HELP: “I haven’t had my periods and I’m not pregnant”

Anonymous from Sebokeng writes:
I’m a 23-year-old woman in a
relationship. I haven’t had my
periods for a couple of months.
At first I thought I was pregnant,
then a fluid which smelled like I
was on my periods came out of my
private part. I took treatment, but
nothing has changed. Please help.

Irregular periods happen to
young women and this can
be unsettling. Periods are not
only irregular but they also can be
different each time they appear.
Your fluid may be a form of
menstruation. It may also be a sign
of infection. Get the clinic to put you
onto a contraceptive to regulate
your periods and always condomise.
