Let's start with the basics: how many years has it been since you first started getting periods?

It's actually fairly common for it to take as long as five years or more for periods to become regular for some folks.

So, I wouldn't worry about this so long as you know you're taking good care of your health otherwise, like eating enough and getting enough rest and daily activity.

With that "string of skin," it's hard to know what you mean, as it could be a couple things. Do you feel pretty educated about your genitals and all the parts of them? If not, it might make the most sense for us to start by giving you some more of that education and information.

That's okay: a lot of people feel that way.

So, let me link you out to our most basic rundown of the vulva and vagina, then if that doesn't clear up what this might be, we can keep talking. [Smile]

So, this is something you're seeing as coming from, rather than connected to the outside of, your vaginal opening?

If so, might this piece sound like it's describing that to you: My Corona: The Anatomy Formerly Known as the Hymen & the Myths That Surround It?
