Stop menstrual cycle?

If you mean litterally stop and not happen, it could be 2 things. First, if you are older (35+) it could be menopause. It could also mean you are pregnant.

You are 47 years of age and you keep having your period every three weeks what could be the problem?

Have you ever thought that this could just be your menstrual cycle? Many women have a cycle of 21 days, there is nothing wrong with this. If your menstrual cycle has never been like this, it could be your body changing as your getting older and approaching he menopause. I always say if you are worried about something then go see your doctor.

Can a woman get pregnant at 47?

Yes, what makes you think a women at 47 or older cannot get pregnant? If a women still has her monthlly menstrual cycle, then she can get pregnant..but sometimes there are complications at birth.

What if your period came a couple of days before it usually do?

In most cases, it's nothing to worry about. Very few young women (and almost no teenagers) have a totally regular cycle of 28 days. Sometimes, your period will be early, sometimes it will be late. But as long as it gets there eventually, your body is functioning normally. Some women find their menstrual cycle becomes more regular as they get older. Of course, if you are in pain, if your period does not arrive at all, or if your menstrual cycle is heavier than normal, you may want to talk with your doctor about it.

How do you stop menstrual cycle from coming on?

There really is no way to stop a period just for that reason. Of course it will eventually stop when you get older. People can also lose their period from things like chemotherapy (a cancer treatment).

Is it normal for 17 day cycle period?

It is NOT normal . I have experience, my periods USUALLY last about 17 days. the SHORTEST was 10 days. For me though, its 17 days, and its HEAVY. IT IS CALLED " menorrhagia " It's basically a reproductive disorder. BUT, as you get older, this will disappear and your cycle will be regular, you know the 5-7 day cycle kinda thing, :) - Experience.

Can you still breastfeed and have your period?

Yes, breastfeeding shouldn't be interupted because of your menstrual cycle. Breastfeeding will continue as long as your child feeds of you, once you stop feeding preferable after the child is 12 months or older your body will discontinue producing milk.

Can you go through menopause at the age of 21?

No, you do not usually get menopause at age 13. Menopause is when your menstrual cycle ends forever and that occurs between the ages of 45 and 55 give or take a few years. You can, however, get your period (the beginning of your menstrual cycle) at that age.

Can you lose your virginity without starting your medistrational cycle?

First, I think you mean menstrual cycle, and second, yes. Losing your virginity has nothing to do with menstruation. You may bleed when you have sex the first time, but that is not the same thing as your period. Considering how completely uninformed you seem to be, I suggest not having sex yet. Get yourself educated, maybe wait until you are a little older.

What is a tectonic cycle?

It is when the tectonic plates form and grow older.

I just started my period and don't have a mother so can you tell me how many days until I have it again?

It depends on how long your individual cycle is. For most girls the answer is in about 21 to 24 days. The period is part of the menstrual cycle. The full cycle normally takes between 23 to 35 days, with 28 days being average. The cycle runs from the beginning of one period to the beginning of the next. Your period is said to begin when you have definite menstrual flow, not from when you begin spotting (finding drops of menstrual blood on your underwear, or on toilet paper.) Your period, or menstrual flow, can last from 2 to 7 days, with the average being 4. So, if you have an average cycle, 28 days, and if your period lasts an average 4 days, then 28 - 4 = 24 days before you begin again. However, when most girls start having periods, it takes awhile for their bodies to adjust and settle into a regular cycle. So, it could vary a lot from month to month for a while. It's a good idea to keep some mini pads in your purse or backpack at all times, until you have it figured out. And it would be an even better idea to talk to your school nurse, your family doctor, or a female relative like an aunt, grandmother, or older cousin. If no one like that lives near to you, maybe a friend's mother?

Is it normal to have a very small amount of blood a week before you are supposed to get your period after having sex a month ago?

It would depend on how old noted female was. if she was younger then 20, yea, one's menstrual cycle may not be fully fluent yet. however, if noted female was older then 20, i would recommend going to the doctor. it could be a number of things such as whats commonly refered to as "splotting".
