    Spotting in-between periods.

    Hey I'm in my early 20s and for the past year or so I have been spotting in-between periods most months. Is this normal? Should I go to the docs or am I just worrying over nothing? Also, I'm definitely not pregnant so that can't be the cause. Thanks!

Every time I'm on my period I somehow seem to suddenly get tonsillitis and a bout of either sores on the lip of my vagina or I get swollen glands in my armpit area. I have never had an std, but I will continue to test myself for as long as this goes on....

    No Period After Stopping Birth Control

    I stopped taking birth control in January, due to some stomach issues I was having. I was previously on it for about three years. Since coming off it, I have not had a period. That's four months. I am not pregnant. Does anyone have any idea of what I should do, or is it just a waiting game? Thanks!
