My daughter who is 12 and had her period for 6 months seems to be syncing to my period. I am endo (stage 4) which has been operated on and has caused my cycle to be crazy which means ovulation is also everywhere. Will my daughter syncing to my crazy cycles cause any problems with her fertility (obviously a lot later down the track)?

Ask your question
  • I’m not sure that she will sync unless she also has the condition

  • I think I’ve become more regular because of my 14 year old. Hormones are crazy. It must be difficult for your daughter to be irregular, but it is very common, and it is important she learns to listen to her body. If it is causing her distress or too much pain, its worth taking her to your GP to discuss further options. I talked to our GP about hereditary issues and that alleviated my fears.

  • Im sure they wil even out eventually.

  • me mum and my sister where all at the same time also

  • Hormones are catchy

  • I dont think so. Her internal women things will be different to yours. Bleeding might occur the same time. Later on if she has her regular pap smears and other checks like all of us she will have anything detected bothersome.

  • great question but unless your conditions are hereditary, then i would say that she will be fine. Periods are always crazy in the beginning anyway. don’t stress mama

  • I don’t think so, I used to sync up with any female I lived with and even with my next door neighbour at one stage. :)

  • I think you should ask a doctor – my instinctive response is no, but you might want to be sure.

  • I have the same thing, endo and perimenopausal and my 17 year old is regular and making me regular. I wouldn’t worry about it but if it bothers you, mention it to your Dr to be certain.

  • I’m not sure I think this may be a question for ur gp but I have heard of this before

  • Hope some of these answers have helped to alleviate some of your concerns. Also; companies give out packs with samples, information and competitions to win prizes; for teenagers. May be worth checking out. :)

  • No do not worry most kids have out of wack periods and periods will sync to whoever has the highest hormone levels. its nothing to stress about. oh and they dont always sync up either its not as common as people think.

  • It will take a few years for your daughters cycle to actually settle down. So I wouldn’t worry to much at this time.

  • it shouldnt make a difference to her periods, just keep an eye on her regularity, if it starts getting a little crazy just check with your dr for reassurance. my period didnt even out or regulate naturally until after i had my first child, i was on a form of the pill at 15 for regular period purposes only, i was not sexually active yet. so dont stress too much if her period is not perfectly regular.
