Keep missing periods and I want to know why

Posted , 1 user is following.

Hey. I'm a 13 year old, but I got my period early, a month before I turned 10. I have periods every 5-6 months and I want to know why. My periods came normally, every month exactly for the first 2 years (age 10/11) but then it changed drastically.

I don't get the blood, but around the time of when my period is supposed to come I get the worst cramps and mood swings. I went to a Gynecologist, who ordered ultrasounds and such and he said I had Immature HPO axis, which means my body was still developing and figuring out the whole period business. He prescribed Progesterone pills to increase my blood flow. I got my period after 6 months that time.

That was a year ago. Now I got my second period since then, 5 months 3 weeks. But my blood is black and very light flow, while I normally have an extremely heavy flow, to the point where I changed my Maxi pads every hour. The blood is black and it smells very very bad, worse than usual. My period started 2 days ago and it feels like I'm at the end of one of my normal cycles. I suffer from migraines and have them more frequently now, to the point of a migraine nearly everyday.

Could medication be causing the late periods? I'm currently taking Imipramine medication to treat my nighttime bed-wetting. I take 600 mg NSaids for my migraines, and daily vitamin supplements (vitamin D3). I have low iron, inherited from my mom, and take iron drops. I'm overweight but exercise daily for an hour and eat pretty healthy.

I have been to MRI and X-rays for my migraines and back pain but nothing showed up on them. The ultrasound was clean and I have taken several blood tests as I have allergic reactions but nobody knows why. I want to know why I have irregular periods. I was tested for PCOS, which my mother had but came out clean.

Please, any advice would be great!
