What does it mean when you have vaginal bleeding and you’re not on your period or pregnant?

Someone’s period can actually fluctuate based on what’s going on in their life.  This means that stresssickness, or change in physical activity can make a period act differently.

While sometimes menstruation happens on the traditional 28-day cycle, plenty do not.  While this can be healthy and nothing to worry about, it may be a good idea to make an appointment if you find yourself worrying about your period. Our Teen Clinic practitioners can offer tips and strategies for regulating the period, and they’ll make sure you’re healthy.

It’s important to note that if you are sexually active (meaning you’re having oral sex, anal sex, vaginal sex, or any genital to genital contact, irregular bleeding can also be an indication of some type of infection.  Or if you are having some sort of contact where semen can come into contact with the vagina, pregnancy can be a possibility as well.

You can call Teen Clinic at 303-442-5160 to make an appointment or just to ask more questions about your period!
