Let's see about getting a bigger picture here.

Over the last six months to a year, on what dates did you get your period? before then, had your periods been regular for a few years?

Also, what kind of pain are you experiencing, and how severe is it?

I started off with my period coming on the 7th then after a few months it always came on 14th ish. I started the pill earlier this year becuse i had enetred a relationship and had bad period pains (should have mention that) then stopped in may (i think) because i was no longer in a relationship and indoors mostly also i have very bad memory due to mental disabilities it was one less thing to worry about, it was fine for a month or two and my periods were normal and painful then BOOM cant keep up with them. The feel like period pains sometimes then other times like stomak pains and cramps and im always out of energy.

The thing about charting periods correctly, is that knowing the exact dates is important, because we chart accurately by knowing the number of days in each cycle. And if a period literally comes right at or around the same date of months and months, it's actually probably fairly irregular, since there aren't the same number of days in each month.

So, it sounds like you might actually have a history of irregular periods, rather than what's happened the last two cycles. Am I also getting that it sounds like you have a history of very painful periods, or pelvic or abdominal pain in general?

Yes, the have always been a few days late but never so close together. I had my period a week before i went on holiday so i didn't bring any pads, then on the second day on holiday it came again. Im 20 I havent have any of my hpv jabs and I sort of just stopped taking the pill with out seeing a doctor first because I had move and thought it would be ok :/ Ive also had anemia in the past but i wasn't due to heavy periods I just genrally have low levels of Iron but at this rate they are going to be very low. Plus Im a vegetarian so i take lots of supplements.

Unless you're simply not eating enough food, this likely isn't about your veg diet. Anemia, however, may be part of the extra pain you're having. It's also always okay to go off the pill unless you're being prescribed it for a medical condition.

Have you considered going to a Brook clinic for this kind of healthcare instead of waiting to get in the larger system? I believe they should be able to see you and help with this without your NHS registration change due to your move going through, but you can always call your local Brook clinic to ask and make sure before heading over.
