Not to worry.: Having irregular vaginal bleeding or early period can occur while you are seek. Do not worry, just wait and see. If you start getting frequent irreular vaginal bleeding then you need to see your primary doctor or OB/GYN.

Normal: It's perfectly okay to start your period 3 days early. Whether or not related to your infection/poisoning is not easy to ascertain. Regardless, three days doesn't mean that there is anything specifically wrong with your cycle of body. If you continue to have irregularity to your cycle, then consider seeing your doctor or requesting a consult on HealthTap.
