scared to take a pregnancy test because I don't want anyone else to find out and I'm somewhat in denial that it's possible. Do you think not getting my period is a part of my regular cycle or something more?View Thread
