Period twice a year
Hi, I have a huge problem.
Ever since I've started my period, when I was 12, I've only had my period twice or less a year. I was on medication, as well as the pill even then it was only monthly for about 2/3 months, when i've stopped using the pill my period just didn't come anymore.
Every month or about 28 days, I have a white residue and this keeps on for about 5/7 days. Mostly it does not smell bad but sometimes there is a funny vinegar smell.
I was pregnant about 5 years ago and I had a baby on 32 weeks, after that 2 years after that I was raped could that be the problem.
I struggle to become pregnant even though, there is nothing wrong with my husband.

It sounds like you re not ovulating. You need to see a doctor to find out why. It is unlikely to be due to the rape.
The discharge could be thrush. the treatment for this is Canesten.
