Okay so my periods are EXTREMLY irregular. My last two periods were in june and July of 10. My June period was 17 days long...I had to get medication from my dr to make it stop. My July period was the normal 7 days. Now I'm on my period again and it's the 9th day. My dr said my periods were crazy at first because my body was getting used to bein off BC, but what could be the problem this time? I was taking medicine for my face (something starting with an M) and stopped because I was getting sick and it was givin me vaginal pain and yeast infections. Would that be the problem? I also have very dry itchy pink skin on my labia...would that be the medicine too?

Since this irregularity has clearly been going on for a very long time now, if you've had your periods for more than five years, what I'd do is see an OB/GYN who can really look into this.

We really couldn't venture to guess about what's going on, especially without information from you from a doctor who ran some tests, etc. But a gynecologist is the right person to help you out with this and do all the homework involved to try and find out what's going on.
