Not necessarily: While not necessarily uncommon to see a slight change in menstrual pattern, it is probably best to consult with your gyn to see if further evaluation (pelvic ultrasound, hormones, etc.) is needed.

Probably not: Menstrual flow characteristics will change as a woman matures. If there is concern about egg reserve then a day two or day three fsh, estradiol, and anti-mullerian hormone tests can be performed.

Menstrual cycles : Menstrual cycles differ in every woman. The length of the cycle can vary from 21-35 days and may involve anything from spotting to heavy bleeding. Various life stressors can change the cycle from month to month. Pregnancy, new meds, illness, travel, weight gain/loss, excessive exercise, STD's, endometriosis, and Polyps can cause changes in periods. Talk to your Dr if the problem lasts more than 6m
