But I was just at the doctor, and my mom always makes fun of me for going for every little thing.

and about my period, i looked at my calendar and it seems that i always get my period a week early, i thought it was earlier then that, but is that normal, or would you call that irregular?

celery, I'm afraid you'll have to go again. Greenish abnormal discharge certainly is an indicator of something wrong (it could be a yeast infection or gonorrhea), and there's a good chance that it won't go away on its own. Why risk your health? Besides, if you don't go now, you may start having other icky symptoms, and then you'll have to visit the doctor when the disease has already progressed. If you would like, you can tell your mom about the greenish discharge, and it's likely that she'll agree that it's not normal and needs to be taken care of.

So do you mean that for example you used to get your period the second week of the month and now you always get it in the first week of the month? You can ask your doctor when you go, but this doesn't sound necessarily bad. Maybe from now on, you'll always get your period "earlier" In any case, young women often experience somewhat irregular cycles, so you're not necessarily abnormal,

Kindness and honesty can be expected only from the strong.
