  1. Oh wow thank you for your posts! I thought so far all my life that I have been messed up. I was late menstruating at the age of 16. Entering the 9th grade I barley topped 95 pounds. I have always thought something was wrong with me. My goal in high school was to gain weight and finally I got my period and ever since then it had never been regular. For about one year in my life I was regular every 21 days but that was so often and heavy! I was in college at that point in my life and discovered that certain foods were making me constipated then a few days later I would have the opposite. I was like clock works and I didn't mind the constipation it was not that bad but I was getting my period but then it went away Not sure what to do I went to my doctor and got on the pill but was on and off of it for about 2.5 years. I didn't like having to relay on a pill to get my period. Once I stopped taking it I lost some weight and then didn't get my period for 5 months so I went ot my doctor and she gave me a hormone that would make me get my period and I finally got it but didn't get it again so she prescribe BC again. Although I am not dating or married I do want children some day. I am now 25 and 5 feet 5 inches and very in wait often from 109 -115. I can predict my weight according to how I feel and it is strange. When I feel irritable and bad I am heavier, when I feel good and wanting to go out and see people I weigh less. This has put a huge damper on my social life, dating, and me emotionally. I have been tested for celiac but it came back negitive because I was wheat free for 6 months. I know that Gluten affects me severely after being wheat free for about a year and a half and now gluten free for about a month (but have unknowingly eatian something and felt bad for a few days). Dose anyone know if I will become regular or even get my period? I had blood work done for my position at work and I found out I am anemic could that have something to do with the missed and Very Irregular periods? I would realy like to have children some day if I ever find the right guy Thank You
