This is common: When your body has an irregular or early period, you will often have a lighter, heavier, or more spotty period than normal. This is also common if you are ill, taking a new medication such as birth control, or stressed. It can also happen if you are pregnancy, so if you are worried, take a pregnancy test. See your doctor if the period irregularity persists.

Period: It's possible you have Luteal Phase or Progesterone Deficiency along with Estrogen Dominance. You may be having Estrogen breakthrough bleeding as the endometrium may not have had a a sufficient secretory period of Progesterone to prime the uterus for a nice even flow. You should visit your doctor for further evaluation if this continues or does not improve.
