Can your cycle change when you lose your virginity?

PEER ANSWER

That is a really good question. I honestly don’t know. I’m curious now, too, so I will be checking back to see what our health expert, Sandy, has to say about this one. You should definitely check out her response!

MOM ANSWER

This is an interesting question. The only example that comes to my mind is the most extreme cycle change I have had: pregnancy! With that in mind, let’s both check our health expert Sandy’s answer to your question to see what she can share. Thanks for asking this because there are probably many out there that have wondered the same thing.

EXPERT ANSWER

Your menstrual cycle is mostly under hormonal control. Lots of things can affect these hormones, though. Physical or emotional stress, weight loss or gain, strenuous exercise, and sleep pattern changes are some of the most common things that can affect the regularity of your cycle. The act of having vaginal sex should not really affect the regularity of your cycle, but because you are sexually active, things like pregnancy and infection are reasons to consider as a possibility for the change.

If your period was pretty regular and now you have some changes, see your healthcare provider to talk about what’s going on in your life that might cause the changes you are noticing. Keep track of your period dates. Are you spotting between your periods? Did the length of your bleeding change or does your period seem heavier or lighter? What other things in your life are going on? Did losing your virginity cause you a lot of stress? These are just some of the things to consider before and during your appointment.
