Am I the only one who suffers severe headaches, vomiting, chills then passing out during PMS (premenstrual syndrome)! Wondering if anyone can help me with this one. My period only lasts for a day and then stops.

I am 19 and started my menstrual period about 3 years ago. They have never been very regular and I haven’t had one for 3 months. I am not pregnant but have been vegan for a few years.

I started my period at about 9 and the next morning my breasts swelled up. I am still feeling the pain but my breasts have come back to the normal size.

I am experiencing abnormal periods, morning there will be a flow but not in the night; same repeats in the morning again. When I consulted a doctor she said me to reduce my weight. My weight is 78 kgs.

My menstrual cycle is 25 day long. When I understand that, I know when I miss my period.
