Period problems? Need advice!?

So i have some problems with my period. 3 major ones. One is thats i miss my period alot. Ive never taken any sort of birth control or any pill that would affect if, but i might miss it for a month, or a few moths at a time (most was 3). Also, when i do get it, it lasts longer than the normal 4-6 days, it lasts sometimes up to 9 day. Finally it is a very heavy flow, not every time but most of the time. I frequently have to change products. I never get cramps or anything like that, and its never the same time of the month. If anybody has any information on why this is, how i can fix it , or ways to reduce the flow, please let me know!

    As sway said diet and exercise can affect your flow. Also know that your period doesn't sound so abnormal. I've got a heavy flow and my periods always last more than a week. Birth control can help regulate and even lighten your flow.

    Here are some tips on what foods may help.

    My biggest suggestion is cataloging your diet and exercise regime. Since what you put into your body often affects how it responds and functions, it can be a huge factor when it comes to your period. Try to keep a journal on what you eat on a day to day basis for a few months and also keep a journal for your period, cataloging notes about the flow, any cramping, when it starts, how long it lasts, and how long since your last. It's not a quick solution, but if you can understand your body a bit better, you'll be able to determine if there is something more you can do to regulate your period and get it on a more regular basis. Every woman's body is different, so the best thing you can do is try to understand how yours works. I wish you the best of luck!
